SA’s best-selling supercar
ROSSLYN — The Nissan GT-R looks set to keep its title as South Africa’s bestselling supercar, after sales for the new MY17 got off to a flying start.
The first consignment of 2017-spec Nissan GT-Rs were made available in 2016 and was sold well before it landed in South Africa. To date over 500 GTRs have been sold in South Africa, making it the country’s most popular supercar. Asked what made the the 2017 sell so fast, dealers listed the price. At R2 250 000 they say the GT-R offers the best ratio of power and performance for your money. Another reason for the strong market for new and used Nissan GT-R models is the vehicle’s bulletproof mechanics.
Xavier Gobille, director for sales, marketing and aftersales at Nissan Group of Africa, said it is not uncommon for an owner to double his investment in his GT-R with performance and aerodynamic additions.
On the rare occasions that GT-R owners part with their supercars, it is almost always for a new GT-R.
