It seems a little frivolous to be offering free servicing on a £69,950 supercar, but Nissan seem to think it will make all the difference in convincing would-be 911 buyers to choose its top-range model instead.

Whilst affordability and peace of mind are key attributes of the rest of Nissan’s range, we think it sits a little uneasily alongside a car which can lap the Nurburgring in less than 7 minutes and 30 seconds, but hey, let’s not look a gift horse in the mouth.

The deal now being offered by Nissan is a free three year servicing plan, along with three years RAC cover, for the 2011 version GT-R.

2011 Nissan GT-R

The free offer of the servicing plan is included when purchasing a GT-R through Nissan’s own personal contract plan (PCP) known as Preferences. However if you choose to finance your car any other way, or indeed you already have a 2011 GT-R, then the servicing plan can be purchased for a one-off payment of just £499.

Nissan’s new servicing plan applies only to the 2011 version of the GT-R and covers a three year period or up to the equivalent mileage of 27,000. All labour, parts, oils and fluids required to carry out the routine maintenance, by a Nissan High Performance Centre, are fully covered by the policy.

All Nissan High Performance Centres (NHPC) are specially trained and equipped to look after the Nissan sports car range and are sole suppliers of the GT-R, so with 19 of them located across the UK you’ll not have too far to travel.

This offer is for a limited period of time and further details can be obtained from any of the NHPCs.
