Confirmed Specifications: Nissan GT-R Spec-V

November 30, 2008

Nissan’s GT-R was one of the most anticipated new cars of 2007 (not to mention the 5 years leading up to 2007) and what an enormous success it was. In 2008 all the talk has been about Nissan’s next GT-R model, the Nissan GT-R Spec-V.

The Spec-V has been spied and rumored and talked up on blogs and forums but not much in the way of confirmed data has been delivered yet. Today we have been tipped off on the list of confirmed changes in the Nissan GT-R Spec-V versus the standard Nissan GT-R.

The Spec-V Nissan GT-R will be released on the 8th of January 2009

Nissan GT-R Spec-V – The Changes

The Spec-V builds on the already solid base of the standard series II Nissan GT-R with the following subtle changes which set it apart.

Engine/Drivetrain:

  • Engine output increased to 485 ps
  • Transmission mode selection button has been removed
  • Overboost button for increased midrange boost during overtaking
  • Carbon brakes

Interior:

  • Carbon fibre MFD surround
  • Carbon fibre mirror switch surround
  • Black interior only
  • Silver painted panels are now chrome
  • Carbon fibre front seats
  • Carbon fibre rear shelf replaces seats

Exterior:

  • Carbon fibre grille painted matte clear
  • Carbon fibre rear wing painted matte clear
  • Carbon fibre ducts in front lip spoiler
  • New colour available: Ultimate Black Pearl, this is said to be a purplish black
  • Available colours: Ultimate Black Pearl, Brilliant White (new for MY09), Red, Dark Metal Gray, Black

Wheels and Suspension:

  • Rays 20″ Forged Aluminum Wheels
  • Bilstein Damptronic suspension upgraded, superiour in performance to the Nismo ClubSport package suspension

Optional Extras:

  • Dunlop Tires (no cost option)
  • Thatcham alarm system
  • BOSE Sound System and ETC (Electronic Toll Card system)
  • Ultimate Black Pearl Paint – a 577,500 yen option

The Bottom Line

  • Base Price: 15,750,000 yen excluding tax
  • Fully Optioned: 16,978,500 yen excluding tax

For all that, how does it perform? Well by all means it is faster than a standard GT-R on road and at the track. At Sendai Highland Raceway, where the Nismo and Spec-V GT-Rs get tested the Spec-V was 2 seconds faster than the standard series II GT-R.

How about a Nurburgring time? Unfortunately we may never know what Nissan managed at the ‘ring. All signs point to them not publishing the Nurburgring times going forward.
