Premium Nissan GT-R to get ‘Egoist’ name –

Nissan definitely wants to stand out from the rest of the pack when it comes to its flagship GT-R performance model. We’ve already seen leaked details about the upcoming 2012 Nissan GT-R, and now new info on the premium version of the Japanese car has been uncovered.

According to Autocar, the more upmarket Nissan GT-R will get the ‘Egoist‘ name, instead of the rumored Spec M.

“Yes, there’s a bit of tongue in cheek in the name, and yes, the word does mean self-conceited, but we just wanted to have some fun with the name,” said a spokesman.

The Nissan GT-R Egoist will boast a revised front fascia, with a new front intake duct and larger air vents to provide cooling for the transmission and exhaust. The brakes have been enlarged, while the 10-spoke wheels are now even lighter. LED technology will be used on both the front and the rear of the sports car.

Expect an array of high end options to be available for the Egoist, as well as the changes that were already rumored for the 2012 Nissan GT-R.

Overall, it seems Nissan really wants to market the GT-R to other types of customers, not just performance enthusiasts.
