2012 Nissan GT-R Club Track Edition – Click above for high-res image gallery

2012 Egoist Nissan GT-R pink interiorWe've got good news for you if you want the skinny on exactly how the 2012 Nissan GT-R will be available when it arrives. The crew over at 2009GTR.com have sourced up the ordering guide for the next Nissan supercar from the North American GT-R Owners Club, and it looks like buyers will be able to pick from a total of six colors. Of those, it's unclear exactly how man that the company will only charge extra for at the moment. Right now 2009GTR.com seems to think that Super Silver will be the only cost-adding hue, though the forums are rife with speculation otherwise. The 2012 GT-R will be available in just two packages, including Premium, which will fetch $89,950 excluding destination and Black, which is expected to land around $95,100.

Options include floor mats, a cold-weather package and a rear view camera, though at this point it's unclear how much Nissan will want for those niceties. One of the most curious additions comes from the car's homeland. Japanese buyers will be able to opt for an Egoist package for the interior that drapes the cabin in red and pink leather as seen above. Let's just say we won't be missing that one in the States. More demure owners can go for grey and red hide.

To each their own, we suppose. There are also a heap of photos of a new JDM-only Club Track Edition, though details are scarce at the moment. Judging from the photos, that machine is a full-on track heathen with a gutted interior, unique dampers, a roll cage and a driver controllable rear differential cooler. Tasty. Sadly, it looks like that particular car isn't headed stateside anytime soon, either.

Head over to 2009GTR.com to have a look at the full order sheet.

      Didn't anyone notice it was an automatic? I thought I idea of a track car was to get the full driving experience and take control of the car. Are we getting that lazy that we can't be bothered with a manual transmission or is this auto box that fantastic that it is better than the manual?
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's a dual-clutch sequential manual transaxle. It has automatic and manual modes, but it's not an automatic (torque converter) transmission. Select forward with the lever, shift with the paddles, and the automated dual clutches shift much faster (as little as 0.2 sec) than a human can row a conventional manual gearbox.

        Thank you mantamanta I did not know that this GT-R had that type of transmission fitted. I knew Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Veyrons and McLaren's had Auto/Manual type transmissions fitted but all of these cars are a lot more expensive than the GT-R. I can afford a brand new GT-R but I am going to build my own track car myself.

        Happy to help. There are many cars with this type of gearbox at far lower price points. VW's DSG is a similar setup, for example.

        The dual clutches are the key. Instead of one clutch engaging and disengaging when you shift to the next gear, a dual-clutch sequential box uses (as its name says) two clutches, each operating on alternating gears (one for 1st, 3rd and 5th, and one for 2nd, 4th and 6th). Assuming a driver shifts in sequence (i.e., without skipping gears, hence the "sequential" part of their name), the system can begin releasing the clutch for the upcoming gear while it's still engaging the one for the outgoing gear. That's why it's so much faster than a conventional manual, and why it is automated (since you'd otherwise need to two clutch pedals).

        Its been a dual clutch automated manual gearbox since 2007(Japan). No move the stick yourself option. You get paddles, which are faster.

        The GT-R is a fast car, faster than its pure horsepower, and weigh numbers would imply. Part of the reason it is so fast, is the gearbox. Its got a bad rep on the internet, but most of that is it being a complicated part, that few dealerships were versed in.

      Ugly as a monkeys butt.

      Is it me or could Nissan not have picked a worse hue of pink? It makes those awful plumped up racing thrones look like piles of fleshy detritus. The quilted texturing doesn't help either....it's almost sickening if you look at it long enough.

      Thank goodness we aren't getting that hideous red interior in the states!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Is that a PINK interior, or just a bad picture?
      • 4 Years Ago
      It just gets better and better, great job!
      • 4 Years Ago
      A white car with a pink/red/black interior..? WTF...
      • 4 Years Ago
      It has LED strips!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Ugh....if anybody actually did some footwork they would see that while yes, although the pictured pinkish and red two tone interior does look pretty bad, there are much nicer shades available. Check it out in all brown and see if it is still so offensive. And personally I think the quilted style is VERY classy.

      That track version looks as serious as any Porsche factory race car. Kill the pink one with fire.
      • 4 Years Ago
      That inteoir doesnt fit the nature of this car...

      Oh yea dont like the colors or design either.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I love it but I still can't get over the Walmart/AutoZone/Advance Auto Parts special led strips on the front. :
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed, the LED strips are abysmal on this car. I will, however, take a pair of those tow hooks.
