Paris 2010: Nissan GT-R Spec-M / Egoist First Video

September 30th, 2010

As predicted by many, the brand new 2012 GT-R has most certainly turned up at the 2010 Paris Motorshow which starts October 2nd. Debuting in Paris is also evidently the luxury Nissan GT-R Egoist (aka SpecM). One lucky member of GTBOARD.com was able to get in early and scope it out in advance.

The GT-R in the video is fully decked out in R-Red leather interior, Rays SpecV wheels and SpecV carbon rear spoiler. Also visible in the engine bay is that new red engine cover. Absent though is any badge of any kind denoting the official model though it’s expected to keep it’s SpecM name in Europe.

We’ve run a post with a full list of SpecM / Egoist interior color options, head here to check it out…

More Power In Store for 2012, Spec-M Named for Japan Market: The Nissan GT-R EGOIST

August 30th, 2010

Well we did mention that the SpecM name was tentative and today we’ve heard another rumor from sources close to Nissan that the R35 GT-R “Gentleman’s Edition” will launch in the Japanese market as the Nissan GT-R Egoist. While the name seems insane to us it’s not too far outside the bounds of Japanese naming schemes so that we’d completely rule it out.

The SpecM nameplate is likely to be kept in markets outside Japan however so don’t completely cross it off your wish list just yet…

On the topic of rumors from sources close to Nissan Japan, here’s another we’ve just heard. Those folks hopeful that 520ps is the new peak power figure for the 2012 GT-R might be surprised to learn they can expect to be dissapointed. After seeing this figure making its way around blogs and forums one might start quoting it as fact by now but to this date no figure has appeared either officially or leaked. In the true spirit of it not being over ’til the fat lady sings, we’re now told by our reliable sources that 530ps – 540ps is more accurate.

I’ll leave that last one out there…

2012 Nissan GT-R Spied With Updated Wheel Design

June 29th, 2010

Edmunds has scooped a few new photos of the 2012 GT-R at Nurburgring again today. This time shes wearing even less camouflage than before so we can start to properly appreciate the new curves up front.

What’s most surprising and what they failed to comment on was the completely new wheel design. It’s long been predicted that Nissan will also need to refresh the wheel design to complete a facelift and it looks like they have. Not a huge departure from the original design which is a good thing because the original wheels were great. These are expected to be slightly lighter than the 2009 versions.

MotorTrend: 2012 Nissan GT-R Unmasked Spied at Nurburgring

June 23rd, 2010

There’s been a lot of the masked / camouflaged GT-R photos on various sites around the net this week. Unfortunately most of them gave us even less of an idea than we already had about what the facelifted 2012 GT-R was going to look like.

MotorTrend has changed that with the publication of some much more juicy photos clearly showing the front double canards and the rear diffuser updates.

It’s certainly a big departure from what I was expecting up front, I was assuming a more subdued front canard look. Nevertheless the rear end look appeals to me a lot.

Lots more photos at the MotorTrend website linked below…
