How do I identify a GTR Recaro edition?

Thinking of getting back into a GTR. Hoping someone can let me know how I identify a GTR Recaro edition over a Black Edition for example?

Cheers.

Dave, thank you.

I did a little search on site after posting the question and it seems that on the 11 model cars onwards there is no longer a Black Edition, just a Premium and Premium Recaro.

Are the seats the only difference?

Finally, is there a way of confirming 550 or 530bhp?

Cheers.

Arrow

I think you will find that the Recaro seats are a no cost option? The rest of the car is the same?

As regards BHP I think you would need to check the vin plate? There is a thread on the forum somewhere about this.

Dave.
