Breaking: Nissan GT-R SpecV goes on sale in Europe

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Nissan isn't giving potential buyers a lot of time to decide on whether they'd want to purchase the SpecV model, Nissan's recently revised 2011 GT-R supercar.

Only 40 examples of the car will be made for Europe, reflecting the 40th anniversary of the launch of the first Nissan to wear the GT-R badge.

In the UK, the SpecV has a price tag of GBP124,900 (based on 17.5% VAT and £405 RFL) which is converted to about GBP138,000.

Nissan will only be accepting orders for the GT-R SpecV at Nissan High Performance Centres (NHPCs) across Europe until January 22, 2010, so there's really no time to lose.

The SpecV model has a number of features worth mentioning. First, the car has various lightweight carbon-fiber parts, no rear seats, revised springs and fixed-rate dampers, carbon ceramic brake system from Brembo, a titanium exhaust system, bespoke Recaro carbon fiber bucket front seats and 20-inch Ray alloys with extra grippy tires.

The maximum horsepower output is unchanged but the engine's performance is enhanced with a new high gear boost control device, which briefly increases boost of the twin turbochargers for greater torque in the intermediate-to-high speed ranges.

The upgrades to the SpecV resulted to a weight saving of 60kg or 132 lbs over the standard GT-R.
