Be an Egoist !

03.03.2011 / Cairo - Tokyo - Dubai /

Unlike in Europe, the Nissan GT-R is extremely popular and successful in the Middle East. That is why the new version of the GT-R will probably be extremely successful in the gulf region.

The new version of the GT-R which the Japanese car maker Nissan has unveiled recently, is an exclusive edition of the 2012 Nissan GT-R, called the Nissan GT-R Egoist, with exclusive interior options made to individual driver specifications.

With a price tag of 180,000 euros, the GT-R Egoist sells at double the price of the standard version which is sold at approximately 90,000 euros. This hefty extra charge provides the owner with an exclusive interior color combination possibility, in addition to the tailored and individualized sound system.

The all leather cockpit can be ordered from a selection of 84 different color combinations and 20 different leathers with the seat covers done up by the Bavarian specialist firm Seton.
Beside the premium leather upholstery, a Wajima Maki-e steering wheel emblem, the Nissan GTR Egoist is also equipped with a state of the art Bose sound system which is "exclusively tuned according to the driving position of each driver."

Beneath the bonnet the model is based on the standard version of the 3.8-litre V6 twin turbo engine capable of producing an output of 530 hp and catapulting the car like a runaway train from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds.

With all the above-mentioned reference values, the Nissan GTR Egoist targets the Porsche 911 Turbo S, the Ferrari 458 Italia and Lamborgini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera in terms of performance and exclusivity.

The Nissan GTR "Egoist" is surely a Samurai fighter with an exclusive character, but unfortunately Nissan Middle East did not announce yet if and when this GTR Egoist would be launched in the Middle East.
