First Impressions: 2014 GTR Amber Red Interior Package



I finally got to spend some time checking out the Optional Amber Red Interior for the 2014 GTR. I must say I'm a fan. In person it isn't really like a red-red at all is sort of like a terra cotta clay color. On a white GT-R like the combo I got to see. It really has this luxury high end feel to it. My favorite part is the new seat pattern within the seat itself. I would like to see these eventually adopted to the regular premium black seats as well at some point in the future.

The seat itself feels about the same as far as side bolstering except the leather feels "a little more plush" almost like its not pulled as tight as the regular premium seat. One thing I noticed was in pictures the thread stitching on the red almost looked like it was yellow but in person its like a elegant rose cherry blossom look to it.

Even at the $4K price tag I think anyone in the market for a 2014 Premium should at least consider opting for this interior especially if you want a white black or gray car as those 3 colors will go wonderfully with it. White with the red has this classic JDM feel to it though. I'm biased toward everything looking like its off a race car from carbon this to recaro that and in the pictures when this first came out I thought it's nice but not my taste.

After seeing it in person if I was in the market for a premium GT-R I would definitely consider this for myself probably in gunmetal as i think that combo would offer a great contrast. There have been a lot of critics of the interior and the ones I had myself where for the most part addressed in the DBA-R35 update. Although will never live of to some interior connoisseurs, this interior really does show an effort to offer the customera higher end experience.



These first pics give it almost an orange hue to it but that is not really accurate. It's like a deep clay color almost like high end pottery.

Damn...that's probalby the one I was starting to work a deal on but then decided to wait for 2015 for the possible exerior changes. There was only one white/red leather in the country a few weeks ago when I was shopping. I can't wait to see the metalic grey/red.

I agree 100%. I first thought that these seats were ugly from pictures but in person I fell in love with this interior package. My only regret for jumping into the GT-R in 2013 is that I don't get these seats.

im in LOVE !! probably gona sit it out until 2015 though for another GT-R as my daily :bounce:
Like the pattern of the full leather seats, but they look less grippy for the track. Not sure I'd spend the $4k either, but nonetheless, they look good.
MC,

Did you get a chance to feel the thickness of the steering wheel. It seems thicker then current ones from the photos.

To me it seemed the exact same. The two tone might effect cause it to visually look different in pics. Like i said the seats "felt" the same as the regular premiums aswell. The side bolsters were not larger like the Black Edition. The pattern itself was very nice and had a firm feel to it. I wouldnt think there would be a noticeable feeling of slipping on the track though at all. The only differences i noticed is there were places right where the outside of your thighs would be on the driver side the leather was a little more wrinkled than most of the premiums (which are wrinkled there aswell) ive seen. it sort of gave the effect the leather was thicker and plush but im pretty sure it was how it was laid on the seat.Posted Image

Nice, looks really good
Since it is not a real red be sure to NOT get this if you get any color other than black or white...

Nissan(in the US) has made it unavailable on a red or blue car. All the others i think would be fine only with the super silver you are buying yourself one hell of an expensive premium edition GTR
it looks really nice, the pattern in the seats kinda reminds me of a ferrari type of seat...
Got to sit in one today. El centro Cali of all places! Lol. Was really nice, tho I'm a black interior kinda guy.
nice option.
I love this.
