Default 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec-V coming Janaury 8th, full specifications leaked

Cannot believe that this has not been posted yet with the way people like to arugue over this car.

From Autoblog:

Quote:
Over the weekend, Nissan and Datsun devotees descended on the Fuji Speedway to enjoy the festivities at the 12th NISMO Festival in Japan. In the lead-up to the event, speculation swirled that the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec-V would be revealed to the world, but instead, the Spec-V's modification list was leaked to GTR-World. The supposed specs leave us cold. Hit the jump to find out why.

According to GTR-World and the GTRBlog, engine output will swell from 485 PS (just over 478 hp) to 520 hp[ed.]. The transmission mode select button has been removed, supposedly meaning that "Race" is the only setting available. However, an "overboost" button is included in the package that increases mid-range boost pressure for overtaking maneuvers.

Carbon ceramic brakes will be hidden behind Rays 20-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in no-cost Dunlop tires, and the suspension is comprised of a retuned Bilstein Damptronic setup that is supposedly superior to the NISMO ClubSport package already offered.

The omnipresent weight issue has been (somewhat) addressed with the replacement of the back seats with a carbon fiber shelf, along with carbon fiber front thrones, front grille, rear wing and brake ducts on the front lip spoiler. More of the exotic weave can be found surrounding the IP and mirror switches, chrome replaces anything painted silver and black will be the only available interior color. A Thatchan alarm system, Electronic Toll Card system (ETC) and a Bose stereo are all optional, and a new color – Ultimate Black Pearl, a deep purple/black hue – is available for an additional 577,500 yen. All the other colors currently available to GT-R buyers will also be offered and pricing is supposedly set at 15,750,000 yen (base) and 16,978,000 yen with all the extras.

While anything offered from the factory has the weight of the Nissan/NISMO engineering team behind it, we're surprised by the limited diet and complete lack of power mods. Until we get official word from Nissan (Tokyo Auto Salon?), we're skeptical that this is the final spec sheet. Hopefully, we'll know soon enough. But in the meantime, color us less than impressed.

I think I would rather have the ZR1 if this is the specs. Just seems like a better value for performance IMO.

And just how does that leave the author cold? AFAIK this is the most extreme departure from standard that the V-Spec (Ahem, Spec-V now) has ever made.

This thing will be a step in the right direction -- especially in the weight department!

At current conversion rate today of $1 USD = 93.36 Yen,
that amounts to $181,855.18 with all the extras and $168,701.80 base.

NICE!

The currency conversion rates right now will def make things worse. Back when I came home from Japan earlier in the year, the rate was close to $1 US = 110 yen. I wish I didn't convert all my money to USD back then .

Somehow I don't think Nissan is going to sell the GTR Spec-V in the US using the same pricing structure as in Japan. They will most likely scale the price when it hits our shores, that is to say, if we even get it here. I wouldn't expect people to pay $170k for this car, but then again this is all IMO.

that is entirely not how currency conversion works when it comes to overseas pricing compared to what the car would cost IF it actually made it to the US, which it more than likely will not

either way, who cares, i wouldn't want to own the original either

Well typically you cannot compare prices like this, but in the case of the GTR it is almost exact the base price in Japan is 7,770,00 yen, or $82k.

QFT

It didn't really occur to me before, but the old V-Spec's weren't terribly different from the base model Skyline GT-R's, no reason to expect the GT-R to be terribly different. The Nismo versions are gonna be the real monsters.

I think the reason the author was left cold is the extreme price increase for what may not be an extreme performance increase. Everyone has been spoiled by ZR-1, so now if Nissan releases a GTR that may cost >$150k, people want it to be $50k better than the Corvette, and there is no way that it could be.

The GT2 is the only car you can touch for less.


The LP560 is what? $230,000

DB9 Starts at about $170,000

F430 Starts at about $190,000 and good luck getting one if you have not already owned a ferrari (IIRC "entry level" Ferrari are used ones)

Not true there are Ferrari dealerships where one can go and buy a new one even if their previous car were all festivas. Now the harder to get limited production models on the other hand maybe so.

^^ What he said. ^^

They literally won't sell you an Enzo unless you've own a few Ferrari's, but just about anyone can get a F430 if they have the scratch.
