For unknown reasons, Nissan has delayed the Japanese release of the Spev-V GT-R. But to satisfy the appetites of power hungry gear heads, Nissan has decided to release the GT-R “Evolution”, which will feature several of the Nismo parts that were developed for the race-prepped version of the GT-R that ran in the Tokachi 24 Hour Endurance Race. How much more the “Evolution” model will cost is still unknown, as are the upgraded parts that will be fitted to it. More on info on this as it becomes available.

Road & Track got the inside scoop on the Spec V’s offical numbers, so I figured I’d post them up for you all. Here’s what we’re looking at:
– Power increased to an advertised 520 bhp (at 6500 rpm) and 440 lb.-ft. of torque peaking from 3200–5200 rpm, but as we know, when a Spec V gets put on the dyno, it’ll probably turn out to be much more than that.
– Extensive use of carbon fiber will drop about 200 lbs, putting the curb weight at 3,615 lbs.
– It’s only going to have two seats, not four.
– Subtle exterior changes like different wheels and tweaked aero bits.
– Official acceleration stats haven’t been released, but it’ll get to 60mph faster that 3.5 seconds and should run a quarter mile around 11.0 seconds flat.
– Nurburgring times will be sub-7:29 seconds. Early estimates put it at the 7:25 mark.
– Purchase price approaching $130,000: Nearly twice what a standard GT-R costs.
