Nissan Middle East is now offering a new version of the GT-R in the GCC. It is being termed as the 2012 Nissan GT-R VVIP edition, which is basically another name for the Japanese-market ‘Egoist’ trim level. It is a customisable version of the updated 2011-2012 GT-R, with more power and more luxurious cabin upholstery.
The VVIP edition includes the revised 530 hp GT-R engine and adds a high degree of customer personalisation for the interior leather upholstery. The GT-R in these Nissan-supplied photos show a car with white leather upholstery with golden highlights, as well as dealer-installed gold-plated grilles and ‘VVIP’ badges.
Nissan recently conducted a ride-and-drive media event at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit with the 2012 Nissan GT-R, to which we were not invited. However, they are offering one-day media test drives, which we have declined as per our policy to not take cars for less than two days. Be advised though that the 2012 Nissan GT-R, in regular and VVIP editions, is now available for order at selected Nissan dealers in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi showrooms in the UAE.
