Japanese automaker Nissan will finally launch the GT-R in India by December 2015 and it will cost upwards Rs. 2 crore. It will be brought in via the CBU route.
The Nissan GT-R, fondly called the Godzilla, is one helluva sports car and also one of my personal favorites. The Japanese automaker will finally launch the GT-R in India by the end of this year and it’ll cost approximately Rs. 2 crore (ex-showroom). The vehicle’s launch has been in the offing since a long time but it kept getting delayed because Nissan was busy setting up a new service infrastructure for the performance car. The vehicle needs proper care in the hands of intensely trained technicians and hence the delay.
Only four engineers across the globe are allowed to hand-assemble the GT-R’s 3.8-litre V6 engine. Quite a handful of people already have a GT-R in India, and for these buyers, Nissan flies down service engineers all the way from Dubai. This option is not feasible every time as it is not very practical. Now, the company is equipping certain service centres to handle the GT-R. Every dealership that sells the vehicle will have one trained technician. Every technician who will be servicing the sports car will first have to undergo a 4-month training session before even doing a routine service on the car.
The Nissan GT-R produces 545 BHP of power and 627 Nm of torque. It goes from standstill to 100 km/hr in just 2.8 seconds and it comes with features like six airbags, ABS, traction control, ESC and TPMS. Of course, it’ll be brought down via the CBU route and will be a good alternative to the Jaguar F-Type, Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi R8 and Mercedes SLK55 AMG. There is also a plethora of after-market modification options available for the vehicle and many owners of such cars usually like to upgrade some parts, especially exhausts and wheels.
