The 2014 version of Nissan GT-R makes it American debut at the Chicago Auto Show, boasting a Track Edition package that makes the Japanese super car competition-ready. The new GT-R has the same power as before, but it’s a bit stiffer, a bit lighter, and a bit sharper.

The Track Edition does not make that big a difference when you are driving normally, but it should pay dividends on track days, enabling you to outrun the standard GT-Rs.

Main highlights of the GT-R Track Edition include a specially tuned suspension, special brake cooling guides, front spoiler with carbon fiber air ducts and a lightweight quilted cloth mat where you’d normally find the rear seat. So it’s now less of a grocery-getter, and more of a performance-minded track machine.

The suspension they used in this car features Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers and its spring rates have been tuned at the Nurburgring. As mentioned you don’t get any more power than before – which is fine, as you have 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque to play with – but the whole thing is now more immediate and sharper, so it should feel a bit faster.

Production of Nissan GT-R Track Edition for America is limited to 150 units. You can have the it in five exterior colors: Deep Blue Pearl, Jet Black, Solid Red, Gun Metallic and Pearl White.
