R36 Nissan Skyline GT-R design concept by Roman Miah and Avante Design – a vision for the future

The current Nissan GT-R first made its debut at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show and celebrates its 15th birthday in 2022. In the years since its introduction, the model affectionately referred to as Godzilla (like its predecessors) has been continuously updated to keep it relevant and competitive against rivals.

Given its age, rumours of a replacement for the R35 have surfaced every now and then, but the Japanese carmaker has yet to confirm anything of the sort, at least not in an explicit manner. Nissan executives have in the past chimed in on the matter, giving us some idea of what we can expect when and if a successor (popularly dubbed as the R36) is revealed.

One of these titbits came from Alfonso Albaisa, who is the senior vice president for global design at Nissan. In a report from 2018, Albaisa said the next GT-R “would have a muscular character like the R35 so as to retain the GT-R visage of a ‘beast’.”

Armed with this info, many have attempted to render what they think a R36 GT-R could look like, with the latest being from UK-based designer Roman Miah, who collaborated with Avante Design to develop the concept. According to Miah, the concept took over six months of work involving several hundred hours of 3D design.

What you’re looking at here is his vision for a 2023 R36 Nissan Skyline GT-R, which brings back the ‘Skyline’ name as well as incorporating some elements of past GT-R models into a design that is also said to point to the nameplate’s future.

Viewed from the front, we can clearly see influences from the iconic R34 Skyline GT-R, specifically the boxy headlamps as well as the rectangular intakes. The latter items are amplified in appearance on the concept and form part of a comprehensive aero/cooling package that includes a front splitter and vented bonnet.

The double roof is also something not found on the R35, and the attractive stance is a result of the widened fenders that allows for even larger side vents. Meanwhile, the straight-cut look of the fenders appears to be a nod to the KDR30 Skyline Super Silhouette race car from the 1980s.

Progressing down the sides, we find prominent side skirts and six-spoke, TE37-style wheels, while the rear window sports a small spoiler that channels air down to a swan neck rear wing. At the rear, the R35’s curvy boot has been somewhat flattened but continues to be accompanied by the GT-R’s signature taillights that feature four circles.

Further down, there’s a diffuser element that integrates two exhaust exits – one for each side – like what was seen on the limited-run GT-R50 by Italdesign, along with an F1-style LED light unit in the middle.

So, what do you think of the 2023 R36 Nissan Skyline GT-R concept? Is it a fitting design for the next generation of a revered nameplate? Or is there something you would change? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.


What the Nissan Skyline R36 GT-R Could Look Like

Could there be a Nissan Skyline R36 GT-R in the future? Automotive artist Roman Miah teamed up with Avante Design to show fans what such a vehicle could look like. Simply put, it combines the best elements of the R34 with the current R35 GT-R, including its angled roofline, a small rear spoiler and angular fender flares.

One other model it appears to draw inspiration from is the R33, or at least its dual round LED taillights. If money is no object, and you want to track down one of the rarest production Nissan SKyline GT-r models, it would have to be the 1995 Nismo 400R. NISMO originally planned to make 100-units, but just 44-units made it out of the factory before the company ceased R33 production in 1998.

  • Exciting Racing Action — Kids, car enthusiasts, and fans can relive epic races; the car model also makes an iconic display piece as part of a LEGO speed champions collection
  • James Bond Minifigure — Includes a LEGO minifigure of James Bond in a cool black suit inspired by the ‘No Time To Die’ movie, plus a toy wrench accessory
  • Interactive Building App — Comes with a LEGO building instructions app for smartphones and tablets, allowing kids to view the model from all angles as they build

The idea behind this concept was to recapture the design cues and unmistakably Japanese styling of the iconic Skyline’s of the past whilst also looking into the future of GT-R. Collaborating with Avanté Design to develop the concept, which included over 6 months of work and atleast a couple hundred hours of design, development and 3D modelling. We are proud to finally present this to you,” said Roman Miah.


Is THIS the New Nissan Skyline GT-R?

Nissan’s teasing the long overdue next generation Godzilla, the R36 GT-R, and it is one hell of a tease! The R35 GT-R has been withering away on the market for 11 years. And while it’s still fast, and still one of the best performance-per-dollar cars in existence, it’s really starting to lose its shine after over a decade.

