The Nissan GT-R is sold in India through the CBU route, and currently, the 2020 variant is sold here. Since the 2023 GT-R doesn’t see many changes, there’s a good chance Nissan will jump in here as well.

However, Nissan is also rumored to be working on a platform that will underpin the new GT-R, and it will most likely be an electric car.
