We are pleased to present this 2018 Nissan R35 GT-R NISMO, finished in Pearl White over black leather with red accents. Representing the ultimate high-performance version of the sixth-generation Nissan GT-R, the NISMO model features revised aerodynamics, lightweight wheels, and a track-tuned suspension along with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine paired with an advanced all-wheel-drive system. Capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH in as little as 2.5 seconds, the NISMO once held the lap record around the Nürburgring Nordschleife as the world’s fastest volume production car. Preserved under full paint protection film, this one-owner 2018 example shows under 1k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.
The Pearl White exterior finish has been completely covered with Xpel Ultimate paint protection film by the specialists at Ai Design. A ceramic coating has also been applied over the full exterior, wheels, and brake calipers. The seller notes that holes have never been drilled in the front bumper for a license plate, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX. Compared with a standard GT-R, the NISMO features a lightweight carbon fiber trunk lid as well as a full carbon-fiber aerodynamic kit including revised front and rear bumpers, a larger front splitter, rear valence extensions, side skirts, and a fixed rear wing. Additional air ducts have also been integrated to help cool the brakes, the front grille has been enlarged to allow increased airflow, and the front fenders are slightly wider to accommodate the black 20” RAYS-manufactured forged aluminum wheels, which are clad in high-performance Dunlop SP SPORT MAXX GT600 DSST CTT run-flat tires.
Inside, the driver-focused cabin features power-adjustable and heated Recaro front seats upholstered in black leather with red suede inserts and deviated stitching. Dark grey suede also covers the dashboard and steering wheel while carbon-fiber trim is used throughout the center console and doorsills. The multi-function steering wheel sits ahead of a 220-MPH speedometer, a red 8k-RPM tachometer, gear selection indicator, and fuel and temperature gauges. Standard features include an 8” multimedia screen with navigation, NissanConnect and Apple Carplay, Bose audio, and a multi-function display that allows the driver to customize the layout of vehicle performance data. This example has been fitted with a custom integrated Escort radar/laser detector system by Ai Design, which features a CAD-designed 3D-printed housing for the controller and screen mounted above the rearview mirror.
The GT-R NISMO is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine which is rated at 600 HP and 481 lb.-ft of torque, and paired with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Power is delivered to all four wheels through Nissan’s ATTESSA E-TS all-wheel-drive system, which allows this R35 to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 2.5 seconds with a top speed of over 200 MPH. The NISMO model comes equipped with a reinforced chassis and a special track-tuned suspension featuring NISMO-specific springs and Bilstein DampTronic shock absorbers. The rear end has also been specially developed for the NISMO and features a hollow anti-sway bar to reduce weight and body roll. A new battery has been recently installed and CARFAX shows maintenance by the Bruce Bennett Nissan dealership in Connecticut.
This sale will include a clean title (lien). One of the quickest and most high-performance sports cars on the market, the GT-R NISMO has certainly earned its venerable namesake. Do not miss your chance to become the next owner of this outstanding 2018 example with less than 1k miles traveled from new.
