Edmunds: Nissan GT-R SpecV Full Test

March 27, 2009

Nissan GT-R SpecV - Edmunds

Edmunds’ Peter Lyon has been to Nissan’s Tochigi Plant to get his hands on the Nissan GT-R SpecV. There he was able to not only drive the car but push it quite hard and bring back some performance numbers via the VBOX data recorder.

Overall interesting points to note are the improved steering feel, the improved handling at the limit by reduction of the understeer tendancy of the base GT-R as well as improved acceleration. On the skidpad test they managed 1.12g, a significant improvement over their numbers on the standard car of 0.93g.

Lastly he leaves us with an interesting quote from Mizuno:

Mizuno tells us, “The SpecV, in contrast to what you might be thinking, is not the high-performance version of the GT-R.” That’s right. Mr. GT-R has more magic up his sleeve.

Overall a good read and worth your time…
