Nissan is hoping that the GT-R craze will go one for another two years before it decides to release the Spec-V in the U.S. by mid-2010. We don’t doubt for a second that it wouldn’t, since the car hasn’t even gone on sale yet.
The people of the ‘land of the rising sun’ are excited and pumped since the GT-R Spec-V arrives in their market by the end of this year. Why so sudden for the Japanese and so late for the U.S.? Well, the Nissan GT-R has been on sale in Japan since December 2007, so they’ve waited their two years.
CARandDRIVER says that the Nissan GT-R Spec-V will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show later this September. Speaking with Larry Dominique, Nissan North America vice president in charge of product planning, CARandDRIVER learned that he wants to see how the regular GT-R does and hold out for the Spec-V when the buzz dies down.
The Nissan GT-R Spec-V is expected to produce 550 horsepower from its 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 and will actually weigh 330 pounds less than its 473 horsepower brother.
