The 2020 Nissan GT-R Track Edition holds a unique place in GT-R lineup. It is designed to deliver a higher level of performance than the GT-R Premium model – featuring many elements of the flagship GT-R NISMO – yet it is not as extreme as the ultimate NISMO model, as well as having a lower price.
For the 2020 model year, the GT-R Track Edition ventures closer to GT-R NISMO territory than ever with the addition of the latter’s revised 600-horsepower engine, a new carbon fiber roof panel, available carbon ceramic brakes and more.
The 2020 GT-R Track Edition’s hand-assembled twin-turbo VR38DETT 3.8-liter V6 engine features newly redesigned turbochargers from the latest GT3 series GT-R race car. This results in a 20% increase in pedal-down acceleration reaction time, along with the 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. Optional on the GT-R Track Edition are special Brembo carbon ceramic rotors and calipers. The standard Titanium exhaust system features new burnished exhaust finisher tips for 2020.
The GT-R Track Edition’s refined powerplant is backed by an advanced paddle-shifted sequential 6-speed dual clutch transmission, which can be driver selected to shift at race car-like speeds. In addition, the NISMO-tuned 4-wheel independent suspension receives unique NISMO tuning – retuned for 2020 – with reduced weight and additional roll stiffness. As in previous years, the Track Edition’s performance is enhanced through use of additional adhesive bonding (in addition to spot welding), which helps increase body shell rigidity versus the GT-R Premium models.
Other unique equipment includes GT-R NISMO front fenders, 20-inch NISMO forged aluminum-alloy wheels and dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler2. Inside, the Track Edition interior includes a unique red and black color treatment of the leather-appointed high-grip, motorsports-inspired Recaro® front bucket seats. The instrument panel layout includes just 11 switches, along with an 8-inch capacitive touch panel monitor. The Bose® audio sound system features Active Noise Cancellation and Active Sound Enhancement technologies to help filter out unwanted noise and retain excitement during spirited driving.
