Nissan GT-R gets one final facelift before new-gen kicks in image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan will be applying one final facelift to the impressive GT-R until the new generation of the model will be officially unveiled.

The Nissan GT-R has had an interesting career, managing to beat a lot of records in terms of performance and price and ending up as a dream car for many petrol heads. But now, a lot of years after being originally put into production, the model in question is getting ready to receive one final facelift, before the new generation will be officially unveiled.

The announcement has been made by the British automotive media, quoting Shiro Nakamura, the company’s chief creative officer, who said that the next-gen GT-R will be introduced in 3 or 4 years, while the carmaker’s sports car chief in the UK, James Oliver, said that this will “embrace electric power”, basically confirming that the new GT-R will be getting a hybrid powertrain.

The styling of the new generation of the Nissan GT-R is said to be influenced by the one of the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo and it should continue to have a boxy appearance. The new GT-R will be officially introduced in 2017 / 2018. More details on it are limited for the moment and will probably be announced in the years to come.
