It’s been over 13 years since the Nissan GT-R first went into production. So, to say that it is aging may be somewhat of an understatement. However, the Nissan GT-R has had continuous updates over the years and the last hurrah will reportedly be a mild-hybrid.
BestCarWeb reports that the 2022 Nissan GT-R will be electrified in the form of 48V mild-hybrid, with the assistance of an integrated starter generator (ISG). The aim for Nissan is to meet the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.
With electric boost, the 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine produces a maximum combined output of 600 PS/652 Nm. As before, power goes to all four wheels via a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission.
But before that arrives, there will reportedly be a limited-run (20 units) Nissan GT-R Final Edition, arriving next year in 2022. The engine is said to be boosted to 720 PS, which is identical to the power output in the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign. Estimated price is 40 million yen, which is around RM 1.5 million.
The mild-hybrid Nissan GT-R on the other hand, has an estimated price of 16 million yen, around RM 600k. It will reportedly go on sale in 2022 and replace the combustion-engine-only versions. The Nissan GT-R is expected to soldier on for another 2 years until 2024 before reaching the end of the line.
The quest for automotive knowledge began as soon as the earliest memories. Various sources information, even questionable ones, have been explored including video games, television, magazines, or even internet forums. Still stuck in that rabbit hole.
