The “New” 2024 Nissan GT-R Is Almost PHP 12.5M In PH

The GT-R moniker is indeed legendary for Nissan, due to its undeniable heritage and prestige. Many expected the upcoming model to be an all-new one but were instead greeted by yet another facelift of the R35 platform. When it was initially introduced in 2007, it was a supercar killer – but at PHP 12.445M in the PH, is the 2024 Nissan GT-R the supercar itself?

When it comes to the R35 GT-R over the years, we’ve heard nothing but praises. It was a vehicle way beyond its time when it was released; even prompting Porsche to call out its Nurburgring lap time back in the day. Of course, the automaker quickly came out with proof and ridiculed its rival in the process.

More than a decade later and the platform has seen quite a lot of changes as well as one or two major facelifts. The vehicle has gotten incrementally better over time, but the competition has made leaps and bounds in the same timeframe. The 2024 Nissan GT-R claims to be the most aerodynamically efficient with a newly-redesigned front fascia, front lip spoiler, rear spoiler, and canards to minimize drag. This should lead to more violent straight-line launches and quicker times around any track.

Meanwhile, stock power from the famed 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 is now bumped up to 600 horses, previously exclusive to the Nismo. This should give the newer unit that additional oomph that will glue you to your seat and keep you happy.

Everything else should be the same with the previous Premium variant of the vehicle. There’s no doubt that the GT-R will continue putting smiles on people’s faces despite its relative age.

When it comes to price, the 2024 Nissan GT-R will set you back PHP 12.445M in the PH. Some may not be so willing to lay out this amount for a refresh, considering the previous facelift cost only PHP 6.675M just a few years ago. That was honestly the deal of the century as the price of the vehicle crawled up to PHP 8.990M last year, although a jump of over PHP 3M might not be for everyone.

We saw the Nismo version at the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this year, but pricing for that is still unknown. We’ll definitely post updates if there’s any news.
