Nissan has released its pricing for the model-year 2014 GT-R, including the new Track Edition of Godzilla. The 2014 Nissan GT-R Premium will now command an MSRP of $99,590, while the Black Edition will go for $109,300 and the new Track Edition will ask $115,710 (*not including a $1,000 destination and handling charge for all models).

Nissan calls the GT-R Track Edition its most exclusive model, which makes sense as it will be limited to just 150 examples for the US market. The competition-ready Track Edition gets Bilstein DampTronic shocks and revised spring rates; all chosen after more development work by Nissan engineers at the Nürburgring. (Good work, if you can get it.) A carbon fiber rear spoiler and six-spoke black wheels come with the package, as do blue-trimmed, high-grip front seats inside. To save weight, the car's rear seats have been deleted in this model.

About the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition
The 2014 model year features the introduction of a third and most exclusive model – the GT-R Track Edition. This new model is designed to take Nissan's legendary 545-horsepower street supercar even closer to a pure motorsports competition machine.**

It features a specially tuned suspension, special brake cooling guides, front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts and a lightweight quilted cloth mat where the rear seats usually reside. Production of the GT-R Track Edition is limited to 150 cars for the U.S. market.

Changes to the GT-R's sophisticated 4-wheel independent suspension for the Track Edition include specialized Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers and higher spring rates. Much of the 2014 GT-R's suspension development took place on the Nürburgring, one of the world's most challenging racing circuits**, where the Track Edition damping force and handling benchmarks were further refined by GT-R development driver Toshio Suzuki. The Track Edition's air guides for the front and rear brakes were also refined through rigorous track testing.

In the interior, the new GT-R Track Edition includes special blue-trimmed high-grip front seats that use a special leather and fabric appointments. Finishing off the GT-R Track Edition's special features are a handmade, lightweight dry carbon fiber rear spoiler and special metallic black six-spoke RAYS® forged lightweight wheels mounted with Dunlop® SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT ultra high performance run-flat nitrogen-filled tires. Both the wheels and spoiler are also offered on the Black Edition. The rear spoiler's lightweight GT-R specific dry carbon fiber material*** is also incredibly strong, contributing to increased aerodynamic downforce.

      Oh, goodie. 4k worth of suspension and a seat removal you can do yourself for a 15k markup. A bargain, certainly.

      I love how the price slowly creeps up each year. I guess it's no longer the "budget super car".

        This is made in Japan. The inflation of the yen vs US dollar is what really has inflated the price over the last few years. They didnt just add $10,000 each year because they felt like it.

        Man you are such an idiot. Not only the inflation of the yen increased dramatically, but the car is updated every year. This is the most updated car on the market. Something that is common place in the motorcycle world is happening to a car for the first time and is somewhat affordable.

      Still 911 S money for 911 Turbo obliterating performance. The 911 is obsolete.

        That's why the 911 outsells the GT-R 9 to 1, right?

          If we are looking at it that way, McDonalds has the world's best hamburger, and Applebee's is the best restaurant you can possibly dine at. More =/= Better.

        Turbo S is much more luxurious and refined. More of a GT car than a track focused car.

        Apples to oranges there Wayne, the whole porsche brand doesn't mean sh*t vs. the GTR as the Cayenne and Panamera likely did much of the heavy lifting. Get the 911s sales figure.. Then compare.. If we were to (by your definition) bring the Altima and Pathfinder in here.. Their monthly sales would make Porsche look piddling.

      I'd rather get a 911. Better interior, better badge, better looks, less computer-like.

        911's have just become too slow, Though they are still the ultimate drivers cars; depending on driving dynamics, the C7 might be the better option
        Bernard
        • 1 Year Ago
        @FIDTRO
        The 911 is slow. If you don't want computers their are better options than a 911 which has plenty of nannies to keep it's rear engined weight bias in check.
          k_m94
          • 1 Year Ago
          @Bernard
          Incorrect. The 991 still drives well and displays little of the typical 911 ass heavy awkward handling with all the nannies off. Most of the improvements to keep the heavy rear in check were mechanical or structural, such as wider track, revised suspension, shorter overhangs, longer wheelbase, etc. Also, the 911 Carrera S can do 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, hardly slow at all.

        @protovici
        I still like the car, I just can't afford a new one even more so now. I think most people like a lot of cars they can't afford. If they didn't what would be the point to making supercars.

          @mitytitywhitey
          The GTR was sold as a "I might be able to realistically afford one if I'm successful" kind of car, just like the Corvette, Cayman, and Boxter. Could a responsible person with a decent paycheck hope to own a $50k-$75k sports car one day? Sure, but $100k pushes this car out of reach for dreamers such as myself. From my understanding Nissan isn't setting these prices so high by choice. The value of the Yen has had a huge impact on the price of Godzilla.

          @mitytitywhitey
          Meaning price point with performance and other accolades. Such as the ZO6, GT500. I guess you must define a super car and a GTR is not a super car.
      k_m94
      • 1 Year Ago
      The reason that the GTR's price has ballooned from $70k all the way up to $110k is mostly due to inflation of the Yen relative to the Dollar. Still, its price is on par for what you'd at least have to pay for a similarly performing Corvette ZR1 or Viper. Not to mention, the first R35 GTR had 480hp, a shitty launch control that devoured its own transmission, and would do 0-60 in about 3.5 seconds. The newest GTR has an extra 65hp, a chassis and transmission that's been improved upon each year, and a properly fantastic launch control that can do 0-60 quicker than any road car save for a PDK equipped 911 Turbo S or a Bugatti Veyron, which are only a tenth or two quicker. Of course, issues still persist: It looks the exact same as it did in 2008, which is far from pretty, it's still plenty harsh and noisy, does most of the driving for you (could be a good or bad thing), and it attracts some of the most annoying fanboys and haters on the internet. Still a fantastic car, whether you like it or not.

      Skip the track edition, just buy a regular GT-R and for the $15K difference, your local tuner shop can boost the hell out of this thing.

      I'm WELL aware of how awesome the GT-R is and has been, but I'd be pretty hard-pressed to spend Audi R8 (among other things) money for one...
