Officially announced today is the 2010 specification Nissan GT-R for the Japanese market. We’d heard the rumours of some of the updates to feature in this iteration of Godzilla but today all is confirmed and more. Keep in mind that these changes may well trickle down to MY2011 specification Nissan GT-Rs in other regions but none of that is confirmed yet.

Suspension is retuned to enhance ride comfort while still providing direct feedback from the road surface. The front shock absorbers are improved as well as an increase in the stiffness of the front springs. Rear radius rod bushings have also been strengthened.

The SpecV‘s rear diffuser is indeed available now on all models standard which improves cooling in the rear floor area. Something many GT-R owners noticed in previous model years.

New style, higher flowing, catalytic converters are adopted to improve low and mid range engine response.

On the inside, the Japanese CARWINGS system is enhanced and the audio system now features a USB port with iPod connectivity capability.

The MY2010 SpecV also receives some updates, the rear shock settings are tweaked which should improve ride and handling. SpecV’s are also now delivered with Dunlop tires standard instead of the Bridgestones. Bridgestones are now optional.
