Hybrid Nissan GT-R Due in 2022 : R35 Final Edition

Final Edition R35 GT-R 710 horsepower

Bestcar web has some information about the coming R35 GT-R, the Final, and Hybrid Editions. The R35 GT-R has been around a long time. Since 2007 long time. In the car world that is forever. However many people fail to realize that the R32/R33/R34 GT-R were around from 1989 to 2002 with mostly evolutions vs revolutions in layout over that time. The R32 and R34 share many more things in common than differences.  How to Buy and Store an R34 GT-R in Japan until 2024 (

Best car says the final edition, will also will likely mark the end of the combustion engine will produce 720 ps/ 710 hp, and be based on the GT3 version of the VR38dett.  At 40,000,000 yen ( ~$379,000 USD 2/15/2021) and only 20 units (Like the Z-Tune) expect this future classic to be the R35 GT-R to own.

At the end of 2022, Bestcarweb says that we should expect a mild hybrid R35 GT-R. This mild-hybrid doesn't seem like it would be around long, unless the final edition is even further out.  Using a 48 volt system the Hybrid GT-R will be able to meet ever increasing and difficult to meet worldwide emissions regulations.  There are places in the world where new gasoline cars will be mandated out of existence starting in just a few years. More countries following suit soon after. 

The aim is to clear the noise regulations by making the engine sound mild while improving fuel efficiency by covering the torque in the middle range with the motor.

I actually just gathered parts for a mild hybrid system for an RB26dett, or Nissan Skyline system. A mild hybrid system allows you to "cheat" some parts of emissions testing.  Since most all emissions testing is done at low speed, and fairly low load, adding a small electric motor into the mix, will make the gasoline engine work less.  If you can get start/stop to work, then there are periods during the FTP testing, that the engine isn't running, and isn't emitting any emissions.  We didn't make the test, we just make cars try and meet what you tell us we have to meet. 

Not an electric turbocharger. Laugh with me please. Please.

Someone asked me what car I am going to run this on. The funny part was I didn't have an answer. I wasn't really thinking about the car, just the system, and trying to make it work.  I know the early BAS on the Saturns had issues with belts and tensioners related to start and stop.

The Honda Clarity battery pack was priced right. 48 volts. 1.2kW 14 3/4 inches long
6 inches wide 4 1/2 inches tall  24lbs

So pretty compact, and not that heavy.  Weight is always a concern, as we dont want to add any more weight than we have to. You will take away all the benefits by adding too much weight.
