Report: Some news is in about the next-generation Nissan GT-R, expect hybrid tech

Whether we like it or not, the GT-R is aging and it is inevitably on its way out. But fear not, as word is from UK’s AutoCar is that the GT-R is still in the works for the next-generation. And thus far, it will feature technology showcased on the next-generation Le Mans racer–this means the use of a high-performance hybrid powertrain.

According to the report, the next-generation GT-R is bound to utilize the same technology as the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO. Technicalities of course are still in the unknown, but it has been confirmed in the past that the GT-R will becoming a hybrid.

Power will still be mostly supplied by the brand’s famous R38DETT 3.8L twin-turbo V6, which is said to be paired with a F1-style KERS system co-developed with F1 Williams. A total of nearly 800hp is expected–though due to the unique process of assembling the R38DETT, power outputs will most likely vary as per handbuilt engine.

When should we expect it? Probably sometime next year for a 2016 model year.
