Nissan will offer you a 2017 GT-R Nismo for $176,585, including a $1,595 destination charge. And, to elaborate on the comparo in the intro, we'll mention the original 2009 model year GT-R came with a financial side of $69,850.

Back in 2007, when Godzilla was introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show, there was obviously no Nismo badge, but if we compare the 2017 Nismo to the 2016 Nismo, we'll find a pricing boost of around $10,000.

And, to drop the mandatory Porsche 911 comparison, we'll mention the ten grand mentioned above beats the pricing premium asked by the German automaker when introducing the 2017 911 Turbo (+$4,500) and Turbo S ($8,100).

And speaking of the Neunelfer rivalry, the 2017 Nismo has now reached the financial point where it almost ties its rear-engined enemy, as the 2017 911 Turbo S comes with an MSRP of $188,100 (plus destination charges). However, while the Porscha's optional extra list is a bit can sometimes turn into a trap, the only options for the Nismo have to do with paint.

Thankfully, though, Nissan has steer clear of trying to prove its supercar can beat the 911 Turbo on the Ring (remember the questionable tire details?), focusing on building a better car instead.

As such, the 2017 GT-R Nismo keeps the MY16 model's 600 hp twin-turbo V6, but introduces suspension and aerodynamic tweaks.

However, if you're looking for the affordable aura that allowed the R35 to take the fetishist's car label of the GT-R and turn the model into wide-audience proposal, the "base" $109,990 2017 GT-R might be the derivative for you.
