Nissan has unveiled a new version of its fire-breathing GT-R in Japan.

The line-up includes two limited editions — GT-R Premium Edition T-spec and GT-R Track Edition Engineered by NISMO T-spec.

Just 100 units will be offered for sale, with successful purchasers to be selected by lot.

The T-spec limited editions are equipped with exclusive carbon-ceramic brakes, carbon-fibre rear spoiler, exclusive engine cover and exclusive badging front and back.

Two new body colours, Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade, have been added to the T-spec options.

Midnight Purple is an advanced version of the colour used on previous generations of GT-Rs and is inspired by colour-shifting of the aurora borealis.

Millennium Jade exudes sophistication and conveys a quiet, yet powerful presence.

With a 3.8-litre twin turbo V6, the current GT-R pumps out 421kW of power and 633Nm of torque.

The Nismo delivers Nismo raises the bar with 447kW of power and 652Nm of torque.

No word yet whether the limited edition ups the ante, but fans are hopeful.

It begs the question, however, how much power is too much?

T-spec represents the GT-R’s philosophy of leading and shaping the times, and is inspired by the words ‘trend’ and ‘traction’.

Premium Edition T-spec adds an exclusive interior design, Rays forged alloy wheels in bronze and suspension that takes advantage of weight reductions below the springs.

An expanded wheel-rim width has increased tyre rigidity, enabling smooth and sensitive handling.

Developed with a focus on enhanced driving performance, the GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO T-spec is specially equipped with an exclusive carbon-fibre roof and trunk lid.

GT-R Track Edition engineered by Nismo is a grade based on the standard model enhanced with Nismo technology.

This GT-R could be the last of its kind as the world speeds towards a greener, electric future.

 

CHECKOUT: New Z. Now you’re talking, Nissan!

CHECKOUT: More power, more torque, more Zed
