2020 Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition revealed

To celebrate 50 years since the launch of the first GT-R, Nissan has released a GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition package. The package offers three “heritage” exterior colour schemes – blue with white stripes, pearl white with red stripes and silver with white stripes. The colours are inspired from the KPGC10-based race cars. The “Bayside Blue” is the first time Nissan is offering the famous blue shade from the R34 Skyline GT-R model on the R35.

Comparo: 2019 Nissan Kicks vs Honda HR-V vs Hyundai Kona vs Mazda CX-3

Comparo: 2019 Nissan Kicks vs Honda HR-V vs Hyundai Kona vs Mazda CX-3

First drive: 2019 Nissan Patrol Y61 Super Safari, Falcon & Gazelle X in the UAE

We actually drove some of these new models, marking our first time properly driving a Y61 after all these decades in the UAE.
