Question Would you pay $129,000 for Nissan GT-R?



We knew it was bound to happen, but we didn't know to what extent Nissan dealers would be gouging enthusiasts here in the States for the first legal taste of GT-R goodness. Ty over at ExhuastNote.com decided to do some leg work to find out what markup retailers would be charging for the new Nissan GT-R, and after calling 15 dealerships throughout California, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Virginia and Washington the markups ranged from $20,000 to $60,000 over the GT-R's $69k base price. As Ty pointed out, that could get you a new 350Z and a Sentra.

With only 1,500 examples being available during the first year, this is no real surprise. Supply and demand is in full effect, and for the time being, only the most financially solvent and patient among us will be able to get their hands on Nissan's newest hotness.

Head on over the ExhaustNote.com to read the full report.

It has nothing to do with It being a Nissan, Because @ $69,000 I think It just replaced the Vette Z06 As the Best preformance car value dollar for dollar. It has to do with principle. I honestly don't see people paying THAT much over 5-15 MAYBE... $60,000 over!?!... Stop!!!

Anyone who charges $60K over needs to wear a ski mask when they collect the check

Default 60% of Nissan Dealers agree to sell GT-R

I just read that 692 of Nissan's 1100 dealers in the U.S. agreed to sell the GT-R when it's released later this year.

Nissan reported that the dealers have to order a set of special tools and have a technician trained on the vehicle before they are allowed to sell the GT-R. It was estimated that the cost of the tools and training is $20K.

Nissan plans on selling 1500 GT-Rs/year in the U.S.

This reminds me of the Maybach debacle at Daimler Benz...Look how well that went!
