Price Increase on Nissan GT-R for Australia

The falling Australian dollar in the current worlds economy is causing Nissan to raise the price of the Nissan GT-R, even before the car is released in Australia. The GT-R is to be released for sale April 1, 2009 , and its not an April fools joke, but the price is increasing to around $154,300 AUD.

Unfortunately, the prices were calculated before the Australian dollar collapsed against the yen and the ensuing two per cent price increase across most of the model range on January 1.

Nissan will not levy the increase on those customers who have already put down a deposit on their GT-R, but Nissan Australia’s marketing general manager Ross Booth told GoAuto that those who decide to buy the car when it arrives in April could face an increase of “around one to two per cent”.

his will add between $1500 and $3000 to the GT-R’s price, increasing the entry-level GT-R from $148,800 to at least $150,300 and the GT-R Premium from $152,800 to at least $154,300.

Mr Booth said Nissan was holding 140 orders for the GT-R and, unlike other premium sportscar brands, he claims no orders have been cancelled.
