Well, at least Nissan is finally making this as an option for the gtr Nismo which makes it a legit lap time imo. but $80k over the nismo gtr??? no thanks, i'd rather have a porsche, 2 corvette's, 2 vipers. or I could just get my dream car the viper srt10 acr and keep the extra $130k for insurance, maintenance, and gas money!

I dunno, I think its questionable, Not too mention it would be confusing, honestly, They should just have this AS the Nismo, Instead of an expensive option, That is retarded, Like the W Pack on the 918 and UPP ZO7.

I am going to propose that this time be removed from the regular GT-R NISMO page and a new GT-R NISMO N Attack page be created that will have this time. The car that ran the Ring was not a normal GT-R NISMO. The N Attack package is a +$80K package that is added to the NISMO +$150K price tag. It looks like at the moment this will be a Japan only option. The changes for the N Attack are extensive and even mention structural changes. Here are the details:

I do believe that this amount of change requires a separate car model for fastestlaps. The Z07 package for the Z06 was far less of a change and warranted a new entry. This will also clear up some confusion as to why the regular GT-R NISMO laps times at other tracks are not living up to the N Attack Ring Time.

Back when I posted that, I was going by what was available at that time.

We're still waiting for a 991 GT2RS but I'm sure if/when it comes, it will be more than double (maybe triple) the price of the Carrera. That wouldn't bother me at all. It's the way that things are and is very common.

The low end model sales support the development of the high end models.

"Look at the 911 Carrera vs Turbo S"

should've compared the standard carrera to a GT3 RS or GT2 RS or simply just one of them in non-RS package

It leave me a question. If GT-R can achieved this laptimes, then what happen to the new Z07 and ACR? Can they beat Nissan lap times?


User avatar

Super8  4y  

Even it's fast but it's still not too exclusive just like it's predecessor. I still choose LFA rather than GT-R even it's slower on tracks.

@BR2+

So you are saying as long as it is not named a nissan it is worth over 300k ?

You gotta let go of the hatred inside your black heart, the gtr is a beast and none of the cars you mentioned will ever come close to the gtr's time any time soon

so keep dreaming about owning a muscle car that will put you in lamp post on any given day

GT-R NISMO Super Ultra Track Über Mega Dynamo SPEC-A thru Z

Mate, That car is gonna be shown in the Detroit AutoShow in January!

but if he is gladly willing to pay double, Nissan will be happy to take his money.

Sadly that's true though, I don't like it when people get taken advantage of. Sure Making money of people stupidity can be..."Profitable" but I cant fully agree with it, Cars like the Veneno, Reventon, Veyron, NSXR GT, Trevita, M3 GTS, I think cars like that are fine to make, But there prices are ridiculous, Even more so compared to there "Standard" counterparts.

But a car like a GT-R, Isnt gonna have its customers alienated ANY time soon no matter what the cost of the next faster version would be.

But I think some are worth more then others,

The "worth" is simply what someone (or many) is willing to pay. It doesn't necessarily cost double to produce but the manufacturer will charge as much as they can without alienating potential customers.

Some will pay more for the exclusivity or just for the feeling of knowing that they got "the top of the line".

Would the average driver know the difference between a GT-R and a GT-R NISMO Super Ultra Track Über Mega Dynamo SPEC-A thru Z? Probably not but if he is gladly willing to pay double, Nissan will be happy to take his money.

@BR2+
And when will Nissan make the new "Thanksgiving Special" GT-R? How about just make 25 units per year with an MSRP of $249,975? How about a bored-out 4.5-liter V6 engine producing 740 horsepower? How will it beat the 918? Huh?

I think in Porsches case, They should just completely drop the Non S Models, Just keep the Carrera S, Cayman S, Boxter S, Turbo S etc, Those models always get the buyers/reviews/press/laptimes/ Porsche always pushed those models, Just get rid of the base, I don't see any point in them.

@NIN

Options like that are abundant, And have been, But I think some are worth more then others, But is a Turbo S worth double the price of a Carrera S? or a Z51 to a ZR1? I really don't know, That's a hard question for me to answer, You don't get 2 cars, so its rather difficult.

@aaaa

The 918 was never ment to compete with any Nissan. And Porsche/Chevrolet/Nissan have been Upstaging people for MANY years know, Its nothing new, And im sure the trend will continue. The GT-R has ALWAYS been a Bang for the Buck, Even the R32 and R33, ANd I can DEFINETLY say the R34 is worth EVERy penny..I should know.


User avatar

@NIN me too, I really could care less about price, I only mentioned the Nismo's premium over the base GTR, to stop people from bitching about the GTR's bang for buck aspect. But I will repeat again, as long as the car is faster at the track I could give two shits whether it costs $100,000 or over $1million, a victory is a victory.

I don't mind when the "normal" base price of a car is low and the "high end" price is nearly double. It's actually common.

Look at the 911 Carrera vs Turbo S, Stingray vs (soon) ZR-1, Mustang vs GT500, Lancer vs EVO X, Camaro vs Z/28, etc.

The less expensive versions outsell the high end versions and that helps to pay the bills and cover development costs.

I feel bad for Nissan, it seems everytime they upgrade their GTR, porsche always seems to one up them (this time with the 918). porsche keeps bullying them out of the top spot LOL. also people can say whatever they want about the difference in price, but the way I see it is, regardless of the price, the 918 is quicker. also with the Nismo GTR's price nearly double the price of the base GTR, it's a far cry from the "bargain supercar" it used to be. but like I said, I really could care less about price when looking at laptimes. (if the car wins at a lower price I just consider that a bonus)

..We might as well make Rockets road legal knowadays, The cars today might as well be Rockets, Honestly.

But, My biggest problem with this Nismo version, Is the Price increase. The GT-R was always a good bargain, But now with a price tag at an estimated, or slightly below 200k, That's ridiculous. No matter how much performance it has, DOUBLE the price over a Non Nismo GT-R? Pass, But, This isn't the Only car, Vipers, Corvettes, 911s, are all getting superbly expensive, And a lot of these Bargain performance cars are losing there bargain. For an extra 100k, Im sure I could make the GTR a good deal faster round a bend and in accel then the Nismo version. Pretty soon a base Civic will be approaching the 60k mark..
