New 2022 Nissan GT-R T-Spec Is Yet Another Special Edition Model

The new Nissan GT-R T-Spec is yet another special edition model of this 13-year-old supercar. When will an all-new GT-R debut?

The Nissan GT-R is already 13 years old now, and it seems that the Japanese automaker won’t unveil an all-new model anytime soon with the release of the Nissan GT-R T-Spec.

The “T” in T-Spec means Traction Master or Trend Maker, and it comes in two variants, GT-R┬áPremium Edition T-spec and GT-R Track Edition Engineered by NISMO T-spec. All are scheduled to go on sale in the second half of October.

What sets the two Nissan GT-R T-Spec models apart from the standard GT-Rs are their new wheels, T-Spec badges, carbon ceramic brakes, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, bronze Rays forged alloy wheels, an exclusive T-Spec-specific engine cover. In addition, two new colors are making their debut, namely Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple

Midnight Purple is an advanced version of the color used on previous generations of GT-Rs and the company says it is inspired by the color-shifting of the aurora borealis. On the other hand, Millennium Jade “exudes sophistication and conveys a quiet, yet powerful presence”. These are Nissan’s words, not ours.

If you want even more exclusivity and performance, the even more ferocious GT-R Track Edition engineered by Nismo. Do note that this variant is not based on the even more ferocious GT-R Nismo. What sets this model apart is its exclusive carbon-fiber roof and trunk lid.

Inside the Nissan GT-R T-Spec, and you’ll get to see more T-Spec badges, along with an optional Mori Green color scheme. The seats are upholstered in semi-aniline leather with pearl suede accents, while the headliner is finished in quilted Alcantara. For the GT-R Track Edition engineered by Nismo, the interior color scheme is now in black and red.

Under the GT-R T-Spec’s hood is the same but bronze-accented 3.8-liter VR38DETT twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 565 hp and 633 Nm of torque, with power being sent to all four wheels via a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. While the engine remains unchanged, Nissan has revised its suspension that in order to take advantage of the weight reductions below the springs. An expanded wheel-rim width has increased tire rigidity, enabling smoother handling.

If you’re curious, this is how the non-T-Spec Nissan GT-R looks like for the 2022 model year. It largely remains unchanged ever since its last major facelift in 2018.

With the release of this special edition Nissan GT-R T-Spec, it’s safe to say that an all-new model won’t make it debut anytime soon.
