Nissan has sold the 2022 GT-R in Japan, but not in the US. Here we settled for a long run of the 2021 GT-R until it sold out, and then … crickets. We didn’t know what was to come until Nissan just turned on the lights by revealing pricing for the US market 2023 GT-R. Honestly, it’s like 2021 never left; neither the features nor the MSRP have changed from two years ago. The destination charge has gone from $200 to $1,895, the only way to tell one from the other. MSRP for Godzilla after destination:

  • GT-R Premium: $115,435
  • GT-R Nismo: $212,635

Both trims are powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 and a six-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to all four directions. They both sit on driver-adjustable Bilstein DampTronic dampers and 20-inch 15-spoke RAYS alloy wheels. The Premium is rated at 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. Nismo upgrades its engine with parts from the GT-R GT3 racer, such as larger turbos, so it makes 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The racier version also gets retuned suspension, larger Brembo carbon-ceramic rotors and carbon fiber cut among your changelist. ​​​​​​​That said, we don’t know where Nismo is hiding its $97,000 price increase over the base car. Maybe now that the GT-R is back, we need to put together some side-by-side test drives.

As for comfort features, owners will find Nappa leather throughout the cozy interior and lightweight sport seats to sit on. The eight-inch infotainment touchscreen is an immediate callback to the R35’s arrival, the display size frozen in amber since 2009.

Recent wide-ranging comments from Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida came to the case in November 2021, when he told Coach on the next-generation GT-R: “Whether we electrify a lot or not at all, we can achieve a lot in terms of power. But we are definitely creating a new platform and our goal is clear: the GT-R must be the fastest car of its kind. He must own the track. And he has to play the game of advanced technology. But that doesn’t mean it has to be electric.”

Nissan’s questions about the all-electric GT-R are the same as those asked by all supercars sports car Manufacturer From Porsche to McLaren to Lamborghini: Is Electric Vehicle Technology Ready for the Daily Driver for Track Day? So far the answer is no. Uchida didn’t give any hints as to when we’ll see what’s coming, only saying, “The GT-R is a professional car and we need to develop it for the future.”
