Nissan GT R Egoist 1 at Nissan GT R Egoist Pictures and Details

The Egoist, as the name kinda suggests, is the ultimate expression of Nissan GT-R for those who want more than just clever performance. It adds more luxury and personality to the Godzilla of sportscars and tries to offer a more refined version of the GT-R.

Each Nissan GT-R Egoist is bespoke and tailor-made to its owner and is built under supervision of chief vehicle engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno who is known as the father of the GT-R. Some of the exclusive features of this model includ a hand-crafted interior using only the best quality hides, a Bose sound system tailored to the owner’s exact dimensions.

Nissan says the GT-R Egoist, which is built only to special order, is reassuringly expensive and, as a result, is aimed at a very select audience. Exclusivity has a price you have to pay!

The Egoist is base don the 2011 Nissan GT-R and is powered by the upgraded twin-turbo V6 that now churns out 530 hp and 612Nm of torque. Enhanced aerodynamics have increased downforce by 10 per cent while chassis and damper changes have sharpened the handling and smoothed the ride. It goesr form 0 to 100 km/h in 3.046 seconds while top speed is 315 km/h.

They didn’t pay much attention to improving the performance becasue the Egoist is all about luxury and therefore, the interior.

That’s why it gets an upgraded full leather interior created by Seton Leather in Germany. Leather trim now extends throughout the interior and includes areas such as the base of the front seats, the seat belt buckle surrounds, the A and B pillars, the centre console surround and the transmission tunnel. Leather can even be found lining the interior of the cup holders and covering the door sills. Plain and quilted finishes are used to provide visual contrasts between the sections.

Nissan can’t stress enough this leather is not ordinary. They’re from Seton and come from a very special lineup of livestock!

Each car is taken from the main production line and taken to a special studio area in the plant where the Seton leather package is waiting to be installed. It takes a total of three hours for each installation. In total there are no fewer than 20 colour combinations available with either a single colour used throughout or contrasting treatments for the upper and lower portions of the interior. There are ten different colour options for the lower interior – including a pale pink – and four for the upper section. Further choices include the availability of six contrasting options for the stitching. Carpeting throughout is also colour co-ordinated. Taking all the possible options into account there’s a total of 84 different colour combinations for owners to choose from..

They’ve also used suede to complement the leather on areas like headlining, sunvisors, rear parcel shelf and lower door panels.

One other exclusive feature of the GT-R Egoist is the hand-crafted GT-R emblem on the steering wheel. For this very special GT-R, each badge is entrusted to one man, Kubota-san of the Goshikiya workshop. It takes many days to build up the layers of paint to create the depth of colour and the unique finish on the emblem. Each one, therefore, is unique.

The Bose sound system we’ve told you about is 11-speaker system that features a newly developed switching amp and a world first in its use of a carbon composite mounting for a new 9-inch woofer. It’s exclusively tuned based on the customer’s height, leg length and preferred angle of the seat backrest for the best possible sound experience.

The Egoist inherits some features from the GT-R SpecV including the special six-spoke forged RAYS alloy wheels – for Egoist they have a unique ‘Blue Sword’ finish – and a carbon composite rear spoiler. There’s also a choice of exterior colours, some of which are shared with other GT-R models… but as befits its exclusive status, Egoist is the only GT-R available in a new colour specially created for the car: Ultimate Opal White.
