Nissan is to give it's thrilling GT-R even more muscle. A hotter V-Spec derivative is currently undergoing testing and it is set to take the performance car market by storm.
Apparently Nissan has also set a sub-7 minute 25 second Nürburgring goal for the GT-R V-Spec, which is 18 seconds faster than the current car!
The GT-R V-Spec's turbocharged engine will see an increase in boost, raising output to at least 409kW - up from the standard GT-R's 353kW.
The newcomer will get a revised front splitter, which sports some additional air intake slits, presumably to feed more cooling air to the brakes.
New six-spoke wheels also house what appear to be a revised braking system. The golden Brembo brake callipers were an ever-present feature even on the first GT-R prototypes, but they're a no-show on this tester.
A closer look at the prototype's brakes reveal that the road-going GT-R V-Spec will likely use a carbon-ceramic setup.
The standard GT-R is no featherweight. And while it obviously overcomes any weight penalty in heroic fashion, it's compelling to imagine a GT-R that's some 150kg lighter. The V-Spec is rumoured to shave at least that much weight thanks to the use of carbon fibre body panels, and other assorted techniques.
The prototype photographed has a portion of its rear wing blacked-out, suggesting it is one of the carbon fibre pieces that will make up the V-Spec package.
