THE eagerly-anticipated Track Edition version of the Nissan GT-R is at last available to British enthusiasts with deliveries expected to start in November.

As the name implies, this twin-turbo engined, four wheel drive beast been specifically engineered for thrill-seeking track enthusiasts by Nissan's motorsport division.

Although it shares the same engine and drivetrain as its cheaper siblings, it's designed to deliver a higher level of performance than the standard GT-R.

It will set enthusiasts back a hefty £91,995 - a lot of money, certainly, but a relatively cheap price for a 196mph supercar which will accelerate from rest to 60mph in a mere 2.7 seconds.

The Track Edition sits above the Premium, Prestige and Black Edition in the model line-up, but below the flagship GT-R NISMO.

Performance modifications include a bespoke, raced-tuned Bilstein Damptronic® suspension set-up designed to optimise straight-line and cornering stability. A new lightweight anti-roll bar has also been added to increase body stiffness and reduce weight.

Black forged 20-inch aluminium wheels and tyres are part of the GT-R Track Edition package, in addition to a wider front bumper and a carbon spoiler. Inside, the Track Edition shares its black and red Recaro seats with the GT-R Black Edition. A boot lid made from carbon and carbon-backed seats are optional extras.

The GT-R Track Edition is based on the 2017 model year GT-R which was first unveiled at the New York Motor Show earlier this year.

Power comes from a hand-assembled, 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 developing 570PS and 637Nm of torque mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
