If you don’t need the range-topping GT-R Nismo and live in Great Britain, there’s a new option coming out this November – the new GT-R Track Edition.
The model, clearly oriented towards circuit passionate racers, is being introduced in the range on the UK market, positioned above the current Premium, Prestige, and Black Edition trim levels, but not trespassing on the Nismo territory. The engineers from Nismo though had a big input in the Track Edition, reworking the standard GT-R suspension and steering – as well as implementing a new lightweight anti-roll bar that both increases stiffness and lowers overall weight. Specifically engineered for “thrill-seeking track enthusiasts,” the GT-R Track Edition comes with unique 20-inch aluminum wheels, as well as wider front bumper, or a carbon fiber spoiler. Inside, the black and red Recaro seats have been taken from the GT-R Black Edition and there’s also a bespoke Track Edition badge made from carbon located on the dashboard.
The Track Edition is of course based on the 2017 GT-R, first introduced during the New York Auto Show in April, so it gets the newest version of Nissan’s infotainment system with eight-inch display and an 11-speaker Bose audio unit. It also benefits from the upgraded engine, the 3.8-liter V6 biturbo now packs 570 horsepower (419 kilowatts) and 470 pound-feet (637 Newton meters) of torque. While the standard GT-R kicks off at £79,885 ($103,483) in the United Kingdom, the GT-R Track Edition is scheduled to go on sale in November with prices beginning from £91,995 ($119,262).
