Nissan offering ‘10-Model Version-up Kit’ for MY 2007-2009 GT-R owners

Nissan Japan has started offering a "10-Model Version-up Kit" to MY2007-2009 JDM Godzilla owners in order to update their GT-Rs and bring their cars up to par with the latest edition.

Japanese Nissan GT-R owners are known to want to upgrade their early production sports car to a more recent specification. According to the GTR blog, most of the upgrades are limited to aesthetic features.

Only minimal performance tweaks were made on the car. The kit has re-painted Brembo brake calipers that are more resistant to color fading; a revised Carwings navigation system with USB connectivity and compatibility with the Nismo Data Log MFD kit (used to compile circuit times and telemetry).

Furthermore, the vehicle gets a limited run SpecV dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler as well as new brake pad spring clips.

Gran Turismo 5 creator Kazunori Yamauchi had been open about the remodeling done on his GT-R. He upgraded his MY2007 R35 to 2009 spec and he even put in some SpecV parts for more impact. It should be noted that the GT-R model years in Japan are a year ahead of what they are in the US.

Hence, the Japanese market MY2010 is more like a MY2011. The '10- Model Version-up Kit, which includes a combo brake repainting and MFD upgrade, is priced at about $8695. The MFD alone would cost $7357. [via gtrblog]
