To be honest, I don’t really like how Nissan is handling their GT-R. I mean yeah, the car’s great, everyone who ever drove it (we didn’t had the chance, yet) says it’s brilliant, but I think Nissan also contributes heavily to the hype. First it was the still unclear situation of the press cars, who seem to have more power than regular ones and now this. First priced at $69,850, Nissan has announced that, starting with Sept 5th, the GT-R’s price has gone up 10 percent, up to $76,840 for the GT-R and $79,090 for the GT-R Premium model. According to the Japanese producer, the higher price was caused by the increase of the raw materials.
Until now, about 70 percent of the cars destined for the USA were sold and the first deliveries will be made on July 7, 2008.
