While Nissan has been keen on introducing fuel efficient sedans and hatchback in the North American market, the Japanese automaker has now decided to focus on high performance sports car. Nissan has now announced the limited production 2014 Nissan GT-R Special Edition package with hand painted Midnight Opal exterior. The carmaker said that this will be a limited edition and therefore the MSRP of the vehicle will be $105,590 which is a hike of $6000 over the Premium GT-R model that they already have in the market. Nissan announced that they will make only 100 cars of this model and half of that will be available in the United States and will be available at the dealerships in September 2013 through certified US Nissan GT-R dealers only.
While the exterior of the car will be very much similar to the Premium GT-R model but this special edition will have new Midnight Opal exterior paint which is applied by hand and not by a regular paint machine. The paint has been specially manufactured and changes slightly from deep purple to deep blue depending on the light conditions and viewing angle. This is the first time that Nissan has introduced this exterior color that has hyper-titanium color coating on the RAYS forged lightweight wheels. The special edition will also have dry carbon fiber rear spoiler along with gold plated serialize plaque in the engine compartment.
Under the hood, 2014 Nissan GT-R Special Edition will have the same engine as the Premium models. The car will be powered by VR38DETT 3.8 liter twin turbo V6 engine that pumps out 545 horsepower and 463 lb feet of torque along with exclusive Premium Midship platform that uses ATTESA E-TS all wheel drive system. The car also gets better sculpted bucket seats and cockpit style driver cabin with large center mounted tachometer and multi-functional display along with 11 speaker Bose sound system.
