With aerodynamic gains in mind, the design of the GT-R NISMO evolved for the last model year – with the changes completely functional. Cooling was increased for key areas, such as the engine bay and brakes, all without negatively affecting the drag coefficient value of 0.26.

Further setting the most potent and exclusive of all GT-Rs apart from non-NISMO models is the amount of carbon fiber found throughout the car. Most components are lighter compared to the GT-R Premium model. This includes the front and rear bumpers, front fenders (-10 pounds), hood (-4.4 pounds), roof (-8.8 pounds), side sill covers, trunk and rear spoiler3. Each component was been improved to cut weight, increase downforce and enhance aerodynamics.

The most significant piece of carbon fiber application is the roof. New last model year, the carbon fiber roof removes a substantial amount of weight, lowering the car's center of gravity for a crisper, more satisfying handling and feel. The roof panel itself is made by using a world-first technique of combining a Prepreg Compression Molding process with a carbon plate and lightweight hard foam sandwich structure. This gives the carbon structure a tighter and lighter weave, improving sound insulation and a striking appearance. Other changes in the carbon fiber construction are the NACA ducts on the hood, which are now incorporated into the composite structure.

The GT3 GT-R racecar heavily inspired the design of the GT-R NISMO front fenders. Their sport louvers increase front downforce by 15 pound-force without creating additional drag. The wind tunnel-tested vented fenders also help smooth airflow along the rest of the body and avoid creating turbulence at the rear wing, promoting even greater high-speed stability. As a multi-functional feature, they also help funnel hot pressurized air out and away from the engine bay. Color choices for the 2021 Nissan GT-R NISMO include Solid Red, Jet Black Pearl, Super Silver QuadCoat (premium color) and Pearl White TriCoat (premium color). All color schemes feature black side mirrors that differentiate the car from the GT-R Premium.
