It can be yours is you’re willing to dish out the $89,000 (approx. $120,000 CAD) asking price.
Nissan’s latest and greatest GT-R supercar retails for a cool $125,000. Not exactly chump change. But even though its 600-horsepower turbocharged V6 is among the most exciting on the planet, for a fraction of the cost, you could own a custom GT-R that will, quite literally, blow it out of the water.
With an asking price of $89,000 (approx. $120,000 CAD), this custom 2009 GT-R is up for sale on eBay. Under the hood is the same 3.8-litre V6 from the factory, but this time it’s been tuned to produce a whopping 725 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. That makes it, certifiably, one of the fastest GT-Rs in the world. And with just 9,200 original miles (14,805 kilometres) to boot.
With lap records at Watkins Glen (2:09), New Jersey Motorsports Park (1:03:48), Virginia International Raceway (1:39), and Circuit of the Americas (2:24:20), there are no shortage of accolades. A total of $120,000 (approx. $160,000 CAD) has been invested in parts and contracts, not including the more than 2,000 man hours invested by the owner.
An Alpha 9 AMS upgrade is to thank for all that added power – a package alone that costs $28,000 (approx. $38,000 CAD). On race fuel, it will send a total of 950 horsepower to the crank. On pump gas, it’s still capable of churning out an impressive 850 horsepower.
To help manage all that extra oomph, a number of aero enhancements have been made to the exterior, including a noticeably more downforce-friendly rear wing, larger vents on the front fascia, and new wheels and tires. The interior follows a similar racy theme with Recaro seats and a full roll cage.
A total of 19 days are left on the auction with the aforementioned "Buy It Now" price of $89,000.
