Nissan Showcases 50th Anniversary GT-R at 2019 New York Auto Show
The Nissan GT-R is now on its 50th year, and the Japanese carmaker is celebrating the car in grand fashion by showing off a Limited Anniversary Edition at this year's New York International Auto Show.
The 50th anniversary GT-R comes in three two-tone exterior paint combinations including Bayside Blue/ white, Pearl White/red, and Super Silver/white. The car also a unique gray-finished interior, complete with exclusive steering wheel, shifter, and embossed seats. Other custom touches include color accents on the wheels, Alcantara leather headliner and visors, and prominent anniversary badging.
Under the hood lies GT-R's hand-assembled 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine that produces 565 hp and 633 Nm. A Track Edition gets 600 hp and 652 Nm along with optional carbon fiber roof and Brembo carbon ceramic rotors and calipers.
Hiroshi Tamura, Nissan GT-R chief product specialist, called the car an "everday, everytime, super sports car," and added that "this GT-R brings the excitement and energy of the race track to the road."
