The latest example of a cult-favorite car is destined for a lucky Aussie as part of a charitable initiative for a just cause.
Nissan fans who have missed the chance to purchase one of the latest GT-R supercars have one last chance to secure an example of the iconic car.
The GT-R racing in Australia was disrupted by red tape that prevented Nissan from importing and selling the car in 2022.
Sold new for $ 256,700 plus road costs, the Nissan GT-R T-Spec made headlines for $ 1 million by asking owners lucky enough to receive sought-after examples.
Nissan hasn’t ruled out the sale of GT-R models in the future, though exactly what those cars will look like – or when they might be available – isn’t clear.
The latest R35 generation Nissan GT-R sold in Australia will be a green T-Spec coupe set to go to a charity auction on 7 April.
Ferntree Gully Nissan will sell the latest GT-R through Bid For Good and eBay’s charity hub, with the profits from the sale going to local firefighters and a volunteer-led youth charity.
Retailer principal Michael Banjanin said the auction price will start at $ 395,000, with all proceeds over $ 280,000 going to the CFA’s Upper Ferntree Gully Brigade and the Bridge Builders Youth Charity.
“There is no better way to celebrate the farewell of an iconic vehicle like the GT-R and the T-Spec special edition than to raise money for these two incredible and worthy causes,” he said.
“We are proud to be part of the Ferntree Gully community and are delighted to be able to give back to the people who so selflessly give to others.
“There will surely be a very happy GT-R owner soon!”
