Nissan has just unveiled its updated 2010 GT-R lineup at this week’s Tokyo Motor Show.

Set to go on sale early next year, the refreshed GT-R features a new HDD-based navigation system and picks up the rear diffuser from the GT-R SpecV.

In performance terms, Nissan has reworked the suspension settings “to offer enhanced, premium quality ride comfort, while still providing the driver with a feeling of direct contact with the road surface.” To make this happen, Nissan stiffened the rear suspension radius rod bushings as well as the front shock absorbers and springs.

The range-topping GT-R SpecV also receives reset rear shock absorbers as well as new high performance tyres from Dunlop (the previous Bridgestone tyres will still be offered as an option).

Apparently both the Nissan GT-R and GT-R SpecV achieve improved low- and mid-range engine response, thanks to newly adopted hexagonal meshed catalyst cells that reduce ventilation/airflow resistance.

Japanese pricing starts at 8,610,000 yen ($124,300 NZ) for the standard GT-R and tops out at 15,750,000 yen ($227,500 NZ) for a GT-R SpecV.
