V-Spec Released!

Recommended Posts

http://www.caradvice.com.au/20394/2009-nis...specv-unveiled/

 

Further modifications include a titanium-coated exhaust system and carbon-ceramic brakes which were spied earlier this year on a prototype at the Nürburgring for ultimate stopping performance.

 

Rather than focussing on raw power, Nissan has instead concentrated on refining the handling of the new SpecV, equipping the car with Nismo-spec forged aluminium wheels as standard to reduce unsprung weight.

* Fully Optioned: 16,978,500 yen excluding tax

 

 

 

AFAIK the release really hasnt told us anything new, although its pretty typical of what u expect of a V-spec, i was hoping for something more, im just hoping 2 things, 1 that nissan hasnt revealed the true improvements of the spec-v and that on the track it will be quite a bit faster, and 2 that there will be a much more track orientated spec in the near future.

^^^ i think what he is trying to say is they look cock... which i agree with aswell. they are functional being light weight etc but they could have put more thought into the design of em.

 

 

I was pretty stunned to see just exactly how un epic the Spec V was compared to the stocko version plus its another $70k or so more expensive for not alot extra, those brakes are sick and all but the beauty of having a having a good friend of mine that works at Nissan means he comes across some pretty interesting info... such as a complete breake service costing almost $30k!

 

I had the pleasure of seeing Mark Berry's RGM R35 here at the Townsville hill climbs and yes it was fairly fast and had the HKS 570 kit on it but my god was it a disapointment. Sounded like sewing machine with and exhaust on it and it wasn't even the fastest car there which was suprising aswell but its just not my cup of tea. A local guy that had just finished building up his epic track spec R32 GTR with dry sump fully built 26 and hks gtrs twins, all the good gear went into it and repainted R33 GTR midnight purple. Very Very tough car and just amazing to watch, great sound. i rather enjoyed watching that car compared to the 35 GTR and hey with standard brakes just up graded pads and tein super street coilovers and no suspension arms it was only 3 or so seconds off the 35...

 

R35 great car technologically, but i'd rather spend $100k on my 33 GTR..
