2012 Nissan GT-R Track Pack

Nissan has developed a new version of the GT-R for drivers who want an extra edge on the track.

There’s no question the ‘12 Nissan GT-R may be one of the fastest cars in the world, especially for its price. Nissan also recognizes its owners are also 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 track. But unfortunately, it’ll only be available to UK owners first…

Called ‘Track Pack’, this new version of the GT-R offers a harder edge and yet remains fully road legal. On the outside, the Track Pack is easily identified by lightweight six-spoke RAYS wheels with gloss black painted centres.

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.

To reflect this GT-R’s harder edge, the suspension’s spring rates have been revised to be optimal for track use. Like all GT-Rs though, the dampers are adjustable.

Inside, 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 centre console identifies this model as a special GT-R.

The engine retains the same specification as the ‘regular’ 2012 model GT-R, which means 530hp. The first deliveries are expected in March 2012.
