2010 Nissan GT-R Spec-V Details Leaked

The highly anticipated specs for the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec-V have leaked their way into the auto blog world and are dispelling quite a few rumors that had begun to brew. Contrary to fanboy belief, the new GT-R Spec-V will not be equipped with a 520-hp engine but will instead be powered by the same 478-hp twin turbo V6 found under the hood of the current GT-R. Since big girls don’t get much love from speed demons, Nissan attempted to slim down the 3,814lb curb weight by replacing the rear seats with a carbon fiber shelf. The interior and exterior aerodynamic components also received the carbon fiber treatment, but it’s unclear how successful the tweaks were in reducing the overall curb weight since Nissan has decided to sit on that particular detail for now.

A few numbers Nissan didn’t mind throwing out, however, were the ones found on the 2010 GT-R’s price tag. Scheduled to drop 8 days into 2009 (unheard of given its technical status as a 2010 model-year ricer – ahem, beg your pardon – racer), the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec-V will be available for a cool $160,000.

    Awesome specs. I hope I can officially hit under 7:20 at the ‘nurburger’ ring.

    btw, isn’t it V-spec , not Spec-V? ( the V fittingly stands for victory)
    Spec-V’s a variant of the Sentra.

    Looks friggin awesome! Hopefully it will never become just another “ricer”. Tuners killed the R34.

    PS. Wardez, V-Spec was used for the R34, Spec-V is right for the R35.

    I was on the freeway in my 300zx x/32 this morning when out of nowhere this V-spec comes racing up on my side does a couple left/rights in his lane revs the motor a few times to show off then(like a prom dress) off he flew. Agressively Weaving through traffic. He probley should have been paying more attention to the state trooper that was lerking as they do soo well. cause he didnt seem to impressed with the car or the driver.
