SYDNEY – May 27, 2013: Nissan has confirmed that a new edition of the all-conquering GT-R will be available in Australia from next month with the introduction of the Nissan GT-R Black Edition to the Australian market.

The Black Edition sees the addition of skilled craftsmanship to the already breathtaking performance of the GT-R, with striking features such as an impressive carbon fibre rear spoiler and red and black interior treatment.

Specially-commissioned Recaro front seats, featuring red leather-accented trim, offer ergonomic support and comfort for both track days and the daily commute.

Metallic black forged alloy 20-inch RAYS six spoke wheels are super-lightweight to reduce unsprung weight, while also featuring knurled beads to help prevent tyres moving on rims under hard acceleration.

“The GT-R Black Edition has already proved popular in other markets, so we are pleased to introduce this exciting model to Australia,” said Nissan Motor Co (Australia) Managing Director and CEO William F Peffer Jr.

The Nissan GT-R Black Edition has a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $182,500 (estimated drive-away price of $199,990) and is available from authorised Nissan GT-R dealers from June.
