Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. just announced the new Nissan GT-R for the Japan market. The announcement also revealed two limited-grade models, namely the GT-R Premium Edition T-spec and the GT-R Track Edition Engineered by NISMO T-spec. All models are scheduled to be released on the second half of October 2021.
The limited-edition T-specs will come with a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, exclusive carbon ceramic brakes, an exclusive badge for the front and rear, as well as an exclusive engine cover.
Only 100 units of the limited-edition models are planned to be released, and successful purchases will be selected by lot.
The T-spec options have added two new body colors: Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple. Millennium Jade conveys sophistication, and gives off a subtle, but powerful presence. Midnight Purple is inspired by the color-shift of the aurora borealis and is an updated and improved version of the color that was seen on previous GT-Rs.
The T-spec nomenclature is inspired by the words ‘trend’ and ‘traction’, and it also embodies GT-R’s philosophy of leading and shaping the times. As an innovator, the GT-R was made to always be a step ahead of the times. The GT-R engineers worked hard on giving the GT-R the key ability to drive with a robust grip, making it a traction master.
There will also be an exclusive interior design for the Nissan GT-R Premium Edition T-spec. It will also be equipped with Rays forged alloy wheels (bronze) and suspension that utilizes the weight reductions below the springs. It was also given an expanded wheel-rim width to increase its rigidity and enable a smooth and sensitive handling.
The GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO T-spec was developed focusing on enhancing driving performance. To ensure that, it was given an exclusive carbon-fiber roof and trunk lid. The GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO is based on the standard model and it is enhanced with NISMO technology.
It will be interesting to see if Nissan is likely to come out with a new design as they’ve been carrying the aesthetic of the Nissan GTR for over a decade now.
