Track Edition Finally headed to the US at NYIAS 2017
Arriving at the New York International Auto Show April 14 ,The Track Edition will finally be offered in limited quantities for the US Market for 2017. It will not be like the initial version offered in 2014. That GTR, limited to just around 160 units for 2014, and featured deleted rear seats, microfiber blue trimmed seats, Nordring tuned suspension and carbon fiber brake cooling ducts added to the front lip.
The 2018 Track Edition available this summer in the US and is currently available in Europe Japan and Canada. This GTR will be based off the Premium version and will include the Titanium Exhaust standard and all of the interior and exterior upgrades found on all 2017 models. The Suspension will be the same one found in the GTR NISMO down to the adhesive chassis bonding.
The Track Edition will also borrow the 6 spoke black NISMO branded wheels from the GTR NISMO wrapped in a bespoke Dunlop NR1 tire developed during the GTR NISMO's record setting Nurburgring run. The front wheels are 10" in diameter like the NISMO up from 9.5 so a slightly wider fender is also added.The only other exterior changes besides the wheels will be the return of the matte carbon rear spoiler previously found on the Black Edition. Speaking of which the 2018 Track Edition features red accented stitch, door handles, and Recaro seats just like the now retired (for the US Market)Black Edition did. Unlike other markets, the only way to get this Recaro interior in the US is on the actual Track Edition model.
The Track Edition will lean more toward the "R" axis than the "GT" found on the Premium. However it will retain the 565hp rating of the 2018 GTR as it will not feature the larger turbos of its bigger brother thus still sitting under the GTR NISMO as the ultimate track day GTR. the Track Edition while lacking the 35 extra horsepower and down force producing carbon fiber bodykit of the GTR NISMO itself, customers will be able to get some of that NISMO experience with an estimated $50K in savings to their wallet
