Nissan has unveiled the 2014 GT-R Special Edition. Finished in Midnight Opal paint, the GT-R SE will be limited to just 100 units worldwide, with 50 earmarked for the US.

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.

Nissan Announces U.S. Pricing for 2014 GT-R Special Edition with Unique "Midnight Opal" Exterior Color

Just 50 units available in the United States, 100 units worldwide
Sales begin this fall
Priced at $6,000 USD above GT-R Premium Edition
Also includes unique wheel color, serialized plaque, carbon fiber spoiler



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.

      Looks like the same purple that was available on older Skyline GT-R's. I wonder if it's the same color? 6K seems like a hefty premium though.

        It's close, but it looks like it has a orange/gold to purple color shift rather than the blue to purple color shift the Midnight Purple the R34 had, giving the R35 an overall warmer tone than the R34.

      Pretty paint, but 6k extra??? I keep thinking this car has awesome performance, but badly needs restyled. It doesn't look very special for $100k and actually is pretty ungainly.

        Worth and retail are two different things. Nissan is probably getting them for 20% of retail tops.

        $6k for special paint on a $105k car? Could be worse. - BMW fan.

      "Hey, we know there's absolutely no exclusivity or any speciality in arriving at the same showroom where they sell Leafs, Sentras, Altimas, and Pathfinders to buy these cars but hey, give us another $6k and we'll slap on some of the extra sets of RAYS we ordered too much of!"

        An extra $6k for a limited edition of a $100k+ car sounds about right, if not a little on the cheap side. It's less to do with the real value added to the car (cost of wheels, paint, CF wing and metal plaque) and more about just having a limited edition version of the car. If a 5.7% price premium is shocking, I wouldn't suggest looking into special editions of European cars.

          Josh, I'm sure there are many more reasons that you're an idiot beyond what you post on Autoblog, but that's what we have to work with, so let me attempt to explain to your logic is all over the place. You did allude to the fact that there is no exclusivity to a mainstream manufacturer's supercar. Your response to the Ford GT example is unrelated to your point about exclusivity when buying. They stopped making Ford GTs after 1 year. Also, GT-Rs don't depreciate quickly either. But there are way more GT-Rs than Ford GTs, as it is currently in production... So demand is not cut off from supply... Which would yield appreciation. If all your opinions of cars are based on Fast & Furious movies, I feel bad for your parents having to admit you're their child.

          What about the Ford GT? Point out an '09 - '10 R35 on ebay thats worth more now than its sticker price brand new and I'll up-rate your comment. That is if you can find one that doesn't have sub-30 yr old 2nd or 3rd owners with that SICK EXHAUST YO! Bottom line is who the hell was the target customer of these cars? At least Ford knew who the GT's were. I said it before, I'll say it again - tell me why I'd buy this supposed limited edition with take off RAYS over a CPO 911 Turbo again?

      That looks like some trick paint. I wish more manufacturers would offer interesting paint options.

      You could have 50 GTR's converge at one auto show and if this is the only unit, representing this color, you'd find the biggest flock of admirers at this one. The paint will glisten likes stars and changes hue depending on the light. If you can't afford the color price bump, you won't be able to afford the brakes.
