The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO is now available for purchase in Japan where it retails for close to $200,000

The Nissan GT-R is already a great car, thanks to the great care taken by the team of special engineers in Japan who build each and every GT-R engine by hand. If that isn’t somehow good enough to fulfill your need for a powerful and sporty coupe, Nissan has prepared the Nissan GT-R NISMO just for you. The pricing information for the completely revamped 2017 model has just been released, and all we have to say is that you’re definitely going to need a bigger money jar.

Before we reveal this number, we just want to check that you are sitting down and not driving a car* or handling anything breakable. Are you ready? Drum roll, please!


To drive home in a Nissan GT-R NISMO, you will need, at the very minimum, $174,990 MSRP in financing or cash. That is a lot of money for a new vehicle, but prospective buyers should rest assured that their investment will go a long (and fun) way. The NISMO iteration of the standard Nissan GT-R has great aerodynamics, exact handling, and factory tuning to make its drive as fast and smooth as possible.

This is the third year that the Nissan GT-R NISMO will be offered, and Nissan unveiled it in North America at the Japanese Classic Car Show in California. Under the hood is a 600-horsepower high-capacity turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine. Beside the sleek exterior and the powerful engine, on the inside the Nissan GT-R NISMO’s upholstery features Nappa leather instruments and a new seat design.
