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.

2014 Nissan Rogue SL AWD Long-Term Update 1

Aug 28 2014 10:08am CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Getting out of the 2014 Nissan Rogue and into cars with either traditional autos or even DSGs made me aware of how much Nissan is giving up with the CVT.The concept of the continuously variable transmission isn’t new. How not new? Well, its history traces back to a guy named Leonardo da Vinci and a drawing done right around 1490. While I am normally a huge fan of da Vinci’s work, they all can’t be winners. In fairness, he did invent the thing roughly 400 years ...

Nissan Juke-R (WITH NAWSSS) Laps The Nürburgring Like A Beast: Video

Aug 28 2014 9:47am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

The Nissan Juke-R is already an insanely upgraded version of the Juke crossover—or, taken another way, an insanely re-bodied version of the Nissan GT-R. So when you add nitrous oxide to the mix, make the all-wheel drive switchable to rear-wheel drive, and then throw it onto the Nürburgring Nordschleife, what you get ...

Kaz: Pushing The Virtual Divide Gran Turismo documentary now free on YouTube

Aug 27 2014 7:06pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Videos, Toys/Games, Celebrities The video game Gran Turismo arguably wasn't the first great driving simulator, but it came along at just the right time to do things no other console game had ever done so well before. First, the Sony PlayStation allowed for 3D graphics that could create a recognizable model of a car in 360 degrees. Also, GT offered a huge breadth of vehicles that could get almost anyone interested. Up to that point in ti ...

10 Green Cars that Don’t Suck: Eco-Excellence at All Price Points

Aug 27 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Mix pious intentions with dreary mechanical bits and then stir in some driving misery, and the result is a “green car.” Green not in the color of its paint, but in the environmental virtue of its engineering and marketing. Green as in economical with fuel but stingy on fun, great with emissions but lousy to pilot. Green cars are hybrids, diesels, and electric cars stripped to the point of making a rotted ox cart seem luxurious. Except that was then—you know, ...

Renault unveils bonkers, Alpine-inspired R.S. 01 racecar

Aug 27 2014 11:17am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Although we probably won’t see it in North America soon, if ever, Renault’s new R.S. 01 racer is worth dreaming about. The French automaker calls the R.S. 01 a “radical expression of the brand’s sporting DNA” and “governed by an absolute pursuit of aerodynamic downforce.” That would be putting it mildly considering the R.S. 01 is absolutely breathtaking. Developed by Renaultsport and no doubt inspired by the Alpine ...
