No surprise here folks. Nissan Australia is reporting that it has orders in hand for more than 100 GT-Rs. The order book opened on October 9, and Nissan is claiming a ?rush? to secure its ?anyone, anywhere, anytime supercar?.
?The early customer reaction is fabulous and we have secured enough production to ensure that no-one who wants an R35 GT-R will be disappointed,? Nissan Australia Managing Director, Dan Thompson, said.
The Nissan GT-R, is proving its mettle around the world, taking the fight to far more expensive and exotic machinery. It has also enjoyed being the darling of the world?s motoring press in 2008. Personally, I can?t recall reading a single review that wasn?t glowing.
Priced from $148,800, Nissan can correctly claim that the GT-R is poised to become an instant classic in Australia.
Australian delivered GT-R's will be sold and serviced at 11 exclusive Nissan High Performance Centres in each capital city, when it goes on sale locally next April.
Answering the question on a number of lips, Nissan Australia has confirmed that it has enough GT-Rs ?secured? to ensure that no-one will miss out. That could be a big call.
