2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo Price Edges North Of $175k

Remember when the GT-R was a bargain, offering supercar performance with a price tag in the five digits?

Well it still offers supercar performance, but now these days it comes with a supercar price tag as well – or at least much closer to exotic territory.

The Japanese automaker has announced pricing for the updated 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo, which comes in at a whopping $174,990, in addition to the $1,595 destination charge that puts the as-delivered price at $176,585. That’s a substantial premium over the “standard” GT-R, which for 2017 carries a sticker price of $109,990 (or $111,585 delivered) – or about $25,000 more than what Nissan charged for the GT-R Nismo just last year.

That price difference alone could put a couple of Versas in your driveway, or cover most of the base price of 370Z. It also closely matches the sticker on Porche’s 911 GT3 RS ($175,900 pre-delivery), and fairly evenly splits the difference between the 911 Turbo ($159,200) and Turbo S ($188,100).

For all that scratch, the 2017 Nismo GT-R still packs the same 600-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 as last year, but benefits from a stiffer chassis, retuned suspension, and the revised styling applied across the GT-R range.

The pricing was announced upon the GT-R Nismo’s US debut this weekend at the Japanese Classic Car Show, held in the shadow of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.

    I would get a 911 Turbo instead of this any day of the week.

      I’d take the Nismo GTR over a boring 911 Turbo any day

    • TheHake

      I agree! And in a few years that 911T will be worth even more.

    Spend the extra 25k for no hp, clutch improvement, etc…u could spend alot less for a Corvette Z06, Shelby GT500, or Challenger Hellcat and still hit 600+hp and have 75k for upgrades….thats alot of carparts.

      Who uses a Hellcat as a track weapon?

        I’d love to see someone try. They would need to carry a new set of tyres.

        • Tumbi Mtika

          Yes indeed.

    Pity the Americans could never understand how to get their top shelf production sports cars to command as much as the GTR can. I remember when Nismo fanboy were proud of the fact that the GTR was cheaper than the Corvette. Now, the GTR can court (and get) wealthy clientele that Corvette could only wish for.

    The ‘working-mans’ supercar doesn’t exist anymore.

      But they sell a ton of corvettes, so why should GM care?

      • Status

        Quality over quantity. People who pay $100K+ for cars want to know that they have the best car available. 50K Corvettes per year at $50K per unit isn’t the same as 35K Corvettes at $75K.

        GM should care because per unit price is more important than units sold. Surely someone inside GM knows this.
