Nissan announced a special edition of its 2014 GT-R supercar today that will cost $6,000 more than the base “premium” model.
Priced at $106,590 including delivery, Nissan will manufacture 100 of its special edition GT-R sport coupes. The U.S. will soak up 50 of them. In some ways, the special edition is actually a bargain. Drivers get features found on the more expensive “Black Edition” at a discount. Here’s what you can expect.
Nissan dresses the car in a special “midnight opal” paint color and tacks on extras including model-specific wheels. You’ll also get a dry carbon fiber rear spoiler similar to the one found on the GT-R Track Edition that debuted during the Chicago Auto Show in February.
That car costs $116,710 and offers a hardcore level of performance specifically designed for track performance. Changes to that car include specialized Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers with higher spring rates. The car also gets new brake cooling guides and a revised front spoiler.
Aside from the 545-hp 3.8-liter twin turbo six cylinder engine, there will also be a gold-plated plaque under the hood with a serial number. All 2014 GT-Rs come with an aluminum plate showing the engine builder’s name. Changes for the Special Edition are minimal compared to the Track Edition.
Sales of the exclusive GT-Rs begin this fall.
