Ready for another Nissan GT-R iteration? In April, Nissan said it would be working with third parties to set up a driving club that would offer members track-ready Godzillas, and this is apparently the result: the Track Club Edition GT-R, a product of the minds at Nissan, NISMO, NOVA Engineering in Shizuka and Nordring tuning in Saitama, Japan.

A Japan-only endeavor, the umbrella organization is called The Prestige Club of GT-R, and to run in it will require a cave-full of yen: the car itself is ¥10,479,000 ($120,725 U.S.); membership in The Prestige Club membership is ¥2 million ($23,024 U.S.) and annual dues are a further ¥1 million ($11,513 U.S.). For all of that you get the special GT-R, a race number and inclusion in two race days and an annual gathering.

As for the racer itself, performance upgrades include new ECM, traction control, ABS and VCD programming, two-way adjustable Bilstein dampers and revised upper front links, a front lip spoiler, NACA duct and brake air guides among other things. Inside, there's a four-point harness with a six-point retention system available over a Bride Gardis III seat, automatic fire suppression system and NISMO data logging kit. The twin-turbo motor puts out in excess of 493 horsepower and 434 pound-feet, and the package rides on 20-inch Rays Forged Aluminum wheels from the SpecM shod with Dunlop Direzza Long Life Slicks. If you're going to be in Japan and want in on the series, applications are being accepted until September 20. Check out GT-R World at the links below for more images and information. Thanks to everyone for the tips!

      How fast is this one going to lap the N-ring, Nissan? 5:00 flat? You don't say....

      For that kind of scratch, they should at least give you 6 races and a points championship. If you win a race, you get a $10K refund. If you win the points title, you get the car for free! Ok, so that is not likely to happen, but it would be so much more interesting!

        I was thinking they ought to throw in an annual set of tires for track day. But I like your idea better...

      Cool. For the three ex-F1 civilians who are capable of driving this beast, drive on.

      Maaaaaan...what's up with the NISMO Z-Tune GT-R?! Frankly, that's ONLY GT-R iteration I'm waiting for and would get excited about. These "minor-revision" GT-Rs are inflating the price tag and maybe the heads of the owners, but they don't seem to be doing much in the way of performance enhancements. Those Rays wheels are hideous by the way! I could present at least 5 light-weight aftermarket-performance wheels that would blow these away. Anyway, I figure for the same scratch, one could do alot more in the power, suspension, and weight-saving departments.

      I could be wrong though...

      No word on any weight loss?

      Always looks good

      Do you get a special members only discount on the $20,000 transmission that will likely blow up every other track day?
