Nissan Donates GT-R to the Police

February 11th, 2019

Watch your speed if you happen to be driving through Tochigi Japan. Nissan have donated a GT-R to the Tochigi Prefectural police department. The gift marked 50 years of operations of Nissan’s Kaminokawa, Tochigi factory, where GT-R is built.

Nissan has a long history with the Japanases police, having donated 1965 model NIssan Silvias, 1970s Fairlady Z's, and more recently Fairlady 370Z's.


Australian Government moves to block performance car imports.

November 13th, 2017

In what can only be described as a dick move by the Australian Government, they are planning to severely restrict the number of performance cars that can be imported per year. This means no grey market GT-R's, Porsches, BMWs and WRXs.

They are doing this obviously to protect their mates in the local luxury car market, and the governments cut of the luxury car tax (currently at 33%), which makes cars such as the GT-R so expensive in Australia.

So whats happening?

Nissan Australia are running a competition to test drive a GT-R. It's one of those 25 words or less deals which I suck at, but you might be have a better chance. Enter here www.nissan.com.au/forms/win-the-ultimate-gt-r-test-drive

I got a job. It pays the bills, but not much left over. Certainly not enough to Buy me a GT-R.

In other news the Government is approving parallel importing of Australian market cars, meaning in 2018 people can import a less than 1 year old and less than 500kms on the clock GT-R directly from Japan at the Japanese price, instead of buying on from Nissan Australia at the Australia Tax price. It also means we'll be able to get a Nismo GT-R, as they aren't sold in this market.

For example this 2015 GT-R could be imported for approximately $125,000, which is a whole lot cheaper than any second hand GT-R on carsales.com.au and a massive amount off the new price from a Dealer.
