It is already well known that the Nissan GT-R is on its way out. Though the automaker has the reputation for stretching its production runs the bit too far (why is the Frontier still stuck in the past decade?) with the GT-R seeing its 10th birthday this year, and it still looks and performs well enough to be relevant.
That being said, most buyers who wanted the GT-R have likely already plunked down for one, Nissan had to do something to move the last few units.
Thankfully it was saving the mid-trim playing card for last, has just played it by revealing the GT-R Track Edition.
Bridging the $65,000 gulf between a standard GT-R and the ultra-expensive GT-R NISMO, the GT-R Track Edition is a model many prospective buyers were waiting for.
While it preserves a same twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine making 565 hp versus GT-R NISMO’s 600 ponies, the Track Edition receives most of the other aerodynamic and the suspension upgrades seen on its bigger brother.
Roadshow hit the race track with a Track Edition in order to see how this parts combination comes together. Reportedly, a difference isn’t night and day with the added hardware alone, and what makes the bulk of the difference is the wheel and the tire combination.
To many buyers, we suspect that the Nissan GT-R Track Edition will appeal by using its visual superiority over a standard GT-R without incurring the same $176,585 damage as the NISMO version.
