Exclamation Nissan GT-R SpecV Revealed

Nissan has officially revealed the highly anticipated limited-production GT-R SpecV that will go on sale next month at several Nissan retailers in Japan for 15,750,000 yen (equivalent to $171,797.33 USD and 126,512.34).

Built as a street legal racer, the SpecV takes the already supercar performance of the standard GT-R to the next level thanks to several enhancements by Nissan engineers. The biggest change is the addition of a new high gear boost control device that allows for a momentarily increase in boost, resulting in greater torque during intermediate-to-high speed driving. This creates a car that is both faster and more fuel-efficient because during this process the engine is allowed to operate at a lower speed. Other performance goodies include a titanium-coated exhaust system and carbon-ceramic brakes for unparalleled stopping ability.

The GT-R SpecV's will only be offered in an exclusive Ultimate Black Opal body color while several of the car's key body panels are constructed from carbon fiber including the grille, rear spoiler, and brake ducts. Lightweight racing-style forged aluminum wheels help to reduce unsprung weight, while a new suspension and high-grip tires help to further improve the GT-R's already legendary handling.

High performance modifications also carry over to the SpecV's interior where the standard four-seating arrangement of the GT-R is replaced by two carbon fiber Recaro bucket seats. Elsewhere in the interior carbon fiber inserts are applied to the rear center storage box and the instrument panel, making drivers and passengers alike remember that they are in one truly special sports car.

Twice the cost of a regular one and it looks pretty much the same.

Pretty big price gap there. Cosmetically I do not care for those wheels and I prefer the "base" cars exhaust tips.

That barely looks like a car worth $71K much less $171K. It probably performs like a car in that segment though....

$100,000 extra for the next trim level is really really deep. but who know, some people out there will still buy it.

There is a definite performance advantage of those alloys, but man a they ugly looking and spoil the whole look of the car. Also, at that price the sales of the normal GTR will be boosted greatly, in fact looking even more like the performance bargain it already is.

I'm over this car already. They made it uglier and at this price point I would just step up to a GT2 or LP560-4.

Looks good. I am the odd ones who really likes the look of the GT-R. :P

I am not sure though that 15,750,000 yen is equivalent to $171,797.33 USD in terms of actual price if sold here. You can't just do price conversions on cars. e.g.: The Corvette ZR1 costs almost 110000 in the UK... that's almost $170k USD.

-it's uglier.

-at 171k, it lost the bargain factor.

-that interior for that money is just as bad as what the ZR1 offers for 100k.
