[What is SPEC V?]
The concept of base GT-R is "the fastest vehicle for anyone, at anytime, under any condition". As proven, base GT-R is already fast on race tracks, but there are compromising in some aspects because it was designed for driving fast on winding roads and highways also. SpecV is a model that is completely focused on race tracks.
Below are some the differences of Spec V from base GT-R.
- No rear seats
- 60kg lighter body (carbon fiber bucket seats, interior, rear wing)
- High Gear Boost Controller
- Titan Exhaust System
- New Suspension Setting
- Carbon Ceramic Brakes
[More Description from Wikipedia]
Nissan introduced the GT-R SpecV on January 7, 2009 at the 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon. Exterior changes from the base GT-R consist of a carbon fiber rear spoiler, grille, and brake ducts, along with an exclusive Ultimate Black Opal paint job. Interior changes include a set of carbon fiber Recaro front seats with the rear seats being completely removed. Carbon fiber covers the center storage box, instrument panel, and replaces the majority of the interior trim.
The GT-R SpecV is powered by the standard twin-turbo 3,799 cc (3.8 L; 231.8 cu in) V6 with no increase in horsepower. A new high gear Boost controller that allows a temporary increase in Boost pressure to the IHI twin turbochargers, now larger than those on the standard GT-R, should deliver more torque in mid to high-range revs. Other mechanical changes include a titanium Exhaust, reworked suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, and 20-inch (510 mm) NISMO wheels. Overall weight is decreased by 132 lb (60 kg) over the standard GT-R.
Japan sales began on February 2, 2009 at seven pre-selected dealers who are staffed by mechanics with special GT-R SpecV training and are knowledgeable of racing circuit driving. Pricing is set at ¥15,750,000 (over US$160,000). Nissan has yet to announce any plans to sell the Spec V in the USA.

2012 Nissan GT-R EGOIST
The actual car looked really beautiful. This "Egoist" shares a common
concept as "Spec M" for R34 GT-R. It comes with all the comfortable
equipments you can think of in ultimate quality, but still laps Nurburgring

- Wajima Lacquer (Maki-e) Emblem

2010 Nissan GT-R R35 ... Number 1 Sports Car
2009 International Car of the Year.
The Nissan GT-R has been rated the coolest trend car of today by the
very famous german car magazine "Auto Bild".
Nissan claims the GT-R can reach a top speed of 192 mph (309 km/h), Motor
Trend recorded a top speed of 195.0 mph (313.8 km/h). It has been tested to
achieve 0-60 mph (97 km/h) times as low as 3.2 seconds with launch control
and 3.9 seconds without (improved to 3.5 seconds in models produced since
March 2009). Autocar achieved a 0-100 mph (160 km/h) time of 8.5 seconds.
With a manufacturer claimed lap time of 7:26:7 min on standard Japanese
market tires, the GT-R is currently one of the fastest production cars to
lap the Nürburgring circuit.
The GT-R currently holds a lap time of 1:19.7 around the Top Gear Test
Track, equalling that of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia.
Road & Track were able to achieve quick lap times with the car on
Buttonwillow Raceway, clocking in approximately 5 seconds faster than the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and
Porsche 911 turbo.
On Willow Springs International Motorsports Park, Edmunds were able to
achieve lap times that were approximately 1 second slower than a Chevrolet
Corvette ZR1 with the GT-R.
Several automotive journalists, including Chris Harris of Autocar, Jethro
Bovingdon of Evo, and Jason Barlow of Top Gear (magazine) have compared the
GT-R to the Bugatti Veyron. Harris and Bovingdon both
labeled the GT-R a "baby Veyron" in their respective
comparison tests of the car.
The production version of the GT-R debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show,
launching in the Japanese market on December 6, 2007. The U.S. official
launch was 7 months later on July 07, 2008. Universal Nissan in Los Angeles
provided a customer with the delivery of a new GT-R, fresh from the
production line at 12:01 AM, on July 7, 2008. The Canadian launch was also
in July 2008. Europe became the third consumer market, where it launched
late in the year. The large disparity in initial marketing between these
regional releases is due to Nissan having to build GT-R performance centers
where the car is serviced. Also the engine and rear-mounted dual-clutch
gearbox are built by hand, thus limiting production to around 1000 cars a

Coming back from a photo shoot we took the liberty of doing a couple of Boost pulls. At one point the Supra
looses traction at about 70mph. With more than 800HP traction is the
biggest problem. The GT-R on the other hand equipped with a COBB Access
Port, HKS GT570 Kit &Legamax Exhaust
has low speed wheel spin of all 4 tires. Both cars professionally built and
tuned at Illtech Auto Salon in Tacoma WA.
