A Closer Look at the 2022 Nissan GT-R T-Spec

2022 Nissan GT-R T-Spec

While Nissan’s 2022 GT-R T-Spec boasts a 600 horsepower motor underneath its hood, as well as a powerful and tenacious sports car that rightfully earns its Godzilla nickname. However, according to the review by Car and Driver, Nissan’s formula hasn’t seen much change since it was first introduced in 2009. Comparing this towards other sports cars of its class, this puts even Nissan’s 2022 GT-R T-Spec model behind the times. This car’s interior is considered outdated in design in addition to down-market materials that are also featured among Nissan’s lesser car models. Also according to Car and Driver, due to the limited amount of 2022 Nissan GT-R T-Spec vehicles going into production, its rarity will help its drivers stand out in the crowd whenever on the road or track. The only real positives that gave the 2022 Nissan GT-R T-Spec the seven out of ten scores from Car and Driver was the standard all-wheel-drive that allows for a well-planted, confident handling automobile.

2022 Nissan GT-R T-Spec YouTube Review

DPC Cars offered the details of the 2022 Nissan GT-R T-Spec through their YouTube channel. Within their review, they bring up the two new body colors this version of the GT-R line offers, which are Midnight Purple and Millenium Jade. However, the coloring scheme is the only real new feature that came with the GT-R T-Spec, something of which critics are increasingly pointing out has become boring.

Conclusion

As impressive as the Nissan’s 2022 GT-R T-Spec may seem to the average driver who may not pay much attention to the trends of the automobile industry, this is not the case among car enthusiasts who are more attentive. They continue to voice they would rather see Nissan pay more attention to upgrades that matter instead of color changes.
