Highlighting the 2014 Nissan GT-R Midnight Opal Edition package's unique
features is the new Midnight Opal exterior paint. The highly reflective paint
treatment changes appearance slightly from a deep purple to a deep blue
depending on light conditions and viewing angle.
In addition to the custom paint, GT-R Midnight Opal Edition also features a never before offered in the U.S. hyper-titanium colored coating on the RAYS forged lightweight wheels, a dry carbon fiber rear spoiler similar to that utilized on the GT-R Black and GT-R Track Editions, and a gold-plated serialized plaque of authenticity located in the engine compartment.
Based on the GT-R Premium model, the new GT-R Midnight Opal Edition comes with Nissan's advanced VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 rated at 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque (hand assembled in a special clean room) and exclusive Premium Midship platform that enables the use of the dynamic independent rear transaxle ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system. Total vehicle adjustability is provided by set-up switches located in the center of the instrument panel, enabling the driver to adjust transmission, shock absorbers and the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC-R) among three settings - Normal, Special or R.
The interior features sculpted performance bucket seats and a cockpit-style instrument panel with a large center-mounted tachometer and multi-function display - which includes mechanical and driving information, as well as an on-board driving recorder. A specially designed 11-speaker Bose sound system with speakers mounted in rigid aluminum die cast panels is standard.
The price of the new limited production 2014 Nissan GT-R Midnight Opal Edition is $105,590 USD, a $6,000 USD increase over the GT-R Premium model MSRP. Half of the 100 total units available worldwide will be available in the U.S. with sales beginning in September.
