The 2012 model year Nissan GT-R gains a more hardcore Track Pack option

Nissan has announced its new GT-R Track Pack. The 2012 GT-R is one of the most capable cars on the road today and the Track Pack offers even more focus to help the frequent trackday driver reduce lap times. The harder edge comes courtesy of revised track-biased suspension spring rates. Nissan claims the adjustable dampers, which it shares with all GT-Rs, still offer a good level of comfort when the car is being driven on the road. Ducts in the front bumper and behind the rear wheels channel cooling air over the brake discs to reduce operating temperatures and improve stopping performance. Visually, Track Pack equipped cars are distinguished by those brake ducts, fashioned into the front splitter, and a handsome set of lightweight RAYS alloys. Inside, the front Recaros are trimmed with blue bolsters and an innovative ‘high grip’ material designed to hold you firmly in place during spirited driving. The rear seats have been thrown out to save weight and further underline its track intensions. A ‘Track Pack’ emblem sits on the dashboard to remind you that you’re in something a little more special.  The engine is unchanged from the regular 542bhp twin-turbo V6 found in the 2012 GT-R, which means the dash to 60mph takes just 2.7sec - 0.2sec quicker than the ultra light and hardcore Ariel Atom Mugen.  Order books are open now, with deliveries in March. A Nissan GT-R Track Pack costs £84,450, a £10,000 premium over the standard 2012 car. That’s not really bad value when compared with the similarly track-focused (and £125K) GT-R Spec V.  Chris Harris drives the new 2012 Nissan GT-R on video Nissan GT-R Spec V battles M3 GTS, 911 GT3 RS and XKR75
