More details on the 2012 Nissan GT-R

Last week, the guys from GT-R Blog brought the first details of the 2012 Nissan GT-R . Today they are offering new details on the future sports car, but this time, the details surround the Spec-M version.

According to the blog, the R35 GT-R “Gentleman’s Edition” will be launched as the Nissan GT-R Egoist on the Japanese market. We have no idea why they would do this, but the name does sound pretty cool. However, this nomenclature will only be used on the Japanese market, the other markets will be keeping the usual Spec-M version.

The current Nissan GT-R develops a total of 520 HP, but the 2012 GT-R Egoist is rumored to be boasting an output of 540 HP. Add that black exterior paint and the gold wheels, and you have the perfect recipe for an amazing sports car!

The 2012 Nissan GT-R will come with a modified front bumper, rear diffuse, and rear underspoiler, offering 10% more downforce. There will also be modifications made to the suspensions, brakes, wheels, and tires.

I think for all the super cars, GT-R has the most humble beginning. Originally, the GTR didn’t have a good speed performance but due to criticism, engineers made the GTR even better, and now it’s called the "Baddest Supercar in Asia"! 

The car is making an appearance in the new animated movie, and will also appear on a television show that is promoting the film, but that’s it.

Those updates are all appreciated, but I don’t see how people can take this car seriously until the transmission and electrical concerns have been taken care of.
