    For that money, it’s not very attractive…

    Entertaining video (spoiler: on the track it’s not a contest)

    It’s still a rice-burner!

    dont forget the 4 wheel drive. not much in that price range is as powerful (though you might could get a ZR1 for close, or a Viper).

    When introduced the 2009 GT-R (which is essentially the same GT-R that’s on sale today) sold for well over the MSRP, but very quickly prices fell to below $70k for “leftover” 2009s and 2010s. IMHO that WAS a great deal . At the same time Corvette ZR1 MSRP only increased from $105 to $112k.
    Although in a different class, relative to ZR1 the GT-R is no longer such a “great deal.”
    Hopefully rapidly depreciating yen will let Nissan keep sticker from going any higher.

    P.S. While initially priced less than Parsches and Lambos, used GT-Rs seem to depreciate a lot faster than the “exotics.” $50K for a ’09 or ’10 GT-R is not out of the question. But how to get one that’s not been “tuned” to the point of engine or transmission going up in smoke?

    “Top Gear UK” ‘s Jeremy Clarkson liked it.

    A friend had a Skyline in London back in 2001. I use d to ride around with white knuckles and wide eyes in and out of traffic and along the lanes of Surrey and Berkshire. These cars rock.
