Nissan has revealed two new special edition GT-Rs, each featuring paint colours designed to pay homage to the legacy of the R34 Skyline GT-R.

Two new special edition GT-Rs

The 2024 nissan gt r will be available in two new special editionsNissan has decided to embrace the rich heritage of the R35-chassis 2024 Nissan GT-R, which is now sixteen years old and legally able to drive itself. This summer, two new special editions will be released, drawing inspiration from beloved models of the esteemed JDM R34 generation. Additionally, a historic badge will be introduced in the United States for the first time.


To begin with, Nissan has decided to utilize the Skyline name for the R35 chassis GT-R. The GT-R Skyline Edition is derived from the GT-R Premium trim, which serves as the "base" model with a respectable 565 horsepower. However, it distinguishes itself with the inclusion of Bayside Blue paint, a color previously exclusive to the renowned R34 Skyline GT-R and the 50th Anniversary edition in the 2019 model year.

The interior showcases a complementary Sora Blue color scheme, creating a unique blue-on-blue effect rarely seen in contemporary machinery. The Bayside Blue hue is reminiscent of the iconic Calsonic-sponsored racing Skylines from the 1990s, although not an exact match.

For those unfamiliar with the history, the latest generation of GT-R models no longer bear the Skyline badge, as the Skyline product range in Japan has moved away from the R35 chassis. Instead, the more understated coupes and sedans carrying the Skyline name in the domestic market utilize the V35, V36, and V37 chassis (depending on the model year) and are marketed in other regions as the Infiniti Q50 and the now-discontinued Q60.

2024 gt r skyline edition 2 3The GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition represents another exclusive variant of the 2024 Nissan GT-R, designed as a tribute to the skilled craftsmen responsible for meticulously assembling each GT-R engine. These artisans, referred to as Takumi, have personally autographed their names on a finely etched plaque that adorns every VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine since the introduction of the R35 chassis.

The T-spec Takumi Edition pays tribute to the skilled workers behind the creation of powerful factory-built engines in Japan. The addition of a special trim hinting at a farewell to the R35 chassis in 2024 further fuels speculation about the future of this model.

The GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition is distinguished by its Midnight Purple paint, a favorite among classic Skyline GT-R enthusiasts worldwide. This particular color is quite rare on any Skyline GT-R and was available in at least three different shades. The author notes that the paint on the T-spec Takumi resembles the LX0 paint code, which can appear greenish in certain lighting conditions.

In addition to the unique exterior color, the T-spec Takumi Edition features a Mori Green leather interior, possibly inspired by the hint of green in the Midnight Purple paint. Performance-wise, this special edition GT-R comes equipped with carbon-ceramic brakes from the GT-R NISMO, along with NISMO-tuned Vehicle Dynamic Control. The front fenders are wider to accommodate gold-painted RAYS 20-inch forged alloy wheels. While pricing details have not been released, it is anticipated that both the GT-R Skyline Edition and GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition will be available in limited quantities this summer.
