Nissan GT-R Vspec - AutoExpress - 7:25 target

From AutoExpress

"While the standard GT-R produces 473bhp, the range-topper is tipped to deliver a huge 550bhp from its twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6. The 16 per cent power boost will be matched by a substantial 150kg weight reduction to make the V-Spec one of the most hardcore supercars on the planet."
"And the modifications won’t stop with performance upgrades – the body will get an aerodynamic make-over, too"
"Nissan has two very specific targets for the thrilling newcomer. Firstly, its engineers are desperate to complete a lap at Germany’s Nürburgring in less than seven minutes and 25 seconds, to take the circuit record.

And they are also keen to topple Porsche’s 911 GT2 and GT3 from the top of performance trackday wish lists"

They say about a 20,000 pound premium on top of the price in the UK. That probably will translate to about a $100,000 Vspec model. If people thought a $70,000 Nissan was hard to swallow, a $100,000 should really perk some people up. This article does not mention it, but there will also be suspension changes.
