The most obvious difference from the new Fairlady Z, which can be confirmed from the photos of the development vehicle, is the design of the rear bumper. It is a design that makes you feel the improvement of aerodynamic performance by adding a shape like a straightening plate to the side.

The rear spoiler has also been changed from a ducktail shape that matches the width of the rear gate to a round shape that covers the left and right car body edges.

Also, the design of the side skirts seems to be slightly different. Although the camouflage makes it difficult to see the undulations, the bottom is designed with a flat shape.

The design of the wheel that can be seen on the front side is also 9 spokes. In addition, it seems that the lower side of the front bumper is also shaped like a rectifier like the rear bumper.

Regarding the wheels to be installed on the development vehicle, on the aforementioned forum site, there is a post pointing out that the design of the GT-R is similar to the special RAYS aluminum forged wheels used in the NISMO and T-Spec. The design of the spokes looks slightly different from the GT-R, but they are identical in that they have 9 spokes.

In connection with this, it is said that the brake caliper that can be partially confirmed is also the Brembo 6-pot caliper installed on the GT-R.
