Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

Enough with the leaked details, Nissan GT-R SpecV model was officially unveiled today! What you must know is that the new SpecV model is a car built for enthusiast drivers who want the performances of a race-car in a street-legal vehicle.

Based on the well-known Nissan GT-R a.k.a. Godzilla, the new vehicle comes with unique body, interior and performance equipment and modifications.

The exterior of the vehicle, available only in Ultimate Black Opal (RP) body color, includes a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber grille and carbon fiber brake ducts while at the interior we find Recaro carbon fiber bucket seats as well as new carbon fiber accessories on the rear center storage box, instrument panel and other trim areas.

Under the hood is the same engine found on the "standard" GT-R featuring a new high gear boost control device which delivers greater torque in the intermediate-to-high speed ranges providing in this way a more powerful feeling of acceleration.

Stopping the car will not be a problem because the new Nissan GT-R SpecV model comes with carbon-ceramic which delivers greater performances together with the high performance tires found on the 20 inch racing-style forged aluminum wheels, developed especially for this model by Nissan Motorsports International (NISMO).

Also a new titanium-coated exhaust system was added for a better sound of the engine. The new Nissan has been priced at 15,750,000 yen which represents almost $172,000 or EUR126,600.

The vehicle will go o sale at the seven specially selected Nissan dealers throughout Japan on February 2.

Press Release

Nissan GT-R SpecV

Nissan announced a new limited-production Nissan GT-R SpecV model, which goes on sale at seven specially selected Nissan dealers throughout Japan on February 2, 2009. The Nissan GT-R SpecV is targeted specifically at enthusiast drivers who desire race car-level performance in a street-legal vehicle.

Developed around the multi-dimensional Nissan GT-R sports car, which was introduced just more than one year ago to universal global acclaim, the new SpecV model builds on the original's "ultimate supercar that anyone can enjoy driving anywhere, at anytime" philosophy - taking it to an entirely new level of "oneness between man and machine." The SpecV model includes unique body, interior and performance equipment and modifications, raising the GT-R's unmatched performance to even higher levels.

The Nissan GT-R SpecV's new exterior features include a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber grille, and carbon fiber brake ducts. The SpecV is available exclusively in Ultimate Black Opal (RP) body color. Inside, the SpecV's unique two-seat interior (non-SpecV GT-R models also include a two-place rear seat) offers special Recaro carbon fiber bucket seats, while carbon fiber insets embellish the rear center storage box, instrument panel and other trim areas.

Performance is enhanced with a new high gear boost control device, which momentarily increases boost of the engine's twin turbochargers for greater torque in the intermediate-to-high speed ranges to provide a more powerful feeling of acceleration, while also allowing the engine to operate at a lower speed for improved fuel economy. Other modifications include a titanium-coated exhaust system and carbon-ceramic brakes that provide powerful stopping performance.

The Nissan GT-R SpecV is also equipped with lightweight, racing-style forged aluminum wheels that were developed for this model and have been sold by Nissan Motorsports International (NISMO) since September 2008. The lighter unsprung weight provided by the new wheels, together with the enhanced braking capability, an exclusive suspension and high-grip tires, combine to deliver the SpecV's exceptional performance.
