GTR Gets Track Update

2012 will see the introduction of the latest generation of GTR, but today Nissan has announced that a special ‘Track Pack’ will also be available.

In terms of mechanical upgrades, the suspension’s spring rates have been revised for track use, although the dampers remain adjustable, and additional cooling ducts have been incorporated into the front bumper, which mean the brakes can stay up to 100 degrees cooler.

Similar ducts have been fitted inside the rear bumper to improve brake cooling at the rear.

Cosmetically, the Track Pack is identifiable by ultra-lightweight six-spoke RAYS alloys with gloss black painted centres, Recaro front seats made from a high grip material to prevent the driver from excessive movement during cornering or braking, no rear seats, and a Track Pack emblem on the centre console.

550 bhp comes from the 3.8 litre turbocharged V6, the same as the standard 2012 model, but the 0-60 mph time is just 2.7 seconds.

The Track Pack adds £10,000 GTR’s list price, giving it a total cost of £84,450, and orders can be taken from any one of Nissan’s High Performance Centres, with deliveries starting in March.
