New 2022 Nissan GTR R35 Final Edition Price – The R35 will apparently come out with 710 horsepower bangs in 2022 when Nissan is rumored to be introducing the Final Edition. It will be almost 15 years old at the time, and the swan song is expected to be a limited-run affair that is limited to about 20 units.

If that amount of horsepower seems familiar, it’s because the special model will allegedly use the same powertrain as the GT-R50 by Italdesign and its mighty 575-pound-feet (780 Newton-meter) torque.

Best Car Web claims the last limited edition R35 will be named Final, with it to be revealed sometime in 2022, while the R36 is expected to debut the following year.

According to the Japanese publication, the Final will be a collector’s item, with only about 20 units up for grabs with a high price tag of about 40 million yen ($AU 518,360).

As you can remember, the GT-R50 uses a highly improved version of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, further tuned by Nismo and equipped with the turbocharger of the GT3-spec GT-R race car. The powertrain offers a larger intercooler along with a high-flow fuel injector, along with reinforcements made for a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and other major components.

Each Final example will be equipped with a handmade 3.8-liter turbo-petrol V6 that delivers a massive 530kW of power, the Best Car Web said.

The Japanese publication also reported the Final engine will be based on the GT-R GT3 race car, which suggests it could be the same unit used in the GT-R50 by Italdesign, a multimillion-dollar-plus limited edition that marks the 50th anniversary of the sign.

Best Car Web magazine also said the GT-R R35 Final Edition will cost 40 million yen at home in Japan, which manages to reach about $377,300 at current exchange rates. That’s far more than the 2021 GT-R Nismo available in the United States of $210,740, but a relative bargain compared to the GT-R50 by Italdesign and a $1 million sticker.

In gt-R50 by Italdesign, GT-R engines are upgraded with competitive specification turbochargers, larger intercoolers, high-flow piston oil jets, revised camshaft profiles, high-flow fuel injectors, optimized ignition, and revised intake and exhaust systems.

These mechanical changes provide 530kW (+89kW) and colossal torque of 780Nm (+128Nm), outputs that can also be set for finals.

As is always the case with GT-R reports, take the latest gossip with the proverbial pinch of salt. That said, it would make sense for the R35 to bend over with a strong version given the hardware is already available.

Beyond the R35, the next-gen model is widely believed to be electrified in one way or another, possibly using a kinetic energy recovery system adapted from the GT-R LM Nismo race car used at Le Mans. Automotive News claims the R36 could indeed arrive in 2023.

As reported, Nissan is considering electrifying the GT-R by incorporating the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) in the R36, similar to what was used in Nismo’s poor GT-R LM prototype from 2015.

The KERS system in GT-R LM race cars feeds energy onto a pair of flywheels from the front brake and is capable of sending that energy to the front and rear axles via an independent drive shaft.
