Do you love the Nissan GT-R? Ever wished you could own one? Then you are in luck because eBay, the world's largest auction website, is giving away a 2013 Nissan GT-R in their Fantasy Car Sweepstakes.
eBay is trying to promote their new social platform, eBay Garage, as a tie-in with this sweepstakes. The idea is to connect gearhead and auto enthusiasts all while you can buy stuff on eBay. Pretty smart if you ask me and giving away a Nissan GT-R is a good way to get thing going if you ask me.
To enter the contest it is not surprising that you need to open up an account on eBay Garage. I guess that is a small price to pay for a sweet supercar like the 2013 Nissan GT-R. Considering the the blog post about the contest generated 268 comments as of this writing it seems I am now the only one that wants a Nissan GT-R and will bend to eBay's criteria for the Fantasy Car Sweepstakes.
The Nissan GT-R features 545-horsepower engine and can go from 0-60 in around 3.2 seconds. As well the engine is turbocharged V6 with All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) which makes it a really good on twisty roads. The chief engineer's said it was designed to be driven by “Anyone, anytime, anywhere.” Sounds good to me!
Best part of winning a Nissan GT-R? Well it would be somewhat possible for an average Joe (or Jane) to pay the taxes on it. Since the Nissan GT-R is about $100,000 the taxes would be about $33,000. Probably more since the Nissan GT-R starts at $100k. Hopefully whoever wins it will have some money saved away and can pay the insurance on that a beautiful supercar.
The eBay Nissan GT-R Fantasy Car Sweepstakes runs from June 6th-July 4th. eBay will also be giving away $50 gift cards to to a lucky person each day the contest is open. That is a nice prize but I am pretty sure everyone is going to want to win the 2013 Nissan GT-R. The winner will be announced on July 22nd. Of course it is going to be me and not you! 🙂
