After news of a track-only GT-R surfaced several months ago, Nissan has now released their 2011 GT-R Club Track Edition, a collaboration of several brilliant minds in Japan. Nissan teamed up with NISMO, Nova Engineering and Nordring for this special edition GT-R that’s only available to members of The Prestige Club of GT-R.
Specific race components are utilized on this track edition GT-R, focusing on the fact that it’s not entirely made as a dual-purpose daily driver. NISMO prefers if owners keep the car strictly for track use due to its extensive modifications which include an automatic fire suppression system, 2-way adjustable Bilstein dampers, and custom ECM, TCM, ABS / VCD upgrades on the management side.
On the outside, a front lip spoiler and under cover have been added along with a set of 20-inch Rays Forged Aluminum wheels with a staggered setup – 9.5 width with 45 offset in the front and 10.5 width with 25 offset in the rear. The rubber of choice for the track edition vehicle are Dunlop Direzza Long Life Slicks.
The car is rated at “over” 493-hp and 434 ft-lbs of torque. It also carries quite the price premium. The vehicle itself is a little over $120,000 but also requires a membership to The Prestige Club of GT-R which is around $23,000 per year. The membership gives you your own car number, two official track meets and entry to their annual get together. Renewal is cheaper at half the price, around $11,500.
Memberships are now open from now until September 20th.
