Nissan GT-R Enthusiasts will have a good Tuesday. Nissan announced the 2021 GT-R T-Spec limited-edition, and with it, the automaker dug back into its archives to revive two famous colors from the R34 Skyline GT-R: Millennium Z and Midnight Purple.

Die-hard fans will remember that the Millennium Z graced the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür, while Midnight Purple originally comes from the R34 V-Spec. Nissan only made 156 GT-R V-Spec II Noir models that ended millennium Z years ago, so now’s probably your best chance to park this color in the garage. As for Midnight Purple, it’s a twist on the original color, originally called Midnight Purple III. Nissan only manufactured 132 R34 GT-Rs in purple and 100 R35-generation cars in 2014. Purple is a dark green color that works with the T-Spec’s Gold Rays aluminum alloy wheels.

The T-spec GT-R isn’t as hardcore as the Nismo and sits above the GT-R Premium, but it gets carbon-ceramic brakes and brake air guides from the Nismo in the form of hand-me-down gear. A carbon fiber rear spoiler, body-coloured exterior elements and T-spec badges are also part of the package. Oh, and there’s a new Mori Green interior color to pair with the exterior color. And when all is said and done, the same twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 sits under the hood with 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque.

Special edition prices start at $138,490 before destination and tax, and Nissan said this production run would be “very limited”. GT-R fans, better move on quickly.
