Nissan GT-R Track Pack Edition Arrives in the UK

Special Edition

The new track day car from Nissan offers stiff suspension for the circuit and a comfortable one for the road.

GT-R owners are among the most demanding in the world. In response to demand Nissan has replied with the GT-R Track Pack - a new version of the Nissan supercar for those drivers who require a faster, lighter, harder GT-R and one that has that extra edge at the race track. The new car is called the Track Pack and offers GT-R drivers a more focused driving experience while still remaining fully road legal. On the outside, the new car features special six-spoke RAYS alloys with gloss black centers.

These wheels save over 10 kg over the standard GT-R, while additional brake cooling ducts built into the carbon front splitter reduce the operating temperature by as much 100 degrees during track use; similar ducts hidden behind the rear wheels channel cooling air over the rear discs. The Nissan GT-R Track Pack also features stiffer suspension designed to optimize track performance. It comprises a harder set-up and increased body rigidity and has been jointly developed with the GT-R development driver Toshio Suzuki during extensive testing at the Nurburgring.

It will allow GT-R customers to achieve the perfect set-up at the track but, thanks to the special dampers, customers will be able to change the suspension for road-use at the flick of a switch, making the GT-R Track Pack suitable for all environments. Inside, the car loses rear seats but gains two track-ready front sports seats. The Track Pack also boasts special blue-on-grey sports seats made from fabric and leather. The high friction fabric allows occupants to 'stick' to the seats during hard cornering and braking.

A Track Pack emblem also sits on the dashboard helping to identify this special GT-R model, whilst more comfortable seat belts, an enhanced Bose audio system, and a rear-view camera as fitted to the standard GT-R also feature. Performance statistics remain unchanged to the 'standard' 2012 GT-R. That means Track Pack customers will still be able to enjoy the GT-R's 550PS power output, and a 0-62 time of just 2.8 seconds. The Track Pack is available in the UK and Japan, and is priced at £10,000 more than the standard £74,450.
