So, you think the GT-R is overpriced huh?

This should be somewhat eye opening for those that claim the GT-R is too expensive. It's a video of the assembly line.

The only time I have seen this kind of attention to detail on an assembly line is at a Porsche, Ferrari, or Lambo plant. It may be known that the engines and drivetrains are hand assembled but now it looks as though nearly the whole car is hand assembled. Add this to the world beating performance and the car becomes an absolute deal at $70k.

Who ever thinks the GT-R is overpriced is an idiot. And I make no apologies about it. I cant wait for the review to start poping up. Seem like TopGear magazine is the first.

Re: So, you think the GT-R is overpriced huh?

Seriously, and people who thinks it's too heavy is also pretty narrow minded. I went to the Boston Auto show today and finally saw the GT-R close up. Pretty **** small compared to the Challenger, and the Camaro. Those things are HUGE!

Re: So, you think the GT-R is overpriced huh?

I saw it at the boston auto show too and I was pretty impressed with it. It was parked right next to a z and the size difference wasn't very much. Although, I have to say I was more impressed with the camaro and challenger than I was with the gtr. It was partly because the camaro and challenger were on raised spining platforms and the gtr was just parked on the floor but still, it just doesn't have the same appeal to it. But with 480 HP and 0-60 in the 3 second range, it is deffinately a steal at $70,000.

Re: So, you think the GT-R is overpriced huh?

After cruising a few car lots and checking out (sticker shock) prices on everyday assembly line vehicles with too many options, I have to agree that the GT-R seems like a deal for someone with the moey to spend.

-Diesel 4x4 Ford F-350 dually for $54,600

-Lincoln Navigator for $61,400

-Honda minivan for $39,200

Yea, I guess the GTR is a deal.

1971 240Z series 1 with a 22,000 serial#, all original and 99% rust free.

I no longer have the black bumperless 78 with the ZX drivetrain.

Re: So, you think the GT-R is overpriced huh?

honda mini van for 39,200 are you kidding me? are sure it's not 29,200?we have an 03 loaded and paid 28,000 before tax and license.wow cars are really climbing.i'm not sure if i'm one of theose guys that said it was overpriced.but i did say it looked like an overweight pig!but i guess since i haven't seen it in person and pictures do ad quite a few pounds.i'll just wait until i see it to really pass judgement.i will say i'll stand my ground on the whole looks apect.the lines could have been better.it's that whole chick comparison thing "i bet you wouldn't kick her out of bed would ya",well **** no!plus i don't believe it will be mass produced like the Z so that's kind of cool.you'd probably be one of the few in your town with one.
