The GT-R Color Nissan Should’ve Offered?

June 2nd, 2009


Across the world the amount of discussion generated about the lack of a blue option for the Nissan GT-R is alarming. My guess is that it stems from a love affair many had with the Bayside Blue found on Nissan’s legendary R34 Skyline GT-R.

Bayside Blue was the launch color for the R34 GT-R and, at launch in 1999, the first of only a handful of GT-R specific colors. Bayside Blue went on to prove one of the most successful colors available for the GT-R and subsequently Nissan made it available on special edition R34 Skylines that weren’t GT-Rs so everyone could share in the love.

When the R35 was launched without a single shade of blue in sight, many wondered if it would become a special edition as time went by. Personally I seriously doubt that will ever happen.

So for now, one US owner has decided to take it upon himself. While this is not exactly Bayside Blue it is very close and the color is known as “Royal T Blue”.

You can check out the painting process photos and more over at his blog linked below.

So what other colors should Nissan offer for the R35 GT-R? Add your choices in the comments below…

Update: The blue Nissan GT-R visited STILLEN’s office yesterday and they snapped a whole bunch more photos for their blog. Go check their photo gallery for the rest of the pics.

    When I have more and more pics about GT-R, I found my favourit color is changing…At first I’d like a silver one, and then a red one, but for now I really like a White Pearl color on GT-R…How strange…

    Maybe it’s the pictures but can’t say I prefer that shade of blue on the car or the A-pillars being painted, would’ve gone a touch darker. Unique at least!

    Jesse the Blue GT-R was originally Black but they custom painted it Blue. There is no Blue GT-R from the factory.

    this color really represent the gtr image. even the 2012 production still doesnt came up with the similar trade mark as the other predecessor.

    This color remind me on Nissan Silvia S15. The color look great with GT-R.
