2012 Nissan GT-R Track Pack does 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds

December 9, 2011

Nissan UK has released details and pricing for the new 2012 Nissan GT-R Track Pack. Nissan reveals that the new model does 0-60mph (97km/h) in 2.7 seconds.

The 2012 Nissan GT-R Track Pack comes with various features which allow it to excel on the track. Features include lightweight RAYS alloy wheels, much more ducting for the brakes, front and rear, which apparently helps to reduce temperatures by 100 degrees, as well as sportier suspension.

Inside, the front passengers get special blue-highlighted Recaro bucket seats covered in high-grip material, while the rear seats are removed completely to help save weight. The centre console also features a ‘Track pack’ logo to further distinguish the edition.

Like all 2012 Nissan GT-R models (MY2013 in the USA), the Track Pack comes with the revised 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 producing 404kW of power and 632Nm of torque. Nissan has revealed that the edition is able to smash 0-60mph in just 2.7 seconds. This could mean a 0-100km/h time of around 2.8 second is possible.

As previously reported, the new model will the market in Australia in March 2012. Prices will start at $170 800 for the normal model (up from $168,800 of the MY2011). Prices in the UK will start at £84,450 for the Track Pack (approximately AU$129,740).
