Yesterday, Oct. 27, the first 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO was delivered in the United States, according to a press release issued by Nissan the same day. The car was delivered to Matt McCulloh, a GT-R enthusiast that has waiting for this day for quite some time.
“It was like a surreal moment for me. I saw it, and it just took a second to register that this was finally my car. And that I was going to have the privilege to own the very first GT-R NISMO for the United States and be a part of the great 30-year history of the NISMO brand,” said McCulloh in the release.
For the delivery of the car, Nissan executives, such as Jess Simmons of Nissan Marketing, were present to shake the new owner’s hand as he took delivery of the car. Additionally, they sent a crew to his house to give his garage a makeover with NISMO flair.

“This car to me is like a brute-force tool. To me it is so purpose-built that I am going to do a lot of track,” said McCulloh. “I’m going to really use this car as far as track, autocross, a little drag-strip – so, you know, track and getting to spend some time in this great garage that I have here now.”
We’re happy to see that the first GT-R NISMO in the U.S. is in the hands of an excited enthusiast and someone who will not be shy to put it to work on the track.
