Nissan GT-R still available to buy in US.
The Nissan GT-R in R35 variant was launched back in 2007, but it is still considered one of the most capable supercars in the world. A brand new successor may or may not be in the cards, although in certain areas around the globe the Japanese manufacturer is already discontinuing the current generation of the Godzilla. Following Nissan Australia’s decision to cancel the GT-R in the Land Down Under because of stricter crash regulations, it seems that Europe is also saying goodbye to this performance vehicle.
According to Autoblog.nl, the GT-R is no longer for sale in many European countries. While you can still likely order one in Germany and Belgium, for example, Nissan’s dealers in The Netherlands, Italy, Spain, and other countries are not accepting orders for the supercar.
Also, the company’s official sites in those countries de-listed the GT-R. The Dutch publication also got confirmation from Nissan that the Godzilla is leaving the European market, at least for now, due to the continent’s stricter emissions standards.
Autoblog.nl states that the GT-R was already a very expensive car in the country and it was very difficult for dealers to sell it. When last available in the Netherlands, the base price for the standard GT-R was €183,000, while the GT-R Nismo started at around €303,000. Translating into US money, that works out to $200,000 and about $332,000 respectively. By the way, we weren’t able to find a starting price for the GT-R on Nissan’s German website.
Here comes the good news, you can still be able to own a new 2021 GT-R in the United States. Prices for the 2021 model year starts at $113,540, making the supercar way more affordable than in Europe.
