Nissan shared this video today about the 2020 GT-R NISMO's upgraded turbochargers. They're the same turbos found in the GT-R GT3 race car.

Impressive for what's probably the last year of the NISMO R35 GT-R. Some styling changes would have helped.

I wonder when they'll retire the GT-R... or replace it.
Apparently a Nissan GT-R R35 Final Edition is Coming 2022 with 710 Horsepower:

The R35 Godzilla will apparently go out with a 710-horsepower bang in 2022 when Nissan is rumored to introduce a Final Edition. It will be nearly 15 years old by then, and this swan song is expected to be a limited-run affair capped at approximately 20 units. If that horsepower count seems familiar, that’s because the special model will allegedly use the same powertrain as the GT-R50 by Italdesign and its mighty 575 pound-feet (780 Newton-meters) of torque.

Best Car Web magazine also says the GT-R R35 Final Edition is going to cost 40 million yen at home in Japan, which works out to about $377,300 at current exchange rates. That’s a lot more than the 2021 GT-R Nismo available in the United States from $210,740, but a relative bargain compared to the GT-R50 by Italdesign and its $1 million sticker.

Great video by Rory. I love his videos and review style. What did you think of his review?
I enjoyed it I mean every GTR review for the last 4-5 years is basically the cookie cutter its old it doesnt compete with the upper eschelon of performance cars anymore but its still amazing to drive since now that its hung around so long its ironically an old school car.

so the the key to a good GTR review is how you present those same talking points and Rory is always great. The GTR reviews I dont like are the gotcha ones for clicks when they put it up against a toyora yaris GR in the rain and say wow look how this little car held its own against the aging NISMO

It is funny what context and perspective can do. from 2008-2015 its a video game. with no personality... it drives for you... it lacks true drivers feedback. then maybe 2017 until now after everything else caught up. its old.... and more like a muscle car..... very analog compared to the current crop of super cars. full of personality as it has a really visceral drive feedback due to its raw mechanical feel.

literally the same car but with opposite reviews just because of time.

Yeah the way he set the review and the tone was spot on for the car. The ones that bug me are the ones where the reviewers somehow seem surprised that the GT-R is still fast...almost as if they've forgotten that it's been pretty much the same recipe since it initially launched.
