Just when we thought the 2014 Nissan GT-R couldn’t get any better, Nissan proved us wrong. The company announced the launch of the new GT-R Track Edition today at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, which will join the 2014 GT-R lineup.
While the new Track Edition delivers the same output level as the standard GT-R, the updates made to the suspension, the addition of new fuel injectors and an oil pan baffle make it far better than the standard version.
In order to distinguish it from the standard version, the new Track Edition includes an array of modifications to the interior and exterior on top of the suspension improvements.
Deliveries for the new GT-R Track Edition will begin in May 2013. It will be limited to only 150 units.
So, is the new Track Edition worth whatever price hike that Nissan will place on it?
Nissan is adding yet another tier to the GT-R hierarchy for 2014 with the GT-R Track Edition. Debuting at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, the bruiser ditches its back seat in the quest for a lower curb weight, and a set of more seriously bolstered front buckets keep occupants planted once the going gets twisty. The Nürburgring-developed Track Edition offers an integrated carbon fiber front splitter with brake cooling ducts as well as an even harder-core suspension. Engineers swapped the stock bits for special Bilstein DampTronic shocks and paired them with more aggressive springs.
The engine still delivers 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque and still relies on the split-second quickness of the standard GT-R’s six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Expect to see just 150 examples of the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition land on American shores starting this May. In the interim, check out the full press release below for more information.
On the exterior, the new GT-R Track Edition is basically identical to the standard version. It gets large hood bulge, enlarged central air intake, super-wide-beam headlights and front fenders with “aero-blades.”
However, in order to differentiate it from the rest of the lineup, the new Track Edition receives a front spoiler with carbon-fiber air ducts, plus a handmade, lightweight dry-carbon-fiber rear spoiler that helps increase aerodynamic downforce.
Customers can choose between five exterior colors: Deep Blue Pearl, Jet Black, Solid Red, Gun Metallic and Pearl White.
