Nissan’s Higher Performance Centres are now taking deliveries of £84,450 hardcore Nissan GT-R ‘Track Pack’. There are twenty-two specialist Nissan Dealers across the UK who are trained and equipped to sell and service the GT-R.
Nissan GT-R ‘Track Pack’ was designed for the more enthusiastic hardcore buyer’s who wanted a more track focused GT-R, yet retaining Nissan’s full warranty and the need to met ‘road legal’ legislation. Not surprisingly Kazutoshi Mizuno the GT-R chief engineer has given the ‘Track Pack’ his full blessing.
The Nissan GT-R ‘Track Pack’ is no quicker than the standard GT-R - 0-62 time is still 2.8 seconds and the power output remains 550PS – so what has changed?
Firstly thing is that you will have to leave the children behind - GT-R ‘Track Pack’ loses the rear-seats but gains two track-ready front sports seats covered in special blue-on-grey sports seats made from fabric and leather. The high friction fabric has been designed to stick the occupants to the seats during hard cornering and braking.
Ultimately it focused on the modifying the suspension to optimise track performance. The set-up is harder and body rigidity has been increased – the dampers can be adjusted to road-use at the flick of a switch which is great news for UK drivers. Incidentally the Nissan GT-R ‘Track Pack’ is only available to UK and Japanese owners.Published 26 April 2012
