Where Can I Buy A Nissan Gtr
For decades the Nissan Skyline GT-R represented forbidden fruit to American high-performance enthusiasts. The sports car was a trans-Pacific lure into a world where twin turbochargers, all-wheel drive and incredible aftermarket support churned out one of the most exciting Japanese market vehicles ever built.

The GT-R is an entirely new model sharing little with the Nissan Skyline GT-R, except its signature four round tail lights. Like some later generations of the Skyline GT-R, the GT-R has the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system with a twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder engine. But the HICAS four-wheel-steering system was removed and the former straight-6 RB26DETT engine was replaced with the new VR38DETT engine. Despite the GT-R's heritage, the chassis code for the all-new version is CBA-R35 and for later model years DBA-R35 and 4BA-R35, or R35 for short (where CBA, DBA and 4BA stands for the emissions standard prefix), carrying on the naming trend from previous Skyline GT-R generations.
The production version of the GT-R was unveiled at 2007 Tokyo Motor Show as scheduled, right after an on-screen 7:38 minute lap time around the wet Nürburgring Nordschleife was broadcast, beating the Porsche 911 (997) Turbo as Nissan stated before introducing the car, also being the 7th fastest lap time for a production vehicle around the track. In November, 2007, Nissan revealed that the GT-R already had a considerable demand, as more than 3,000 buyers pre-ordered the car in Japan before its official launch. They also expected to sell around 200 units per each month with deliveries to begin in December, 2007 in Japan. The GT-R launched in the Japanese market on December 6, 2007. The U.S. official launch was seven months later on July 7, 2008. The first production GT-R was owned by Nissan's CEO at the time, Carlos Ghosn. 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 its third market, where it was launched in March 2009. The large disparity in initial marketing between these regional releases was due to Nissan having to build GT-R performance centres where the car was serviced.
The ATTESA ET-S all-wheel-drive system was an updated version of the ATTESA E-TS Pro, was used in older Skyline GT-R models. This was a rear biased all-wheel-drive system, helping the GT-R for its incredible handling and stability at high speeds. In normal conditions, this system provides 100 percent power to the rear wheels through the main carbon-composite propeller shaft. In conditions where limited traction is available to the rear wheels, such as heavy acceleration and cornering, the separated additional propeller shaft sends torque from the transfer case to the front differential, resulting in a 50:50 front to rear power distribution. The rear differential and transmission are built as a single component called a transaxle. An open type differential distributes power in the front, and a 1.5 way multi-disc mechanical limited slip differential does so in the rear. In addition to these mechanical components, the GT-R is also capable of automatically braking either of the front wheels when slip is detected in order to send power to the other front wheel, so as to mimic the functionality of a mechanical limited slip differential.
On February 27, 2009, Nismo announced a partnership with British racing team Gigawave Motorsports in order to enter the GT-R into 2009 FIA GT Championship. Their ambition was to fine tune the performance of the car, as they would be able to provide customer cars for future customer teams in the upcoming seasons. Nismo driver Michael Krumm and Gigawave driver Darren Turner were recruited by the team, former Formula One driver, Anthony Davidson also joined the team for the 24 Hours of Spa race, where the car scored an in class podium finish as it finished the race in 3rd position, starting from 8th on the grid. The entry was not eligible for championship points, as it was concerned as a factory team.
Nissan did not enter the 2018 season, GT Sport entered instead. The car scored a podium finish in Silver Cup class at Silverstone, starting from 7th on the grid, made some impressive overtakes to finish on the podium. The GT-R Nismo GT3 consistently finished on points for rest of the championship and ended the season 6th in the Silver Cup driver's championship and 12th in the overall team's championship standings. 2019 was the last season that a GT-R Nismo GT3 was entered for the championship, GT Sport Motul Team RJN was replaced by the team KCMG, they wasn't in championship contention that year, as the car was entered only for the 24 Hours of Spa race, where it finished 16th in Pro class.
