MOTOR Magazine celebrates 50 Years of the Nissan GT-R in its September 2019 issue

A special celebration of Nissan’s greatest sports car achievement

MOTOR Magazine September 2019 Issue Preview

This is a big one. Not just because the new September 2019 issue of MOTOR Magazine has a few more pages, but because it’s an homage to one of the most revered Japanese cars of all time. The Nissan Skyline GT-R.

From the 1969 Hakosuka GT-R to the brand new 2020 R35 GT-R, Nissan’s most famous badge has been through highs and lows, but it’s been a journey well worth celebrating.

And that’s what our new issue does.

If the GT-R isn’t your thing, fear not. This issue of our mag still features other cars, news, reviews, and features that aren’t even Nissan-adjacent. Variety is the spice of life, after all.

You can find MOTOR at retailers around Australia. Or you can subscribe and save yourself some cash, there’s even a digital subscription.

Subscribers often receive their mags earlier, so you’ll get to see what MOTOR has to offer before anyone else.

Follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to interact with us, give us feedback, and get a peek behind the scenes.

And this week, check out the #GTRweek tag on Instagram to see what we’ve been sharing!
