Nissan GT-R: ” Egoist ” Luxury version

By Daniel Chubb - Sep 7, 2010

It was only a few days ago that we reported on Nissan’s facelifted 2012 GT-R, but while this is still interesting news for all us performance hungry individuals, it may interest you to know that Nissan will be releasing a luxury version of its new autobahn stormer.

Named the Egoist the higher spec model will carry a redesigned front fascia, new specially designed Recaro interior and huge front brakes hidden by 10 spoke alloy wheels. To go with the luxury theme a price tag of $166,740 is expected. According to a report from Autocar it is not yet know if the U.S will see the Egoist or if it will be for the Europe market only.

Whatever happens the new model will be debuted later on this year next to the ( dare I say it ) standard facelifted GT-R. As with the previous GT-R that superseded its Skyline brother, we will see a loss in weight, along with a new oil cooler and exhaust system coupled to larger turbo chargers, pushing the power up to a estimated 506 bhp.

So watch this space for more news on Nissan’s latest gen GT-R, and also the 2013 GT-R Hybrid that we spoke about at the end of last year.
