Nissan GT-R R35 Model Years on GTR-Registry.com

The purpose of this article is to explain how MY (Model Year) is used on this site. Model Year is based on USA model year encoding digit in the VIN. From this information all MY across all regions are used based on a) VIN sequences b) date ranges c) changes to the R35.

What this means is that when a change is made (ie R35 changed from CBA to DBA), a new colour is introduced (ie NAS Regal Red), or a new type is introduced (ie R35 Nismo), all of the MY listings line up across all different regions.

Yes I know that the MY for your car may be listed differently to what yours is in your local region, especially true in Europe/UK/Australia and some other countries. However it does not make sense that Midnight Opal SE is introduced and built at the same time, that they would have different MY listing. As such, all Midnight Opal SE are MY14 and not MY13 Midnight Opal SE or MY14 Midnight Opal SE depending which region they are in.

The only alternative would be to change all of the MY listing to Series 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9. However noone calls a MY17 R35 a Series 9 car. This would be more confusing. Using a standardised MY across all regions is the best possible way without using a Series number.

In the following table you can compare MY across different regions, and when certain models and colours were introduced. For a more in depth look at when colours were introduced and discontinued, please click here.
