Nissan GT-R Track Pack
The Nissan GT-R may well be one of the fastest cars in the world, but its owners are the most demanding in the world. So Nissan has developed a new version of the GT-R for drivers who want an extra edge on the race track.
Called ‘Track Pack', this new version of the GT-R offers a harder edge and yet remains fully road legal.
Externally the Track Pack is easily identified by lightweight six-spoke RAYS alloys with gloss black painted centers.
The brakes behind these are cooled by additional cooling ducts built into the front bumper. These reduce the operating temperature of the front brake discs by as much as 100 degrees during track use, improving the stopping performance. Similar ducts, hidden behind the rear wheels, channel cooling air over the rear discs.
Track Pack also features special, stiffer suspension designed to optimise 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 a flick of a switch, making the GT-R Track Pack suitable for all environments.
The changes that make up the Track Pack are not just under the shell, though. Internally, Recaro front seats are trimmed with blue bolsters and an innovative high grip material to help keep the driver in place during hard cornering and braking. The rear seats have been removed to save weight. A ‘Track Pack' emblem on the center console identifies this model as a special GT-R.
The engine retains the same specification as the ‘regular' GT-R, which means 550PS of power. The 0-60 mph time is just 2.7 seconds.
The Track Pack is only available in the UK and Japan.
