While Nissan has yet to confirm the death of its legendary R35 GT-R, rumors of its demise are swirling. In the meantime, American customers are getting a pair of heritage-inspired special editions for 2024, though production of these models will be very limited.


The two models serve as a nod to the GT-R's long-standing history, along with the hard work that goes behind each sports car––particularly its hand-built twin-turbo V6 engine. The T-Spec Takumi is oriented more towards the latter, while the Skyline Edition takes a stroll down memory lane and revives the GT-R's Bayside Blue paint option.




Starting with the GT-R Takumi T-Spec, this special edition honors the small group of craftspeople who work on every last detail of the sports car's V6 engine. Each unit is put together by one out of four craftspeople part of what is known as the 'Takumi'. While these people put tons of dedication into each unit built, the engines that power each Takumi T-Spec have been built on an even higher level of precision, and they are adorned with a gold plaque denoting the VIN number in red lettering.


Elsewhere, the T-Spec Takumi borrows a set of upgraded carbon ceramic brakes from the GT-R Nismo, while also featuring bulkier front fenders and a tweaked vehicle dynamic control system. All examples will be finished in an eye-catching shade of Midnight Purple with its stunning iridescent effect. The forged 20-inch wheels are finished in gold, while the interior is wrapped in Mori Green upholstery with matching trim elements.



The GT-R Skyline Edition, meanwhile, looks to the past for inspiration. It revives the Bayside Blue paint option that graced the iconic R34 GT-R Skyline, while pairing that with an interior bathed in Sora Blue leather. While the T-Spec Takumi edition adds on a number of mechanical upgrades, this model does not.


Nissan hasn't told us exactly how many of each special edition will be produced, but it did mention that supplies for both will be "very limited" when dealers begin receiving deliveries this summer. Pricing remains a mystery as well, but we're expecting these special-edition GT-R models to be very valuable, which means they will far exceed the already demanding $121,090 base price for the standard sports car.
