Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition celebrates, well, you know - Autoblog

2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition

The GT-R Nismo features revised bodywork, with greater use of carbon fibre to save weight and new downforce-generating front bodywork based on the GT-R GT3. Powering the vehicle is the same 572PS/633Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 from the 2017 GT-R. Power output remains 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque.

There is also a revised six-speed dual clutch transmission, which also features a reworked "R mode" performance setting with more aggressive downshifts. Grippier Dunlop rubber will help make the most of the snappier power delivery.

When furthering the GT-R's evolution, Nissan's engineers began with finding where they could save weight. Nissan says the synchronized downshift rev-matching system "allows drivers of any skill level to change gears like a professional race vehicle driver".

A new carbon ceramic brake system has been added for 2020 to haul things back to reality with 16.1-inch rotors up front and 15.3-inch rotors in back.

Fordham Student Falls to Her Death After Climbing University Clock Tower
In 2013, a school official told the Fordham Ram that the tower was "rather dangerous" and therefore "off limits" to students . A 22-year-old student was killed after tripping and falling from Fordham University's clock tower.

Underneath the auto, Nissan's GT-R engineers updated the Nismo's suspension tuning to improve the car's cornering stability, but also reduce the jarringly stiff ride-quality the GT-R Nismo was known for.

The 2020 370Z is available in Base, Sport, Sport Touring, and Nismo trims, with the 50th Anniversary based on the Sport model.

It goes on sale later this month, though pricing hasn't been announced.

Small modifications were made to the GT-R Nismo's already stout drivetrain.

Like the 50th Anniversary Edition Nissan 370Z that was also unveiled in NY, the commemorative GT-R amounts to an appearance package, with color schemes inspired by Japan's GP racing series. Pearl White with red stripes, Super Silver with white stripes and iconic Bayside Blue from the R34 Skyline with white stripes are the colours on offer.

The 50 Anniversary Edition package consists of a two-tone paint scheme that is available in either white with red accents or silver with black accents.

Every 50th Anniversary GT-R will have a gray interior and come with a unique steering wheel and shift knob, a center-console plaque, special embossed seats, an Alcantara headliner with unique stitching, and Alcantara-wrapped sun visors. The high-performance model is celebrating its golden jubilee with a special edition that will come in three trims-GT-R Premium, GT-R Track Edition, and GT-R Nismo.

Power comes from a familiar 3.7-liter V6 engine that produces 332 hp (248 kW / 337 PS) and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) of torque.
