Anyone have any info on this? R36? Updated R35?

I've been wondering the same thing. I think they could be these cars @Lunchbox20 mentioned that will come in new "heritage colors". I'd be shocked if they dropped the R36 so suddenly.

A new Nissan GT-R will be unveiled today. Watch the live event right here at 2:30 p.m. JST / 5:30 a.m. GMT.


Here's what to expect with this model and the future GT-R.

"Picture this. It's 2007 and the original Audi R8 is celebrating its one-year anniversary while the mechanically related Lamborghini Gallardo is blowing the fourth candle on its birthday cake. 2007 also happens to be the year when Nissan introduced the GT-R R35, a supercar still in production to this day. Not only that, but Godzilla is sticking around for at least one more year as the 2022MY is about to break cover in Japan.

There have been countless reports about how the GT-R will evolve for the R36-gen model, but we've also heard rumors about Nissan's plans to give the current car a series of final updates. According to the latest yet-to-be-confirmed intel, the twin-turbo V6 engine will receive a mild hybrid setup courtesy of a 48-volt starter generator. Not only will it make the iconic VR38DETT engine more efficient to pass stricter emissions regulations, but it will add some extra low-end punch.

The slightly electrified powertrain is rumored to replace the gasoline-only GT-R altogether as early as 2022 and soldier on for a couple more years. Not all hope is lost for purists as a Final Edition is allegedly in the pipeline as the swan song for the reputable supercar without any electric assistance. It's said to offer a little over 700 horsepower and come in only 20 examples, likely at an astronomical price tag considering the Nismo model already costs from $210,740 in the United States.

Taking into account there haven't been any leaks or teasers about the JDM-spec 2022 GT-R, it could be a sign the model year changes will be limited to design tweaks as it's been the case in recent times. Perhaps a new not-so-special special edition is in tow for the Land of the Rising Sun, with fresh paint jobs and wheels complemented by subtle cabin revisions.

The latest update for the R35 was introduced by Nissan in April for a US-spec GT-R Nismo Special Edition featuring a clear-coated carbon fiber hood with an exposed weave. Pictured here, the built-to-order supercar is dressed in Stealth Gray and rides on 20-inch Rays forged aluminum wheels. It's being offered in Japan as well, so the upcoming livestream will be about something else.

The event is scheduled to start at 2:30 PM local time on September 14, meaning it's set to start at 5:30 AM GMT if you're watching from Europe or 1:30 AM if you'll be checking out the livestream from the east coast of the United States. It's a rare occasion to see a GT-R-related livestream, and while the odds of something substantial being unveiled are slim, we're still eager to see how Nissan is perfecting the performance machine nearly 15 years after its launch."

YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today unveiled the new Japan-market GT-R. The model line-up includes two limited grades, the GT-R Premium Edition T-spec and GT-R Track Edition Engineered by NISMO T-spec. All are scheduled to go on sale in the second half of October.


The two T-spec limited editions are specially equipped with exclusive carbon ceramic brakes, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, an exclusive engine cover, and an exclusive badge for front and rear. A total of 100 units of the limited-edition models are planned for sale, with successful purchasers selected by lot.

Two new body colors, Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade, have been added to the T-spec options. Midnight Purple is an advanced version of the color used on previous generations of GT-Rs and is inspired by color-shifting of the aurora borealis. Millennium Jade exudes sophistication and conveys a quiet, yet powerful presence.

The name T-spec represents the GT-R’s philosophy of leading and shaping the times and is inspired by the words trend and traction. As a trend maker, the GT-R is created to always be ahead of the times, and the car’s ability to drive with robust grip — a key characteristic engineers have always worked hard on — make it a traction master.

The Nissan GT-R Premium Edition T-spec also has an exclusive interior design, Rays forged alloy wheels (bronze), and suspension that takes advantage of weight reductions below the springs. An expanded wheel-rim width has increased tire rigidity, enabling smooth and sensitive handling.

Developed with a focus on enhanced driving performance, the GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO T-spec is specially equipped with an exclusive carbon-fiber roof and trunk lid. GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO is a grade based on the standard model enhanced with NISMO technology.

Here's the press release Nissan USA released on the T-spec GT-Rs. A limited amount are going to be for sale in North America this winter. I love this midnight purple they're using for the car.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today announced a special, limited production 2021 GT-R "T-spec" edition, which will be available in two iconic body colors and with a range of upgraded features.

Slotting in above the GT-R Premium grade, the new, limited-volume GT-R T-spec adds wider front fenders from the previous Track Edition, gold-painted RAYS® forged aluminum-alloy wheels and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Body-colored door mirrors, black hood ducts and T-spec badging complete the exterior changes. Also added are carbon ceramic brakes with brake air guides from the GT-R NISMO.

Most notable about the new GT-R T-spec are the two exclusive exterior colors – Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple. Millennium Jade was previously offered on the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür, one of the rarest GT-Rs ever. With the name inspired by the Nürburgring racetrack, only 718 V-Spec II Nür units were produced – with just 156 carrying the Millennium Jade color. This is the first time this color will be offered on a GT-R in the U.S. market.

The new Midnight Purple is a modern interpretation of the Midnight Purple III from the R34 V-Spec, which was limited to 132 units, and the 2014 special edition Midnight Opal R35 GT-R that was limited to only 100 units worldwide (50 in the U.S.).

The T-spec interior includes a special "Mori Green" interior color, premium semi-aniline leather-appointed seating with pearl suede accents, quilted Alcantara® headliner and additional T-spec badging.

Under the hood, GT-R T-spec customers will find the legendary, hand-assembled twin-turbo VR38DETT 3.8-liter V6 engine, rated at 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. The refined powerplant is backed by an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission with GT-R's unique independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system.

The 2021 GT-R T-spec joins the previously announced GT-R NISMO Special Edition with a very limited number of models available for sale in North America this winter. Pricing for the GT-R T-spec and GT-R NISMO Special Edition will be $138,4901 and $215,6901, respectively.

Maybe it's just the angle in most of the photos but it seems like they've added more green in the Midnight Purple compared to the color on the R34 GT-R.

What I love about Millennium Jade is how from far it might not look like much, but up close and from different angles it starts to show how unique it really is.

It's definitely the "subtle" option of the two colors.

It's a bit lighter than I expected in person. When I think of Jade I think of a deeper green.
