They do indeed seem to - god knows what price is going to be. Looks like £175,000+based on US exchange rate and VAT etc.

I may have to correct them on first production GT-R to have ceramics however......

Shame they think the engine size is only a 3.5 though! You would have thought they could get that right.

People can complain about the price I suppose but, frankly, if they sell five in UK I would be amazed so will be super rare.

I would get one in a heartbeat if I could get decent trade in on my Nismo but I suspect that depreciation ship has sailed.

Looks awesome but £150k really?

I think at that price I would be looking at something else other than this.

The price is more than £175k

It’s a shed load for an old car

It does however look amazing in the flesh

It doesn’t look £175k worth

They can keep it! It not even close to being worth £175k+.

When you think what it would cost to mod a 35 to the same power/equipment level its not worth the extra money to have a rare car imho.

Surely a lot of money is in the value of the carbon parts, the quality and fit will be somewhat different to almost anything aftermarket.

My LM20 will run circles around that in every way, power and handling hands down. Im going to be putting mine up for sale soon, so if anyone is looking for a mint Lm20 number 20/20 then give me shout.

I totally agree Rog and I reckon you would probably need to find another £70k if you traded in. That probably makes it not worth it.
As they are built to order then there will not be any discount either.

It’s not really having an issue selling in japan tho

50 paid pre orders

(Some are going to tuners , Midori’s Boss for instance has one on order )

Tax is removed in japan if you a tuner (8%)

Suspect will be japan only type sales

I only hate the price not the car
