Nissan GT-R "Face Swap" Looks Like an R35 with R34 Design

Both the Nissan 370Z and the GT-R are getting long in the tooth and while the Japanese automaker has dropped clues on the future of the sportscar, we know nothing about the next iteration of its supercar killer. Of course, the Internet has come up with multiple pixel works related to the matter, some of which even portray Godzilla in mid-engined form. However, the rendering sitting on our screens right now skips the future, looking into the past of the Nissan halo car.

This digital painting is part of the face swap movement, an initiative that knows no boundaries. And, in its effort to bring something new to the current Nissan GT-R, it borrows quite a few styling elements from its predecessor.

In fact, the R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R's styling features now populate both ends of the R35, so perhaps "a fascia swap" would be a more appropriate label. Then again, we mustn’t overlook the old-school wing that made its way into this eye candy.

Now, digital label spdesignest, which is behind this shenanigan, wanted to ensure viewers could enjoy the design mix without the finish of the vehicle getting in the way. Well, this is why the GT-R melange is showcased in multiple hues. And since this badge has been the topic of so many special editions, we even get a rendering picturing the 50th Anniversary Edition, a 50-unit special the automotive producer presented last summer.

Until Nissan allows us to peek into its crystal ball, you can expect more adventures of the sort to show up and we'll be here, bringing these to you.

Meanwhile, more and more drag strips in the U.S. are reopening their gates, as the industry moves into the next step of dealing with the health crisis. And this means the aftermarket world can continue its relentless pursuit for sweeter R35 Nissan GT-R quarter-mile numbers.
