When Nissan launched the new 2013 GT-R, they also released minor details on an additional Track Pack model that would add an "an extra edge on the race track." Now, Nissan has finally offered up the official details on this racing package, including the fact that it is already available for order. Customers on the British market will need to tack on an extra £10,000 ($15,600 at the current rates) to the £74,450 ($116,150 at the current rates) price tag of the standard GT-R, for a grand total of £84,450 ($131,750 at the current rates).
The new Track pack version will be distinguished by lightweight six-spoke RAYS alloy wheels with gloss black painted centers. The new wheels will be combined with brakes 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. The suspension system has also been revised to be optimal for track use, while adjustable dampers offer more comfort when the car is being used on the road.
This will be one of the lightest GT-R models offered due to the fact that it comes in a two-seat configuration: the rear buckets have been removed to save weight and the front seats have been replaced with lighter Recaro racing seats trimmed with blue bolsters in a high-grip fabric.
