2012 Nissan GT-R Egoist Edition

2012 Nissan GT-R Egoist Edition

The other day Dodge released a really cool-named version of their Challenger SRT8 model, dubbed “Green Envy”. Today we’re going to talk about another car with an interesting name, the 2012 Nissan GT-R “Egoist Edition”. This new edition joins the other already available: Pure Edition, Black Edition, Premium Edition, SpecV and Club Track. The most interesting thing about this one, aside from its cool name, would have to be that it is the first and only GT-R exclusively created by Takumi.

Each of the cars will be unique, as the buyers will have the possibility to choose from a combination of 20 interior colors. Under the hood of this beast will be the standard GT-R engine, and by standard we mean 530 hp @ 6,400 rpm / 612 Nm @ 3,200 – 6,000 rpm, coming from the V6 3.8-liter twin turbo, mated to a 6-speed dual clutch gearbox. This allows the car to do the 0-62 mph sprint in 3 seconds, onto a top speed of 195 mph. Despite it is a very powerful engine, fuel consumption is rated at 8.5 liters / km.

Moving on to the exterior changes, this “Egoist Edition” benefits from a black carbon rear spoiler that you will also see in the SpecV model, which was added in order to improve the aerodynamic performances of the GT-R. The car rolls on highly-rigid forged aluminum-alloy rims that are offered in a 5-layer Blue Sword Chrome Color Coating. This special edition GT-R also got a Titanium exhaust system.

More significant modifications can be seen inside the cabin. As we mentioned before, buyers will have to choose from 20 colors, 4 upper area interior colors as well as 10 lower area interior colors. The seats of the “Egoist Edition” have an exclusive quilted design that has single and double stitching combined in a reticular pattern.

Those lucky enough to buy the car will also get a Bose Precision Sound System that has carbon composite-based woofers. More than that, Bose will adjust the sound quality for each owner, depending upon the individual driving position.

The 2012 Nissan GT-R Egoist Edition will be available only in Japan at a starting price of 15,000,300 Yen (approximately $184,500 at the current rates).
