Nissan GT-R Spec V launched in Japan

Nissan GT-R Spec V launched in Japan


The much-awaited 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V has been unveiled in Japan. Contrary to popular rumours, there are no power upgrades, as Nissan instead focused on reducing weight to create a track-biased car. This leads us to believe that the standard engine-gearbox combination is already running at optimum, and any performance modifications done by tuning companies are simply reducing the life of the car.

The 478 hp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 with dual-clutch transmission continues, but the GT-R Spec V has new exterior features that include a carbon-fibre rear spoiler, a carbon-fibre grille, and carbon-fibre brake ducts. Along with other colours, the Spec V is also available exclusively in “Ultimate Black Opal” colour.

The cabin features special Recaro carbon-fibre bucket seats, while the rear bench has been removed. Excessive carbon-fibre trim also covers the rear centre-storage box, instrument panel and other areas.

The only performance add-on is a new high-gear boost control device, which momentarily increases boost of the engine’s twin turbochargers for greater torque at medium-to-high speed, while also allowing the engine to operate at lower revs for improved fuel economy. Other modifications include a titanium-coated exhaust system, retuned shocks, carbon-ceramic brakes, and lightweight 20-inch forged-aluminium wheels.

The limited-edition Nissan GT-R Spec V costs 15,750,000 yen (Dhs 630,000), and will only be sold at seven specific dealer outlets in Japan, each staffed by mechanics with special “GT-R SpecV training” and track-driving knowledge. But expect at least a few to creep into Dubai used car showrooms at twice the price, even if no one here has the skill to fix or even drive one.

What do you think?

  1. wow for almost twice the price it should be twice as fast…..i guess NOT

  2. twice the price of a normal GT-R 300k to 330k

  3. the cost must be the result of it being in low volume prodction and the weight reduction with carbon fibre. Love this car! The black looks mind blowing!!!

  4. black out those rear lights and this cars gonna look so evil mwahahahhahaaaa

  5. wow superb car… i love this car

  6. atlast a new atractive models are realesing

  7. I know the Gt-R been around for some time now but still “Simply mind blowing” thats all im gonna say..

  8. Urgh!!! Did we really need a Spec-V model… πŸ™„

  9. yes, we need it for PlayStation’s racing games πŸ˜†

  10. true!!!! πŸ™„

  11. The world can never get enough of the GTR..

  12. totally right

    this car has redefined the automotive engineering technology…and proved that you can get a superb results with a bit of extra thinking…just use your mind and you will be rewarded with great results…

    i was disappointed with the power…since they didnt increase it….but waiting for the EVO or Nismo Tune(performance upgrade)…
    good luck nissan…
    this is the only car that proved ’till now’ (between all the japanese monsters: supra, eclipse, RX7….that its a true legend…waiting for the NSX and LF-A…although right now i think its really hard to catch up with the GTR V spec…this car is like a children that keeps growing up…am sure this is not the end. 😐

  13. There is no end to this monstera gtr before when this model didnt arrived people were still using the old models why because its perform.There is no Competiter of the Gtr and nor any one can competite with it either bugatis or Lambos. But the problem with the new one is that when u driving this one too fast or using it for race purpose it break the gear thats the thing which i fear from it.

  14. The only problem arrising from the Gearbox is due to the number of Launches made using the LC feature, other than that there have been no known problems from this gearbox. You can trash it just like any other.

  15. I love the GT-R but it will always be a β€œNISSAN” (unfortunately!) πŸ™

  16. So whats wrong with being a Nissan!!??

  17. nissan is for sure the best auto car maker right now, with fast cars and cool cars, in value for money packages.

  18. Plain sex on toast.

    The only hang up i have of this car is of its interiors (needs to be a more special) but what the heck all is forgotten when u stomp on ya right foot. Luv it.
