Nissan will add a new Black Edition to its giant-killing GT-R lineup next month, sitting atop the local range with a price tag of $182,500.
Joining the existing $170,800 Premium and $5000 greater luxury option, the new Black Edition is distinguished visually by its 20 inch Rays forged wheels and carbon fibre rear spoiler.These Nismo parts-bin exterior details are shared with the track-focused Nissan GT-R Spec V that was offered in Japan in 2009, and bring a marginal weight reduction over existing items.
On the inside, the Black Edition features specific Recaro front seats with red leather accents that continue on the steering wheel, gear selector, and door trims.
“The GT-R Black Edition has already proved popular in other markets, so we are pleased to introduce this exciting model to Australia,” Nissan Australia’s Managing Director and CEO William Peffer said.
The Black Edition is otherwise identical to the existing revised-for-2013 GT-R, including its 404kW/628Nm outputs, and its capability to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.7 seconds.
