Whenever a new hot rod launches, the aftermarket goes nuts building performance and styling bits for it. Soon after, the manufacturer often ups the ante with their own hotter version. With just under a year of public consumption under the belt of their GT-R, Nissan has revealed the SpecV version of their all wheel drive weapon.
Sporting just 2 seats and carbon fiber everything, the SpecV takes the already serious GT-R and turns it into a track day monster aimed at owners who intend to really use the car on the track. Interesting that along with weight management and performance tweaks, that they haven’t included safety upgrades (like a roll cage) to make the car truly track ready.
Funny thing is that the photo above supplied with the press release shows the SpecV in red, but the car is only available in Black Opal.
Sadly, it will not be available in North America for the time being.
See the black car and full press release after the break.
