Inside sources have provided rock-solid confirmation that the Nissan GT-R we photographed as it was unloaded at a Nürburgring workshop is definitely the lightweight Spec V version. The prototype of the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec V has now hit the 'Ring itself for some initial laps, providing us a better look at the baddest version of the car many call Godzilla. (Gojira, if you’re a stickler for the accuracy of the original.)
The flat-black look of the carbon fiber rear wing is now more apparent, and revised front splitter is also better captured in our latest photos.
Due to market a year from now, the 2010 Nissan GT-R Spec V itself should generate some serious G-forces, what with its out-of-the-box 473 horsepower.
With the appearance of an actual production-spec prototype hitting the scene, rumors about the Spec V's increased power have begun rumbling throughout the media. Numbers between 550 and 600 horsepower are now floating around, which would clearly mean for some insane performance potential for what is already a Supercar-caliber ride. --Glenn Paulina with TCC Team
