Special edition GT-R gets bespoke Bilstein suspension and some interior tweaks; arrives in November
26 September 2016

Nissan has revealed the GT-R Track Edition, upping performance yet further on the 2017 model of its flagship performance car.

The Track Edition sits below the top-of-the-range GT-R Nismo, but above other GT-R models. Changes include new, specially developed Bilstein Damptronic suspension and a revised interior.

The suspension is race-tuned to optimise straight-line performance, as well as cornering, and a new lightweight anti-roll bar has been added to reduce mass and increase the GT-R’s stiffness.

Sporting a wider front bumper and forged 20in aluminium wheels, finished in Nismo Racing Black, the Track Edition cars vary in specification slightly by country. In the UK, it gets the same black and red Recaro seats as the GT-R Black Edition and a carbon spoiler as standard. A carbon bootlid can be ordered as an option, as can carbon-backed seats. Each car gets its own Track Edition carbon badge attached to the dashboard.

Equipment-wise, the GT-R Track Edition features the same technology found in the latest ‘standard’ GT-R, which arrived in the UK in August. This includes an 11-speaker Bose sound system and an 11in touchscreen to control the NissanConnect infotainment unit.

The Track Edition’s power output is also unchanged. That means the 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine pushes out 562bhp and 470lb ft to all four wheels. Official acceleration figures haven’t been published, but our drive of the GT-R Prestige suggested 60mph in around 3.3sec and 100mph in 7.6sec. It certainly won’t be slow.

Prices for the Nissan GT-R Track Edition start at £91,995 and deliveries will begin in early November.

Our Verdict

Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is not a cheap car, but it’s better value for money than cars that are seemingly as fast

Still the best car for the money but it is time Nissan gave us an all new GT-R instead of special editions and upgrades.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
