Nissan GT-R Cup Car , N1 , Super Taikyu , Mspec


Road and Track Magazine is reporting that the 2012 Nissan GT-R will be introduced in October of this year with 520 hp.   In the blog post, they are also reporting on the MSpec, and Cup Car GT-R.

The Cup Car is reported to have upgraded brakes, suspension, wheels, and carbon fiber panels. The price is suspected to be $120,000- $150,000 with no reports of it coming to the US.   The MSpec is supposed to be a more customizable version of the Nissan GT-R, with 30 copies being produced at a price around $210,000.

Along the same lines, GT-R blog is reporting that the Super Taikyu version of the R35 GT-R has been testing at Fuji Speedway. In the pictures, carbon fiber parts are visible, along with SpecV wheels, a good amount of negative camber, and it shows a few different variations on the hood design.  In the past, the N1 version of the Nissan GT-R was used for Super Taikyu,an endurance race series in Japan.

Nismo Omori Factory, Nova Engineering, and Nordring are working on a “Club Track” version of the R35. The club track version, has a roll cage, carbon fiber seats, and 20” slicks.


Are these two cars, all one in the same ?  Club track and Cup Car ?  Either way, it looks like neither, none of them would make it to the US.

It is starting to get tasty now, cup car is my choice. Who cares if it doesn't come here as long as we can buy the parts. I don't want any luxuries in my GTR, that's what Lexus are for.
