Mighty 2017 GT-R Drops into Westover on Wallisdown Road in Bournemouth

Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May – Two Day Preview Visit

The 2017 model Nissan GT-R will be making a brief weekend pit stop at Westover Nissan on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May, ahead of its September launch. The car – one of only two currently in Europe – is currently touring Nissan’s GT-R-approved showrooms in the UK, of which there are just 17.

On show for the May preview event will be a Daytona Blue GT-R in Prestige Grade, the top of the range specification. It will take pride of place in Westover Nissan’s showroom on Wallisdown Road in Bournemouth from 10:00am on Saturday 7th May until 4pm on Sunday 8th May.

“The Nissan GT-R first took the world by storm in 2007 and it’s about to set hearts racing all over again,” says Paul Hughes, General Sales Manager at Westover Nissan. “It combines exhilarating performance with luxury interiors and it absolutely blows its German competitors out of the water when it comes to value for money. It really needs to be seen … and, in due course, driven … to be believed!”

Westover Nissan will have a demonstrator model available for test drives in early September. Visitors can pre-order on the weekend of the preview and the first customer deliveries will be made in September.

Subtle refinements to the GT-R’s exterior have improved its aerodynamic efficiency and enhanced its sporty look. Acceleration and performance stay the same, so the GT-R still delivers 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and retains its top speed of 196mph, but both horsepower and torque have been upgraded.

The engine is, as before, hand-made - each one is individually assembled and tuned, then personalised with the engineer’s name plate.

Inside, the new GT-R’s interior is befitting of a premium sports car. It is available in three interior grades: Pure, Recaro and Prestige. Opt for Prestige and the GT-R features a high quality leather interior available in a choice of four colours (black, tan, ivory or red). The number of switches in the GT-R’s cabin has been reduced from 27 to just 11 and it now has an 8” touchscreen which includes integrated navigation and audio controls.

“Anybody interested in seeing the new GT-R is welcome to join us in the showroom on 7th or 8th May,” finishes Paul. The team here are looking forward to showing it off to visitors, especially as some of them will be seeing it for the first time too!”
