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.
