The production version of the GT-R has debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, with its launch in the Japanese market scheduled for 6 December 2007. The U.S. launch will follow in June 2008. Europe will be the third market, where it is expected to be launched late 2008. The large time distance between these releases is due to Nissan having to build GT-R performance centres where the car is built and serviced. Also the engine and rear-mounted dual-clutch gearbox are built by hand, limiting production to around 1000 cars a month. Prices start at $66,675 for the base model, $68,580 for the Black Edition (with forged wheels and black/red leather) and $71,900 for the Premium edition (forged wheels, beige leather seats, Bose premium speakers and a Thatcham alarm as standard fit).
It has already been driven by Autoweek in Germany in the new Nürburgring, in the autobahn and in small roads. Also, photos of the production vehicle were published a week early since Motor Trend broke the embargo.
It has been confirmed that Nissan is planning to introduce a lighter and more powerful GT-R called the GT-R Spec V. Little else has been revealed about the GT-R Spec V except that it will be available in the United States in 2010

GT-R Test mules had been spotted on the Nürburgring, frequently alongside a 2006 Porsche 911 turbo; speculated as being used by Nissan as a benchmark car. Sources had expressed that the car is capable of lapping the Nürburgring in the 7 minute range. Nissan has confirmed a Nurburgring lap time of 7 minutes 38.54 seconds, and have released a video of the lap. The standard Bridgestone POTENZA RE070R run flat tires were used for this. Nissan is reportedly going after the previous lap record of the Porsche Carrera GT. The start and end points appear to be inconsistent in the video and some doubt have been raised in the automotive community
The GT-R has undergone road testing around the southwest United States, with sightings in New Mexico and California. As was the case in the Nurburgring, the car was followed by a 911 turbo. The GT-R has also been sighted doing laps at Infineon Raceway and Laguna Seca. At Laguna Seca, the GT-R posted an unofficial lap time of 1 minute 39.62 seconds, a time marginally faster than the 911 turbo following it which was timed at 1 minute 39.89 seconds.
A test of the Japanese production spec GT-R by online auto-magazine Edmunds provided a 3.3-second 0-60-mph run, and 11.6 at 120.9 mph quarter mile with launch control. Edmunds speculated that faster times may be achievable on better road conditions than provided by the runway which they used for the test
Nissan chief creative officer, Shiro Nakamura, has likened the new GT-R to the eponymous giant robots of the Gundam series. Nakamura states: "The GT-R is unique because it is not simply a copy of a European-designed supercar, it had to really reflect Japanese culture." Specifically, Nakamura noted that the GT-R's square lines and vents were influenced by Gundam. Designers from Japan, America, and Europe contributed to the final GT-R shape.
Gran Turismo creators Polyphony Digital were themselves involved in the development of the GT-R, having been contracted to design the GT-R's multifunction display.
The new GT-R has been reported by both the automotive press as well as sources within Nissan as being harder to modify than the previous Skyline GT-Rs, due to the supposedly 'untuneable' ECU. Nissan has also gone through lengths to safeguard the car against modification with sensors alerting the dealer of any performance modifications and nullifying the warranty. However, it has been reported that Nissan has given access to the car to select tuners, already Japanese tuning houses Mine's, MCR and Top Secret have been seen testing modified GT-Rs with the former two having conducted tests at the Tsukuba Circuit.
THE LEGEND IS REAL !!!
