Nissan is getting the car famously termed as the ‘Godzilla’ , the GT-R to India by the end of this year .
“It is easy to launch a car, but what’s the point if we cannot offer after-sales support after we sold a car that would cost about Rs 2 crore,” said Guillaume Sicard, president of operations, Nissan India. For the handful of GT-Rs in India which have been directly imported by their owners (the list includes cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar), Nissan flies technicians in from Dubai to get them serviced, which is not an ideal solution.
That was the primary reason behind the delay of the launch. There are only four engineers in the world who are allowed to hand-assemble the GT-R’s twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 engine.
The car is just 1.7 tons having a 6 speed gearbox and requires high octane fuel.
Well, we know many can’t wait for this. Stay tuned for more updates!
