2014 Nissan GTR Prices and Specs for Track Edition, Black Edition and Premium [Video]
Nissan. Nissan. Nissan. With all the commotion surrounding the 2014 Corvette Stingray and the Porsche 991 911 Turbo, you couldn’t resist coming out with some tantalizing info on your own two-door monster (or should I say Godzilla), the 2014 GTR.
Only instead of just drool-worthy videos of your car being slung around a road with near-reckless abandon or just cold, hard numbers, you give us both. Here we have an exhaust-filled video of the 2014 Nissan GTR Track Edition on the open road posted side-by-side with the 2014 model-year pricing. The carrot and the stick.
The performance, the excitement and the power of a GTR in motion… the carrot. And, a starting price of $99,590 for the GTR Premium, $109,300 for the GTR Black Edition and $115,710 for the GTR Track Edition (plus $1,000 destination charge)… the stick.
Next you’ll tell me that the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition will only be available in limited numbers to the US market. Oh wait, it is. Only 150 examples of the competition-ready Track Edition with its Bilstein DampTronic shocks, carbon fiber spoiler, exclusive black wheels and blue-trimmed interior will hit American shores. Cold, Nissan. That’s cold.
At least I can take comfort is this gallery of GT-R images and in the solace of knowledge provided by Nissan’s press release below.
