Nissan GT-R V-Spec details revealed Photo:

While the 'standard' GT-R is busy kicking arse and taking names, Nissan

has quietly released details of the limited run GT-R V-Spec and I like

what I see. In years gone by the V-Spec has, in most cases, made do with

a few minor suspension and electronics revisions with some additional

aero components thrown in for good measure. The new V-Spec however will

give the Victory specification new meaning.

Nissan's new Nordeschliefe hopeful will be packing close to 390kWs, up

around 35kWs, while torque jumps almost 15Nms peaking just shy of

600Nms... delicious. The fun doesn't stop there either as the V-Spec

will shed some 90kgs from its portly frame bringing kerb weight down under

1700kgs. The drop in weight is thanks largely to the use of lightweight

body components, they've even gone as far as ditching the back seat and

adding a roll cage. If earlier reports are accurate, we should expect to

see new wheels and tyres with revised braking and suspension to round

out the package.

Reports from various GT-R dyno and road tests in the recent past have

claimed there's little chance the standard GT-R is producing the figures

Nissan has quoted so with this in mind, and a claimed target lap time of

7:25 at The Ring, Nissan's new V-Spec may pack quite a bit more punch

than expected. The bad news, besides the limited run, is the expected

$130,000 USD sticker price, almost double the standard car's demand on

your wallet. Will the extra dollars be worth it? Only time, and a

handful of lucky owners, will tell.
