The Nissan GT-R is definitely one of the most well known car models in the world. After being in the Fast and Furious to Need For Speed Pro-street, the GT-R had already made a name for itself. Recently Nissan unveiled the new GT-R for 2023 however we’ll be looking at the previous model years to see if they are still worth it at this day and age.
The design of the 3rd generation GTR has been a topic on controversy, with big rear circular brake lights and a large front curved bonnet, it is safe to say owning a Nissan GT-R is not everyone’s cup of tea.
First becoming widely recognised when Nissan revealed the Skyline GT-R in 1969 which boasted of a powerful 2.0l engine.
The standard and stock R-35 has been fitted with a 3.8 litre turbo charged engine which is capable of accelerating the vehicle from 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds. The handling and performance of the GT-R makes it easy to drive however the noisy drivetrain and frequent vehicle servicing can be quite off-putting if your looking to purchase a GT-R.
However owning a Nissan GTR R35 could be in your budget if your looking to own one in 2023. The average price of a R35 has a cost price of anywhere between £30,000 to £40,000 depending on the year, condition and mileage. Most likely they have been used and finding one that is brand new or has low mileage is quite rare.
The GT-R is known and prone for mod work so most the time you’ll see the vehicle has been remapped, fitted with a Miltek exhaust system or has even had a complete engine conversion or upgrade. Finding the right vehicle with zero problems should be your responsibility when purchasing the vehicle.
