So for 2021 with Nissan narrowing the GT-R lineup down to just the Premium & NISMO models, this means the 50thAnniversary Edition & Track Edition trims are eliminated. The only other change for the 2021 model year is that the Bayside Blue paint color is now available on the Premium trim.
The MY21 NISMO is improved by developments from the GT3 racing program include reshaped turbo vanes for quicker spool-up for enhanced response & a more aggressive delivery of power across the rpm range. NISMO engineers are involved during the entire development process with engineers also having to be capable drivers & development drivers fluent in the language of engineering. They only sign off on a NISMO product when it meets their exacting standards.
Carbon-fiber body panels reduce overall weight & create additional downforce. The Bilstein® DampTronic® suspension is combined with a NISMO-tuned hollow stabilizer bar to increase the amount of cornering grip, while still providing a civil ride. The Nissan/Brembo carbon ceramic braking system has increasing friction with the NISMO employing larger rotors, pads & an especially rigid caliper wearing special paint that will not change color even at temperatures over 1800 degrees. The lighter weight of the braking system also reduces unsprung weight, enhancing handling & steering response.
The M21 NISMO comes with 20″ RAYS® forged aluminum wheels giving a further reduction in weight allowing the driver to react more quickly to driver input or road conditions. The open design enhances cooling of brake components & the tires were designed using supercomputer analysis with a wider contact patch, greater cornering grip & reduced rolling resistance.
The suspension setup is tuned for stunning agility & handling finesse without compromising refinement. The springs and custom-developed Bilstein® DampTronic® dampers in the front & rear suspension. They are specially tuned to deliver exceptional grip levels & progressive handling response at the limit.
To enhance the NISMO’s already rigid platform, additional adhesive bonding was added to key spot welds for increased body shell rigidity.
Once we have more updates we shall add them to this article.
