The 2008 Nissan GT-R marked the return of the all-wheel-drive, purpose built, Skyline model which was dropped in 2002 when the Nissan R34 Skyline ceased production.

The styling of the 2008 GT-R was based on that of the Nissan GT-R Proto concept from 2005, and the appearance of the two cars is almost identical.

Nissan created the GT-R to be "an ultimate supercar enjoyable to anyone, anywhere, at anytime". Power for the GT-R comes from a 473 horsepower, twin-turbo V6 engine "VR38" which produces 588Nm of torque from 3200 to 5200rpm. The engine benefits from plasma-sprayed bores and a special twin-turbo exhaust manifold system. The transmission is handled by a dual-clutch GR6-type unit with paddle shift control. The transmission and transfer case are positioned at the rear of the GT-R to help give the car a balanced weight distribution.

The suspension of the Nissan GT-R uses a special Bilstein DampTronic system, which uses all relevant vehicle information to provide appropriate damping forces for all situations and helps maintain a high level of control for straight-line driving, cornering, and braking.

The Nissan GT-R's braking is handled by Brembo full-floating drilled rotors, performance brake pads and Brembo mono block six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers, which in combination minimize fade and provide strong, stable braking.

Standard safety equipment includes a pop-up engine hood, system for enhanced pedestrian safety, driver and front passenger SRS Air Bag System, front seat belts with tension reducer, front seat belts with load limiter, and three-point rear seat belts. Driver and front passenger SRS Side Air Bag System and SRS Curtain Air Bag System are also offered.

The Nissan GT-R's body is created with a combination of steel, carbon fiber and aluminum, providing a unique combination of lightweight and rigidity. The 2008 Nissan GT-R features a low coefficient of drag of 0.27 which enhances fuel efficiency, which is balanced with high levels of front and rear downforce for improved roadholding.

Inside the Nissan GT-R, the 2+2 layout features performance bucket seats for the driver and front seat passenger, and soft pads are positioned on the lower portion of the instrument panel and doors to give an extra level of comfort and safety.
A large center-mounted tachometer, with gear display on its upper right, as well as the easy-to-read graphics of the display, gives the driver instant detailed information. A "setup switch" located in the center of the instrument panel allows the driver to adjust transmission shifts, shock absorbers and the Vehicle Dynamic Control in three settings - Normal, Comfort or R, the high-performance setting designed for the GT-R "supercar" application.
