What used Nissan GT-R coupe will I get for my budget?
High mileage GT-Rs start at about £26,000, but it might be worth upping the wedge to between £27,000 and £30,000 to secure a 2009 one with an average mileage for the year and a full service history. Aim at between £31,000 and £35,000 for a 2010 car, and think £36,000 to £40,000 for a 2011 car, with £41,000 to £45,000 for a 2011 car with a low mileage and a 2012 car with a higher one. £50,000 and upwards will get you behind the wheel of later models, with around £55,000 needed for a good 2015 GT-R.
How much does it cost to run a Nissan GT-R coupe?
It ain’t gonna be cheap. The official fuel consumption for the GT-R was originally claimed to be 23.9mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 275g/km. Those cars registered before the tax changes of April 2017 came into force will pay their annual car tax (VED) on a scale related to those CO2 emissions, so expect a large bill there. Those registered after that date will pay the flat rate fee, currently £140 a year, plus a supplementary luxury car tax for cars costing over £40,000 new, which is currently set at £310 a year.
Insurance costs likewise are top league, and servicing should best be carried out by a main dealer who specialises in GT-Rs, which means it’ll be pricey. It’ll need servicing every 12 months or 9000 miles.
