Club Track Edition

The Club Track Edition is a circuit only version (although it was possible to make it in to a street car with some minor modifications). This R35 GT-R was designed specifically for the track, so that owners could fully embrace the performance of the vehicle. The GT-R development team worked with several third parties to perform the modifications to the vehicle for it to become a Club Track Edition. These companies include NISMO Omori Factory, Nova Engineering and NordRing in Japan.

To purchase the vehicle meant joining the Prestige Club of GT-R. This cost 1,000,000 yen up front and an annual cost of 2,000,000 yen (increasing in the final year). An entity called Authorized Servicefactory Association was created to oversee the club.

In additon, vehicles must be stored on consignment with the Authorized Servicefactory Association, at an annual cost of 1,000,000 yen (increasing in the final year).

Content included in the contract include:
- Vehicle storage and maintenance (vehicle inspection before and after circuit driving).
- Replacement of consumable parts (slick tire, brake rotor, brake pad) free of charge once a year / club vehicle transportation to the event (Club Cup Race).

The Authorized Servicefactory Association also ran the Nissan GT-R Prestige Cup. This was a racing series for owners of the Club Track Edition to participate in. Many of these races were conducted before the Japanese Grand Touring Championship events. This was paid for by the fees of being a member of the Prestige Club of GT-R (which was a requirement). In 2013 there was 6 races.

Finally, owners could join the Racing School Program. The Racing School Program held racing schools and with one-on-one training by professional drivers. The cost was 2,000,000 per year. For this you received:
- 4 race races held annually / show at NISMO festival.
- Providing a driving skill improvement program based on individual lessons tailored to the skills of the participants.
- Providing a racing skill improvement program using data loggers, in-vehicle images, GPS, etc. for acquiring racing skills from basic to advanced.
- Provide a race simulation program each time.
- Providing a vehicle setup skill improvement program based on automotive engineering.
- Toshio Suzuki, who is a development driver for NISSAN GT-R, Motoki Moriwaki, NISMO contract driver, etc., will teach each program.
- Providing a special technical lesson program with full cooperation of the NISSAN GT-R development team, led by Mr. Kazutoshi Mizuno, the development manager.
- Show at the NISMO Festival (since 2011).

The program and vehicles modifications changed slightly over its run from 2011 to 2013. The original program documentation and a couple of demo cars shows a CBA MY11 (USA model year) car however the customer cars are DBA (MY12 USA) R35 GT-Rs.

Club Track Edition Production

Roll cage painted same colour as vehicle.
The bonnet and trunk lid can be opened and closed from the outside in the event of an emergency, so the bonnet pin (fastener) is installed without the standard function.
This is an automatic fire extinguisher for when there is an emergency. Nozzles for spraying fire extinguishing agents are installed in the engine bay (4 places) and interior (2 places), and various piping is installed. The blue part is the spray nozzle.
On the undercarriage, the shock absorber and front upper link are replaced, and the brake air guide is installed.
In addition to roll cages, a new steering wheel, bucket seats, heat insulation to protect the feet are installed to the interior.
In addition, a circuit-only vehicle is completed with cooling parts and lap sensors. The completed vehicle will be checked on the circuit after alignment, and delivered to the customer.
