The 2022 Nissan GT-R NISMO Exposes Some Skin

Nissan just updated its ultimate sportscar, the GT-R Nismo for 2022 by adding a new exclusive color and handling goodies, while cutting its weight even more.

The GT-R Nismo gets a new exclusive color: Stealth Gray—the same one found in the recently launched Navara PRO-4X. Nissan says it’s inspired by track tarmac GT-Rs which have set records in the past.

Aside from the new color, the GT-R Nismo receives a new clear-coated carbon fiber hood. Opting out of the painted hood not only exposes the intricate carbon weave found underneath, but it also helps shed 100 grams off. It also gets new 20-inch Ray aluminum forged wheels with red accents. For the first time ever, the new Nissan logo adorns the GT-R Nismo, too.

The race-derived 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 is rated at 600 horsepower thanks to high-precision, weight-balanced parts including the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, flywheel, crank pulley and valve springs dialed in with tighter tolerances. This delivers snappier revs and quicker turbo spooling, according to Nissan.

More importantly, the GT-R Nismo gets the biggest brakes fitted ever in a Japanese car. The large Brembo calipers and carbon ceramic rotors measure 410 mm (about 16.1 inches) in front and 390 mm (15.3 inches) at the back.

For the Philippines, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is available on an indent order basis through the Nissan High-Performance Center along Quezon Avenue. It is currently unknown whether the 2022 model will offered here though.


  1. Hi carguide/ulysses! Sorry to burst your bubble on the “stealth grey” color, but the GT-R uses another type of special stealth grey color very different from the navaras. They have totally different paint codes! 😁 The navaras look more lighter boulder gray, the Gtr ones are have bluish tint, you can immediately tell even on pictures. The new 400Z nismo special stealth grey is probably the one using a the same shade as the Gtr though. They’re the ones that look quite similar to each other.

    1. All the vehicles you mentioned--GT-R, Z, Navara all use the same term, "Stealth Gray." It may be a case of different markets calling their colors differently. Without access to the actual paint codes, I just based the term on what info was available at the time.
