Is this Nissan GT-R driver too playful Need for Speed? In Rotterdam, the Netherlands, a Nissan GT-R was stopped for going too fast. Speed violations are not all. Now the driver has a problem!
Rotterdam police reported on Instagram that the driver of the black Nissan GT-R is said to have dueled a BMW. While the BMW driver was sneaking his way through the police loopholes, the GT-R driver was out of luck: he was stopped.
Instead of the allowed 50 km/h, the police laser gun shows 159 km/h – in the city! A standard GT-R with at least 550 hp has a top speed of 153 km/h minus tolerances and is therefore more than three times faster than allowed.
Nissan GT-R discontinued with expired license plates
But that wasn’t the only offence, because during an inspection, officers found that the Nissan was traveling with a German export or export license plate.
The problem: The markings expire on September 21, 2021. In fact, this means that the GT-R is not only going too fast, it’s also without insurance coverage.
What happened to sports cars now?
According to a police Instagram post, the prosecutor’s office will soon decide what to do with the Nissan GT-R, which is worth between 60,000 and 75,000 euros. Meanwhile, Nissan drivers might just have a Playstation to quench their thirst for speed.
