The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently presented the Track Pack version of its popular GT-R sports car.
According to the car manufacturer, even if the Nissan GT-R Track Pack is track-focused, the vehicle remains road legal, and the development of the Track Pack started with the owners of the GT-R, who apparently are the most demanding in the road and they always want an extra edge on the circuit. The Track Pack version of the Nissan GT-R is able to go around the famous German Nurburgring track in less than seven minutes, as the GT-R chief engineer, Kazutoshi Mizuno, said.
The Nissan GT-R Track Pack is powered by the same 3.8 liter V6 engine but even if no one can tell the exact amount of power developed on the regular model, this particular version is generation a total output of 542 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.7 seconds. Nissan says that the GT-R Track Pack is coming with a modified suspension, Recaro seats, a Track Pack emblem on the center console and the rear seats have been removed in order to save weight.
Nissan is doing exactly what other major automakers are doing with powerful versions of their cars, which is stripping them down to nothing and then charging us more, so the price for the GT-R Track Pack version has been set 10.000 GBP above the cost of a regular GT-R, which is 74.450 GBP. The version is already available for order in the UK and deliveries will start from March, 2012.
