When it comes to all-out, go-fast goodness, the skies open up ever time discussion turns to Nissan’s outrageous performance coupe, the GT-R, which was sadly denied to American buyers for too many decades. With the availability issue remedied, and the GT-R now safely available at Nissan showroom, the manufacturer has released 2023 pricing for both editions of this no-compromises spaceship.
Be honest: Can’t you see this coupe rather easily translated into a NASCAR Next Gen car? Coming back to reality, the GT-R is offered as two models. Pricing for the Premium edition will start out at $113,540, which will buy you a GT-R with the base, if that’s the proper word, powertrain, consisting of a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged DOHC V-6 rated at 565 horsepower, mated to a dual-clutch, paddle-shift six-speed manual transmission and Nissan’s ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system. This is the base model, remember? If you’re willing to part with $210,740, you can step up to the 2023 GT-R NISMO, which adds the turbochargers used on Nissan’s GT-class racing engine and boosts output to a robust 600 horsepower.
