Released just a few weeks ago, the Nissan GT-R SpecV promises to be an even more hardcore track-focused weapon than the original. Fans that had feared the SpecV might end up a JDM-only variant need fear no longer, as a left-hand drive model has been spotted in the wild, indicating foreign-market sales are at least being seriously considered.

Captured from the frames of a Best Motoring DVD, the images reveal that LHD models will be headed to certain markets, though the U.S. isn't yet confirmed to be one of them. In fact, rumors have been circulating that the SpecV may wait until 2010 or 2011 if it makes it to the U.S. at all.

Europe and the Middle East are no doubt clamoring for their own, however, and the sight of this LHD model leaves the door open for those markets.

Official power specifications and acceleration figures for the SpecV haven't yet been released, but with a price roughly double the standard GT-R's price in its home market, the SpecV is expected to offer something besides carbon fiber bodywork and unique paint schemes.
