Default nismo

the nismo kits are available forsale only locally in japan rite now! and as far as the 800 bhp goes there is no car in that tuning range right now! the highest tunes car must be the 650hp amuse tuners! and the kit hasnt been offered in the market as yet.it will be in a couple of days.the only kit offered rite now in the market is the HKS GT570 kit which has only ten kits available which have already been sold out to high profile clients like the sultan of brunei! as for the reflash it offers around 50-60hp rite now with other parts like the exhaust.

very ugly car

the zero to whatever specs don't work in the real world.

This is just a machine - a truly great car needs beauty too.

Hi,

Does the GTR not resemble an Evo 10 from the front. Looks quite similar to me.

Nice pics.

Nice catch Malhaar. This car is often seen at Nariman Point as the office of the owner is there. The car pictures you would find on earlier posts.

The Cobb Tuning Access Port adds a ton of power! I drove my GTR before and after and it makes a huge difference. For the price, this is the first mod I would do hands down. See the dyno -

Your Indidgo is prettier then the GTR. The front of the GTR looks like someone put a fibreglass body kit onto the an old skyline - with the grill bit still showing.

This car will not go down in history as a classic - its too ugly for that.

Come on Salty_Dog.. Just because you digg classics and P cars, doesn't mean you go on flaming exotics .. Sure , you have a right to hold a different opinion , but the GTR is not as bad as you put it across. Its a japanese car, gotta be sharp and razor and all that and that is what it is.

My Indigo is a great car, but i wouldn't say that great

I personally think it is a fantastic car, one of my favorites actually! It may not become a true classic, but a cult classic for sure! Car has a huge fanbase, and because of that I think it will become classic in that sense, sort of like how the Honda NSX became a classic.

customs duty @ 114% = 3819000 INR

Ex -showroom mumbai price = 7169000 INR
road tax @14% = 1000000 INR
insurance @ 3.5% = 208000 INR

Dealer/Agent margin or handling charges = 500000 INR assumed price

Nissan GTR landed price in Mumbai should be between 8300000 to 8700000 INR based on the way it has been imported. Also note that delivery period for GTR is Japan is obviously less compared to other countries. Initially it was said that people are paying premium for early deliveries. I have not taken that into account here.

Hello Dipen,and what if I do not import through mumbai showroom and directly import it from Japan.That is,suppose I know an importer.
