One of the fastest cars in the world. The 2012 Nissan GT-R is certainly one, but GT-R owners are the most demanding in the world. Nissan has developed a new version of the GT-R for drivers who want an extra edge on the race track. A Track Pack version.
- The 2012 GT-R line-up includes new track-focused edition
- Track Pack Features are designed to improve lap times
- Fully road legal and available to order now
Called ‘Track Pack’, this new version of the GT-R offers a harder edge and yet remains fully road legal.
Externally the Track Pack is easily identified by lightweight six-spoke RAYS alloys with gloss black painted centres. The brakes behind these are cooled by additional cooling ducts built into the front bumper. These reduce the operating temperature of the front brake discs by as much as 100 degrees during track use, improving the stopping performance. Similar ducts, hidden behind the rear wheels, channel cooling air over the rear discs.
To reflect this GT-R’s harder edge, the suspension’s spring rates have been revised to be optimal for track use. Like all GT-Rs though, the dampers are adjustable to offer more comfort when the car is being used on the road.
Internally, Recaro front seats are trimmed with blue bolsters and an innovative high grip material to help keep the driver in place during hard cornering and braking. The rear seats have been removed to save weight. A ‘Track Pack’ emblem on the centre console identifies this model as a special GT-R.
The engine retains the same spec as the ‘regular’ 2012 model GT-R, which means s blinding 550PS of power. The 0-60 mph time is a staggering 2.7 seconds. You can read that again. Awesome…
Already with £74,450 list price for the standard MY2012 GT-R, the Track Pack edition adds a further £10k – making it £84,450.
Orders for all 2012 GT-R’s are being accepted at any one of the 21 Nissan High Performance Centres around the UK. The first deliveries are due in March 2012.
