This is it, the lighter, track-focussed GT-R, the Nurburgring-obliterating weapon bedecked in carbon fibre. Forget the dubious paint-job - it's the Spec V's signature colour, but we can't say we're sold - and focus instead on the mechanical goodness on show here.
The Spec V is 60kg lighter than the standard GT-R, mainly by ripping out the rear seats - there are just a pair of, well, holes there now - and adding lots of lovely carbon fibre: there's a beautiful carbon fibre spoiler, thinner carbon fibre seats and a carbon fibre front splitter.
New Potenza cut-slick tyres - which look like they'd be hellish through standing water - along with stiffer springs and bigger brakes complete the mechanical revisions.
The Spec V doesn't get any extra power - but 470bhp was hardly shoddy in the first place - but there's now an ‘overboost' function, which increases peak torque for up to 80 seconds, and a freer-breathing titanium exhaust.
All of which is good, but here's the bad news: Nissan still hasn't confirmed whether the Spec V will make it to Europe. If it does, it'll be in very limited numbers - a couple of dozen only, perhaps - with a six-figure price tag. That's pounds, not yen, sadly.
