    Nissan Announces New GT-R SpecV Model

    TOKYO (Jan. 8, 2009) -- Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today 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 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 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 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.

    The SpecV will be sold at the following seven dealer outlets, each of which is staffed by mechanics with special GT-R SpecV training and who are knowledgeable of racing circuit driving.

    Dealer outlets selling the SpecV
    Ibaraki Nissan Sales Co., Ltd. Mito Sennami Outlet
    Nissan Prince Tokyo Sales Co., Ltd. Kamedo Outlet
    Nissan Prince Nagoya Sales Co., Ltd. Fukiage Outlet
    Nissan Prince Osaka Sales Co., Ltd. Horie Kawaguchi Outlet
    Nissan Prince Hyogo Sales Co., Ltd. Nada Outlet
    Nissan Prince Kagawa Sales Co., Ltd. Takamatsu Outlet
    Yamaguchi Nissan Sales Co., Ltd. Ogori Interchange Outlet

    Suggested nationwide retail price (including consumption tax) 15,750,000 yen.

    I hate that ugly rear pillar. The previous skyline was a good looking car. This shit looks cheap and yes, it looks like a 3G eclipse/350z/some kind of pontiac bastard child.

    You could buy a c6 Z06 and a GTR as a winter beater for the price of that pile.

    GTR Spec V is to Porsche GT2 as the standard GTR is to Porsche 911 Turbo.

    Porsche charges $70,000 to go from the 911 turbo to the GT2($200,000).

    so they add CF, remost the back seat and add a feature (overboost) that will probably void your warrenty. Where do I sign....for a ZR1
