Nissan Skyline NISMO

2024 Nissan Skyline NISMO

Nissan has released a 2024 limited-edition Skyline NISMO as a nod to the original Skyline car. Historically the Nissan Skyline is a car synonymous with high performance and quality craftsmanship. A 1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R even appeared as one of the prominent automobiles in the second installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, 2 Fast 2 Furious. The Skyline and GT-R models were split by Nissan in 2007 and are now standalone ranges in their own right. 

Nissan promised its fans and loyal customers a unique and limited NISMO vehicle, and this re-designed Skyline has not disappointed. 

The Enginering Behind the 2024 Nissan Skyline NISMO

Under the hood of the famous re-designed Skyline, it shares the same VR30 DDTT with the Nissan Z NISMO. It contains a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V-6, which gives 420 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.  

This amount of torque is considerably larger than in the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport and other Nissan vehicles. It contains the same seven-speed transmission that has been added to Skylines since its introduction in 2008. Adding the Nissan Z NISMO 9G-Tronic transmission would have been better to amplify the vehicle overall. There are two driving modes, Sport and Sport+, which enhance the driving experience by increasing the RPMs.

For this vehicle, Nissan has added a “specially tuned” suspension to their new 2024 vehicle. No specific details have been released so far into what modifications are involved in this, but it is safe to assume that it will be lowers and stiffer than a standard Nissan due to its high-performance features.

The Exterior of the Nissan Skyline NISMO 

From the first look, it is clear that the 2024 Nissan Skyline is a tribute to Nissan’s past. This car’s design has specifically taken inspiration from the original 1964 S54A-1 Skyline GT.   

The exterior of this car is similar to other models in the NISMO range, including Nissan Z and GT-R. The front especially has similar design elements to the Nissan R35 GT-R NISMO. But the back taillights have been designed to replicate the iconic taillights found in the historical Skyline and GT-R vehicles. It includes an exclusive grey exterior color and optional extras, like a sporty body kit with red trimming. 

Under the vehicle lies 19-inch Enkei wheels, designed exclusively for the NISMO range. These wheels are engineered to be lighter, broader, and stronger than the original wheels added to the Skyline GT over 60 years ago. It also comes with performance summer tires that are stickier and give the best traction on the road. The tires are wider on the rear, and it comes with upgraded brake pads and a retuned ABS for the best control.

The Interior of the Nissan Skyline NISMO

Its interior has several notable features that ensure every driver remembers that this vehicle was manufactured for speed and performance. These include the Recaro bucket seats, a red rev counter, and a sportier steering wheel with red accents and racing stripes. The interior is upholstered in leather and suede finishes and NISMO logos. Nissan hasn’t forgotten to add an element of technology, with two touch screens on the left of the driver and synthetic carbon fiber inlays throughout the interior. 


The 2024 Nissan Skyline NISMO will be available at the start of 2024. It has a starting price of $55,000 or 7.88 million Japanese Yen. However, the production line of this limited edition will only create 1,000 units. 

Of these 1000 units, 900 will have the regular Skyline NISMO manufacturing, while 100 vehicles will contain special extras. These vehicles will be even more of a collector’s item as they will have some added extras, including gunmetal wheels, a precision engine, and commemorative badging. These cars will be more expensive to purchase at 9.48 million yen or approximately $65,000. 

Overall, the re-launch of the Nissan Skyline will elate car lovers worldwide. Since this car has always been in a league of its own with no direct competitor, its re-release will be another success for the Japanese automotive company. With the mix of technology from the original Skylines and the newer ranges like Infinti Q50 and NISMO, this car has enough star power to make it an excellent addition to Nissan’s repertoire.
