The time has finally come and we are extremely excited to announce the winner of our eBay Garage Fantasy Car Sweepstakes! On August 19, Frank Roberts became the proud – although originally skeptical – new owner of a 2014 Nissan GT-R®!
The contest, which started back on June 6 and ran through July 4, gave eBay Motors fans the opportunity to put their name in the proverbial hat to win this brand-new sports car-borderline-supercar.
For those that didn’t enter, let’s have a quick review of what makes the Nissan GT-R® so special, and what you missed out on. First off, this rocket ship is powered by a twin-turbo VR38DETT 3.8-liter V6, producing an immense 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque. That power is then fed to all four wheels via a paddle-shifted sequential six-speed dual clutch transmission, good for three-second 0-60 mph times. Stopping power is handled by 15.35-inch front and 15.0-inch rear Brembo full-floating cross-drilled two-piece rotors with radial-mounted Brembo monoblock six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers.
Interior amenities weren’t neglected either, with features like a video game-inspired multi-function display, navigation system featuring easy-to-use touch pad, a specially designed 11-speaker Bose® audio system, standard USB iPod® interface, streaming Audio via Bluetooth® and carbon fiber interior trim. Frank, we hope you know how lucky you really are!
We gave everyone and their mothers a chance to win this beast. There were a couple of entry options – you could have created a profile to enter through the eBay Garage website, used the eBay Garage mobile app (Frank’s method of choice) or even used snail mail.
When we contacted Frank to congratulate him, he was a bit skeptical that we actually selected him as the new owner of the GT-R®. He went so far as to call us here at eBay to confirm what he was hearing! “I could not believe it was true, but heard back from eBay and found that I was a lucky man,” said Frank.
We couldn’t be happier for Mr. Roberts, especially now that he finally understands that he’s won. With all of the cool parts with which he can start tricking out his new ride on eBay, we’re definitely looking forward to seeing more photos of his 2014 Nissan GT-R in his eBay Garage as it progresses through his ownership!
At eBay Motors, we’re proud to be consistently ranked as one of the top automotive sites on the Web by Nielsen//NetRatings, and one of the largest and most trusted automotive marketplaces in the world.
