Nearly $100K Separates The Cheapest And Priciest 2020 Nissan GT-R

What does an extra six figures get you?

The Nissan GT-R soldiers on into the 2020 model year with a few changes and one big reason to celebrate: the 50th anniversary of the GT-R nameplate itself. Of course that warrants a special edition, but first let's talk pricing (none of these prices include the $1,695 destination fee).

The GT-R Premium, the so-called base model, begins at $113,540. For reference, the 2019 GT-R began at $112,235. The GT-R Premium 50th Anniversary Edition carries a price tag of $122,040 while the GT-R Track Edition will set you back at least $145,540. And then there's the GT-R Nismo. Nissan increased its price tag to $212,435 – nearly a $100,000 price difference compared to the cheapest 2020 GT-R. For the record, last year's GT-R Nismo was priced from $177,235.

Given those numbers, what's new with the 2020 GT-R? The base GT-R Premium features revised turbocharger tuning, burnished exhaust tips, and new 20-inch forged wheels. Total output remains unchanged at 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque.

The interior also has hand-stitched semi-aniline leather in Hai Gray. The 50th Anniversary Edition, pictured here in Bayside Blue, adds an extra $8,500 over the base model, but buyers will have a choice of three colors that reference the GT-R's racing history in Japan. The Bayside Blue has a four-coat application process and those white stripes add some cool contrast. Additional colors are Pearl White with red stripes and Super Silver with white stripes. The interior has a unique gray leather upholstery.

The GT-R Track Edition now has the same 600 hp and 481 lb-ft version of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 found in the GT-R Nismo. As for the latter, Nissan can justify its price increase because it added the same turbochargers used in the GT3-class race car, though overall horsepower remains the same. Thanks to an optimized flow rate, acceleration response is increased by 20 percent. A few other upgrades include improved high-speed stability, gearbox shift control, and various lightened components.

We know Nissan is currently at work on the next generation GT-R, which is widely rumored to be a hybrid, if not an all-out electrified supercar.