Despite only having entered for small amount of races in the previous years of GT World Challenge Australia (previously known as Australian GT Championship), Hobson Motorsport driver Brett Hobson entered for the 2021 GT World Challenge Australia, in order to fight for the championship. The entered GT-R Nismo GT3 was previously used by Nissan for the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour race, and it entered the competition under GT Trophy class. In the opening race of the first round at Phillip Island, the car scored a podium finish, as it finished the race 3rd in class and 7th in overall positions. In the second race, the car scored its first in class race win, finished 4th in overall positions. In the second round at Mount Panorama, the car finished on the podium, as it finished the race 3rd and 8th in overall positions, starting from pole position in GT Trophy class. The car did not start the second race. In the following round at Tailem Bend, the car qualified 3rd and 6th in class and overall positions respectively. In the race, the car made enough positions to win the overall race with the fastest lap of the race. In the second race, the car retired after racing for 5 laps, due to a gearbox issue. The car was refreshed entirely and returned to the championship deciding final round at Mount Panorama, it paid enough for the car, as it dominated the whole race weekend with back-to-back wins and pole positions. In the first race, the car took pole position and won in class, 3rd in overall positions. In the second and final race of the season, it took pole position again and won in class, 2nd in overall positions with the fastest lap of the race. Even though the car failed to start and retired from couple of races, it made an impressive comeback to finish 2nd in final standings, just 8 points behind the championship winning Audi R8 LMS ultra. The GT-R Nismo GT3 ended the season with 4 wins, 3 pole positions and finished every race in the podium to score 6 podium finishes. The team returned for the 2022 season, only for the first round at Phillip Island, where it took pole position under GT Trophy class and finished 2nd and 3rd positions in the first and second races respectively.
Having only participated in Bathurst 12 Hour and Spa 24 Hours races in 2017, 2019 was the first and only season, a GT-R Nismo GT3 was competed in all Intercontinental GT Challenge races. Entered by team KCMG, it was the first full season for the car. It managed to score points in all races except in Spa, where it finished in 12th position, starting from outside of the 20th position on the grid. The car also scored the fastest laps of Bathurst 12 Hour and California 8 Hours races. It was the only GT championship that the car did not manage to score a single podium position. The GT-R Nismo GT3 ended the season 6th in the manufacturer's championship, just a point behind Ferrari.
The Bathurst 12 Hour was one of the most successful endurance races for the GT-R Nismo GT3, as where its predecessor, Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 Group A also have earned its nickname "Godzilla", despite the standard GT-R made its debut in 2012, entered by team Donut King Racing and driven by Tony Alfred, Adam Breechey and Peter Leemhuis, it won the C class and finished the race 6th in overall positions. The GT-R Nismo GT3 made its Bathurst 12 Hour debut in 2014, entered by Nismo Athlete Global Team, it qualified in 5th position for the race. In the race, while battling for 3rd position, the car involved in an incident and was forced to retire from the race. The team returned for the 2015 race, with drivers Strauss, Chiyo and Reip, the car crashed while on a flying for pole position, but managed to qualify in 3rd position. In the race after an intensive battle up front in the final 20 minutes of the race, the car charged itself from 3rd to 1st on the penultimate lap and won the 2015 Liquid Moly Bathurst 12 Hour. It was the first time won by a Nissan entered car since the 1992 race, as the Skyline GT-R R32 Group N won the race for the last time before it got banned. In the 2016 race, where after qualifying in a disappointing 13th position, Chiyo, Strauss and Nissan Australia's Rick Kelly finished the race in 2nd position, closed the 14 second time deficit to 1.2 seconds behind the race-winning McLaren 650S GT3 from Tekno Autosports, during the closing stages of the race. However the car led the most laps in the race, having led for 107 out of the 297 laps run.
The team did not return for the 2017 race, instead Nissan Motorsport and Wall Racing entered the race each with two GT-R Nismo GT3 race cars. Nissan Motorsport No.24 car led the race in different scenarios, despite having a gearbox issue in the 6th hour of the race, the car was forced to pit and rejoined the race in 10th position, but managed to finish the race 4th in class and 8th overall. No.23 car retired from the race due to technical errors, despite the car competed in the race for 174 laps, it was classified as it finished the race 8th in class and 32nd in overall positions. Both Wall Racing entered cars were retired from the race, but No.38 car was classified as it finished the race in 31st position, despite it competed for 200 laps. The car did not enter for the race in 2018. In 2019 KCMG entered the race with two GT-R Nismo GT3 race cars, as a part of the 2019 Intercontinental GT Challenge. No.18 car finished the race in 7th position, while No.35 car finished 10th in class and 15th in overall positions. The team returned for the 2020 race, where No.18 car qualified in 4th position, while No.35 car withdrew the race due to a crash during the practice session. No.18 car finished the race 9th in class and 12th in overall positions. A GT-R Nismo GT3 entered by Hobson Motorsport, was qualified 6th and 31st, finished the race 5th and 21st in class and overall positions respectively. Since then no GT-R Nismo GT3 race cars were entered for the race. 041b061a72
