While a lot of fanbois on here can't seem to get over a simple fact, the Nissan GT-R is all that and a bag of chips.

Sorry, folks. Its performance is unprecedented for the initial outlay of cash.

Even when Nissan has consistently jacked up the price over the years, it STILL is a monumental performer besting MOST supercars. That's just a fact.

Now Nissan has announced that a limited run GT-R Track Edition will be making its debut. Only 150 units will be shipped stateside. That's probably a good thing since GT-Rs don't exactly overrun the market.

Think of this GT-R in the same vein as the Porsche 911 GT3. It's a more focused driver's ride and it lacks the back seat. But this is only the start as Nissan is prepping an even more hardcore GT-R, the NISMO edition.

You can think of that as the Porsche GT2 RS, I'd guess...

The GT-R Track Edition is on sale NOW at dealers starting at $115,710.
