Finally, Nissan has announced the price tag for 2013 GT-R US model. The sports car hits the US market with a competitive price of $96 820 for GT-R Premium, while the Black Edition model is nearly ten grand more - $106 320.

The new 2013 GT-R is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 with 553PS (406 kW) and 627Nm (463 lb-ft) of torque, which is an increase of 15PS and 20Nm. It is not much, but at least it is something.

The Black Edition features special metallic black six-spoke RAYS lightweight wheels with the same tires.

Six exterior colors are available for 2013: Deep Blue Pearl, Jet Black, Solid Red, Gun Metallic, Pearl White and a 4-stage metallic Super Silver.
