2009 Nissan GT-R (regular strength version)

According to the folks at Pistonheads, Nissan is preparing this new model featuring a recalibrated suspension setup for greater compliance, including what it calls “ripple control shock absorbers.”

On the inside, more upscale trimmings are also expected, with new seat color choices, as well as optional aluminum and woodgrain(!) finishes available.

No drivetrain or exterior modifications are mooted, and if that’s the case, we’d expect very similar performance figures.

No word yet on what markets the rumored Spec-M will be sold in, but we can see a business case being made for the U.S. at Nissan HQ in light of America’s often questionable road surfaces and stereotypically softer posteriors.
