Another eagerly anticipated chapter in the Nissan GT-R success story has begun, with the arrival of the MY17 GT-R Track Edition.
As the name implies it’s been specifically engineered for thrill-seeking track enthusiasts by the dedicated team at NISMO designed to deliver a higher level of performance than the standard MY17 GT-R priced from £91,995. The Nissan GT-R Track Edition sits above the Premium, Prestige & Black Edition in the model line-up, but below the flagship GT-R NISMO. Performance modifications to further improve the dynamic experience include :
01. Bespoke Bilstein Damptronic® suspension – a race tuned set-up that is designed to optimise straight-line & cornering stability.
02. A new lightweight anti-roll bar – added to increase body stiffness and reduce weight.
03. NISMO Racing Black forged 20-inch aluminium wheels and tyres.
04. A wider front bumper.
However the exact specification varies by market. So for example Track Edition cars in Germany come with carbon-backed Recaro seats as standard with the carbon rear spoiler available as an option. In the UK the black and red Recaro seats from the GT-R Black Edition are fitted while the carbon spoiler is standard. A boot lid made from carbon and the carbon-backed seats are optional extras. What is included on every version is the unique Track Edition badge made from carbon that’s attached to the dashboard. The GT-R Track Edition is based on the MY17 GT-R which was first unveiled at the New York Motor Show in April 2016. Building on the GT-R’s unrivalled supercar heritage, the four-wheel-drive super-coupé features a striking new aerodynamic exterior design. Customers will start to take to delivery of cars from early November.
