Yes, not one, but two new Nissan GT-Rs. Christmas certainly came early for fans of this badge, eh?
The carmaker has announced that it is expanding its GT-R lineup over in Japan and the US with the addition of a pair of limited-edition releases: The T-Spec Premium and T-Spec Track Edition, both engineered by Nismo. Both are scheduled to go on sale in the second half of October, and only 100 of them will be made.
So, Japan- and US-only, and limited to 100 units? Tough luck then. If, however, you’re one of the lucky few who’ll be able to land a reservation, you’re in for quite a treat.
The most obvious enhancement you’re looking at here is the colors. Exclusive to the T-spec offerings are new Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade exterior finishes. If they look familiar to you, it’s because they’re variations of special colorways released for the Midnight Purple R34 V-Spec and Midnight Opal R35 GT-R.
Then you have a bunch of other add-ons meant to build on the performance car’s looks and capability. Both editions come with carbon ceramic brakes, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, and an exclusive engine cover along with special badging.
The T-spec Premium gets a set of bronze Rays forged alloy wheels and suspension upgrades to improve ride quality and handling. The T-spec Track Edition, meanwhile, comes equipped with a carbon-fiber roof and trunk lid, and a host of Nismo upgrades.
Units still come packing a 3.8-liter V6 engine with 565hp and 633Nm, but again, the mill does come with a new engine cover. The T-spec Premium goes for 15,904,900 Japanese yen (P7.2 million), while the T-spec Track Edition carries a 17,881,600 Japanese yen (P8.1 million) price tag. Take your pick.
