The standard GT-R and GT-R NISMO models received a major overhaul a year ago, and now Nissan is rolling out a revised version of the GT-R Track Edition at the 2017 New York Auto Show. Created to deliver a higher level of performance than the GT-R Premium, the Track Edition features elements of the flagship GT-R NISMO, though retaining the GT-R Premium model's 565-horsepower engine rating (versus the GT-R NISMO's 600-horsepower version).
M - Nissan has announced that it will be showing a special-order-only new version of the refreshed 2017 GT-R sports coupe at the New York International Auto Show in April.
So, what makes a new GT-R Track Edition a Track Edition? Additionally the suspension is now lighter and uniquely tuned by Nismo, the wheels are now 20-inch forged items and the rear spoiler is made out of carbon-fiber.
The Nissan GT-R Track Edition will be placed in the lineup between the T which is touring edition and R which is the racing edition of GT-R. Hand built in a special clean room by a specially trained group of craftspeople, the V6 breathes through a titanium exhaust system, and is harnessed to a six-speed, dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive system.
The new 2017 Nissan GT-R Track Edition is set to make its public debut at the NY auto show in April and is scheduled to go on sale late this summer with a starting price of $129,585.
The new Nissan GT-R Track Edition is priced at $127,990 (plus $1,595 destination and handling fee), and will be available late summer and by order only at GT-R certified dealers nationwide.
Torque is rated a 476 lb. -ft.
Inside, the Track Edition gets a red and black theme, with grippy, leather-upholstered Recaro seats. An aluminum plate is added to the front of each engine showing the name of the Takumi engine craftsman. Standard interior features include the NissanConnect infotainment system with navigation and access to mobile apps, a rearview camera, and a Bose audio system with active noise cancellation. High performance differential oil, used in GT-R motorsports competition, is standard.
