Rated as 5/5 on Motor Trend and 9.5/10 on Kelley Blue Book, the 2014 Nissan GT-R has what it takes to keep up with a Lamborghini, Ferrari, or McLaren. In other words, get a Nissan GT-R if you can’t afford a Lambo.
If you think this AWD supercar that pumps out 545 horsepower couldn’t ever beat an exotic high-performance car, think again. Motor Trend tested it against several cars, and they found that it was slightly quicker than the McLaren MP4-12C and just as quick as the Porsche 911 Turbo S and the Bugatti Veyron.
Bottom line: the Nissan GT-R is a solid car. That’s why this GT-R caught our eye.
Here, we have a 2014 Nissan GT-R Black Edition with $60K in modifications. This supercar is even faster than the stock version, topping off at 640 horsepower. With only 12,000 miles under its belt and all of its maintenance up-to-date, this GT-R has a shockingly low asking price of $78,000.
The eBay auction just ended with 14 bids, but its reserve price was not met. If you ask us, it’s quite a bargain because the 2014 GT-R started at over $100,000 brand new three years ago. And did we mention the $60K in mods?
A local R35 tuning shop (in Vancouver, Canada) performed all of the mods, some of which include:
- A Liberty Walk GT-R Widebody Kit complete with a swan wing
- Downpipes, mid-pipe, and exhaust
- 3” intakes
- 1000cc injectors
- Twin fuel pumps
- A Cobb Accessport V2 with a TCM module
- A Dyno-tuned engine to run on 91 octane fuel
The interior looks untouched, but we don’t mind at all because Nissan did a great job designing the GT-R’s interior anyway.
“[The] car runs and drives like stock, with a nice power increase,” wrote the eBay seller. S/he also wrote that this GT-R was a show car – we won’t be surprised one bit if we find out that this GT-R has won a bunch of awards. The GTR appears flawless in terms of performance and appearance, save for one little blemish…
The GT-R’s Only Flaw: Scratched Up Wheel Lips
The beautiful custom PUR wheels (as well as the Toyo R888 performance tires) have three minor scratches, as shown in the photos. Ouch! PUR wheels aren’t cheap, so the buyer might have to consider risking further damage by repairing these scratches or, even better, covering up these scratches with RimBlades.
If we were the buyer, we’d go with black RimBlades. What color would you choose?
