GT-R enthusiasts should run, not walk, to the Jacob Javits Convention Center from April 14th-23rd to take a look at this vehicle that is slated to be a limited production run. It’s the third trim level of the latest GT-R to be released, following the Premium and NISMO trims that have already debuted. According to the brand, this car lives between the “T” (touring) and “R” (racing) pieces of the Nissan GT-R personality, and it gives drivers a powerful option for the track below the highly-tuned NISMO trim. For instance, the Track Edition vehicle will have the engine of the GT-R Premium trim, which generates 565 horsepower, instead of the bigger NISMO engine that has 600 horsepower. The Nissan GT-R Track Edition will have a more rigid body construction than the Premium trim, which is a better fit for track racing.

According to Nissan, the GT-R Track Edition will be available late this summer with a starting MSRP of $127,990. Stay tuned to The News Wheel to learn more about this trim when it makes its big debut at NYIAS.
