The continuous evolution of Nissan's flagship GT-R NISMO takes another step forward with the addition of a new Special Edition, which was previewed today in Yokohama, Japan. The GT-R NISMO Special Edition features a NISMO-exclusive Stealth Gray exterior color, new edition-exclusive 20-inch RAYS forged aluminum-alloy wheels with red accents, and a unique clear-coated carbon fiber hood that exposes the intricate carbon fiber weave. For the first time for GT-R, the new Nissan logo adorns the trunk lid and wheel center caps. A very limited number of the new model will be available in North America this fall. Pricing for the GT-R NISMO Special Edition will be announced at a later date. The GT-R NISMO remains Nissan's ultimate performance super sports car that provides race-proven technology and an exhilarating driving experience for virtually everyone. The GT-R NISMO's VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 remains the heart of the GT-R's drivetrain and is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The GT-R NISMO Special Edition utilizes high-precision, weight-balanced parts for the piston rings, connecting rods, crankshaft, and valve gear components dialed in with tighter tolerances, delivering snappier engine revs and quicker turbo spooling.

The electrification of the PEUGEOT range began three years ago with the launch of the e-208 and, since then, 100% electric models (e-208, e-2008, Traveller and Expert) and plug-in hybrids (3008 and 508) stamped with the Lion have made their mark on the market. In the first five months of 2021, PEUGEOT is the second best-selling generalist brand in Europe in terms of overall sales and is already the third best-selling generalist brand for electrified vehicles. The PEUGEOT e-208 and e-2008 are in second place in their respective BEV segments, gaining segment share month after month.
