Nissan GT-R V-Spec spied

Despite its immense performance, the new Nissan GT-R tips the scales at nearly two-tonnes - it is without doubt the only Achilles heel of this unstoppable beast. However even before the GT-R has made it into showrooms around the world, Nissan has been busy developing its trademark V-Spec series. The formula is simple - less weight, more power.

Nissan GT-R V-Spec -1Nissan GT-R V-Spec -2Nissan GT-R V-Spec -3Best estimates at the moment rate the V-Spec edition with at least 410kW - up from 358kW in the standard GT-R.An equally substantial weight-loss is also anticipated, speculated to be at least 150kg lighter. In addition to a revised front splitter with integrated air intakes - presumably for the brakes, carbon fibre is expected to replace many of the major body panels to save weight.

The mismatched bonnet colour may also indicate a full carbon-fibre replacement.The golden Brembo calipers are a no-show on the V-Spec mule, instead revealing an enviable carbon-ceramic setup.

Already blitzing the competition around the now benchmark Nurburgring race track in Germany, Nissan’s objective for the V-Spec is a sub-7.25 minute lap time - 18 seconds faster than the current GT-R.
