|Track Edition seats. Yes it has blue trim.|
Other elements include modified Bilsteins, stiffer springs (20 percent so, says Nissan), six-spoke RAYS forged-aluminum wheels, grippy fabric-covered front seats, and front and rear brake-cooling air channels, as well as front and rear spoilers fashioned from carbon fiber. The Track Edition is also less influenced by gravitational forces than is the “base” model, to the tune of 33 pounds. Otherwise, this version sports the same horsepower and torque, same gearing, same tires, and so on. So the big question is does the Track Edition merit a tariff that’s a chunky $16K steeper than the “base” Premium Edition model?I love their high's and lows section.
