Nissan has announced that the GT-R will be discontinued in 2025, sending the R35-generation model into retirement after 18 years on the production line. On this occasion, the Japanese automaker began producing limited editions. For the home market, the GT-R Premium Edition T-spec and GT-R Track Edition have been made with engine components from the GT-R Nismo Special Edition, and American customers will be offered the T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition, which reference the pages of the model’s history.

The GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition pays tribute to the Takumi craftsmen who hand build the VR38DETT engine. A red inscription will be engraved on the engine nameplate, and a gold plate with the VIN code will be placed in the engine compartment. A red engine icon signifies increased attention to precise engine tolerances and component balancing during assembly.

The T-spec Takumi Edition stands out from other GT-R variants with its Midnight Purple paint (a nod to some of the line’s most iconic Skyline/GT-R special editions) and exclusive Mori Green interior trim. The GT-R Skyline Edition references the rich beauty of Japan’s skyline. Based on the GT-R Premium, it is finished in Bayside Blue and features a new Sora Blue interior color scheme.

Once a staple of the car’s color palette, Bayside Blue was retired after the R34-generation GT-R and was revived in 2019 for the model’s 50th anniversary edition. Details and pricing for the 2024 Nissan GT-R T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition will be announced at a later date. Both models are expected to arrive at select US Nissan dealers this summer in very limited quantities.
