2021 Nissan GT-R “T-Spec” Edition

Published By

Continuing the legacy of the iconic Skyline would be intimidating to most automakers. Nissan fearlessly hit the nail on the head with the modern GT-R but that doesn’t seem to be slowing their ambition down. 

The 2021 Nissan GT-R “T-spec” Edition slides in above the Premium edition of the same car, making it among the best of the best. There really is only one GT-R above this trim level, the NISMO edition.

The all-new limited-edition T-spec GT-R is available in two exclusive colors. Choose from Millennium Jade or Midnight Purple. Long time fans and Skyline enthusiasts will remember these two colors from the R34 era.

In case you are new to the Skyline heritage, Millennium Jade is the color of one of the rarest versions of the car in existence. It was originally available on the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür but now you can get Millennium Jade on the all-new T-spec.

As for Midnight Purple, it is a modern interpretation of Midnight Purple III. This color was originally on the R34 V-Spec.

Under the hood is where the magic happens for the current generation of the GT-R. You’ll find the hand-assembled twin-turbo VR38DETT 3.8L V6 engine begging you to fire it up. Here’s why that matters: this twin-turbo V6 packs a punch like a Muhammad Ali haymaker, pumping out 565 horsepower with 467 pound-feet of torque. 

A 6-speed dual clutch transmission allows you to take control of each shift via paddles. The Nissan GT-R utilizes an advanced rear transaxle that actually sends power to each of the vehicle’s four wheels when necessary. This is a very intelligent all-wheel drive system.

Speaking of the rims, they look fantastic. Famous wheel designer Rays provides gold-painted, forged aluminum-alloy wheels rolling over carbon-ceramic brakes to help keep those rims clean. Well, as clean as a sports car wheel can be when you are shredding asphalt with over 500 ponies to pull your carriage.

Other features unique to the T-spec GT-R include wider front fenders similar to the GT-R Track Edition of yesteryear. There is also a carbon fiber rear spoiler, blacked-out hood ducts, and T-spec badging to round out the package.

Sadly, this is the end of the line for the R35 generation of the GT-R from Nissan. It is safe to say the R35 is going out with style, not out of style. The 2021 Nissan GT-R “T-spec” Edition is not going to concede its glory any time soon. Get yours while you still can.
