These spy pictures reveal Nissan is planning some subtle styling upgrades for its GT-R flagship.
The light disguise at the front covers up minor changes to the front bumper, including wider horizontal air intakes.
At the rear the GT-R gets a new integrated diffuser, as well as tweaks to the rear bumper and new quad exhaust tips.
Our spy photographer said the model spied here is the new Spec M variant, a softer riding version of the GT-R conceived as a grand tourer. The Spec M is expected to be the first model to get the styling upgrades in 2011/12, although the standard GT-R and Spec V models will also get the changes.
The Spec M was tipped for launch at the Tokyo motor show last year but never materialised. Little is on record from Nissan about the Spec M, asides from the fact its interior will be more luxurious, and less sports orientated than the other two models in the range featuring higher quality materials, too.
It will also get revised suspension geometry for a softer ride, although its V6 engine is expected to remain stock. Spec M-exclusive exterior colours are also expected to be offered.
The Spec M is likely to be offered as a limited edition mode, priced between the Spec V and standard GT-R at around £100,000.
