Nissan suits are blaming a surge in raw material costs for a hike in the indomitable GT-R’s base price from $69,850 to $76,840. That’s still an incredible buy for supercar performance, but we have to think that the car’s popularity stateside had more to do with the bump in coinage than the cost of carbon fiber. Of course, if you want a premium all-wheel drive terror, you’ll have fess up $79,090. So far, about 70 percent of the car’s destined for U.S. sales are accounted for via the GT-R presale program, meaning that if you want one, you better hop on it.
