2012 "Track Pack" GT-R

 Although the Track Pack adds no extra power over the standard 2012 Nissan GT-R, it does gets a whole host of other dynamic and visual upgrades to make it the most hardcore version of the GT-R yet.   Chief vehicle engineer for the GT-R, Kazutoshi Mizuno, claims that the Nissan GT-R Track Pack should be able to lap the Nurburgring in under seven minutes...

 Comes equiped with lightweight six-spoke RAYS alloy wheels complete with a gloss black paint finish. Additional cooling ducts are built into the front bumper to provide extra air to the brakes, improving their performance in track use. 

Extra ducts hidden behind the rear wheels provide additional cooling for the rear discs.  Suspension changes include revised spring rates optimised for track use. The comfort setting for the adaptive dampers remain so the car can be receptive for road use.


 Inside, the Track Pack GT-Rs get special Recaro sports seats trimmed in a high-grip material that keeps the driver in place during hard cornering and braking. The rear seats are completely removed to save weight. An addition is a special ‘Track Pack’ emblem that is mounted in the centre console.

The Track Pack uses the same 542bhp turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 engine as the standard car and its 0-60mph time is also the same, at 2.7sec.

Nissan has confirmed the price of the standard 2012 GT-R at £74,450 (around $115,00 US), the Track Pack adding £10,000 (around $15,000) to this. Both cars are available to order now in the UK and deliveries will commence in March 2012. The Track Pack will NOT be available in the US.. Womp womp!
