These are the latest spy shots of Nissan’s special-edition Spec-M version of the GT-R.
It is one of two revised variants of the car that have been testing at the Nürburgring in recent weeks.
The Spec-M seen here — a more luxurious version of Nissan’s Porsche 911 Turbo rival, featuring plusher fabrics and more cushioning in the seats — has been joined at the classic German venue by a Cup car that incorporates key features from the ultra-expensive Spec-V.
The Cup gets a carbonfibre rear wing, the Spec-V’s carbon-ceramic brakes, and lighter body panels and wheels.
It’s likely to be Nissan’s choice as the GT-R attempts to win back Nordschleife bragging rights from the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which recently posted a lap of 7min 18sec at the venue.
This particular Spec-M test car reveals that the revised GT-R gets LED running lights incorporated into a ‘triple wave’ front bumper, and a new front grille.
