The GT-R remains Nissan’s pride and despite its age, the Godzilla keeps fighting in the performance stable against newer brutal offerings.
For the 2021 model year, Nissan in Japan has unveiled its new GT-R in two limited grades; Premium Edition T-Spec and Track Edition Engineers by Nismo T-Spec.
Sadly, both Nissan GT-R models are strictly for the Japanese market and only 100 units will be built. They come equipped with bespoke carbon-ceramic brakes, carbon fibre rear spoiler, exclusive engine cover and front and rear badges. Power still comes from the hand-built 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6, mustering 421 kW and 633 Nm through a 6-speed dual clutch automatic transmission that sends power to all four corners.
The special edition models come in two new body colours; Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade.
In case you are wondering what the T-Spec represents, it is the GT-R’s philosophy of leading and shaping the times and is inspired by the words trend and traction.
The new Nissan GT-R Premium Edition T-Spec is bolstered with an exclusive interior design but Nissan does not make mention of the details. It features Rays forged alloy wheels (bronze), and suspension that takes advantage of weight reductions below the springs. The wheel-rim width has been expanded for increased tyre rigidity.
The GT-R Track Edition engineered by Nismo T-Spec is based on the standard model enhanced with Nismo technology and comes fitted with an exclusive carbon fibre roof and boot lid.
The new GT-Rs are scheduled to go on sale in Japan in October.
