I think they liked it.

 

Gone are the days of the original GT-R costing £53k, still with prices like these the earlier GT-R model prices are likely to stay quite stable.

I don't think the price has been announced yet. I'm sure it will be a lot more than £150K.

Looks to me like with all the extra carbon this is the model year to get.

Interesting how the 2017 model nismo gets a hammering from this car.

I think this is the nicest GTR Nismo of the lot to be honest.  But I can only dream.

One of the greatest noises ever made by a man-made object and, if you get your skates on, you can park it near some Zeds at Silverstone in two and a half weeks time: https://www.autotrad...adale F1&page=1  :drive1 :thumbs:

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - When you give up driving, you’re not going to look back wistfully on the car you owned with the nicest dashboard top or speaker grilles. You’re going to remember a car for its excitement and how it made you feel.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though.

The existing GT-R NISMO is £154k, so its only 20k more and there are a lot of carbon extras and with the ceramic brakes etc. I dont think the price jump is that high over the existing model for the extra kit.

Agreed. All things considered that's not too bad. The only fear for a buyer is how good the 2021 version is. The only disappointment is that we've got to play the "what else could you buy for . . ." game again. :D

Its interesting (to me anyway!) that it is German registered but RHD. This suggests that it is a Japanese pre-production model brought over for the press to see.

 

And I don't think you'll see a 2021 version. I feel the MY20s could be the last of the R35.

P.s. And of course the price hike protects the residuals of the previous versions.

I am afraid I would be looking at the Porsche for that Money.  And the residuals would be as strong, likely even better.  To be honest I would have the GT4 and save £70k and the residuals on that are bonkers.  Its stupid money IMHO - There would be serious choice and I am afraid Badge snobbery does start to come in at that price.#

 

Has anyone seen one of those Special Italian Design GTRs yet - has anyone taken delivery?

All I can say about the Porsche is that the line of 911 variants at Leeds Castle was so long I couldn't be bothered to walk over to look along it...
