Sebastian Vettel is parting with another sports car from his collection. The four-time world champion has released the Nissan GT-R for sale. The Japan bomber has just 130 kilometers on the clock and is in immaculate condition.
Sebastian Vettel has finished Formula 1. The Heppenheimer apparently used the first few weeks as a racing pensioner to further muck out the garage in his Swiss adopted home. During the last winter break, Vettel parted ways in a big sale of five Ferraris, two Mercedes and one BMW . Now a Nissan GT-R has to leave the collection.
The sports cars simply don't fit in today's world and are difficult to reconcile with his activities in the field of environmental and climate protection, the Formula 1 star justified the sale. During his active career, Vettel was repeatedly accused of lacking credibility as a racing driver to support green projects.
By parting with his automotive treasures, the 35-year-old proves that he not only talks, but also acts. Sports car fans, on the other hand, will find it difficult to understand how it is so easy to part with the many dream cars. And the Nissan GT-R undoubtedly belongs in this category.
Vettel GT-R in new car condition
The vehicle of the R35 series is the special model "Black Edition", which has been in production since 2012. The Vettel car that was then manufactured for the Swiss market also dates from this year. The 3.8 liter V6 biturbo engine (RB26) under the hood of the "Godzilla" delivers 550 hp. The six-speed dual-clutch transmission distributes the power to all four wheels. This ensures a lot of grip from a standing start and a zero-to-100 time of 2.7 seconds (according to the manufacturer).
Sebastian Vettel has the car sold by the luxury and sports car experts from Mechatronik in Pleidelsheim, Swabia. The car can be viewed there on request and is available immediately, the dealer confirmed to auto motor und sport. However, if an interested party wants to look for quirks, he must bring a lot of time with him. The car is both optically and technically in immaculate new car condition.
The reason for this is the low mileage. Vettel has apparently hardly moved the car in the last ten years. So far there are just 150 kilometers on the clock. The low mileage and the prominent previous owner naturally also affect the price. 297,500 euros (incl. VAT) are being asked for the collector's item. In the gallery we show you some pictures of the deep black Japan bomber.
