Nissan GT-R T-spec comes with a Godzilla green interior

It seems like pretty late in the year to unveil a model for 2021, but Nissan has just released a new twist on its GT-R supercar. Called the T-Spec, it is a limited production variant from Godzilla that is positioned above the GT-R premium model. It comes in a few retro colors from the GT-R's extensive history, as well as a green interior that is frankly great.
While the T-Spec Soldiers are out and about with the same 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 that the GT-R has had since its 2017 update, the car has a number of upgrades to get it from the standard GT-R. For one, the front fenders are wider units that were last seen in the Track Edition 2020. Behind it lurk brake air ducts and carbon-ceramic rotors from the harder GT-R Nismo. A carbon fiber rear spoiler rounds out the changes that would affect performance.
You can identify the T-Spec cars by their black hood ducts, color-matched mirrors, and 20-inch forged aluminum alloy rays finished in an exclusive T-Spec car gold. Of course, there are badges on the radiator grille, rear, center console and door sills.
As a tribute to its predecessors, the T-Spec is available in two colors that are not available on smaller GT-Rs, Midnight Purple and Millennium Jade. The former was introduced on the Skyline GT-R 1995-98, known by its chassis code as the R33 generation. Color variations were brought back twice for the following R34 generation, each as a limited edition.
Millennium Jade, on the other hand, was exclusive to the 2002 Nür edition, named after the Nürburgring, where Nissan tested the GT-Rs (and held a long-standing lap record for production cars) long before any automaker and their mother compared the times. The Nür cars were the last Skyline GT-Rs until the R35 hit the market in 2008.
Inside, Nissan introduces a new color called Mori Green which is awesome. The automotive empire desperately needs more green interiors resembling my parents' Chevy land yacht from the early 1970s, and the kid is supplying that cabin. A woody green decorates the semi-aniline leather seats, while the soft-touch surfaces on the dashboard give it a grayer look. A unique quilted headliner rounds off the T-Spec differences in the interior.
Oddly enough, the Nissan USA press release describes it as the 2021 model year while Nissan Japan describes it as the 2022 model year. We're not sure if this is a typo or if it says something more sinister about the future of the US GT-R market. After all, the GT-R should have a hard production stop sometime next year, after which a redesign could bow. We've contacted Nissan for clarification and will update the article as we learn more.
In Japan, the T specification is limited to 100 cars, and potential customers are determined by lottery. Nissan hasn't said how many will be sold in the US other than that it is a limited production vehicle with "very limited" numbers to be made available. The GT-R T spec will cost $ 140,285 including a $ 1,795 target fee when it goes on sale this winter along with the previously announced $ 217,485 GT-R Nismo Special Edition.
