We knew it was bound to happen, but we didn't know to what extent Nissan dealers would be gouging enthusiasts here in the States for the first legal taste of GT-R goodness. Our friend Ty over at ExhuastNote.com decided to do some leg work to find out what markup retailers would be charging for the new Nissan GT-R, and after calling 15 dealerships throughout California, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Virginia and Washington the markups ranged from $20,000 to $60,000 over the GT-R's $69k base price. As Ty pointed out, that could get you a new 350Z and a Sentra.
With only 1,500 examples being available during the first year, this is no real surprise. Supply and demand is in full effect, and for the time being, only the most financially solvent and patient among us will be able to get their hands on Nissan's newest hotness.
