2025 Nissan GT-R: Specs, Interior, Price & Release Date

Word is that the Nissan GT-R is now living on borrowed time. Nissan just announced updates to the lineup for the 2024 model year here in the States, while the Japanese market is showing off the 2025 model year version. But the rumor is that production of that 2025 model is going to be pretty limited and, in fact, it may be a Japanese market-only model. After that, it could be all she wrote for the Nissan GT-R.

Nissan has unveiled its 2025 Nissan GT-R models in Japan, announcing that sales will begin in June. The major update includes enhancements specifically for the Premium Edition T-spec and Track Edition models.

These models have received improvements from the Nismo Special Edition, including upgraded piston rings, connecting rods, and crankshafts aimed at improving the engine’s performance and reducing turbo lag.

In these select versions, the engine compartment features a special aluminum plaque indicating the builder’s name and a gold plate with the car’s chassis number. Those opting for the Premium Edition have the new option of a Blue Heaven interior color scheme.


Nissan has opened pre-orders for the 2025 GT-R in Japan, noting that production will be limited. This limitation might lead to some potential orders being declined if demand surpasses what Nissan can supply.

This detail has sparked speculation that the R35 model might be discontinued after this year, with reports suggesting that 2025 will mark its final year due to production constraints.

Last year, Nissan introduced the Hyperforce concept at the Japan Mobility Show, hinting at a future all-electric GT-R described as a goal to be achieved by the decade’s end. Assuming the R36 model debuts in 2030 and with the R35 ceasing production this year, Nissan will not have a flagship sports car for about 5 years.

There’s hope that another GT-R model, possibly with a traditional combustion engine, might be introduced before 2030 to join the anticipated electric version, though this remains speculative.

2025 Nissan GT-R Pricing

Nissan’s lineup for the Japan-market version of the 2025 GT-R Premium Edition features a range of models catering to different preferences. The 4WD models, equipped with the VR38DETT engine, start with the GT-R Pure Edition priced at 14,443,000 yen.

For those seeking a bit more luxury, the GT-R Black Edition is available for 16,115,000 yen, and the GT-R Premium Edition for 15,587,000 yen. For enthusiasts, the GT-R Premium Edition T-spec, featuring a GR6 dual-clutch transmission, is priced at 20,350,000 yen.

The performance-focused GT-R Track Edition, engineered by NISMO, is priced at 18,535,000 yen, while the upgraded GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO T-spec is the top-tier offering at 22,891,000 yen. These prices include the consumption tax, as recommended for the Japan market.

Additionally, the GT-R NISMO Special Edition models, exclusively tuned by NISMO and also featuring 4WD and a GR6 dual-clutch transmission, are offered in two variants.

The GT-R NISMO is available for 30,085,000 yen, while the GT-R NISMO Special Edition, which likely includes additional features or enhancements, is slightly higher at 30,613,000 yen, inclusive of the recommended retail price with consumption tax for the Japan market.

Trim Levels

Now let’s move to the 2025 model that was revealed for the Japanese market. Nissan offers the GT-R in more trims over there: from the base Pure Edition, you then have the Black Edition, Premium Edition, Premium T-spec, Track Edition, Track Edition T-spec, and finally the Nismo and Nismo Special Edition.

There are production numbers being tossed around, with some speculating that it could be as low as 1,500 units for the 2025 model year.

There’s also no mention of a US market version for 2025, nor is there talk of what’s to follow. I’d have to assume that if this is truly the end of the R35 road, Nissan will at least announce a sendoff special edition for the US market.
