Nissan's next-generation GT-R will be an all-electric high-performance supercar which offers ultimate driving pleasure and opens a dramatic new chapter in the sporty story of the three-letter Japanese icon.  

At the heart of the Nissan Hyper Force concept car revealed at Japan Mobility Show 2023 (the new-age Tokyo Motor Show) is a megawatt electric powertrain with a state-of-the-art solid-state battery and an advanced version of Nissan's e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive system.

The 1,000 kilowatts of electrifying energy propels a lightweight carbon body co-developed with the Nismo racing team. The car's race-ready aerodynamics is realised by a dual-level rear diffuser, a newly-devised plasma actuator, and active aero aids in the form of the front canards, front fender flip and both ends of the rear wing. Forged carbon wheels complete the exterior package, while the quadruple round tail-lamps pay homage to the classic GT-R aesthetic. 

The two-seater cockpit, which might become a 2+2 in the production model to make it more practical, features carbon-fibre seats with four-point seatbelts, an array of digital screens to feed driving/racing information to the driver, and touch-operated controls for the infotainment, air-con, audio, suspension and stabilisers. 

Two driving modes are available — "GT" for grand touring, presumably optimised for comfort; and "R" for racing, which is self-explanatory. 

In the go-faster "R" mode, the dashboard's graphics (which were designed by Gran Turismo game company Polyphony Digital) become red, fast and furious. In the go-slightly-slower "GT" mode, the cabin is illuminated in blue and the screens around the steering wheel merge to provide a simpler yet still immersive driving experience conducive to cruising, perhaps on the way home from the racetrack.
