The new 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition for the U.S. market has a price tag of US$115,710. Nissan North America, Inc. said that with the Track Edition, it hopes to take the street supercar even nearer to being a pure motorsports competition machine.
It is equipped with a specially tuned suspension, special brake cooling guides, front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts and a lightweight quilted cloth mat where the rear seats typically are.
There will only be 150 units built of the GT-R Track Edition. It is currently on sale at select certified Nissan GT-R dealers throughout the country.
The new GT-R Track Edition enters the lineup that already has the GT-R Premium and GT-R Black Edition, which started selling in early 2013. The 2014 GT-R comes with better performance, higher levels of craftsmanship and an all-new optional Premium interior, which consists of hand-stitched Amber Red semi-aniline leather appointments (for just the front seats).
Furthermore, Nissan improved the torque response at middle RPM range (4500～6000 rpm) and acceleration at high RPM's (above 6000 rpm) compared to the 2013 GT-R.
Black Edition features a set of special lightweight black aluminum forged RAYS wheels, distinctive red and black interior, Recaro® leather-appointed seats and a unique dry carbon fiber rear spoiler.
The latest iteration of the Nissan GT-R is (2013 model year) now available in Europe and Japan and comes complete with higher levels of stability, better response times as well as sharper handling.
Serving as the core of the 2013 Nissan GT-R now is a tweaked version of the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that doesn’t just deliver 550 PS of output, but also offers enhanced response time from the mid and upper rev ranges. Thanks to revisions implemented on the GT-R’s dampers, springs and front anti-roll bar, Godzilla is now more stable on higher speeds and boasts of enhanced traction. Moreover, these revisions allow the GT-R to offer a more refined ride and an improved driver experience.
As a result of these tweaks, the 2013 Nissan GT-R could sprint from zero to 62 mph (0 to 100km/h) in just 2.7 seconds, which is around 0.1 second quicker than its predecessor. Moreover, the 2013 Nissan GT-R is also faster in the Nurburgring circuit in Germany than the previous model. During a test in the Green Hell in May 2012, the 2013 Nissan GT-R clocked seven minutes and 19.1 seconds, compared to seven minutes and 21 seconds for the 2012 GT-R. According to GT-R creator Kazutoshi Mizuno, around 0.5 second was lost to traffic during the lap, which means that the 2013 Nissan GT-R could have completed the lap in seven minutes and 18.6 seconds.
Interestingly, the most recent tweaks on the 2013 Nissan GT-R were derived from the modifications made as derived from data generated during the 2012 Nurburgring 24-Hour race in Germany, in which two near-production GT-R models were fielded.
With these tweaks showcasing Nissan's latest technology, the Nissan GT-R remains a four-wheel-drive super-coupe with a pedigree already spanning more than four decades. When Nissan first unveiled the GT-R, its aggressive and distinct styling as well as its dynamic performance resulted to rave reviews and commendations. Since then, Nissan has been improving both the GT-R’s looks and performance.
