With sales slated to start this fall, the Special Edition of the 545-horsepower GT-R tacks $6,000 on to the $105,590 price of a GT-R Premium. The hand-applied Midnight Opal paint isn't the only special item, though. Forged RAYS wheels are included in a ten-spoke design that's never before made it to American shores, and there's a dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler, similar in design and appearance to the one found on the GT-R Black and Track Editions. Finally, a gold-plated plaque has been fitted to single out the GT-R Special Edition from the very fast herd.
US sales of the GT-R SE are slated to begin in September. Scroll down for the official press blast.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Following today's global announcement of a new limited production 2014 Nissan GT-R Special Edition package with a hand-painted "Midnight Opal" exterior, Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today announced United States pricing for the car of $105,590 USD, a $6,000 USD increase over the GT-R Premium model M.S.R.P.* Half of the 100 total units available worldwide will be available in the U.S. Sales are scheduled to begin in September through certified U.S. Nissan GT-R dealers.
Highlighting the 2014 Nissan GT-R Special Edition package's unique features is the new Midnight Opal exterior paint, with each coat applied by hand. The highly reflective paint treatment changes appearance slightly from a deep purple to a deep blue depending on light conditions and viewing angle.
In addition to the custom paint, GT-R Special Editions also feature a never before offered in the U.S. hyper-titanium colored coating on the RAYS® forged lightweight wheels, a dry carbon fiber rear spoiler** similar to that utilized on the GT-R Black and GT-R Track Editions, and a gold-plated serialized plaque of authenticity located in the engine compartment.
Based on the GT-R Premium model, the new GT-R Special Edition comes with Nissan's advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 rated at 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque (hand assembled in a special clean room) and exclusive Premium Midship platform that enables the use of the dynamic independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system. Total vehicle adjustability is provided by set-up switches located in the center of the instrument panel, enabling the driver to adjust transmission, shock absorbers and the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC-R) among three settings – Normal, Special or R.
The interior features sculpted performance bucket seats and a cockpit-style instrument panel with a large center-mounted tachometer and multi-function display – which includes mechanical and driving information, as well as an on-board driving recorder. A specially designed 11-speaker Bose® sound system with speakers mounted in rigid aluminum die cast panels is standard.
The 2014 Nissan GT-R is also available in GT-R Premium, GT-R Black Edition and limited production 2-seat GT-R Track Edition***. For more information on the 2014 Nissan GT-R lineup, please see NissanNews.com.
