Used Nissan GTR For Sale
If you want the most supercar for the money, this is the beast for you. You won't find another car that rips 0-60 as fast or runs 1/4 mile passes all day long. Using the age old trick of limiting production to keep the pre-owned market thriving for with all Nissan GTR for sale. Our dealers are able to sell older versions for very close to the original sticker price. Because it's only sold left-hand drive in the US and a few other markets, Exportation is another way the halo car stays on top of the supercar world. For the GTR Black Edition, the ultimate in weight savings, engineers turned uses RAYS® forged wheels along with carbon fiber body panels for a reduction of 38 lbs. Heated Recaro seats are exclusive to the package, as is a rear spoiler of dry carbon fiber.
As the flagship for their brand, the GTR R35 is the successor to one of the most legendary Japanese used cars of all time. Since 1957 it has been a force to be reckoned with on the street, but it was not sold in the US for fear of cannibalizing sales of the Z cars. Known as the Skyline GTR R34 around the world, the car had a cult following thanks to being the star of early video games. After being featured in several blockbuster motion pictures, enthusiasts in the US demanded a production version.
The Japanese car maker might have underestimated the car’s appeal in the US, and as such, they have increased the MSRP each year. A 2008 base model could be had for $69,850 and a similarly equipped 2016 example tips the scales at over $101,000. Due to the car’s rarity and abilities, depreciation doesn’t play a significant hand in resale values. A Spec V package was introduced for 2009. It featured more aggressive styling with no change in power. Engineers were turned loose on the powertrain for 2015, unleashing the Nismo edition in the US. Power was increased to 591 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. Look for a used GTR for sale with low miles and in stock form. It's awesome to have 700+ horsepower but the reliability goes down and the maintenance goes up.
Because the US has such stringent motor vehicle safety laws, an American version would be on hold until the 2007 redesign. A concept was shown at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show, but designers locked heads with engineering over how and what the car should be. Initially, the plan was to modify an existing platform for increased power and all-wheel drive, but these efforts were in vain. A new chassis was built and dedicated in order to show the world what they are capable of.
Hand built supercars are a rarity these days and extreme pride is shown with traditional craftsmanship. Each car is built from the ground up by hand, in several clean rooms at their Kaminokawa assembly plant. From a hand welded chassis to a hand-assembled engine, each car is a testament to the dedication of the workers.
If you need all-wheel drive and only two seats, It is for you. Powered by a 3.8L twin turbo V6, the driveline configuration is what makes the car so potent. A six-speed Borg-Warner dual clutch automatic transmission is mounted at the rear of the car. It is connected to the engine by a torque tube and sends power to the front axle through a smaller diameter second drive shaft. This unique design allows for 2 to 50% of torque to be sent forward in response to changing traction conditions. GODZILLA sits on a 109.4” wheelbase and weighs in around 3,840 lbs depending on options. It is capable of reaching 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds given proper tires and has been offered in several trim levels since launch.
Several aspects have a hand in the pricing of the twin-turbo monster. Due to the abilities of the car, a rigorous maintenance schedule must be adhered to. An updated has been issued for the transmission and engine control systems that should be performed before purchase. In order to make sure your money is well spent, we recommend having the car inspected by a mechanic prior to purchase. In summary, if you need all-wheel drive and the ability to launch harder than almost any other car ever built, this is an efficient and well-engineered masterpiece.
Look for the 2017 GTR to disappear from dealer showrooms as fast as they arrive. You can count on the new sports car to be in high demand and be ready to pay a premium over MSRP, especially for fully optioned cars.
Just when you thought GODZILLA couldn’t get any better, the Japanese car builder raises it to a whole new level through some subtle modifications. A boost in…err…boost pressure and new exhaust and intake tubing plus some other modifications raise output by 45 hp and 14 lb-ft to 530 hp and 485 lb-ft of torque. With its launch control issues reconciled, the sports car can muster 0-to-60-mph sprints in 3.0 seconds flat and will top out at 196 mph. Aerodynamics have also been tweaked resulting in a coefficient of drag of 0.26, down from 0.27, with a 10 percent increase in downforce. These changes help raise fuel economy by one mpg in the city and two mpg on the highway. For 2012, a special Black Edition car is also available.
One thing the Japanese car builder hasn’t done is allow its high-performance model to sit back on its haunches. Just when you think it’s gotten as fast as fast can get, another year passes, and it undergoes another round of small updates that prove it has yet to reach its limits. Forgiving the launch control system’s transmission-preserving r.p.m. reduction in 2010, it’s always better to wait for the next model year. For instance, horsepower has crept from 480 in 2009 up to today’s 545. Of course, there is a price to be paid for these improvements, literally, as the base sticker has inched from $78,000 to $99,000. While that’s sticker shock for some, Nissan is betting that others will be willing to pay more for a little more—and a little less. Limited to just 150 units, the Track Edition doesn’t get a dose of horsepower, but it does away with the back seat and adds a stiffer suspension, grippier seats and additional brake cooling. Best of all, it won’t get better next year.
