The first image of the revised 2012 Nissan GT-R has leaked onto the internet.

The image, leaked to Nissan GT-R fan site gtrblog.com, reveals subtle styling changes, including the addition of LED daytime running lights (previously seen in spy pictures), modifications to the front grille and front bumper and a new rear diffuser, said to increase downforce by 10 per cent.

The launch of the revised GT-R is expected to coincide with the official unveiling of the luxurious Spec-M variant. Reports from Japan suggest the car will officially be confirmed on 18 October and revealed at Nissan's Yokohama headquarters on 17 November.

Styling changes are also expected for the hardcore Spec-V variant to further differentiate it from the rest of the range.

Many of the changes are designed to boost the GT-R's aerodynamic efficiency and the changes are said to reduce its drag coefficient from 0.272 to 0.268.

The pictures also reveal the GT-R will get new lightweight forged aluminium alloy wheels, each expected to be 3kg lighter. Two new colour schemes are expected to be offered: Aurora Flare Blue Pearl and Nebula Opal Black.

Both power and torque from the standard GT-R's twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 are expected to be increased, too.

The Nissan GT-R is not a cheap car, but it’s better value for money than cars that are seemingly as fast
