Here's a real VSpecII Nur =)



Bumped into it somewhere in JB today. Too bad couldn't get to take pics of the engine bay.

Quick fact about the M-Spec.. (from evo.co.uk)

A new team of engineers is headed by Kazutoshi Mizuno, former Nissan Le Mans chief engineer and Group C team manager.

One of the first things Mizuno did, while he and his team worked on the handling traits of the new V35 Skyline saloon, was to modify the GT-R's V-spec suspension set-up. He felt that its harsh, highly strung, razor-edged road-handling characteristics were good for circuit racing - on smooth racetracks - but that in the real world, on real roads, it needed more compliance. The resulting M-spec (obviously using the M from Mizuno!), is not just a better rounded GT-R on all road surfaces, but has repercussions for the sportscar on a worldwide scale. More on that in a minute.

Like the new V35 Skyline saloon, the M-spec employs Nissan's new 'ripple-control' shock absorbers which work to soak up even the smallest bumps or road undulations to maximise tyre contact with the road. To further ensure the rear stays planted, Mizuno also fitted a modified rear anti-roll bar and revised all the spring rates to enhance the effect of the ripple control upgrade. Whether at high speed on a highway or at lower speeds on the twisty bits, the new suspension set-up is where the R-34 should have started. Not only does it provide a more supple ride. It also allows an average driver more leeway when cornering hard, as you don't have to worry about the tail stepping out so far and so fast. When it does start to go, it is easier to catch and control.

'Of course the M-spec offers a far more comfortable ride on public roads and highways, but its race heritage has not been ignored,' said Mizuno. 'I would say the M-spec is more suited to endurance races while the V-spec is better suited to short sprints where hundredths of a second mean everything.'

To that end, the GT-R must employ a suspension system that does not jump and bounce around on marginalised surfaces but one that can handle the high-speed touring on the autobahns and autostradas of Europe. One Nissan source said that during a test at 250kph on the autobahn, 'the V-spec's harsh settings led to temporary traction loss as the car jumped all over the place'. Mizuno's modifications give it the capability to cruise effortlessly at that speed and higher - essential if it's to compete with the Porsche 911.

Another aspect of the M-spec that helps makes it the most desirable GT-R ever, is the attention to detail inside and out. Finished in a new gold silica paint, the car's surface colours change depending on the angle with which light reflects off it. And inside, Nissan offers some rare craftsmanship. Back at the factory, a couple of leather workers have been specially employed to cut top quality leather for the M-spec's moulded bucket seats with stitched GT-R emblem, steering wheel, gear shift and hand brake lever. This takes time, which is limiting production to 50 cars a month.
