Next-gen Nissan GT-R concept will be a UFO-like supercar with extreme design

Start your engines: the next-gen Nissan GT-R supercar is set to be electric only and inspired by a UFO – and it will be rolled out before 2030.

From a 2024 POV, the futuristic feel should set the right tone for ringing in a new decade.

The extreme design of the successor of the Nissan GT-R was inspired by the Hyper Force concept car.

Nissan will reportedly unveil the successor of the GT-R before the end of the decade.

The model, which was first unveiled at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show was developed alongside NISMO, Nissan’s motorsports and performance optimization division.

This car was notable – among other new models at the show – for its UFO-like aesthetic.

Its two-tiered, aerodynamic exterior provides both strong downforce and high cooling, aided by the light-forged carbon wheels.

The Hyper Force is futuristically lightweight due to being constructed mostly from carbon fiber.

It also boasts UFO-like styling with a large front bumper, side canards and a huge central air intake.

Scan the eyes downward and you’ll see the large front fenders with integrated active air vents above the wheels and aero-styled Dunlop tires.

What’s more, the grille-like front panel is flanked by LED strip headlights and a pixelated badge.

Proof, if needed, that this was a covert Nissan GT-R preview.

The Hyper Force has futuristic butterfly doors and cameras over side mirrors.

The rear end was also a clue with taillights, prominent diffuser, and large wing indicating a strong connection to the Nissan GT-R.

Step inside and the cockpit looks like it’s straight out of a racing game.

The car has two modes and the GT-R clues: “R”(racing) and “GT” (grand touring).

In “R” mode, the cabin is lit up in red and an intuitive cockpit provides the driver with data.

This includes information on tire grip, air pressure, power distribution, and other information vital for racers.

Engage “GT” mode, and the cabin is transformed to a relaxing blue, with the information given to the driver focused more on comfort.

It includes immersive infotainment, audio and air conditioning options.

The all-electric powertrain includes a solid-state battery capable of outputting up to 1,000 kW or 1,340 hp.

Power is steered to both axles via an e-4ORCE all-wheel drive system.

In its powerful NISMO spec, the 2024 Nissan GT-R can accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 328 km/h (204 mph).

It boasts 592 horsepower with the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine linking to a six-speed BorgWarner dual-clutch transmission.

It’s unclear how much of the Nissan Hyper Force concept car will be in the futuristic production model – but it seems like with this supercar spun from spider silk, the sky is the limit with automotive innovation.

Tantalisingly, Nissan program design director, Giovanny Arroba, told Autocar last week that the “shapes, proportion and stance” aren’t unrealistic.

“It’s quite daring but a tangible dream to achieve by the end of the decade,” he said.
