Nissan Press Release

2009 Nissan GT-R Spec VNissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced a new limited-production Nissan GT-R Spec V model, which goes on sale at seven specially selected Nissan dealers throughout Japan on February 2, 2009. The GT-R Spec V 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 Spec V 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 Spec V model includes unique body, interior and performance equipment and modifications, raising the GT-R's unmatched performance to even higher levels.

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

2009 Nissan GT-R Spec VPerformance 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 Spec V is also equipped with lightweight, racing-style forged aluminium 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 tyres, combine to deliver the Spec V's exceptional performance.

The Spec V will be sold at the following seven dealer outlets, each of which is staffed by mechanics with special GT-R Spec V training and who are knowledgeable of racing circuit driving.
