Porsche’s victory around the Nurburgring may be short lived, with details slowly emerging on the flagship V-Spec edition of the potent Nissan GT-R.

While the standard GT-R produces 353kW, the power of the V-Spec edition is expected to tip the 410kW mark representing a 16 percent increase matched by a not insubstantial 150kg weight loss.

The GT-R may slice through the air with its highly efficient aerokit, however the V-Spec will enhance these qualities for greater downforce and stability at high speeds.

Nissan is not modest when it cites its goals for the V-Spec model, attempting to lap the Nurburgring in under 7:25.00 to take the circuit record and topple the 911 GT2.

The extra performance will however come at a premium, where the V-Spec will attract in excess of 36 percent more than the sticker price of a standard GT-R.
