Two New Nissan GT-R Special Editions Come In The Good Colors

Nissan seems intent on reaffirming that the GT-R lineup holds the best array of colors this side of a Paint-to-Sample 911 with the debut of two special edition variants this week. The T-spec Takumi Edition and Skyline Edition pay homage to aspects of the GT-R’s history. Starting with the former, the Takume Edition pays respect to the people who have been building the GT-R’s twin-turbo V6 engine since the car’s relaunch in 2007. Because of that, the engine bay will feature a gold VIN plate and the car will be finished in Midnight Purple with Mori Green interior trimmings. There are some mechanical updates, including carbon ceramic brakes with gold Rays wheels, and slightly wider front fenders with NISMO-tuned traction control software.

This one sounds like the one to have. Excellent though Bayside Blue is, Nissan makes no mention of mechanical enhancements for the GT-R Skyline Edition. Inside, there is a new Sora Blue interior color. Exact details on pricing and availability aren’t out yet, but the model will be hitting dealers “in very limited numbers” this summer.
