2016 Nissan GT-R Hybrid

2016 Nissan GT-R

History of Nissan GT-R

First Nissan GT-R was developed to be grand tourer addition to the wide Nissan Skyline range. It was produced from 1969 until 1974 and from 1989 until 2002. Separate nameplate was developed between 2002 and 2007, two concept vehicles were presented on Tokyo Motor Show, one in 2001 and the other in 2005. Production version came in 2007 and it was presented on Tokyo Motor Show during the same zear. Few months after that in December 2007, production version arrived at the dealer shop in Japan. One year later, this model arrived to United States and Canada. New model took ''Godzilla'' nickname of its Skyline predecessor. It won vast number of awards, among which Supercar of the Year award from Top Gear in 2007, Car of the Year award from Evo Magazine in 2008 and Car of the Year award from Motortrend in 2009.

New Model Overview

If you tell anybody about hybrid grand tourer 10 years ago, that person will definitely think you are mad. Now when 2016 Nissan GT-R Hybrid is more than just a wild rumor, all this doesn't sound mad anymore. Nissan's CEO Taro Tsujimoto said that Nissan GT-R has alwazs been a paradigm of affordable performance, and that its constantly beating its more expensive rivals from Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren range. New hybrid supercar is just confirmation of these words, and it will bring fuel efficiency segment to the new level in grand tourer class.


We don't think the exterior is going to change much from the current look of the regular GT-R. Some of the changes that can be expected in exterior segment with the hybrid model are those that will make it lighter, more aerodynamic and wind resistant. So we might expect some additional carbon-fiber parts in the new model's body. Maybe some of the carbon-fiber elements like: roof, hood or trunklid are going to be taken from new Nissan GT-R Nismo model. In addition to that we can expect some large rear spoiler also made with carbon fiber and maybe some air intakes too.

2015 Nissan GT-R Interior


This is one of the segments whose design and functionality is really hard to predict. We think that it will come with most of the regular GT-R gear like: aniline leather upholstery with hand contrast stitching, display with some nice graphics that's probably going to be made in cooperation with Polyphony Digital and  is going to include hybrid system, battery and fuel efficiency information together with another seven info pages from the last year's model, carbon fiber interior trim and top of the line Recaro seats.

2015 BMW i8 engines


2016 Nissan GT-R Hybrid will come with some latest technology when it comes to performance. Rumors say it will be able to deliver more than 800 horsepower and it is going to come with new ATTESSA II Electric All-Wheel-Drive. It will come with 3,8 liter twin turbo V6 engine that's going to be paired with two electric motors driving the front wheels with an independent vector torque and seven speed dual clutch transmission. Nissan engineers predict 800 horsepowers output and 870 pound feet of torque, but these figures are not final yet, since this model is expecting its fine tuning. It will be able to reach 60 mph in only 2,5 seconds, but when driving in  its Ultra Attack Mode it will be able to reach this speed in only 1,8 seconds which is just a little bit faster then Corvette Z06.

Price and Release Date 

Price and release date haven't been revealed yet. We know that this model is definitely going to cost more than regular GT-R, that's been much more affordable than almost any other vehicle in its class. Hybrid version will be at least few thousand dollars more expensive than the regular version that could be bough last year for $97,600. Release date is still unknown, it will probably be at the end of the big marketing campaign which already started 6 months ago. We expect this model to be available at the dealers in the end of 2015.

McLaren P1

Other Possible Options

Nissan GT-R is probably one of the most competitive gran tourers, that's mostly because of its price since it is drastically less expensive than most other vehicles in its class. Some hybrid supercar models that are much more expensive are: BMW i8, Porsche 915 Spider and McLaren P1. There is of course the king of the hybrid supercars, LaFerrari, which offers much better performance than the model we're talking about, but for the price that can't even be compared with the one of GT-R.

Driving a gran tourer will make your world go round. Women will love you, guys will hate your guts.
These cars are mostly driven by the celebrities that are one hit away from rehab and house appliances commercials that come afterwards as the only way to repay your beach house and fancy car mortgage. There's also one bright thing when it comes to GT-R, and that's its price, so if you are aspiring celebrity you won't have to do all kinds of disgraceful commercials and guest appearances to pay off your fancy ride, since its one of the cheapest out there. Another good thing is that its hybrid, so less money for gasoline either, and any woman or business partner will rate this vehicle same as any other fancier one. So who drives Nissan GT-R? Smart celebrities, that's who. People who haven't let go of their image, but they are not so mad about it they will spend their last dime just to look good.

Nissan GT-R in Need for Speed


From movie rolls, GT-R was seen in Shameless series, plus two movies from Fast and Furious saga, where most of racier models have regular guest appearances. This model is also seen in Need for Speed video game, also regular place to find this type of cars. There are a lot of celebrities who drive Nissan GT-R, some of them are: Usain Bolt (who owns a golden GT-R), Rickie Fowler- famous golf player, Apollo Ohno Borrows- famous skater and Robert Downey Jr.

What Girls Think About Nissan GT-R?

We made a standard poll and asked around and most of the girls we talked to had nice impressions when it comes to Nissan GT-R. Their comments went from: ''WOOOOW'' to ''Is this a Batmobile?''. One girls with a little more knowledge told us that this must be a very expensive car that can be driven only by the ''Wall Street and the upper class'' and that ''Middle class must be financed for this''. So we guess that whole Nissan strategy when it comes to GT-R is very successful.

This is actually Nissan Skyline GT-R, but its also the prettiest girl I've found when I googled: Nissan GT-R hot girls
