Nissan and the GT-R – an inseparable combination for fans. But in this country the admirers of “Godzilla” should look more and more clearly into the tube, because the Japanese have noticeably reduced their engagement on the old continent. The new Nissan Z (as the 370 Z successor) is not coming to us and so are the probably last special editions of the GT-R (combined fuel consumption: 13.8 l / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 316 g / km²).
Special colors, loving details
The all-wheel-drive sports car has been on the market since 2007, drove many Porsche drivers to despair with a speed of 2.7 seconds at 100 km / h from 2012, and its visual presentation still has an unmistakable character. Now there are two special editions to be ordered exclusively for the Japanese market.
On the one hand there is the Nissan GT-R Premium Edition T-Spec from around 123,000 euros, which comes with ceramic brakes, a special carbon rear spoiler and special lettering, among other things. In addition, Nissan is donating the paintwork “Midnight Purple” and “Millennium Jade”, which were already used on previous versions.
Track Edition with a focus on lightweight construction
The interior has also been upgraded with a lot of leather, Alcantara and color-coordinated accents. The Premium Edition T-Spec is rounded off by special bronze-colored rims and weight-optimized chassis components. If a customer wants to put even more emphasis on lightweight construction, he can also opt for the Nissan GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO, which costs a good 138,000 euros. Then, among other things, the roof and the trunk lid are made of carbon fiber. In addition, as the name suggests, in-house tuner Nismo has once again leaned on and revised components that are relevant to driving dynamics.
Both versions of the Nissan GT-R rely on the more powerful V6 biturbo by Nismo, which instead of 419 kW / 570 PS produces around 441 kW / 600 PS (combined fuel consumption: 14.2 l / 100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 324 g / km²). According to the Japanese, both special editions will go on sale this October, the vehicles are limited to 100 pieces and will be allocated to interested parties by lottery.
