Added content, bigger price

Nissan has released details about the US-spec 2011 GT-R.

The biggest change is the elimination of the base model, which was priced from $80,790 (in the 2010 model year). For 2011, the sole model is the $84,060 GT-R Premium (a $1020 increase over the 2010 GT-R Premium). Options include 'Super Silver' paint ($3,000), ultra-high performance tires (no charge), floor mats ($280), and a cold weather package (no charge).

Besides the revised pricing structure, the 2011 GT-R has a retuned suspension, strengthened rear bushings, darker wheel center caps, and a thicker layer of clear coat on the front and rear fascias. Other updates include auto on/off headlights, speed-sensitive windshield wipers, USB/iPod/Bluetooth connectivity, and a navigation system with XM NavTraffic and NavWeather capability.

The 2011 GT-R is currently on sale at select Nissan dealers.

i see no problem here. once you cross the line of paying for a $50K car I'm not convinced this type of price change is that big a deal.

Yeah but in all fairness, considering "retuned suspension, strengthened rear bushings, darker wheel center caps, and a thicker layer of clear coat on the front and rear fascias. Other updates include auto on/off headlights, speed-sensitive windshield wipers, USB/iPod/Bluetooth connectivity, and a navigation system with XM NavTraffic and NavWeather capability." , a 1000 dollar price increase is a bargain, imho.

People were paying over sticker for them anyway. Perhaps the extra 4k won't make a difference. Either way, I wish...

I don't think it's that expensive, considering it's as fast as a 200.000 $ Ferrari or Aston.

That was a big jump in price from during the first and second year. It's too bad it is no longer in the R34's price range.
