Exeter Nissan Customer Nick Coombes Meets Gran Turismo Sensation Jann Mardenborough: A Memorable Throwback!

Back in 2015, an unforgettable moment unfolded at Exeter Nissan when Nick Coombes, a delighted customer, became the very first person in the UK to receive the extraordinary Nissan GT-R Nismo R35.

For Nick, the experience of being the first owner of the GT-R Nismo in the country added an exhilarating layer of excitement. His enthusiasm knew no bounds when he purchased the car from our Exeter Nissan dealership. Reflecting on that memorable day, he shared, “Once you’ve owned a GT-R nothing else will do. This is my third GT-R and as soon as I knew the GT-R Nismo was being made I knew I had to have one.”

Captured in the image below is Nick Coombes, proudly revealing his latest acquisition - the third Nissan GT-R obtained from Exeter Nissan. Assisting him with the unveiling is Matthew Holcombe, Group Managing Director.

Looking Ahead to the upcoming Gran Turismo Film

The Nissan GT-R Nismo is a testament to the spirit of innovation and engineering excellence, pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of supercars. Its story, combined with the passion and skill of drivers like Jann Mardenborough, continues to inspire automotive enthusiasts around the globe.

Interestingly, Jann Mardenborough, the same talented racing driver who graced Nick Coombes with an unforgettable track tutorial, is also the inspiration behind the new Gran Turismo film set to hit the screens this month.

The new Gran Turismo film, set to captivate audiences this month, takes us on an adrenaline-pumping journey through the world of high-speed racing and automotive passion. Inspired by the iconic racing video game franchise, the film brings to life the thrilling adventures that car enthusiasts have come to love over the years.

In conclusion, the first-hand experience of Nick Coombes with the Nissan GT-R Nismo and the mentorship of Jann Mardenborough on the Thruxton racing circuit symbolised the perfect fusion of automotive prowess and driving expertise. As we eagerly await the release of the Gran Turismo film, we can't help but admire the legacy of the GT-R Nismo and the spirit of innovation that continues to shape the world of high-performance cars.
