Nissan revealed the first details on the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec-V at the beginning of January, and now here are the first shots of the car in real life. This factory tuned GT-R was spotted at a Tokyo area dealership.

With the shine from the paintwork we can see the multi-layered look that the SpecV’s exclusive color Ultimate Black Opal really puts out. No doubt this will become the new favorite color of fanboys once Maaco gets its hands on this shade of shimmering black.

The GT-R SpecV gets a new high gear boost control device, which momentarily increases boost of the engine’s twin turbochargers for greater torque in the intermediate-to-high speed ranges for better acceleration. Other modifications include a titanium-coated exhaust system and carbon-ceramic brakes. We don’t know how these improvements translate to the performance numbers yet, but when we know more, we’ll pass it along.

Although this car is already on the showroom floor (and probably already sold,) sales don’t officially begin in Japan until February 2nd. Pricing starts at 15,750,000 yen (about $175,000 at direct current rates). The car will be sold only through seven specially equipped Japanese dealers. There is no word yet if Nissan is preparing any extra outlets in the U.S to handle the SpecV.
