Nissan GT-R Spec V vs Conti SS
Already weighty performers, now the honed Spec V and SS versions are about to throw stones at each other
Posted: 26 Oct 2010
Only GT-R trainspotters will register the Spec V's visual differences, though. The paint scheme - called Ultimate Opal Black - is unique, and more purple than black in the right light. There's a titanium exhaust, with reprofiled outlets. The moulding under the chin spoiler has grown a couple of new air inlets to cool the brakes, and the front grille and rear wing are made of carbon fibre. The lightweight alloy wheels are from Nissan's ace Nismo race and tuning arm, and if you peer hard enough you'll see the carbon-ceramic discs and silver calipers of Brembo's finest stopping equipment underneath. About 35 grand's worth of stopping equipment, apparently.
