Nissan Reveals Two Special Edition GT-R Models

The latest chapter for the Nissan GT-R takes shape with the introduction of two new, limited-production special editions to close out the 2024 model year. Building on the changes announced for the 2024 GT-R, the T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition pay homage to the performance vehicle that has been an iconic nameplate of the Nissan lineup for decades.

The GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition honors the takumi master craftspeople responsible for hand-assembling each GT-R VR38DETT engine, according to company officials. The engine badge acknowledging the takumi dedicated to its creation will feature red-etched writing, and the engine bay will house a gold VIN plate.

The red engine badge signifies attention to precise engine tolerances and component balancing during assembly, making these examples of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 even more desirable.

Additionally, the T-spec Takumi Edition stands apart thanks to its Midnight Purple paint job – a reference to some of the Skyline/GT-R line’s most iconic special editions – and exclusive Mori Green interior trim.

Like the standard 2024 GT-R T-spec, the Takumi Edition also receives several thrilling mechanical enhancements, including GT-R NISMO carbon-ceramic brakes, a gold-painted version of the NISMO’s RAYS 20-inch forged wheels, NISMO-tuned Vehicle Dynamic Control and wider front fenders, according to Nissan.

The GT-R Skyline Edition brings the iconic name from overseas to the U.S. Building on GT-R Premium, it wears Bayside Blue paint and features a stunning new Sora Blue interior color scheme. Once a staple of the car’s color palette, Bayside Blue was “retired” after the R34-generation GT-R and revived in 2019 for the 50th anniversary edition model.

Details and pricing on the 2024 Nissan GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition will be announced at a later date. Both models are expected to arrive at select U.S. Nissan dealers this summer in limited numbers.
