MELBOURNE, Australia (27 May 2013) – Nissan has confirmed that a new edition of the all-conquering GT-R will be available in Australia from next month with the introduction of the Nissan GT-R Black Edition to the Australian market.
The Black Edition sees the addition of skilled craftsmanship to the already breathtaking performance of the GT-R, with striking features such as an impressive carbon fibre rear spoiler and red and black interior treatment.
Specially-commissioned Recaro front seats, featuring red leather-accented trim, offer ergonomic support and comfort for both track days and the daily commute.
Metallic black forged alloy 20-inch RAYS six spoke wheels are super-lightweight to reduce unsprung weight, while also featuring knurled beads to help prevent tyres moving on rims under hard acceleration.
