Nissan GTR V-Spec Officially Unveiled – 37 New Images Added


The V-Spec as we Malaysians call it or the Spec-V as the rest of the world calls it is officially here. Nissan has just released new images and an official press release on the celebrated V. Read on for Nissan’s official statement and all the information on the V-Spec.

TOKYO (Jan. 8, 2009) — Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced a new limited-production Nissan GT-R SpecV model, which goes on sale at seven specially selected Nissan dealers throughout Japan on February 2, 2009. The GT-R SpecV is targeted specifically at enthusiast drivers who desire race car-level performance in a street-legal vehicle.


Developed around the multi-dimensional Nissan GT-R sports car, which was introduced just more than one year ago to universal global acclaim, the new SpecV model builds on the original’s “ultimate supercar that anyone can enjoy driving anywhere, at anytime” philosophy – taking it to an entirely new level of “oneness between man and machine.” The SpecV model includes unique body, interior and performance equipment and modifications, raising the GT-R’s unmatched performance to even higher levels.


The GT-R SpecV’s new exterior features include a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber grille, and carbon fiber brake ducts. The SpecV is available exclusively in Ultimate Black Opal (RP) body color. Inside, the SpecV’s unique two-seat interior (non-SpecV GT-R models also include a two-place rear seat) offers special Recaro carbon fiber bucket seats, while carbon fiber insets embellish the rear center storage box, instrument panel and other trim areas.


Performance is enhanced with a new high gear boost control device, which momentarily increases boost of the engine’s twin turbochargers for greater torque in the intermediate-to-high speed ranges to provide a more powerful feeling of acceleration, while also allowing the engine to operate at a lower speed for improved fuel economy. Other modifications include a titanium-coated exhaust system and carbon-ceramic brakes that provide powerful stopping performance.


The GT-R SpecV is also equipped with lightweight, racing-style forged aluminum wheels that were developed for this model and have been sold by Nissan Motorsports International (NISMO) since September 2008. The lighter unsprung weight provided by the new wheels, together with the enhanced braking capability, an exclusive suspension and high-grip tires, combine to deliver the SpecV’s exceptional performance.

    Is the GTR officially experted anywhere? I can’t seem to find any official dealers around the world for it. I think its only for domestic market only. Hence the problems stated by links is actually very true. I think the owners in Malaysia & Singapore would be scratching their heads now if problems comes up.

    The wheels have to be the same weight and dimensions to fool the computer into believing it is still using OEM wheels. It is stated long time ago.

    It is also rumoured that the GTR ECU has anti hacking properties. U can’t replace a main chip like last time. It seems like the ECU is like a mini computer, like you can’t work without a graphics card or ram.

    I wonder if the ECU processing power is as powerful as a PS3? hahaha. Polyphony’s job here.

    I don’t think you can make use of MOTEC or any aftermarket ECU on this thing. This is probably the only car is built wholy around the ECU. Take a look at the GT500 Super GT GTR. It isn’t using the stock engine, for apparent reason. hahaha.

    Anyway this car is history in the making. A legend no matter how many complaints coming from users.
