As we learn more about the upcoming model refresh we’re surprised again at how much Nissan is changing. The car changes so much in fact that the model designator is changing too, so long CBA-R35 – meet the DBA-R35.

Posted Image

The DBA-R35 is available in a truly astonishing number of variaties, more than we probably thought we’d see just 3 years ago when the CBA-R35 first launched. With the 2012 model comes updates to the Spec-V Nissan GT-R as well. It receives all of the cosmetic frills that will even further compliment with it’s range topping hardware underpinnings. As predicted though it is no longer the most most expensive street GT-R money can buy as, with the right options ticked, the new 2012 Spec-M ultra luxury Nissan GT-R edges it out in some ways.

What we can tell by the information that’s been leaked to us so far is the Spec-M will command a high price tag after all. I was hoping that rumors to the contrary were true and that the Spec-M would be priced sort of closer to the Premium GT-R ballpark but it winds up being more like SpecV ballpark. Let’s compare the pricing below for the known current and 2012 variants of the Nissan DBA-R35 GT-R:






































DBA-R35 Model Pricing in Japan (yen)
Pure Edition 8,694,000
Black Edition 9,303,000
Premium Edition 9,450,000
Club Track Edition 10,479,000 (plus member fees etc)
SpecM 15,000,300
SpecV 15,750,000
S-Tec GT-R (ST1) 23,000,000 (approx)

You can see that the smallest of options is going to bump that Spec-M price over the Spec-V and we still don’t have a list of hardware inclusions in the Spec-M to justify it. What we do know is:

  • The official name for the Spec-M is not final, whether it is called the Spec-M at launch is yet to be decided
  • Official announcement of the Spec-M is scheduled for 18th October 2010
  • Official launch will take place at Nissan HQ in Yokohama on 17th November 2010
  • One new exclusive body color – Ultimate Opal White (QAG color code)

  • Interior color choices are wild, see the below list of color choices.

Interior Color Choices for Spec-M:
Lower Section:

  • Muelheim Brown
  • GT Black
  • R-Red
  • Ruhr White
  • Caramel Beige
  • Espresso Brown
  • Cointreau Orange
  • Aqua Gray
  • Shadow Gray
  • Sakura

Upper Section:

  • Muelheim Brown
  • GT Black
  • R-Red
  • Ruhr White

Stiching Colors:

  • Brown
  • Black
  • Red
  • White
  • Gray
  • Beige

As mentioned above, with the Spec-M will launch with a new color, Ultimate Opal White (a 525,000 yen option btw) but you can get one in any of the following body colors:

  • Ultimate Metal silver (KAB)
  • Ultimate Opal White (QAG)
  • Nebula Opal Black (GAG)
  • Vibrant Red (A54)
  • Dark Metal Gray (KAD)
  • Aurora Flare Blue Pearl (RAY)

As far as option packages go, we don’t have all the details there, suffice to say interior color options are included in the Spec-M price tag as well as a BOSE sound system. However three levels of additional upgrade BOSE sound systems are available at a price tag of approximately 1,200,000 yen.

So that’s got you up to date with the Spec-M details. We’ll be keeping our ear to the ground for more as it comes in but I for one am keen to see how a Sakura colored interior will look in a GT-R…

Love the new updates, bumper is ok, but all the upgrades make up for it.

How much of a hit do you think 10's will take after the release?

I am seriously tempted to jump ship but like others mentioned the r36 maybe 2-3 years out,

do you think most likely the mods will be able to just bolt up to the 2012?

im  interested  in that too.. so  far there really isnt anything ive  read that  makes me think  a 09-11   aftermarket   exhaust or midpipe wouldnt bolt up. the diffuser is different but i dont see it  being different in a way that would interfere with most exhausts...   besides a rumor that the turbos are different ( not confirmed yet)  i think  everything else is the same.. so  until  shown otherwise im gonna say most likely

Any word on what models the US will see? There is a lot of models listed here, and all the US has had so far is Base and Premium.
