The limited-run 2018 Nissan GT-R Track Edition has been revealed for the US market ahead of the New York motor show next week, along with a one-off Copzilla police car.

GT-R Track Edition

Joining the 370Z Heritage Edition, the latest GT-R Track Edition (top) sits between the GT-R Premium and the flagship GT-R Nismo, and features numerous Nismo components.

Headlining features include additional adhesive bonding to increase body shell rigidity, four-wheel independent suspension with Nismo tuning, Nismo-spec tyres, 20-inch Nismo alloy wheels, carbon-fibre rear spoiler, a unique red and black interior colour scheme and leather-appointed Recaro sports seats.

The fresh look inside and out of 2017 GT-R Premium and GT-R NISMO models is present in the new GT-R Track Edition. Highlights include the redesigned hood and front bumper, Daytime Running Lights, and matte chrome finish “V-motion” grille, one of Nissan’s prominent design signatures.

Under the bonnet is the same 419kW/632Nm twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 as the GT-R Premium, mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters.

No performance figures are quoted, so it's likely the Track Edition retains the 2.7-second 0-100km/h sprint claim and top speed of 315km/h.


GT-R 'Copzilla'

Meanwhile, Nissan has also created a stylised police car based on the GT-R, which it has appropriately named 'Copzilla'.

Sporting a matte-black police livery for the 'Skyline Metro Police Department', Copzilla features contrasting gold stripes, proper police lights on the roof and front grille, a scrolling LED light bar, along with 'Skyline Metro' badges on the bonnet and door panels.


Adjustable coilover suspension has been installed to give the vehicle a 'stanced' look, while the GT-R's standard wheels have been replaced with 22-inch units, complete with spikes, that imitate the look of steel.

Copzilla's heart is the same powerplant as the 'standard' GT-R, which is a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 pumping out 419kW of power and 632Nm of torque.

Both the GT-R Track Edition and GT-R Copzilla will be on display at the New York motor show, which kicks off on April 14.



The Nissan GT-R Track Edition is already on sale in Australia, priced from $227,000 before on-road costs. Read our full pricing and specs article here