Here in America, among enthusiasts, the R35 is even held in lower regard than the earlier generations, like the R32 and R34, and yeah, even the R33. That’s probably because our experience with the name “Skyline” has primarily been through movies like The Fast and The Furious where Paul Walker drove a few R34’s and immortalized them in Americana forever!

It doesn’t help that pretty soon the 25-year rule for importing JDM cars is about to make the R34 legal here in America. And if you made me choose between the R35 and R34, well, it’d be pretty tough to choose.

R32 GT-R – Godzilla


Today, the R32 GT-R is one of the best deals in JDM icons right now, with it’s no-nonsense aesthetic and unlimited tuning potential. You just cannot deny the power and respect the RB26DETT commands, pushing out a serious 276 horsepower, which are insane numbers for its day.

It’s still a great car to look at, and I’m sure it’s incredible to drive. It’s no wonder the damned things are worth real money.

R33 GT-R – Middle Child

And the R33, well, exists. It’s not many enthusiasts’ favorite, but it is a GT-R. This JDM middle child does come with that screaming RB26, now pumping out 301 horsepower, and is now legal for us bald eagles to own.

R34 GT-R – The Hype

Toprank Importers

But if you’ve got maple syrup running through your veins, you may just be lucky enough to be the owner of an R34. Up north in Canada, importing cars requires only that they be 15 years or older, making the R34 a common sight on the streets of Vancouver.

The R34 is the pinnacle of GT-R hype if you grew up on anime and Initial D. Often referred to as a Playstation on wheels, this was the generation that made the GT-R a tech marvel, with models ranging from 327 to 493 horsepower. This is the generation that gave supercar owners a good view of those four taillights in a drag race.

R35 GT-R – Supercar Slayer


Godzilla then came to American shores with the R35 GT-R, which showed its face over a decade ago in 2008. It’s seen some updates since then, but we’re now at the tail end of this car’s production. Most would say that the car is well past its “best before” date, but the specs have been updated just enough to stay not only relevant, but make it a ridiculous performer for its price tag.

Nissan has said that they’re retiring the R35 within two years, and as part of this farewell, Nissan’s sending out the previous generation with a bang, or two.

R35 GT-R50 – JDM On EDM

CAR Magazine

One such example is a car known as the GT-R50. This partnership between Nissan and ItalDesign is a no-limits reimagining of a GT-R with European style, while retaining Japanese construction and performance. And let me just say, yes. Yes, please. I mean, just look at the thing! It’s gorgeous!

The 50 in GT-R50 is meant to celebrate 50 years of GT-R. Sadly, that 50 in GT-R50 also stands for only 50 of these being made. I get it, exclusivity is what makes it special, but I want one of these more than life itself, and it’s sad to know that’ll basically be impossible, since these will be collector’s items on day one.

The GT-R50 isn’t just a pretty face either. Oh no, under the hood will be the ultimate iteration of the VR38DETT that powers the GT-R. The engines under the hoods of the GT-R50 will be handmade and pushed to their absolute limits with over 700 horsepower. It builds this level of power thanks to modified fuel and oil injectors and an enhanced ignition, paired with Brembo brakes and Bilstein suspension.

It’s really a shame so many of these will end up in museums and garages, because you can bet they’re an absolute blast to drive. Only one has been made so far, and it cost a staggering $1 million or more for that lucky owner to acquire. I’m going to guess that’s actually a steal compared to what these will go for in a few years.

Luckily, that’s not the only GT-R powered by this engine in the works. Good news, Nissan is promising a “Final Edition” GT-R to come as the R35 generation wraps up.

R35 GT-R Final Edition – Last Of Its Kind


And it’s a bit cheaper than the GT-R50! The Final Edition will get the engine that this new GT-R50 has without all the fancy bodywork. But, here’s the bad news, the Final Edition is even more limited than the GT-R50! There will only be 20 Final Edition GT-R’s coming off the line, and priced at a hefty 40 million Japanese Yen, or $375,000 USD.

