The new limited production “T-spec” edition joins the Nissan GT-R range
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today announced a limited production 2021 GT-R “T-spec” special edition, which will be available in two iconic body colors and with a range of updated features.
Positioning above the GT-R Premium grade, the new low-volume GT-R T-spec adds wider front fenders than the previous Track Edition, gold-painted RAYS® forged aluminum alloy wheels and a carbon fiber rear spoiler. Body-colored rear-view mirrors, black hood ducts and T-spec badges complete the exterior changes. The carbon ceramic brakes with brake air guides of the GT-R NISMO have also been added.
Most notable of the new GT-R T-spec are the two unique exterior colors: Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple. Millennium Jade was previously offered on the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür, one of the rarest GT-Rs ever. With the track name inspired by the Nürburgring, only 718 V-Spec II Nür units were produced, of which only 156 in the Millennium Jade color. This is the first time this color will be offered on a GT-R in the Ú.S. market.
The new Midnight Purple is a modern interpretation of the R34 V-Spec’s Midnight Purple III, which was limited to 132 units, and the 2014 Midnight Opal R35 GT-R Special Edition which was limited to just 100 units worldwide. (50 in the US.).
The T-spec interior includes a special ‘Mori Green’ interior color, premium semi-aniline leather seats with pearl suede detailing, quilted Alcantara® headlining and additional T-spec badges.
Under the hood, T-spec GT-R customers will find the legendary hand-built 3.8-liter VR38DETT twin-turbo V6 engine, delivering 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. The refined powertrain is supported by an advanced 6-speed sequential dual-clutch gearbox with steering wheel gearbox with the GT-R’s exclusive ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system of the rear independent gearbox.
The GT-R T-spec 2021 joins the previously announced GT-R NISMO Special Edition with a very limited number of models available for sale in North America this winter. The price for the T-spec GT-R and GT-R NISMO Special Edition will be $ 138,4901 and $ 215,6901 respectively.
