2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition

Nissan is introducing six different versions of the GT-R for 2012. These versions include: "Pure Edition," "Black Edition," "Premium Edition," "SpecV," ClubTrack," and "EGOIST." The "Black Edition" is one of the best. Awesome styling ques like an enlarged fascia and grille openings, a newly refreshed front fascia with aggressive double rectifier fins, and Hyper Daylight and high intensity white-color LED lights. The back of the GT-R gets a new rear bumper air outlet, a dry carbon rear spoiler, and a newly designed tailpipe finisher with enlarged diameter, all created to provide this monster with a lower center of gravity.

The biggest modification is under the hood. A revised version of the VR38DETT 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo engine and 6 speed dual clutch transmission is being used. Nissan has revised the valve-timing, air/fuel mix ratio, and cranking up the boost, power is up from 475hp to 530hp at 6,400rpm, whilst torque jumps 24Nm to 612Nm at 3,200 - 6,000rpm. That's a significant jump in power from the previous model year.

In the States, the new GT-R will go on sale in February 2011 with prices starting at $89,950 for the Premium model and $95,100 for the Black Edition.
