When it comes to the best sports cars, each company works hard to find the right engine and design that really makes the car come alive. For Nissan, its flagship #GT-R model that recently appeared in March has already been a top seller, thanks to its sleek design and exhilarating drive. This car has shown such incredible success that Nissan has recently unveiled a new Track Edition which further tweaks the car to provide better sport performance.
The Track Edition was designed by Nissan’s NISMO racing division, which excels in developing race ready cars. The crew managed to fit in some more horsepower and improved stability. The engine is a hand-assembled 3.8-1 twin-turbo beast that power out 562 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, surpassing the engine in other GT-R models. This provides the best in acceleration and speed.
To make this extra power go as far as possible, Nissan altered the design in order to make it as aerodynamic as possible, minimizing the impact of any wind. The straight-line stability and cornering ability has been adjusted to keep the car on the ground when making the tight turns found on many roads or tracks. Nissan also installed bespoke Bilstein Damptronic suspension and an anti-roll bar which stiffens up the car but ensures the it stays on the road. After all, what is the point being able to go fast if it isn’t safe?
This GT-R track version will first be exclusively available in Europe, but Nissan has plans to transition that market to America at dealerships like Cardinale Nissan. If you are in the market for a new sports car, come test drive the Nissan GT-R in any of its forms for a unique driving experience.
