Yes, we live in a world where a GT-R has crossed the $200,000 mark.

For some time now, the Nissan GT-R hasn't been the performance bargain it was when it debuted in 2009, and for 2020, it's getting even more expensive. Especially the top-of-the-line Nismo, which pushes the GT-R above the $200,000 mark for the first time. Nissan announced pricing for the 2020 GT-R today, confirming that the Nismo will cost $212,435 with the $1695 factored in.

Effectively, the base price for the 2020 GT-R is bumped up $11,855 over the 2019 model because Nissan decided to do away with the entry-level Pure model. The 2020 GT-R Premium will cost $3000 more than its 2019 counterpart, and for that extra cash, you get slightly different engine tuning, new Rays 20-inch forged wheels, and a few small visual tweaks.

For an additional $8500, you can have a 50th Anniversary GT-R, which gets you a lovely shade of Bayside Blue paint—the same color offered on the iconic R34-generation Skyline GT-R—white stripes, and a number of other visual touches. The 2020 GT-R Track Edition will set you back $147,235. That's $17,000 more than the 2019 model, but the Track Edition now gets the same 600-hp twin-turbo V-6 from the GT-R Nismo.

With its $212,435 MSRP, the 2020 GT-R Nismo is a whopping $35,200 more expensive than the 2019 model. Its power and torque figures of 600 hp and 481 lb-ft haven't changed for 2020, but the GT-R Nismo now gets its turbochargers from the GT-R GT3 race car. Nissan says these new turbos help increase throttle response. The 2020 Nismo also gets new carbon-fiber fenders, hood, side sills, trunk, wing, and most significantly, roof. Thanks to this and other weight saving measures, the 2020 Nismo is 66 pounds lighter than its predecessor.

All that considered though, it's still a lot of money for a GT-R. The Nismo is more than a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and more than a McLaren 570S.

If you don't think that's too expensive, however, you can put in an order for a 2020 GT-R Nismo on July 12th. The GT-R Premium and 50th Anniversary go on sale on July 25th, while if you want a Track Edition, you'll have to wait until August 25th.
