2009 Nissan GT-R

Nissan GT-R 2009The Nissan GT-R is a beast of a machine, offering 480bhp and it will reach 60mph in around 3.5 seconds delivering a top speed of 190mph. As you might expect from something that looks that good and has the spec to back it up, it isn’t going to be cheap. When it was released in Japaned in December of last year it cost the equivalent of about £30,000 but expect that price tag to nearly double in time for its UK release at the beginning of next year.

The Baby Veyron, as it has become affectionately known, will be available in three different models with surprisingly little difference. The “standard” GT-R will cost £52,900. The Premium Edition, which includes automatic headlamps and a hefty Bose audio system weighs in marginally more at £54,200. The Black Edition, which has a Kuro black finish with gunmetal grey alloys, black leather with Pearlsuede and red leather highlights costs the most at £55,500.

While it’s potentially possible to pre-order one now, I wouldn’t hold you breath. I think it would be fair to say that the numerous custom made parts, highly limited production, and the typical burst of online bidding is probably also going to increase that screen price somewhat.

Still, it looks awesome and it’s good to dream.
