The Nissan GT-R made its Canadian debut in 2008 and has undergone quite a few changes over the years. One thing that hasn’t changed is how thrilling it is to get behind the wheel of this high-performance vehicle. Nissan has recently announced the arrival of two GT-R special editions: T-spec and NISMO.
GT-R T-spec Edition
The new Nissan GT-R T-spec is available in two luxurious colours, Midnight Purple and the new-for-Canada Millennium Jade. Inside, the cabin is filled with Mori Green semi-aniline leather-appointed seating with pearl suede accents, T-spec badging, and a quilted Alcantara® headliner. In terms of performance, the GT-R T-spec is equipped with a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 engine that’s capable of 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. An advanced paddle-shifted sequential six-speed DCT is paired to the engine. The T-spec sports the independent rear transaxle all-wheel drive system that can be found on the standard GT-R.
The previously announced GT-R NISMO is even more powerful than the T-spec. Under the hood is a similar twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8. But because this model utilizes a variety of components to dial into maximum turbo power, the engine is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The NISMO also shows off an exclusive Stealth Gray colour, new 20-inch RAYS® forged aluminum-alloy wheels with red accents, and a clear-coated carbon fibre hood.
As special-edition models, a limited number of these exhilarating vehicles will be available throughout Canada. To learn more, contact our team at Avenue Nissan in Toronto, Ontario.
