The Nissan GT-R is a sports car produced by Nissan and first released Japan in 2007. It is the successor to the Nissan Skyline GT-R although it is no longer part of the Skyline range.
WHAT IF you could drive it whenever you wanted?
Evolution never stops.
With its unmatched blend of technology and soul, the GT-R® is built to be driven in real-world conditions, places other supercars wouldn’t dare to tread. And for 2014, that drive is even better, as GT-R® adds a new level of sophistication and refinement with no compromise in performance. All this, and that “R” on the badge glows even higher for 2014 with the introduction of the awe-inducing GT-R Nismo*, the performance seeking GT-R with technologies derived from motorsports experiences.
The production version of the GT-R debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, launching in the Japanese market on December 6, 2007. The U.S. official launch was seven months later on July 7, 2008. Universal Nissan in Los Angeles provided a customer with the delivery of a new GT-R, fresh from the production line at 12:01 am, on July 7, 2008. The Canadian launch was also in July 2008. Europe became the third consumer market, where it launched in March 2009. The large disparity in initial marketing between these regional releases is due to Nissan having to build GT-R performance centers where the car is serviced. Also the engine and rear-mounted dual-clutch gearbox are assembled by hand, thus limiting global production capacity to around 1000 cars a month.
