YOKOHAMA, Japan - Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today unveiled the new Japan-market GT-R. The model line-up includes two limited grades, the GT-R Premium Edition T-spec and GT-R Track Edition Engineered by NISMO T-spec. All are scheduled to go on sale in the second half of October.

The two T-spec limited editions are specially equipped with exclusive carbon ceramic brakes, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, an exclusive engine cover, and an exclusive badge for front and rear. A total of 100 units of the limited-edition models are planned for sale, with successful purchasers selected by lot.

Two new body colors, Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade, have been added to the T-spec options. Midnight Purple is an advanced version of the color used on previous generations of GT-Rs and is inspired by color-shifting of the aurora borealis. Millennium Jade exudes sophistication and conveys a quiet, yet powerful presence.

The name T-spec represents the GT-R's philosophy of leading and shaping the times and is inspired by the words trend and traction. As a trend maker, the GT-R is created to always be ahead of the times, and the car's ability to drive with robust grip - a key characteristic engineers have always worked hard on - make it a traction master.

The Nissan GT-R Premium Edition T-spec also has an exclusive interior design, Rays forged alloy wheels (bronze), and suspension that takes advantage of weight reductions below the springs. An expanded wheel-rim width has increased tire rigidity, enabling smooth and sensitive handling.

Developed with a focus on enhanced driving performance, the GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO T-spec is specially equipped with an exclusive carbon-fiber roof and trunk lid. GT-R Track Edition engineered by NISMO is a grade based on the standard model enhanced with NISMO technology.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nissan today announced a special, limited production 2021 GT-R "T-spec" edition, which will be available in two iconic body colors and with a range of upgraded features.

Slotting in above the GT-R Premium grade, the new, limited-volume GT-R T-spec adds wider front fenders from the previous Track Edition, gold-painted RAYS® forged aluminum-alloy wheels and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Body-colored door mirrors, black hood ducts and T-spec badging complete the exterior changes. Also added are carbon ceramic brakes with brake air guides from the GT-R NISMO.

Most notable about the new GT-R T-spec are the two exclusive exterior colors - Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple. Millennium Jade was previously offered on the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür, one of the rarest GT-Rs ever. With the name inspired by the Nürburgring racetrack, only 718 V-Spec II Nür units were produced - with just 156 carrying the Millennium Jade color. This is the first time this color will be offered on a GT-R in the U.S. market.

The new Midnight Purple is a modern interpretation of the Midnight Purple III from the R34 V-Spec, which was limited to 132 units, and the 2014 special edition Midnight Opal R35 GT-R that was limited to only 100 units worldwide (50 in the U.S.)

The T-spec interior includes a special "Mori Green" interior color, premium semi-aniline leather-appointed seating with pearl suede accents, quilted Alcantara® headliner and additional T-spec badging.

Under the hood, GT-R T-spec customers will find the legendary, hand-assembled twin-turbo VR38DETT 3.8-liter V6 engine, rated at 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. The refined powerplant is backed by an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission with GT-R's unique independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system.

The 2021 GT-R T-spec joins the previously announced GT-R NISMO Special Edition with a very limited number of models available for sale in North America this winter. Pricing for the GT-R T-spec will be $138,490
