Next in line for an allocation of R35 GT-Rs is Europe, and judging from the specification list, it will be the recently updated Series II variety that makes its way across to the continent. The Series II cars (according to Nissan) will lose their Launch Control feature, however, this deletion has been compensated for with the addition of a range of minor improvements, as listed below:

  • Engine output increased by 5hp.
  • White body colour changed from paint code QX1 to QAB (known as Storm White in Europe and Brilliant White in Japan).
  • Brembo brake calipers rebadged to Nissan.
  • Front License plate base removed.
  • Fuel tank capacity increased from 71 litres to 73.8 litres.
  • Improved fuel economy down to 11.7 l/100kms.
  • Brake Hose stiffness increased.
  • Wheel colour change, Black Edition wheels are now ?Real Black" colour., Premium and base are now the Gunmetal Grey. and Silver wheels hve been dropped.
  • Dunlop SP Sport 600 DSST fitted as standard, Bridgestone as an option (The Dunlops are the same tyres fitted during the GT-R's much publicised Nurburgring lap).

Naturally these improvements come at a cost, with the price of each model rising around three to four percent. The base model Euro-spec GT-R will cost ?56,795, an additional ?1,300 will get you the Black Edition, while ?2,600 extra is required on top of the base price for the Premium Edition. The Ultimate Silver paint scheme has also gone up and now attracts a price premium of ?2683, an increase of ?385.

Ultimately, the loss of launch control is unlikely to affect sales of the Series II spec cars. The price increase has been made a little more palatable by the addition of a raft of minor upgrades, and the R35 GT-R will continue its giant killing ways. It may be one of those rare cars that represents such good value from a dollar vs performance basis, that it will prove to be recession proof.
