Nissan leaks out GT-R Spec-V modifications list

Nissan leaks out GT-R Spec-V modifications list

Nissan GT-R fq

Last weekend the Fuji Speedway in Japan filled up with Nissan fans there to enjoy the festivities at the 12th NISMO Festival. Many of those attending thought the event would see the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec-V revealed to the world, but instead, only the Spec-V’s modification list was leaked out.

Apparently engine output will swell to 387kW (520 hp). The transmission mode select button has been removed, meaning that “Race” is the only setting available. However, an “overboost” button is included in the package that increases mid-range boost pressure for overtaking moves.

Carbon ceramic brakes will pack in behind Rays 20-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in Dunlop tyres, and the suspension is comprised of a retuned Bilstein Damptronic setup that is superior to the NISMO ClubSport package already offered.

Weight has been reduced with the replacement of the back seats with a carbon fibre shelf, along with the front grille, rear wing and brake ducts on the front lip spoiler. Interior carbon fibre can be found surrounding the mirror switches, chrome replaces anything painted silver and black will be the only available interior colour. An alarm system, and a Bose stereo are optional, and a new colour — Ultimate Black Pearl, a deep purple/black hue — is available for an additional 577,500 yen ($11,560 NZ). All the other colors currently available to GT-R buyers will also be offered and pricing is supposedly set at 15,750,000 yen ($315,490 NZ) and 16,978,000 yen ($340,000) with all the extras.
