Price is one of the things that has been being a recurrent topic whenever we talk about the 2018 Nissan GT-R. The fact is that most people are talking about $200,000. This is a pretty high price especially when we look at the current model standard price that started at $110,000. However, the higher trim, the NISMO, costs $175,000. So, we will just need to wait and see.

2018 Nissan GT-R Redesign and Changes

Although we haven’t seen any exterior images of the new 2018 Nissan GT-R, we believe that Nissan will continue with the same approach: to provide you with an aggressive, muscular, and aerodynamic car. 

One of the most common rumors we have been reading and listening to is concerned with the fact that the 2018 Nissan GT-R could lose some weight. And this is always a good thing since it will be easier to drive and handle. Plus, since it also affects the performance, this should be the path taken by Nissan. Although we still don’t know if Nissan will make a bet on high-strength steel, on composite materials, or both, the fact is that the entire industry is turning to these and this manufacturer should stay behind.

Although Nissan hasn’t confirmed many things about the new 2018 Nissan GT-R, they made sure to confirm the fact that the new 2018 Nissan GT-R will have hybrid power. Based on this, some people have been suggesting that it should be based on the GT-R LM NISMO – the Le Mans racecar. However, this is a powerful car that has 1,200 BHP. So, we don’t actually believe it will come with so much power but we’re inclined to admit that the new 2018 Nissan GT-R should have at least 700 BHP, which is clearly a lot.

So, under the hood, you should expect to see a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine that should be coupled with a single electric engine.

In what concerns the transmission, we believe it should come with an eight-speed auto transmission or higher.

2018 Nissan GT-R Interior

In our opinion, you should expect a complete redesign of the new 2018 Nissan GT-R. Although most people still believe the current model has one of the best interiors in their class, the truth is that Nissan should be able to surprise us. We are counting on an upgraded sports style handling, an amazing handling, a functional backseat, a very spacious cabin, and other race features.

In what concerns to the technology included, you should expect to see a multi-function touchscreen display, customizable dash options, a hard drive navigation system, a tire pressure monitoring, a backup camera, curtain airbags, among others.
