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. Its exterior features include a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber grille, and carbon fiber brake ducts available exclusively in Ultimate Black Opal body-color. 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.
