After all the spy shots and leaked details Nissan today has finally dropped the info on the new Nissan GT-R SpecV which goes on sale at seven Nissan dealers in Japan on February 2. Nissan says that the GT-R SpecV is designed for drivers “who desire race car-level performance in a street-legal vehicle.” Nissan wasn’t very technical about the details but the Japanese automaker did say how it used a lot of weight-saving elements with new unique body modifications, interior upgrades and performance enhancing equipment.
The new Nissan GT-R SpecV includes a new carbon fiber rear-spoiler, a carbon fiber grille, and carbon fiber brake ducts. It will be available exclusively in Ultimate Black Opal body color. The inside of the car gets a two-seat interior with Recaro carbon fiber bucket seats and carbon fiber insets in the rear center storage box, instrument panel and other trim areas. The performance upgrades include a new high-gear boost control device which increases the boost of the engine’s twin turbochargers for increased torque to provide a more powerful acceleration. Other performance upgrades include a titanium-coated exhaust system and carbon-ceramic brakes that provide powerful stopping performance.
The special-edition GT-R SpecV rides on 20-inch lightweight, racing-style forged aluminum wheels that were developed by Nissan Motorsports International – aka NISMO.
Nissan did not say how many SpecV models it will produce or whether it will be offered in other markets besides Japan – but if you live in Japan get ready to cash out 15,750,000 yen ($170,178 USD).
