2014 Nissan GT-R will be available as a limited Special Edition model featuring the new hand-painted Midnight Opal exterior. The highly reflective paint treatment changes appearance slightly from a deep purple to a deep blue depending on light conditions and viewing angle. In addition to the custom paint, GT-R Special Editions also feature a never before offered in the U.S. hyper-titanium colored coating on the RAYS forged lightweight wheels, a dry carbon fiber rear spoiler similar to that utilized on the GT-R Black and GT-R Track Editions, and a gold-plated serialized plaque of authenticity located in the engine compartment.
Based on the GT-R Premium model, the new GT-R Special Edition comes with Nissan’s advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 rated at 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque (hand assembled in a special clean room) and exclusive Premium Midship platform that enables the use of the dynamic independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system. Total vehicle adjustability is provided by set-up switches located in the center of the instrument panel, enabling the driver to adjust transmission, shock absorbers and the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC-R) among three settings – Normal, Special or R.
The interior features sculpted performance bucket seats and a cockpit-style instrument panel with a large center-mounted tachometer and multi-function display – which includes mechanical and driving information, as well as an on-board driving recorder. A specially designed 11-speaker Bose sound system with speakers mounted in rigid aluminum die cast panels is standard.
Half of the 100 total units available worldwide will be available in the U.S. Sales are scheduled to begin in September through certified U.S. Nissan GT-R dealers. United States pricing for the car is $105,590 USD, a $6,000 USD increase over the GT-R Premium model M.S.R.P.
