Nissan GT-R Track Edition

Japanese manufacturer Nissan is wasting any time and to prove it they have developed several models especially to present at the Chicago Auto Show. One of the models we will talk about now is the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition, which is the third and most exclusive model in the 2014 GT-R lineup. The engineers have provided a specially tuned suspension, special brake cooling guides, front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts and also a lightweight quilted cloth mat where the rear seats usually reside. The carmaker planned to offer it for sale a certain GT-R certified Nissan dealerships nationwide starting in May 2013. Apparently, the model will be built as a limited edition so only 150 units will see the light of the day. The 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition was developed to enable drivers who enjoy even more demanding high-performance driving than the extreme performance of the 2012 Nissan GT-R Premium and Black Edition models.

The modifications made for the Track Edition include specialized Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers and higher spring rates. A lot of the suspension development process took place in Nurburgring, one of the most challenging racing circuits. The air guides for the front and rear brakes were also refined through strict track testing. Other updates include the adoption of new fuel injectors for enhanced torque response and improved throttle and acceleration feel at mid- and high-rpm ranges. The engineers have also added oil pressure under high performance driving conditions.

The model receives power from a VR38DETT V6 engine capable of generating 545 horsepower and 463 lb. ft. of torque. To transfer the output to the wheels, the model uses an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission, which can be driver selected to shift and high speeds. The engineers also offer as standard high performance differential oil used in GT-R motor sports competition.
