14 years old. It was then that the Nissan GT-R made its debut in the automotive world. Here we are in 2021, still celebrating Nissan’s continued production of its sustainable supercar. Now it comes with a colorful twist in the form of the 2021 GT-R T-spec.
As mentioned in the title, this latest special edition GT-R will be available in Millennium Jade. Skyline fans know that it was last used on the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür, one of the rarest GT-Rs of all. The color was never offered in North America, but it’s now one of two choices for the new T-Spec. Midnight Purple is the second color choice, which Nissan says is a “modern interpretation” of two previous purples – Midnight Opal from another GT-R special edition released in 2014, and Midnight Purple III from the older Skyline R34 V-Spec.
What else does the GT-R T-spec have to offer? Think of it as a more tamed GT-R Track Edition without the suspension upgrades. You get the Track’s wider front fenders and carbon fiber rear spoiler. Gold-finished spoke forged aluminum wheels sit in the corners, with carbon-ceramic brakes behind them. The GT-R Nismo’s brake air guides are also part of the package, and of course you can’t have a GT-R Special Edition without body-colored mirrors, black hood ducts and lots of T badges. -spec inside and out. Speaking of interior, you’ll find a new interior color Mori Green with lots of leather, suede and Alcantara.
The powertrain is intact, which means 565 horsepower (421 kilowatts) from the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 driving all four wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Rumors of a GT-R from the final edition with 700 hp (522 kW) persist, but alas, these rumors are not proven today.
Nissan says the GT-R T-spec pitches above GT-R Premium, but the automaker is timid as to how many it will build. One thing that the press announcement makes clear is that yes, this is a 2021 model. Usually, the September debut is for all of the next year’s models, but with the GT-R coming out on top. is already 14 years old, we don’t blame Nissan for wanting to slow the clock down a bit. As such, we suspect that the T-spec will be very limited in production, but it will reach America in the winter with a starting price of $ 138,490, not including $ 1,795 in destination fees.
