This Is the Cheapest Nissan GT-R For Sale on Autotrader

Here’s the cheapest Nissan GT-R currently listed for sale on Autotrader. It’s a 2009 model with an accident-free history — and it’s listed for just $47,000. The drawback: It has almost 90,000 miles, suggesting it’s been used as a daily driver since new.

As you probably know, the GT-R is Nissan’s crazy super-sports car, and it’s faster than everything in the world, and blah blah blah. As you may know, used GT-Rs don’t depreciate much. Demand is high, and these haven’t fallen into the typical used-car realm like many vehicles. In 2009, when this GT-R was new, the base price was around $73,000 — and the slow depreciation curve is proven by the fact that this one is the cheapest GT-R on Autotrader, and yet it’s still worth 63 percent of the original MSRP — 9 years after it was first sold.

Still, as GT-Rs go, this one is certainly considered cheap, and the reason is the mileage: Most GT-Rs are tucked away as second or third cars, but this one was driven — and driven a lot. The Carfax report shows it was sold new in New Jersey and the first owner drove it daily, with subsequent owners doing the same. It appears the current owner purchased this GT-R in 2015 and has driven it about 10,200 miles a year ever since. Now it’s just shy of 90,000 miles, which surely makes it among the highest-mileage GT-R models on the market.

But while it’s high-mileage, it’s still a GT-R — and that means it’s highly cool, with big power and some add-ons that include a few cosmetic modifications. The listing also notes the transmission was replaced in 2017 with a transmission from a 2014 GT-R that had 23,000 miles — potentially troubling, though transmission problems aren’t uncommon on these. Now it’s offered by a private seller in San Diego, and it seems to be getting many views — no surprise, given that price point. Find a Nissan GT-R for sale

  1. I daily drove my 2009 to a little over 90k miles and had zero issues. I didn’t drive it easily either. Take care of it and it will take care of you! Don’t be afraid of a high mileage GT-R

  2. I am sold on the allure of the GT-R, but I don’t think I could ever buy one used.  They have to be ragged out like a teenager rags out a Mustang, right?  Plus,   launch control I’m sure is shot, with toothpicks and gorilla glue holding the transmission in place.  

    • My buddy has a 2013 with bolt ons and a tune and it puts down 600 whp/650 wtq and its tracked alot with zero issues. He got it with 11K miles and it now has 18K. This thing has been launched repeatedly on slicks probably over 100 times by now and the transmission is fine. The early ones had issues, but not the later ones.  

  3. A big reason for the GT-R maintaining its value is the ever-increasing prices of new GT-Rs.  You see a similar situation with Porsches  

    • Also, the majority of the cars sold the first few years had a market adjustment tacked on.  The $26k in depreciation might seem small, but the owner may have paid $40k over sticker in the first place.

  4. I would’ve thought these would be cheaper by now. Shows how much Nissan actually undercharged for these new in ’09. Now they are reaching $120ks which is sort of steep.
