Is the 2011 Nissan GT-R not hardcore enough for you? Too civilized, you say? Well, if you live in Japan and share those sentiments, you can opt for the stripped “Club Track Edition” that’s being developed by Nismo in association with notable Japanese racing outfitters Nova Engineering and Nordring.
According to Nismo’s website, the likely lighter and stiffer Godzilla (officials specs have yet to be released) arrives late July with a full roll cage and nearly no comfort amenities.
Six-point racing harnesses, Hans-compliant Bride (pronounced, “brid”) buckets, and 20-inch Rays forged wheels from the Club Sport/SpecV can be seen from the announcement images as well. The lightweight alloys are wrapped in sticky racing slicks for supreme grip on any smooth track.
Once final tuning is complete, expect a few major changes to the adjustable Bilstein suspension to be included too. No word on if any engine modifications are scheduled.
Nissan wants owners of the track-only GT-Rs to enjoy them as part of its official driver’s club. Expect more details and images closer to the car’s official release date.
If you could, would you buy one?
