Click the image above for more shots of the rumored Nissan GT-R V-Spec.

Shots of a track-modified Nissan GT-R have been making the rounds on the web and they may foretell the future revival of a V-Spec version of Godzilla.

The bare-bones GT-R is sporting a full roll cage, a modified front bumper to decrease engine temps and a lower ride height that drops the coupe over a set of Volk TE-37s on track-friendly rubber.

The rumors we've heard peg the V-Spec coming to market sometime in 2009, but precisely what modifications will be made is still up in the air.

      this looks like a Super Taikyu car, and according to 2009gtr.com, it is, also the site has better pics and close ups of the missing quad pipes and the open grill, it looks nice but dont be suprised if it is not V-spec we all are looking for

      Love the car but lighter weight is definitely needed. 3800 lbs is really tipping the scales

      I wonder how Porsche and Corvette will compare to this car. Consinder the base Vette is now 436 HP and 424 Lbs of TQ running the 0-60 in 4. Seconds in most tests, and the Z06 is stupid fast, and the new ZR1 coming, this thing has to be on a diet to hold on to its hype if what they say about it is true.
      I can see it getting spanked by the Porches and Vettes easily, despite all the hype

      The term would be lightER weight GT-R.

      It seems unlikely this car has enough mods to get down to be considered a light weight car.

      It was made by Mr. Kazutoshi Mizuno of CVE&CPS of new style GT-R. However, it is said that the model to which the purpose of use was limited considerably takes out --


      Vspec." which is spoken about does not come out."

      It is not "V spec." but the "spec. V."
      A reason is a thing that there is a possibility of conflicting with trademark registration overseas

      If the Mizuno utterance about this the "spec. V" is summarized --

      1. Price is Higher than GT-R
        Announced this Time Millions of Yen
      2. Number is Acquirable.
      3.There is no comfortable equipment of sound isolation    equipment etc.

      roll cage eh?

      Well if a roll cage is standard issue I doubt the car will be coming to the US. A good example the GT3 RS has an optional roll cage that is not allowed here in the US by the DOT

      Best. Rims. Ever.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Well maybe not the ones on that GTR, but I'll take mine in bronze, thanks.

      I agree with spdracerut, i think its for grand am testing, the weight loss and cage seem too aggressive for a streetable car (missing half the rear bumper) and if those are te-37 wheels, the offset is poo poo.

      sweet, now if only I had $100K laying around
