The long-awaited Nissan GT-R has finally arrived on Indian shores. This spy photo is of one of the six GT-Rs that arrived at Mumbai airport last week for customs clearance. Since the GT-R is well above US$ 40,000 there is no requirement for a lengthy homologation process and it is expected to launch here sometime in October.
Nissan has opened bookings for the GT-R and is accepting deposits of Rs 25 lakh for deliveries on a first-come, first-serve basis. The first GT-R customer will be actor John Abraham whose love for the Nissan supercar prompted him to become a brand ambassador for the Japanese company. According to sources, the first lot of GT-Rs have already been sold, despite the steep asking price of around Rs 2 crore.
The car maker, however, has only one GT-R dealership in Delhi, which could limit pan-India sales. Prospective buyers will be flown to Delhi and given a demo at the Buddh International Circuit to acquaint themselves with the 570hp Godzilla.
