Just because the Nissan GT-R already has a wicked nickname - Godzilla! - it doesn’t mean that there’s no more room for improvement. After all, for all his considerable might and flame-spewing abilities, the real Godzilla still couldn’t spread lift off of the ground if his life depended on it.

So it’s the same with the GT-R. It’s already pretty awesome in its own right, but if you had a chance to give it more tweaks, you wouldn’t even hesitate to do so. That’s where the GT-R Spec V comes along and Auto Express was lucky enough to put it through the ringer.

Looking at how they managed to run the carbon fiber-loaded GT-R - it’s new additions include a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber grille, and carbon fiber brake ducts - it’s safe to say that when you think of this GT-R as an improved version of the standard model, well that’s quite a massive understatement. Blasting off from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and running a slalom at 74.7 mph? Yeah, quite an understatement, indeed.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
