Godzilla is on its way back to America, only this time it’s not the reptilian monster we’re talking about but the 2011 Nissan GT-R.

Slightly modified with a number or performance improvements from its 2010 brethren, the 2011 GT-R Premium – if you must know, the base model has already been discontinued - is headed to the US with a price tag of $84,060.

As far as the 2011 Nissan GT-R Premium is concerned, a number of changes were given to the car, with the notable ones being a re-tuned suspension and strengthened rear bushings that enhance ride comfort without compromising performance handling, a slightly darker color tone of the center caps on the wheels, the addition of double clear coat paint to the fascias, modified rear cooling ducts underneath the body, and the standardization of the automatic on/off headlights.

Continued after the jump.

Also among the features that have been included in the 2011 GT-R Premium include a premium near black wheel finish, rear cooling ducts that assist in improving cooling performance around the rear floor area, the aforementioned auto on/off head lights, speed-sensitive windshield wipers, a USB iPod interface, Bluetooth streaming audio, XM NavWeather and XM NavTraffic capabilities.

While we have yet to get a confirmation from Nissan, rumors are circulating that only 315 of these 2011 GT-R’s would make its way to the US meaning that – in the event that this is true – it’s going to be a mad dash for GT-R loyalists to scoop up a model before they run out, which, in this case, wouldn’t be too long.

Hey nic can’t you read it? it says that 315 is limited for US only.

One of the things that I hate about limited editions is that it doesn’t reach all markets of the world. Mostly it is just either Japan, Europe or US. The three countries with most known production of great cars.

well that’s so few, but i guess limiting the GT-R to US is just reasonable, besides GT-R is considered as an illegal car in US due to it’s speed and performance.
