Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has announced a new limited production Nissan GT-R Spec V model, which goes on sale at seven
specially selected Nissan dealers throughout Japan next month. The GT-R Spec V is targeted at enthusiast drivers who
desire race car-level performance in a street-legal vehicle.
Developed around the multi-dimensional Nissan GT-R sports car, the new Spec V model builds on the originalís
ďultimate super car that anyone can enjoy driving anywhere, at anytimeĒ philosophy. The Spec V includes unique body,
interior and performance equipment and modifications, raising the GT-Rís performance to even higher levels.
The GT-R Spec Vís new exterior features include a carbon fibre rear spoiler, a carbon fibre grille and carbon fibre
brake ducts. It is available in Japan exclusively in Ultimate Black Opal (RP) body colour.

The GT-R Spec V is also equipped with light weight, 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 Vís exceptional performance.
