The freshly revealed 2017 Nissan GT-R will be getting a Track Edition trim level.

According to GTRLife, the new Track Edition will be an updated version of the previous GT-R NISMO model that was sold in Japan and Europe in 2015.

Four trim levels will be offered in total with the new revised 2017 GT-R: the base Pure Edition, the comfort-focused Premium trim, the NISMO high-performance model and the Track Edition, which will sit between the Premium and NISMO when it comes to performance.

Based on the Premium trim, the Track Edition will come with a titanium exhaust, the same suspension setup found in the NISMO model, 6-spoke black NISMO wheels and all of the upgrades that came to every 2017 model, including a stiffer chassis and a more powerful 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine now delivering 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque.

That means that the Track Edition will be down about 35 hp compared to the NISMO model, while the only other major difference is that the GT-R NISMO gets upgraded aerodynamics.

On the inside, the new Track Edition will pack red accent stitching along and Recaro seats. According to GTRlife, this will be the only model to feature this Recaro interior in the U.S.

The Track Edition is expected to start between $116,000 and $118,000, which will likely end up being about a $40,000 savings compared to the more powerful NISMO model.
