The Japanese automaker has decided to add another “Godzilla” to the franchise – the road-legal 2017 GT-R Track Edition is actually hitting the empty spot in between the regular Touring and Nismo hardcore versions.
The company will take the wraps off its new Track Edition in April during the 2017 New York Auto Show, in full US specification. In America, the base Touring costs at least $109,990 MSRP, and Nissan has decided a premium of $18,000 is in order for the third member of the GT-R family. The Track edition does come with certain parts from the flagship – Nismo front fenders, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, and a Nismo-reworked suspension setting. Nissan is also delivering a unique red and black theme inside the cabin where the driver and passenger also dive in the bucket Recaro seats. The Track Edition comes with numerous standard features: eight-touchscreen for the refreshed infotainment system with navi and apps. There are also emergency services, a Bose sound system, a rearview camera and a titanium exhaust system.
The 2017 Nissan GT-R Track Edition comes with the Touring’s version of the biturbo 3.8-liter V6 – though you won’t be thinking it lacks power at 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque sent to the road via a sequential six-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. It will become available late this summer from $127,990 MSRP and as the name implies we’re dealing with a special series limited-run model, though we’re not quite sure how many units have been allocated.
