GT-R’s Hit The Streets

by Tim Joseph

On June18th we found out that the GT-R’s were being held captive at ports all over North America. Today the Internet is buzzing because the GT-R’s are finally being delivered to their customers and hitting the streets of America.

Nissan North America held a small even last night at 12:01am in Universal City, California. Universal Nissan, the highest volume Nissan dealer in the country was chosen to sell the first GT-R in the country due to their high allotment (25) of GT-R’s for the 2009 model year. Daryl Alison who imported a Japanese spec, right side drive, GT-R five months ago was the lucky customer. “First of all I’m going to drive it home,” Alison said. “Then I’m going to put some miles on it. Then it will probably be modified. But I’m thinking about the collector value.”

I doubt he will need to modify it much to get a good speed at the track.

GT-R’s Have Landed

A use submitted this picture to me and I’ve confirmed it’s authenticity. This was taken in Jacksonville, FL. The GT-R’s have arrived and will be sent to dealerships across the country very very soon. I do need to mention that we do not know how many are actually there. 1,500 were scheduled to come to the US and Dick Scott Nissan has no way of knowing what order we will receive them in.

There are also reports and pictures from Los Angeles and Vancouver of GT-R’s sitting in lots and being driven off the boats. Nissan North America has mostly denied these reports saying the vehicles are still in Japan with a few of them parked in Hawaii. This has been debunked by many eye witnesses. I can’t blame NNA for saying they aren’t here. They’re not set to be delivered for another month or so. We’ll keep you updated.
