Limited Edition Nissan GT-R Created for Japan Market

By Paul Joseph

Japanese carmaker Nissan has created a special edition version of its GT-R model exclusively for the Japan market, celebrating the brand’s association with Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka.

Limited to just 50 units, the special edition GT-R was designed in collaboration with the 21-year old US Open champion.

During the design process she helped create three new exclusive paint finishes: Brilliant White Pearl, Meteor Flake Black Pearl, and Midnight Opal.

The limited-run model is based on the 2019 GT-R Premium and is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 that churns out 565 horsepower and 467 ft-lb of torque.

The special edition GT-R also features a dry carbon spoiler with LED brake lights to set it apart from the standard variant. Additionally, it gets a gold serial plaque in the engine bay denoting its rarity.

There's no word on pricing yet, but this is expected to be announced very soon in the New Year.

The current-generation Nissan GT-R (R35) has been on sale for almost 11 years, and the next generation version has been eagerly awaited for a significant amount of time.
