Only 50 units bound for the US

Nissan has announced the official US pricing for the 2014 GT-R Special Edition. The vehicle features a unique Midnight Opal exterior color and highly limited production. Only 100 units will be produced worldwide.

In addition to the exclusive Midnight Opal color, the GT-R Special Edition will feature a dry carbon fiber rear spoiler and forged aluminum wheels with hyper-titanium coating. All 100 units will be fitted with a special number plate in the engine compartment to show what number it is out of 100.

The special paint color is applied by hand and promises the exterior finish typically seen only in exotic supercars. The paint will change colors depending on viewing angle and lighting. Pricing for the GT-R Special Edition is $105,590. That's an additional $6000 over the Premium model. Only 50 units will come to the US starting this fall.

Filed under: Motorsports, Truck, Videos, Off-Road, Racing Last year, former Baja 1000 champ BJ Baldwin and his trophy truck proved that they could save a women stranded in the desert in a broken down Nissan GT-R in a video called Recoil. For this year's sequel, he's turned the excitement way up. By combining high speed, huge jumps, women in bikinis, liberal use of slow-mo and staging everything in a unique location, the makers of Recoil 2 might have hit on t ...

Filed under: Performance, Europe, Government/Legal, Hatchback, Kia, Nissan, Electric Quick Spin: 2014 Kia Cee'd GT We're undergoing somewhat of a Hot Hatch Revival here in America these days, but the sad truth is that for every Volkswagen GTI and Ford Focus ST we can buy, the average European shopper has three to choose from. So, if we can't beat 'em, we'll borrow 'em. We travel to the UK, to wring ...

2014 Nissan Juke NISMO RS Test: Amphibian Butt, Hustling

Sep 18 2014 5:34pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

On this planet since 2010, the Nissan Juke is the poster child for nonconformist new-wave crossovers. The design looks strangely amphibian, or like something you might encounter while scuba diving a deep reef near the Bahamas. Or a thing to be served with drawn butter and a nice side salad. Polarizing, may ...

The Renault R.S. 01 Is a Damn Stylish, $400K Race Car—with a GT-R Motor

Sep 18 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It has a Nissan GT-R engine and a Dallara-built carbon-fiber tub, and—if you have $400,000 sitting around—you can buy one and enter what’s likely to be a spectacular bangs-and-bumps pro-am championship racing series. Meet the Renault R.S. 01. Yes, that’s right, Renault. Despite the brand’s complete irrelevance in North America, France’s biggest carmaker still gets plenty of promotional bang out of racing activities elsewhere on the planet, with its World Series by Renault encompassing multipl ...

The only 4 compact pickups you can buy for under $25,000

Sep 18 2014 2:45pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

If you’re head honcho at the construction site, a gold-grilled rapper sitting on 24s, or the king rancher in your province, you drive the big, expensive, one-ton leather-lined and chrome-happy pickup truck. If you’re not that person (we know you’re working up to that) but still need the utility of a small pickup, you still have a few options that will get the job done. Compact pickups are also good at easing you into driving a pickup, as their smaller ...

IRS won't, or can't, reveal how many plug-in vehicle tax credits are left

Sep 18 2014 2:11pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, AutoblogGreen Exclusive The IRS has set up a page to help track individual automaker sales figures, but it's a complete mess. One of the benefits of driving a plug-in vehicle these days is a federal tax credit worth up to $7,500. Officially called IRC 30D, this credit is intended to make the high cost of new EVs sting less for early adopters. Of course, free government money doesn't last forever, and whe ...

Nissan Engineers Build Leaf Pickup

Sep 18 2014 12:09pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Team-Building Exercise Turns Into Conversation PieceWherever there are enthusiasts, it seems, invariably, that one of the projects that eventually pop up is a pickup conversion of a car. We’ve seen some pretty unlikely candidates, including a BMW M3, Volkswagen Jetta, and now, a Nissan Leaf. Although the Leaf may seem like the most unlikely of candidates for the pickup treatment, necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention. a Photo ...

Meet Sparky, Nissan's Leaf-based, Frontier-bedded EV parts hauler [w/video]

Filed under: Truck, Work, Nissan, Electric For many enthusiasts, the concept of the ute - a car with a pickup bed - is somehow irresistibly appealing. On paper, it promises the marriage of a truck's utility and a car's superior driving dynamics, and for that reason alone, we'd love to see more of them. Yet while other parts of the world get them in good numbers, North America doesn't ever ...
