At Nissan told about the new generation sports auto the GT-R

Nissan calls next GT-R

Nissan Design Chief Claims Next GT-R Will Be “The World’s Fastest Brick”

Styling-wise, Albaisa says the would not resemble the just-unveiled GT-R50 special edition cars, but that, like the current auto, it would be "imposing", have "presence" and be a "beast", even going so far as to call the hefty-looking vehicle "the world's fastest brick".

Chief Nissan designer Alfonso Albys said that they are already working on a new generation of the sports auto GT-R, which will have a unique design and new stuffing.

Coupe GT-R, no doubt, known to the whole world thanks to its endurance, which allows enthusiasts to create "pull" with recoil under 2,000 horsepower and even higher.

That would make everyone to believe that the latest successor of the Nissan Skyline GT-R will be unveiled in a short while.

Albaisa made the claim in an interview with Autocar at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the weekend, where he also confirmed the new-gen sports vehicle would ride on an all-new platform and boast a design that's "something really special" and "more brick than wing".

Albaisa told the British publication that he was constantly "reviewing" sketches of the next-generation GT-R, but emphasised that the platform and powertrain had yet to be finalised. It has to own the track.

"The challenge is on the engineer, to be honest", he said.

Electrification is definitely on the table, but it's certainly not a definite addition for the next GT-R powertrain. "And it has to play the advanced technology game; but that doesn't mean it has to be electric", he explained. It doesn't care what every other supercar in the world is doing; it simply says: 'I'm a GT-R, I'm a brick, catch me'.

The next generation of GT-R powertrain will feature a massive energy, around 786 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque, paired with a newly designed eight-speed dual clutch.

In that, Nissan had devised a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 developed with help from Cosworth, paired with an electric motor assist system.

"It's the world's fastest brick, really".
