Nissan has unveiled a limited edition GT-R for the Japanese market. The model line-up includes two grades, the GT-R Premium Edition T-spec and GT-R Track Edition Engineered by NISMO T-spec. The name T-spec represents the GT-R’s philosophy of leading and shaping the times and is inspired by the words trend and traction.
T-Spec limited editions
The two T-spec limited editions are specially equipped with exclusive carbon ceramic brakes, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, an exclusive engine cover, and an exclusive badge for front and rear. Two new body colors, Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade, have been added to the T-spec options. Midnight Purple is an advanced version of the color used on previous generations of GT-Rs and is inspired by color-shifting of the aurora borealis. Millennium Jade exudes sophistication and conveys a quiet, yet powerful presence.
The Nissan GT-R Premium Edition T-spec also has an exclusive interior design, Rays forged alloy wheels (bronze), and suspension that takes advantage of weight reductions below the springs. An expanded wheel-rim width has increased tire rigidity, enabling smooth and sensitive handling.
Developed with a focus on enhanced driving performance, the GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO T-spec is specially equipped with an exclusive carbon-fiber roof and trunk lid. GT-R Track Edition is a grade based on the standard model enhanced with NISMO technology.
The limited edition models are powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 engine making 408 kW and 632 Nm. Power is fed to the rear-wheels via a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) and it has a top speed of 315 km/h.
A total of 100 units of the limited-edition models are planned for sale, with successful purchasers selected by lot. All are scheduled to go on sale in the second half of October.
