Nissan GT-R SpecV Comes to Europe

Japanese manufacturer Nissan announced late last week the opening of its very own Sportscars Shop, a 500 square meters exhibition of "unique merchandise from Nissan and Nismo." In the midst of the "unique merchandise" Nissan has placed the GT-R SpecV, waiting for the official introduction on the European market later this year.

This high-performance version of Nissan's supercar offers numerous modifications compared to the production model, such as additional carbon fiber parts, carbon ceramic brakes, a titanium exhaust system and a button-operated, short-time torque booster.

In case you don't know, the GT-R, without the SpecV particle attached to its name, managed to beat the Nurburgring record, setting a new benchmarks at 7:26:70. The record setting GT-R is powered by an upgraded 3.6l twin-turbo V6 providing 485 horsepower, controlled through paddle-shifted dual clutch rear transmission. As for the European SpecV tech sheet, it is expected to surface soon.

Both the GT-R and the GT-R SpecV will be available for touch-and-feel at the new Nissan center, accompanied by the 370Z Nurburgring edition. Additionally, Nissan sports cars owners can purchase high-quality Nissan merchandise and its motor sports department Nismo, including rare items imported from Japan as well as scale models of the cars.

By the end of the year, Nissan plans the introduction of "a drift event at the Nurburgring, track days with the Nissan GT-R on the Nordschleife and a tour of the senses, a journey through the picturesque Eifel countryside surrounding the racetrack."
