All eyes on the new limited-edition T-spec Nissan GTR

It's a stunner, isn't it?

Right, so we have a new Nissan GTR special edition for 2021. And in order to put the special edition T-spec into perspective, allow me to get this out of the way: the T-spec Nissan GTR is a parts bin special.

However, that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Being a parts bin special can mean that it borrows parts from better cars, and for the most part, that's the case with the T-spec. The GT-R T-spec borrows wider front fenders which were previously seen on the Track edition, and ceramic brakes with brake air guides from the legendary GT-R NISMO. All of a sudden, being a parts bin special isn't that bad.

A gorgeous set of gold-painted RAYS rims replace your typical GT-R rims, and your rear wing is now made out of carbon fiber. However, as impressive as that may all be, the best part of the GT-R T-spec is the color options.

There are two exclusive paint colors that you can drape your GT-R in; both of which are some that haven't been available for a GT-R for years. The first of the two is Millennium Jade, which was only offered on the R34 GT-R V-Spec Nür. Only 718 of these special-edition GT-R's were ever built, and out of those, only 156 were equipped with the Millennium Jade paint option. And while that sounds impressive, what's even more shocking is the second color option, Midnight Purple. A commemoration of the Midnight Purple III from the R34 V-Spec, Midnight Purple comes back for the GT-R T-spec.

Under the glory of all that paint sits the GT-R's standard twin-turbo V6, producing 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. The 6-speed dual-clutch transmission and legendary all-wheel drive both stick around for the GT-R T-spec.

In the interior of the GT-R T-spec, you'll find a "Mori Green" colored interior, as well as quilted Alcantara headliner and some T-spec badging.

Pricing for the GT-R T-spec starts at $138,490, and it'll be available in the winter of 2021. Better get your wallets ready!

  • So why cannot Nissan field anything else that looks appropriate for what it is? Their big SUV looks like a frickin beached whale
