Nissan GT-R's Singapore Parallel Imports

From AsiaOne Motoring

This year is different, however, because of the impact of the Nissan GT-R, an iconic sports car that has seen 170 parallel imported units sold since it was first introduced here in January 2008.

Strong third-quarter sales of this cult car with a 3.8-litre turbocharged V6 engine accounted for almost half of the total sales so far this year. And despite being a premium model, the GT-R made up two-thirds of all Nissan PI models registered this year.

The sports model is not cheap. It has a list price that ranges from $245,000 to $265,000, depending on the trim level. It used to be higher, but the original $260,000 to $280,000 price range when the car was first introduced here has since been forced down by competition.

The popularity of the non-authorised GT-R is due to the fact that official distributor Tan Chong will only launch a homologated GT-R in the second quarter of 2009.

The listed company brought in one unit for a preview at the recently concluded Singapore Motorshow 2008, though.

170 cars in Singapore. Thats a good number.
