2009 Nissan GT-R: Smacked in Its Rear

March 17, 2009

See the two dark circles just above the Nissan GT-R's lower rear fascia? That's what happens when the Pontiac GTO behind you fails to stop in slow-moving freeway traffic.

The GT0's young driver admitted to being so taken with the GT-R, he rear-ended the car while trying to get a closer look.

The impact was minimal, but enough to leave two screw gouges and a light plate frame impression on the supercar's rear end.

Unfortunately, our local dealer reports there's additional damage under the skin as well.

Estimate for repair: $3,626.18.

Ouch.
