Brent, here's your new car::: GT-R Spec V

Really Nissan? REALLY?



2010 Nissan GT-R Spec V Specs Leak, Will Cost $160,000
By Wes Siler, 10:30 AM on Mon Dec 1 2008, 2,979 views
Ever since the Nissan GT-R had its *** handed to it on the Nurburgring by the Corvette ZR1, anticipation for a lighter, faster Spec V version has been rampant. Now, it appears that official specifications have leaked. How much faster is it? Not much. Read on for details.

The least changed part causing the most controversy appears to be the engine, which, according to the leaked info, retains the 2009 GT-R’s 478 HP power output. It had been rumored that the Spec V would make somewhere in the region of 520 HP. The engine does however receive an overboost function capable of temporarily boosting mid-range power for those trickier overtakes.

The biggest issue the Spec V appears to address is the GT-R’s immense 3,814 Lb curb weight. While a new figure wasn’t included in the leaked specs, the Spec V ditches the rear seats in favor of a carbon fiber shelf, also employing that material for the front seats, interior accents and aerodynamic aids. None of that sounds far-reaching enough to make a hugely meaningful reduction in mass however.

Nor does that minimal weight reduction do much to justify the massive increase in price. The leaked info indicates that the Spec V will retail in Japan for a massive $165,000 before tax, or nearly $95,000 more than the standard $69,850 GT-R.

Partially justifying that price is the fitment of Bilstein Damptronic suspension (allegedly capable of outperforming the GT-R’s option Nismo ClubSport setup), 20” forged aluminum wheels and super high-performance Dunlop tires.

Other changes include the elimination of the multiple transmission modes (presumably the Race setting will be chosen as the only one), carbon ceramic brakes, an exposed carbon grille, exposed carbon rear wing and exposed carbon ducts in the front splitter. A new paint color, Ultimate Black Pearl (dark purple), will be available for about $6,000.

According to the information, the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec V is scheduled for official release on January 8, 2009. Hopefully it’ll bring with it some as-yet-unseen performance enhancement, or at least a slightly saner price tag.

Its coming out for 2010. you dont even need the launch control in that car. the damn thing is ranchy without it. I do think they are out of their damn minds to think that car is worth 160K. i love the car but im not a fan of the over priceing and over hype. but the the times it will run shall tell.

they need to fix real issues not do stupid things... about about fixing the transmission to actually take the abuse they claim it will ..... i guess thats to much to ask.

Re: Brent, here's your new car::: GT-R Spec V

lol its not even fair to compare a ZR1 to a GT-R really, a better comparo would be a C6 ZO6.

jesus the ZR1 rips though the first few gears, and they were only shifting at 5k (probably still breaking in the motor) till they got up to 5th and 6th. Cant wait to see the ZR1's with pulley swaps and tunes. 600+whp bolton affair, though a pulley swap and tune for a $100k+ vehicle will easily be the cost of a KB/Whipple for one of ours!

they didnt build the gtr to compete with a car that didnt exist yet. it was built to compete with the z06 and the porshe, which it does pretty damn well against.

Nissan knew full well that the ZR1 was coming out when they were working on the GT-R.

The Spec-V -super-duper whatever else is in the title of the GT-R top version is built to race with the ZR1, so we'll see how that goes.
