Earlier this week, Alan revealed that a company going by the name of GT Compliance has been cleared to import and comply the R35 GT-R for use on Australian roads - as a low volume ?grey? import. And that?s exciting news for those waiting not so patiently, to get their hands on Nissan?s new Ringmeister.
TMR can now go one step further and show you the GT-R that will be the first example registered for Aussie roads. Owned by the larger than life ?Big Carl?, this particular GT-R will, in a matter of days be wearing registration plates and will be up for sale. You see, Carl has another (just landed) example that he?s keeping for himself.
General consensus is that Nissan Australia delivered R35 GT-R?s will not be available before 2010, although the reality is that no-one but the folks at Nissan really know how accurate that is. The easiest way for Nissan to put an end to R35 grey imports is to begin officially importing the car themselves?
In the meantime, if you want to be first in line, numero uno, the person at the head of the cue, then all you?ll be requiring is around $175,000, a bit of change for on-roads and a need for speed.
If that sounds like you, drop us a line here and we?ll put you in touch with the big fella himself.
