A new special edition of the Nissan GT-R, finished in a unique Midnight Opal paint colour, has been revealed.

Limited to 100 units globally, the Nissan GT-R Midnight Opal Special Edition’s paint is applied by hand and alters in colour depending on light and viewing angle.

Joined by a carbonfibre rear spoiler, a gold build plate and forged aluminium wheels featuring a hyper-titanium coating, the limited model leaves the standard car’s 404kW/628Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 powerplant untouched.

An identical Midnight purple shade has been seen on the GT-R before, with both the R33 and R34 Skyline GT-Rs featuring the hue in past years.

On sale in the US from September – when 50 cars will be up for grabs – the Midnight Opal Special Edition commands a US$6000 ($6500) premium over the standard 2014 GT-R.

While Nissan Australia has no plans to introduce the model locally, the Nissan GT-R Black Edition went on sale last month priced at $182,500 before on-road costs, an $11,700 premium over the standard model.

    the GTR is a euro car renualt own nissan and all the engine and tech from europe. not rough and slow japanese v6

      Can you point out where the European use of this engine & drivetrain is? No?

      Not quite. Nissan own 15% of Renault and Renault owns 44.4% of Nissan.

      The GTR however is designed in Japan. Nissan don’t need Renault telling them how to make a fast v6 car, as seen in the R-series cars prior to the R35.

      However, Renault do indeed use parts of the GTR in their cars, such as the paddle shifters in Renaults dual-clutch clio RS.

        Other ‘R’ series GT-Rs are not V6, they are inline 6 since the ’60s

        Such a shame for the Renault affiliation.

        Nissan has gone backward where as Renault has benefited tremendously.

  • EUboi

    • Max

      You have just spectacularly failed. R35 GT-R uses a VR38DETT engine, NOT the VQ thats used in 350Z and 370Z. Its rough? Try putting out the power/torque that it does while being rough.
