The best deal in sports cars just got a little more expensive. Nissan announced pricing increase on the2009 GT-R due to increased raw materials costs. Prices have been increased by 10% or almost $7000. This raises the MSRP to $76,840 for the GT-R and $79,090 for the GT-R Premium model. This still isn’t too bad considering the GT-R runs with cars like the $135,000 Porsche 911 Turbo.

To date, approximately 70 percent of the first year allocation of GT-Rs for the United States market have been sold as part of a pre-sale program that has been underway since February 2008. The price increase does not affect customer cars that were in dealer’s hands on September 5th.

All 2009 Nissan GT-Rs are equipped with a standard 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 producing 480 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque, backed by an all-new, paddle-shifted, dual clutch rear transmission and a world’s first independent rear transaxle all-wheel drive system.
