Another nice confirmation for the upcoming SA Festival of Motoring has to be the official South African debut of the new 2017 Nissan GT-R. Nissan South Africa confirmed today that their new 408 kW supercar will hit the track for the first time in SA. It will be the first, and possibly the only public viewing of it. The first shipment of GT-Rs is expected to arrive in South Africa mid-September and all vehicles in this shipment have already been sold.
“We cannot think of a more perfect setting to launch the new Nissan GT-R than at the refurbished Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit. Visitors to the festival will not only have the opportunity to view the new model at our stand, but they can vie for a chance to go for a hot lap in a new GT-R around Kyalami!” says Xavier Gobille, Managing Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Nissan South Africa.
Visitors to the Nissan stand will have an opportunity to view the new GT-R both inside and out. Also on display will be a selection of previous generation GT-R. From the infamous 1971 2000 GT-R, the birth of Godzilla in 1988 with the R32 GT-R to the newly unveiled MY17 GT-R.
