Question What does SE-R and Spec V stand for?

does anyone have any idea what se-r and/or spec v stands for?

i've heard several different rumors, like the V means 5 and it's because it's the 5th generation sentra, and blah blah. i know the spec v was taken from the skyline but what the hell does it stand for?

and for some clarification i believe it's pronounced spec V (vee) not 5, am i right?

Spec V (Pronounced VEE), was just a turnaround from the skyline "V-Spec" which means Victory Specification. Nissan North America wanted to use that on the SE-R, and the big shots over in Japan had a fit and said "NO!" So what did they do? Changed it to Spec V. I don't know about the SE-R though.

I believe it has been determined on the mailing list that SE-R does not stand for anything.
There are all sorts of ideas and stories, but no one has been able to prove any of them.
I would just pick the one you like best and go with that. Kind of like naming your car.

When I bought my 200SX SE, I remember the dealer telling me athat "SE" stands for "Sports Edition", I guess from the sporty suspension from the stock 200sx.

"SE-R" I think is a way to make it conform to the Skyline monkier like the GT-R

it's kinda like GXE is for the basic edition (or General edition)(still not sure what the X is for), GLE is the Luxary edition and SE is Sport edition. They just added an 'R' to the SE to make it sound sportier, "Racing Edition" or so.

BTW, I dont see to many GLE's out there. What's the difference in the GLE and the GXE B14? besides the gold Nissan emblems.

I thought it was either Sports Edition - Racing or Special Edition Racing. Just like the Honda Type-R. The r stands for racing.

Intergra Type Rice = Type R

Sport Edition Rice = SE-R yes even our own. :0(

Grand Touring Rice = GT-R

Special Incest Rice = SiR

So since all these names come from japan.. and we all know japanese are the riciest this is what the actual acronyms mean.


i'll smoke it!!
