The Nismo gets a new turbocharger design that's been pulled straight from the GT-R GT3 race vehicle, resulting in improved engine response.

What's new with the GT-R NISMO? Powering the auto is the same 572PS/633Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 from the 2017 GT-R. You get a limited-slip diff, a six-speed manual gearbox with a rev-blipper, or you can option in a seven-speed automatic if you're slightly odd. Grippier Dunlop rubber will help make the most of the snappier power delivery.

The fearsome Nissan GT-R turns 50. Nissan says the contact patch has been boosted by 11 percent.

Nissan's also put the top GT-R on a bit of a diet.

The 2020 Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition keeps the car's classic look, but is packed with new tech, including the NissanConnect infotainment system that impressed us in the revamped Micra and Qashqai. The titanium exhaust is also something not previously seen on a standard GT-R, and other areas have been treated to yet more tweaks: suspension changes aim to bring greater stability and comfort, the steering has been revised to be more precise and the brakes have an upgraded brake booster - the result of that should be improved initial response and performance, because the booster engages with less pedal stroke than before.

Pricing still hasn't been announced, but the 2020 GT-R Nismo will hit dealers this summer.

With the GT-R, Nissan set out in pursuit of the ultimate driving pleasure.

Distinguishing the 50th models should be easy thanks to three different two-tone exterior color combinations meant to evoke historical GT-R racing liveries. 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.

Inside, Nissan has graced the birthday 370Z coupe with a range of red appointments - these include an Alcantara steering wheel with a red centre mark, 4-way power-adjustable leather bucket seats with red inserts and piping, red centre console stitching, red-accented tachometer, red gear shifter and 50th Anniversary-badged sill plates.

Rounding out the trio of GT-R debuts is an updated Track Edition model.

The powertrain stays, meaning a 3.7-liter V6 making 332 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.

Braking is taken care of by Brembo lightweight carbon ceramic brake rotors that are larger by 410mm up front and 390mm at the rear, along with revised brake pads.

At the moment, there's no word on price or when the livelier Track model will reach dealerships, but like the other GT-Rs, expect summer availability.
