Hi all.

As per above I have had a couple of GTR's and despite having fast M cars (M3/M4 ) and RS Audi's (RS3/RS6) still have an itch to get back into a GTR.

I love Bayside Blue so a 50th Anniversary GTR got me very interested again but at £93,000 (and £17,000 more than a brand new MY19 Recaro after discount at £75995) is it worth it.

I like the idea that only 18 coming to the UK but is there much interest and has anyone been offered any discount.

You can also get a new track edition for £90,000 to add to the mix plus for that money you are into used LM20 like the grey one at Litchfield with 775 bhp.

I have RS6 as daily so would be a weekend, fast road car plus occasional track day and trip to Nürburgring.

I intend keeping the car for a quite number of years.

Thoughts and experiences welcome.

For me personally I don't think there's enough in the 50th anniversary to justify the price they want and dealers will not discount as only 18 coming to UK which is the only USP for me. I would go track pack if going to spend 90ish and prob can get discount on them as well.

I would choose track edition, can’t see the anniversary edition holding any extra value, regardless of colour or numbers.

I would buy track edition and modify it, the 50th anniversary edition needs to stay standard and wont be anything special compare to your rs6 (awesome car for a daily)

I would buy the Track Edition and then have Litchfield colour change PPS it to the Anniversary colour.

Bonded body, Nismo suspension and Anniversary colour!

I had exactly that same dilemma, and just decided the anniversary model wasn't worth the extra...ordered a TE instead, and with a £10k discount from list it seemed an absolute bargain :chuckle:

45th Anniversary model is not worth any more than a standard 15 car. But the Gold is a marmite colour - I think the 50th cars will be a bit more desirable and will command a small premium, just not £17K!!

To realise any premium they'd have to be low mileage so you wouldn't want to drive it a lot either. So on balance I'd get the track edition. :D

Do you have pricing for the MY20 TE? Still waiting for my dealer to update me.

I've just ordered mine and as far as I've been informed, any ordered now will be the my20 car...so I just went off the prices provided when I did it through carwow? Afaik the pricing was from the Nissan website, sorry I can't be more help.

Just had a look and Carwow is still showing the MY19 car and prices, missing the new options for CCB's and carbon roof. My dealer has told me that my car will come as a MY20 and asked if I want the new options (yes) but has no pricing yet.

Did you buy from Norwich, they were best when I ordered?

No, Nottingham were by far the best for me...over 10% off list.:)

Yes I have ordered a bayside 50th.
Done the standard cars, done the track pack, done the LM20...
Just want a nice standard car now that's a bit different.

Yes, it's a bit much for a standard non track pack car.
But it's also Bayside Blue which I really like and it'll sit well with my Bayside Blue R34s.

Also cost... worrying about a few grand here or there. If you do just don't buy a new car. Most dump value. But you only live once.
If you can afford it and it's what you want, without taking money away from other things you want to do... live a little and just do what you want. You are a long time dead.

Why go for a GT-R?
That gives you a big heavy fast daily and a big, heavy, fast weekend/track day car.

The GT-R is nice, but I don't actually rate them on track that much. You'd have so much fun in something lighter and more playful. You might be going slower, but it'd be much cheaper to run and more involving. If you are looking at spending £90k on a toy there are a huge number of options. And several will hold money better than a new GT-R.

If going to thrash it and it has to be a GT-R just buy an older Track Pack maybe, use it and not lose so much?

If there are genuinely only 18 Anniversary models coming to the UK money aside I think they will be quite collectible. If I was ordering one bayside blue would be my choice.

When you ordered yours CT17 did they give you any indication of how many had been ordered or what build number your car will actually be ?

To be honest I didn't ask.
As long as it turns up and it's blue I'm happy!

Hear Hear (I have to tell myself that with Nismo) haha

Actually I quite like the stripes oddly which everyone seems to hate other than CT17 obviously.

I just got bored of the daft comments.

Wouldn't buy a car with those on.
They'll kill the residual value.
My god, they look shit.
Wouldn't buy one of those muscle car stripes!

Hello people, they are stickers.
If you don't like them, take them off! :thumbsup:
