Universal City Nissan

"1st GTR to Be delivered in the USA. Come and Meet Sreve Millen and the rest of the Nismo Group, Food and Drinks"





I believe someone is taking a delivery of the first Nissan GTR tonight at midnight (since the car is officially being delivered on 7/7).

I am not gonna make it, but thought some of you might be interested. There will be people from Nismo Group, and food/drinks, etc.

Interesting...I wonder how they claim to be the "first" when there are a bunch of other US-released GTRs already out. At a Nismo meet a few months back Superior Nissan had a US Model GTR on display. :shrug:

Yeah true.

I think this one of the first official delivery though. Universal City Nissan is the largest Nissan dealership, so they have done some special events in the past. They did unveiling of a GTR a couple of months ago, too.

Haha. Got an email from Mike Sage (whose family owns Univ. City Nissan) the other day, and didn't think about posting it until now.

It should be a fun event.

Mike Sage used to be on here and don't know if he still owns his '06 Solar Yellow Exige.

Midnight is nothing to these guys as that's about the time they start to really sale cars :D

The guy who got the car already owns one that he imported from Japan months ago, sort of takes the excitement out of the delivery :rolleyes:

Going to the first delivery meet for the GTR is like going to a topless bar for a fatchick's first show

So, maybe if you drink enough beer it will look hot?

With the high gas price, I m not surprised with MSRP, although the GTR buyers wouldn't be worried about gas price at all....
