Recently, Nissan had announced that it will come out with a special edition of the 2014 GT-R dubbed Midnight Opal. However, no further details were provided at that time. Now the company has more information for potential customers, including the release date and pricing. For starters, only 100 units will be produced worldwide, with 50 of them coming to the US. This means that the likelihood of getting one is slim, but you can inquire with a Nissan Dealership Cherry Hill area in order to be sure.
Sales for the car will being this fall and it will be priced at $105,590, $6,000 more than the current GT-R Premium model. Like the Premium, this GT-R will feature a 3.8 liter twin turbo V6 engine capable of developing 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque. However, the car will also have a special Premium Midship platform that will allow it to use the dynamic independent transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system. Moreover, the center panel will feature switches that allow the driver to easily select one of three settings – Normal, Special and R. Each one will come with adjustments made to the shock absorbers, transmission and the Vehicle Dynamic Control.
However, the unique feature that makes this special edition stand out is the new hand coated Midnight Opal exterior paint job. The pain treatment is very reflective which will allow the car to change color depending on the lighting conditions, ranging from a deep purple to a deep blue. In addition to that, the GT-R will also have lightweight wheels color coated in hyper-titanium, a first for the US, as well as a carbon fiber rear spoiler and a gold-plated plaque with the serial number in the engine compartment as a proof of authenticity.
