Limited Edition Nissan GT-R SpecV unveiled in Japan

The much-awaited Nissan GT-R SpecV has finally arrived. The limited edition GT-R is a subtle evolution of the super coupe that’s set the world on fire after its introduction last year, and Nissan claims that it offers race car-levels of performance in a street-legal vehicle. The latest model boasts of a unique body, interior and performance equipment, and modifications, raising the GT-R’s unmatched performance to even higher levels. Available exclusively in Ultimate Black Opal body color, its exterior features include a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber grille, and carbon fiber brake ducts. The interior features Recaro carbon fiber bucket seats, while carbon fiber insets embellish the rear center storage box, instrument panel and other trim areas.

The only substantive engine modification is a new high gear boost controller that increases the amount of compressed oxygen entering the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 to deliver more torque in mid- to high-range revs. A titanium-coated exhaust and a reworked suspension are fitted underneath, and carbon ceramic brakes hide behind 20-inch NISMO wheels that conspire to reduce un-sprung mass and improve braking performance. The limited edition beauty goes on sale at seven specially selected Nissan dealers throughout Japan on February 2, 2009. With pricing set at ¥ 15,750,000 ($171,314), this beauty promises to rule the roads of Japan.
