Thursday, 9 April 2009


Today (9th April) at 7:29am – a time which matches the technology-packed newcomer's Nürburgring lap time – the very first British buyers will take delivery of their GT-Rs from Nissan’s network of 11 High Performance Centres. Subsequent deliveries are planned for soon after although such is the demand for this halo model that those ordering one now can expect to wait at least a year.

Few vehicles have picked up so many accolades ahead of their on sale date as Nissan's GT-R and sports car enthusiasts are about to discover what makes this mighty performance flagship a multiple award winner.

The Nissan GT-R has picked up 12 accolades in the last 12 months including Auto Express Performance Car of the Year 2008, What Car? Performance Car of the Year 2009 and MSN Car of the Year 2009.

Since the order books opened on 2nd April 2008, Nissan has taken 1,250 deposits from buyers and for those who joined the GT-R queue at the beginning, the wait is almost over.


Veloce is proud to announce two forthcoming Nissan GT-R books! Both are due to be published around September time.
