Nissan has introduced three years free servicing and RAC for buyers of the 2011 Nissan GT-R. But only if you finance the GT-R with Nissan.
The 2011 Nissan GT-R is an astonishing car. It’s also a real bargain in comparison to any other supercar. And be in no doubt, the GT-R is a supercar.
Is there any other car, at almost any price, that can ferry four in relative comfort and yet out run a Porsche 911 Turbo?
Not just the 911 Turbo, but almost any other car you can think of. The Pagani Huayra? Slower. Ferrari 458 Italia? A snail. Even the new McLaren MP4-12C can’t keep up with Godzilla.
And at £70,000 you’re paying a big chunk less than the 911 and less than half of any of the others. And servicing is cheap in comparison to the eye-watering bills you’ll get from the others, particularly McLaren.
But servicing still isn’t cheap. So to make the 2011 GT-R the almost perfect everyday supercar Nissan are bolting on a three year free servicing pack for new GT-Rs together with three years RAC. But with a caveat or two.
The main caveat is that you have to buy your new GT-R with Nissan Preferences, the Nissan in-house finance arm. Which means they’re making a few grand out of your finance and giving you back a percentage. But it’s still a deal.
The other caveat is a fairly strict mileage restriction – a maximum of 27,000 miles, which probably says more than Nissan would like to admit about the long-term fragility of the GT-R. Or maybe we’re just cynics.
But fear not if you’ve already bought a 2011 GT-R, or would rather use your own cash or get finance from elesehwre. You can still avail yourslef of the three years servicing by stumping up £499.
For that £499 you get scheduled servicing for three years (or, as already noted, 27k miles) including labour, parts and consumables.
Which seems a rather decent deal.
