The Japanese GT-R supercar has been in service for 14 years, so Nissan is doing its best to maintain interest in the outdated model. A new special edition of this model has appeared in Japan called the Premium Edition T-spec, which should attract buyers with new colors.
The special edition GT-R will be offered in purple and light green body shades, borrowed from the palette of the previous Skyline GT-R R34 series, which are considered cult among fans of this model. A similar color scheme will be tried on in the interior of the car.
However, there were other small changes. So, for example, the special version GT-R comes with carbon-ceramic brakes, which were previously the exclusive prerogative of the Track Edition and the most powerful GT-R Nismo. These vehicles also received carbon fiber fenders at the stern, an original engine cover and corresponding nameplates on the body.
Along with the Premium Edition T-spec, a more advanced GT-R Track Edition Engineered by Nismo T-spec was introduced. It uses all the same features as the Track Edition: tighter chassis settings, a carbon fiber roof panel and a boot lid.
There were no changes in technique. Both variants of the GT-R are equipped with the standard 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6, producing 570 horsepower. It is coupled with a 6-speed dual-clutch robotic transmission.
In total, Nissan plans to produce 100 of these cars. All of them will go on sale in October. For the T-spec version in Japan, they will ask from $ 145 thousand, and for the Track Edition Engineered by Nismo T-spec – from $ 163 thousand.
