Nissan GT-R Track Pack Vs. Porsche 997 Turbo S by Chris Harris

Video

Chris Harris investigates the value of the Track Pack edition, comparing how it fares against the Turbo S.

The new Nissan GT-R Track Pack comes in at £84,450, which is £10,000 more than the standard GT-R, and will only be available in the UK and Japan. Chris Harris went to a rain-soaked Brands Hatch to find out if that's money well spent. The differences, as he sees them, are minimal. It gets raised alloys for a 10kg saving, stiffer suspension, there are no rear seats and the front seats get 'magic cloth.' Front and rear cooling ducts round off the modifications.

Its vital statistics make for impressive reading. Power comes from a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 good for 560hp and 466lb-ft of torque, which manages to shift the GT-R Track Pack from 0-62mph in 2.84 seconds. That's Aventador territory.

When Nissan launched the GT-R in the UK it was less than £50k, and now it's heading towards the price of a 997 Turbo S. Ok, so not quite, as the 911 Turbo S costs £129,000. As a track rival, although it's not specifically designed for the circuit it does have paddle-shift gears, 4WD and bucket seats. And being a 911 Turbo S it's got to be a bit useful around a track, given its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat 6 makes 530hp, 516lb-ft of torque and runs from 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds.
