CHICAGO — The 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition, an extreme third model in the GT-R lineup, debuted on Thursday at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.

The GT-R Track Edition, which brings the car closer to a competition spec vehicle, is set to go on sale in the U.S. in May.

Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

The 545-horsepower GT-R Track Edition features a specially tuned suspension, special brake cooling guides, a front spoiler with carbon-fiber air ducts and no backseat. Other special features include a handmade, lightweight dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler and metallic black six-spoke RAYS forged lightweight wheels with Dunlop ultra-high-performance run-flat nitrogen-filled tires.

Production will be limited to 150 cars for the U.S.

The Track Edition's suspension was tuned at the Nurburgring Circuit by GT-R development driver Toshio Suzuki. Changes to the suspension include Bilstein DampTronic gas pressure shock absorbers and higher spring rates.

The cabin of the Track Edition gets blue-trimmed high-grip front seats. The instrument panel gets a video game-inspired multifunction display.

The GT-R Track Edition comes in Deep Blue Pearl, Jet Black, Solid Red, Gun Metallic and Pearl White.

Edmunds says: Nissan says when it comes to GT-R performance "there is no endpoint."

    Minor upgrades but will translate to major $$$, Nissan is following the Porsche's foot steps with Special Edition models that cost more than the sum of all its parts. Just look what Nissan is charging for the new "hand stitched" red leather front seats, etc...for $4000. I can have a upholstery shop in LA cover the interior of the GTR in red leather for around $2000.
