2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition pricing revealed

Supercar for the street becomes supercar for the track

When a car receives the name 'Godzilla' it's probably difficult to continually one-up itself. But Nissan has just announced the 2014 pricing for a model more-rare than the typical GT-R (as if those two words make sense together). The GT-R Track Edition isn't rare because of any out of this world power increases or some insignificant exterior detail, it is rare because only 150 examples will be sold to the United States.

But with rarity, comes a price. And this price is a hefty $115,710 plus $1000 for destination and handling. That might make any potential GT-R buyer think the Premium model is a bargain. What's the point with no upgraded engine numbers? Well, as you may have guessed with the name 'Track Edition' there are some significant upgrades that would make any track day full of passing maneuvers.

In terms of track preparedness, this 545hp monster receives a specially tuned suspension, special brake cooling guides, front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts, and a handmade lightweight dry carbon fiber rear spoiler. The suspension features Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers and higher spring rates, which along with the brakes were refined through rigorous track testing at the famed Nurburgring.

The interior even received some significant changes, the biggest being the deletion of rear seats, making this 2+2 a 2+0. In place of the rear-seat deletion is a quilted cloth mat with little divots perfect for track going accessories. The two remaining seats feature special blue-trimmed high-grip leather and fabric appointments.

The entire car sits on special metallic black six-spoke Rays forged lightweight wheels, surrounded by ultra high performance run-flat nitrogen-filled Dunlop tires.

But don't sit there weighing your options too long, because when a car as race built as the Nissan GT-R Track Edition is limited to 150, you know there will be plenty of people scrambling to find their checkbooks.
