Offering an even more intense - and exclusive -- driving experience than the Premium and Black Edition models, the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition made its first appearance in Chicago. Due to arrive in select GT-R certified dealers this May, the Track Edition will be limited to just 150 copies for the U.S.

Aimed at taking the already quite formidable 545-horsepower all-wheel-drive supercar to near race-spec status, the Nissan GT-R Track Edition plays a well-calculated game of addition and subtraction. It starts with a retuned suspension that includes higher spring rates and special Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers, a combination that was thoroughly evaluated at the fabled Nürburgring circuit in Germany.  A custom front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts and unique front/rear brake cooling guides round out the exterior/chassis tweaks. The GT-R's cabin gains new high-grip materials on its front seating surfaces but jettisons the modestly-scaled rear perches in favor of a weight-saving quilted-cloth mat.

Available in five colors -- Deep Blue Pearl, Jet Black, Solid Red, Gun Metallic and Pearl White -- the new GT-R Track Edition rides on metallic-black six-spoke RAYS forged lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in nitrogen-filled Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT ultra-high-performance run-flat tires and features a handmade, lightweight dry carbon fiber rear spoiler. These high-performance elements are also available on the GT-R Black Edition.

In presenting the vehicle, Pierre Loing, vice president, Product and Advanced Planning and Strategy, Nissan Americas, indicated there's more good news in the pipeline. "The new Track Edition sends the message that when it comes to Nissan GT-R performance, there is no endpoint. We will continue to push its development and keep the competition in the rearview mirror. The legend continues." So far, no word on what the 150 lucky buyers will have to shell out to own their individual pieces of the legend.
