Track Edition GT-R takes key elements coming from the range-topping GT-R Nismo along with also offers them at a more affordable cost Another Nissan GT-R? Aye. although bear with me, of which one’s worth mentioning. There are those, of which seems, for whom a conventional 542bhp Nissan GT-R isn’t quite enough, yet who think of which a 592bhp GT-R Nismo can be a bit too much. of which, the Nissan GT-R Track Edition engineered by Nismo, can be for those people.Actually, of which does make sense; there can be a gap betwixt the two types – the regular along with also extreme – into which of which edition neatly slots. A ‘base’ GT-R costs £78,030; the Nismo, as a result of its more special engine, carbon fibre-heavy Internal along with also aero-outside, costs a not inconsiderable £125,000. The Track Edition takes some of the bits of the Nismo to position itself somewhere between the two. At £88,560, of which retains the regular GT-R’s twin-turbo V6 along with also its 542bhp along with also 466lb ft outputs, along with also retains the regular Internal, too, although of which gets the Nismo’s suspension upgrades along with also some amendments to the Centeng – not aerodynamic addenda, you understand, although of which receives bonding on its Centeng to supplement spot-welds, as the Nismo does, to stiffen the shell.The suspension can be pure GT-R Nismo, with three-stage adjustable Bilstein dampers, a hollow rear anti-roll bar, Nismo wishbone links at the front, along with also high-rigidity bolts to stiffen the suspension around the wheel hub. The idea behind all of of which can be greater wheel control along with also better stability, both in a straight line along with also during extreme cornering. There are Nismo-spec wheels along with also tyres, too.All GT-Rs are ballistically fast both in a straight line along with also around corners – of which’s pretty much the USP – although while the Track Edition does all of which too, of which also fills a worthwhile, hitherto unfilled slot within the line-up. You don’t lose much over the regular GT-R – except having to part with more money. of which gives very little, if anything, away to the base car in terms of comfort along with also everyday usability. The ride can be, for a car of of which ilk, acceptably pliant. along with also while the underlying ride might be a bit more unsettled than usual, of which’s never harsh. There’s a bit more tramlining over bad surfaces (of which, you’ll have noticed, there are quite a few within the UK) than I remember coming from my last outing in a road-going GT-R. although you can tell there’s genuinely deft wheel control going on underneath you; real first-rate sort of stuff.Perhaps the unsprung weight, thanks to the 20in Rays forged aluminium wheels, can be reduced over of which of the standard GT-R. of which’s got of which sort of light-on-its-feet feel, which can be pretty impressive given of which of which’s a 1740kg car.although roads – despite the hefty kerb weight – aren’t genuinely the GT-R Track Edition’s bag. of which’s so uninterested in them of which regardless of what the speed limit can be, of which’ll get to of which along with also maintain of which without having to roll up its sleeves an inch.of which’ll cope with beaten B-roads, where of which steers keenly, nibbling at cambers along with also crests along with also dips, while the engine whooshes you along on a barrow-load of torque, delivered to all four wheels via its unnoticeably smooth six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. although of which’s not genuinely built for of which sort of thing. of which’s wide along with also long along with also you’d be more in tune with the surface in a Porsche Cayman. The GT-R can be made for countries with flat roads along with also no pedestrians, or big racetracks of which cars with lots of power relish.within the absence of the former, we took the Track Edition to the test track we use most often along with also hooned of which around ‘the corner’, along with also of which’s places like of which, rather than on the road, where you discover the GT-R’s magic. of which corners like very little else. In, say, an Aston Martin Vantage, you’d trail the brakes in to settle the nose, get back on the power along with also your exit angle could depend on your enthusiasm. The GT-R can be happy to be trailed in on the brakes like of which, although of which’s far coming from essential, along with also with the reapplication of throttle, of which just settles down at the rear along with also fires you outwards at a lick you can’t comprehend. of which steers well – quick along with also well weighted – although everything happens so fast of which before you’ve genuinely figured out what of which’s doing along with also where of which’s apportioning power, the steering wheel can be straightening in your hands, the speedo can be gaining numbers faster than you can read them along with also you’re out of the bend.As a piece of technical wizardry, to sit along with also admire coming from behind the wheel, of which GT-R can be like little else having a number plate.Sure, because there’s more to of which than just of which speed. The perception of GT-Rs can be of which they’re a bit clinical, a bit digitised. I can see how of which viewpoint comes about. of which’s technically so impressive along with also so downright fast of which of which can, arguably, lack a little organic ‘something’ at lower speeds – a livelier engine note, or more naturally feelsome steering, for example. To appreciate the Track Edition at its best, you genuinely do need to be driving of which a bit like something can be on fire. although the GT-R – certainly in of which Track Edition form – also gives you options when you get near its limits on a circuit. You can make of which corner how you want of which to, of which absorbs more punishment than a 1740kg car has any right to along with also of which gains more traction, stopping power along with also grip coming from its four contact patches than anything of which side of, well, a full-on Nismo GT-R.The more time you spend finding out about of which, the more time you can spend chipping away at a cornering line to discover what of which’ll do next along with also the more compelling of which becomes. Okay, of which doesn’t offer the full Nismo experience, although the Track Edition, if you can’t go all the way to the big one, can be currently the GT-R of choice.Nissan GT-R Track Edition engineered by NismoEngine V6, 3799cc, twin-turbo, petrol; Power 542bhp at 6400rpm; Torque 466lb ft at 3200-5800rpm; 0-62mph 2.7sec; Top Speed 196mph; Kerb weight 1740kg; Gearbox 6-spd dual-clutch automatic; Economy 23.9mpg (combined); CO2 275g/km, 37%
