SPOTTED ON THROTL - 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition

FOR SALE BY: mpw5097 (on

PRICE: $66,500


I'm selling my beloved R35 GTR as my family is relocating in the next few months and I will not have enough garage space at our new house. Serious buyers only. No tire kickers. No test drives without a bank loan pre-approval / proof of funds.

The vehicle is in excellent condition and I have the clean title in hand. Non-smoker and no accidents. The paint is in near perfect condition as it had a clear bra installed on the front end and rockers when brand new. These have kept the paint looking very sharp. It has always been garage kept and it does not have any dents. The front lip only has very minor scratching underneath which is to be expected as the car sits very low from the factory. You will get two sets of keys, factory manuals, a stack of maintenance records and receipts for the brand new tires/new battery/performance optimization service.

It is in excellent condition. All services are up to date. I just spent a few thousand dollars for it to have the Nissan GT-R Specific Performance Optimization Service done 300 miles ago at Larry Miller Nissan in July, along with four new tires, an alignment, and a new battery at that time. As soon as it rolled off the showroom floor it received window tint and the clear bra installed on the front and rockers. It has the factory reverse back-up camera option and the carpeted floor mat option. It has COBB Air Intakes but is otherwise completely stock. I have never launched the car and only take it out in very good weather. I have three other vehicles so my GT-R stays parked in the garage and it only comes out on sunny days. I'm very anal about my cars and the condition of this both inside and outside is superb.

This is the Black Edition model ( also called the BE ) which features lightweight RAYS wheels, unique Black/Red Recaro seats, black headliner, and various other upgrades that the lower GT-R Premium model does not have. This is equipped with the fantastic BOSE audio system and factory in-dash navigation system.

Some cool facts about the 2012 model. This was the first year of the many big upgrades and updates. The 2012+ is the DBA variant whereas the 2009-2011 was the CBA chassis name. The 2012+ revised GT-R features an engine with revised mapping, changes to valve timing, larger inlets and a revised exhaust system which boosts rated power to over 530hp. Changes also include a new more rigid front strut bar made from carbon composite, larger front brake rotors, and new lighter & stiffer wheels. Cosmetic changes include a new front bumper with integrated LEDs. The front bumper improves cooling to the radiator and front brakes while reducing drag. A new rear diffuser improves downforce and also includes additional rear cooling ducts. The interior was revised to improve the quality. The 2012+ versions also have the new HDD CARWINGS navigation system with enhanced entertainment features, bluetooth audio and even a USB port for iPod connectivity / Android charging.
