Nissan unveils the new GT-R including two limited specs – the GT-R Premium Edition T-spec and the GT-R Track Edition which is engineered by NISMO T-spec. The new T-spec edition will feature two new colors and a range of updated features. This is not a brand-new model, but rather another update for the R35 Nissan.
The GT-R T-spec gets the wider front fenders from the Track Edition special, along with gold-painted Rays forged aluminum wheels and a carbon fiber spoiler. Add to that body-colored mirrors, black hood ducts and special badging. Bringing the T-spec to a halt are the carbon ceramic brakes usually fitted to the Nismo.
But the huge deal here are the colors, Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple. Jade was originally offered on the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nur, one of the rarest of Skylines ever created. Only 718 of those were produced in total, with just 156 wearing the color.
The new model also includes a special Mori Green interior option, with semi-aniline leather pearl suede accents, special badges and an Alcantara headliner. From the pictures, we’d say it looks a little classier, a little more old school sports car than anything we’ve seen from Nissan before.
The special model will continue with the company’s VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 making 565hp and 633Nm of torque. That’s the standard amount, as the Nismo version, also still on sale, bumps that to 600hp and 652Nm of torque. All GT-Rs come with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. Exclusive to Japan with just 100 units, they sure are on their way to becoming collectors delight.
