Nissan has revealed yet another GT-R variant early Tuesday called the T-spec, meant to slot above the Premium trim in the supercar’s lineup. Using the same twin-turbo V-6 AWD powertrain as the rest of the GT-R lineup, T-spec cars feature a number of exclusive performance and cosmetic upgrades, including the availability of two legendary Skyline paint colors, Midnight purple and Millennium jade.
The name T-spec is inspired by the words “trend” and “traction,” according to Nissan. “As a trend-maker, the GT-R is created to always be ahead of the times, and the car’s ability to drive with robust grip—a key characteristic engineers have always worked hard on—make it a traction master,” reads the global press release.
Under the hood of the GT-R T-spec is the same hand-built VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 making 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque going to all four wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch transmission mounted at the rear of the car. The real upgrades lie in the body and braking system. For the full story, check out this article from Road & Track.