It’s serious money, but considering the amount that every older generation of GT-R is commanding on the used market, it’s probably a strong prediction that these won’t lose a single dollar over the years. It’s probably a wise investment, especially since none of the buyers are likely to, you know, actually drive them.

Now, we don’t know very much about the upcoming R36, but many reputable sources are saying that its heart will likely be a hybrid-based motor derived from Nissan’s Le Mans race car.

R36 GT-R – Hello, Hybrid

The benefit of a hybrid motor would be the instant torque that only electric motors can deliver, compensating for the turbo lag that the R35 is notorious for. This electric motor would be just one component of a hybrid system that would center around a turbocharged gasoline engine.

Once the turbo or turbos spool up, the electric motor would quietly continue to provide assistance to the gas engine, and make for even more combined horsepower. Realistically, we can expect to see a combined number of more than 600 horsepower without batting an eye, which is about where cars like the Audi R8, Mercedes AMG GT R, and BMW M8 Competition are right now.

Yeah, hybrids aren’t just for Ubers anymore. Hypercars out there right now from big players like Ferrari, McLaren, and more are using hybrid power. So, while some purists will be sitting around moaning and groaning about a hybrid GT-R, a move to this type of propulsion would actually put the next Skyline into a whole new ball game.

It’s probably worth a mention that the complication of a hybrid system would add a significant amount of weight, meaning the R36 GT-R would still be given hell by armchair critics for being fat. And I kind of agree with that! Adding onto the whole weight issue will be the fact that quickly moving safety regulations are requiring every manufacturer to stuff a whole bunch of active driving assists into cars, including rear-view cameras, adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, and more. Even more airbags are required now, along with actual structures that have better rigidity in case of a collision. All of this comes with added electronic gizmos and modules, which add even more weight.

Weight aside, the obvious advantage here to a hybrid system would be fuel efficiency, not that anyone’s really counting when you’re buying a GT-R. It does add up at the pumps, though, because while driving the current GT-R in a city setting, 12 miles to the gallon isn’t uncommon at all. Which, with the GT-R being a penny-pincher’s supercar, I guess cost of driving it does weigh heavily.

Now, how the upcoming R36 is going to actually look is the big question mark. But if we follow the trends that Nissan has been following, it’s not too hard to figure out what it could look like. Nissan unveiled the Vision Gran Turismo Concept earlier this year, you know, before the world effectively shut down.

It’s little more than a wildly-styled concept car at this point, but very obviously has cues that are certain to trickle down into the next GT-R. Nissan’s current V-Motion grill is the biggest giveaway, and the long sharp headlights going up the hood of the car are very obviously an evolutionary move to the R36. The profile is almost reminiscent of the Lexus LC 500, which isn’t a bad thing at all, and the low-slung supercar proportions are spot on for what Nissan should be going for.

The Vision Gran Turismo is also kind of resemblant of the new C8 Corvette, which means one of two things. One, there’s a chance this thing is going to be mid-engined. Number two is more likely, that the regular turbocharged gas engine lives under the hood, and the space behind the cockpit is going to house the electric motors. It’s a fat chance that the next Skyline will have just two seats, but in this world, anything’s possible.

What We Know (Sort Of)

So, what do we actually know? Well, Nissan has been pretty tight-lipped about everything, but using the game of elimination, it’s easy to figure out a few key points. The R36 Skyline will most probably be on the roads by 2022 or 2023, and this timeline will give Nissan the time they need to let the old one age out gracefully. The next Skyline is most likely going to have a hybrid powerplant that pairs multiple electric motors with a twin-turbocharged six-cylinder of some sort.

600 horsepower is likely a bare minimum, with tuned-up models probably offering at least 700, if not more. The price point will probably sit somewhere in the $100,000 range to start, which, when you compare the performance and tech it’s going to be packed with, is likely to be a bargain compared to the Ferraris and Lambos it’ll be beating at the Nurburgring.

We’re happy to see the R35 finally retire, and so excited to see what Nissan’s got planned with the R36. What about you? Are you excited about the R36? And what’re your favorite GT-R’s of all time? Go drop us a comment on our YouTube channel and let us know!
