The new Nissan GT-R Track Edition made its U.S. debut today at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show showcasing a vehicle that’s as close to a competition spec vehicle as you can get.

The GT-R Track Edition is specially designed for drivers who like to wring out every bit of performance out of a car, and features no excess weight or luxuries. It has no back seat, a stiffer suspension setup, better bolstered seats and additional brake cooling, all perfect changes for those who plan on taking the 545-hp GT-R to its limits.

Thanks to vigorous testing at the famous Nurburgring test track in Germany, the GT-R Track Edition gets special Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers as well as higher spring rates. The Track Edition’s additional brake cooling were also refined through track testing.

Inside, the new GT-R Track Edition features blue-trimmed racing-style front seats that use special leather and fabric.

Finally, the GT-R Track Edition’s has a handmade, lightweight dry carbon fiber rear spoiler, as well as lightweight, metallic RAYS wheels with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600 DSST CTT tires.

Only 150 examples of the GT-R Track Edition will be offered starting in May of this year, and will be available in five exterior colors: Deep Blue Pearl, Jet Black, Solid Red, Gun Metallic and Pearl White.

Nissan also detailed some of the changes that all 2014 GT-Rs will have, like improved throttle response in the mid-to-high rpm ranges thanks to new fuel injectors, and an oil pan baffle which will help stabilize oil pressure under high performance driving conditions. Also, all engines will feature an aluminum nameplate bearing the name of the craftsman who built that individual engine.

I'd have to agree about those truck-like style wheels.

I wonder if the design for low weight and strength using carbon fiber demands certain limitations otherwise. It sure seems they could have done a lot better in looks and at the same time use a less is more concept. It looks like the facia is a direct air dam for the brakes and that's probably a Must. The wheels look like they inhibit ventilation.

As much as the GT-R rates and performs, it's the one car I hear many drivers/owners admit the body style and looks is something they settle for. I'd be in the same camp although the front clip is not the problem IMO.

I don't like the wheels either, but I definitely don't think the looks of the gtr is something to settle for- one of the best looking cars ever, IMO.

Going by looks of the car / body style, a Jag XKR or an Aston DBS or Vantage would pretty up my Valentines Day but I'd rather not have either in red.
