The 2015 Nissan GT-R Coming To India ?
Is the 2015 Nissan GT-R really coming to India ? A recent article by a popular automobile magazine does indeed give a positive answer. Andy Palmer , CPO Nissan Motor Company , in a recent Interview with Zigwheels showed his interest, in bringing the 2-door sports coupe to India . He said that based on the current trend going on in the Indian market , it is to be believed that India is indeed ready for the GT-R . Some of his words from the Interview :
“I think GT-R is an obvious car to bring as a brand halo. I don’t think it will sell enormous number… maybe to a few cricketers I hope’ . Nissan had been contemplating of launching the GT-R in India for the past few years, and now feels that the market is ready for the iconic two-door sports coupe as it would help establish the Japanese car brand in the country”
He says that ” The car wouldn’t sell in Enormous number” and for good reasons too. If the current situation is to go by Nissan could only bring the car to India via the CBU ( Completely built unit ) route , and adding up the excise duties the car could be priced upwards of 1.7 Crores . Which is not actually Value for money stuff . However if you have the money to shell out , and wants to own a ‘Really’ fun to drive car providing great performance ,Handling, and enjoying an iconic status worldwide this one would be your choice . Maybe not the first , but a choice nonetheless .
