2009 Nissan GT-REnlarge Photo
Nissan says this morning that the official on-sale date for the Nurburging-raging sportscar is July 7. The better news: Only 70 percent of the first year's allotment has been sold, so there's still a chance for you to sign up for the GT-R's first-year run of about 2,500 copies.
Pricing for the GT-R is set at $69,850 for the base model, but there's a $1,000 delivery charge on top of that. The GT-R Premium goes for $71,900 plus delivery. Only 671 of Nissan's dealers are being supplied with the sportscar, but details on where those dealers are can be found at the Nissan Web site.
The 2009 Nissan GT-R, as you know well by now, turned in a 7-minute, 29-second lap time at the Nordschliefe, thanks to its 480-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6. The GT-R also sports 430 pound-feet of torque, a paddle-shifted dual-clutch transmission, and all-wheel drive.
