2009 Nissan Gt-r on 2040-cars
Jupiter, Florida, United States

This GT-R, car #67, was the first GT-R to run and finish the Gumball 3000. That event took place in May 2009 from
L.A. to Miami.
Preserving that special part of the car’s history, this GT-R still retains the Gumball 3000 event decals and the
custom electronics that were installed to avoid the “state revenue collectors” during the “rally.”
Only three teams received awards in 2009. This GT-R and the drivers, were awarded “Best Navigators.” A
laser-engraved “Gumball 3000” Macbook 5,1 was presented to us at the award ceremony. The Gumball 3000 Macbook,
along with some new, unworn Gumball 3000 apparel (T-shirts and baseball caps), is included in the purchase of this
Here are what I'd consider to be the highlights of this car:
One owner - 2009 Nissan GT-R Premium.
Titanium over Black. Mint condition!
Purchased new in September 2008. Never abused. Never “launched.”
Always stored in climate controlled facility.
Clear title. No accidents. No curb rash on the wheels. No repaints.
Original window sticker in perfect condition, owner’s manual, warranty books and keys.
Always serviced at the Nissan dealer by trained GT-R technicians. Have all service receipts.
New Bridgestone run flat tires – with a couple hundred miles on them.
Original brakes (and dealer says the car doesn’t need new ones yet - how's that for a pampered life?)
100% stock, unmodified drivetrain
OEM JDM clear front-side marker lights – installed (original amber lights included)
OEM JDM clear rear market lights – included (not installed – didn’t want to remove rear bumper)
17,552 miles on the odometer (3,500 of those miles were racked up during the May 2009 Gumball 3000 rally
The car’s custom electronics package (which helped to avoid even a single traffic citation - since new), was
installed by the artisans at Technicar in West Palm Beach, and includes:
Escort Passport 9500ci, surgically cut into rear-view mirror bezel and dash (see picture)
Front and rear laser jammers
Brake light flasher & disable switch
GPS-computer inhibit switch (allows co-pilot to update NAV while car in motion)
Remote CB radio with detachable antenna
Uniden Police band scanner
Upgraded iPod interface
This GT-R has been part of the Styles Collection from new and is currently on display at our automotive museum in
We're die-hard collector of ‘67-‘73 American and 1990’s Japanese muscle and would entertain trades. Right now
we are looking for a low-mileage, unmodified ‘93-‘98 MKIV Supra Turbo 6-speed and a ’97-’05 first-gen Acura

If you've been keeping up with our long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder coverage, you already know that, generally speaking, we dig it. After racking up 21,000 miles (and climbing!) on our dear Sweet Brown, we've become very, very familiar with the Pathfinder package as a whole, and many of us actually prefer it over competitors like the Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Traverse.
For 2014, Nissan has added a new hybrid option for its Pathfinder, using an all-new powertrain that will also be shared with the CUV's Infiniti-badged QX60 sibling. As far as fuel economy is concerned, our long-term Pathfinder has had no problem hitting its EPA-estimated numbers of 19 miles per gallon city and 25 mpg highway, but this new hybrid model is said to be good for an increase in overall economy - 25/28 mpg (city/highway) when equipped with front-wheel drive and 25/27 mpg with optional four-wheel drive.
We recently took the 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid for a quick spin around the city streets of Nashville, TN. And while our time with the non-hybrid Pathfinder has been pretty enjoyable overall, at first blush, we're having a tougher time warming up to this electrified variant.
The 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo has officially bowed at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Wearing a full body kit that serves up 37-percent more downforce than the standard front and rear fascias, the tuned hatchback also comes equipped with larger 18-inch wheels and a lowered suspension. Up front, LED daytime running lights join the festivities as well as contrasting side-view mirror covers and wider fender flares. Inside, buyers can expect to find a new sports steering wheel clad in Alcantara, as well as a set of Nismo seats stitched with red accents.
Nismo also cranked up the power on the Juke's turbocharged direct-injection 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The Juke Nismo delivers 197 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, compared to the 188 hp and 177 lb-ft available in stock configuration. Buyers can have the engine with either a six-speed manual transmission or CVT gearbox, and the Juke Nismo can also be had with either all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. Check out the full press release below for more information.
"You're a long way from home!"
When I signed up to drive a pre-production version of the Nissan NV200 Taxi, I expected to have a higher-than-normal level of interaction with the public at large. However, while I was hoping for unsuspecting Ann Arborites to perhaps hail me down, or maybe even get a hop-in when stopped at an intersection, I didn't really think I'd be hassled in parking lots so much. And yet, almost as if all of the Dad-Joke energy in the universe was drawn to my tall, yellow ride, seemingly everywhere I parked I heard some iteration of the phrase above.
Har har, guys.
