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.
