If you’re waiting for a 2009 Nissan GT-R to officially get your motor running for summer, Nissan says U.S. deliveries begin July 7.

But if you don’t already have your name on one, you may be disappointed. More than 1700 of the 2400 expected to be allocated to the U.S. have been spoken for.

Buzz has remained strong since news that the fifth-generation GT-R would be the first to be sold stateside. The car has a 480-hp, twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 engine and six-speed dual-clutch automated-manual transmission—a combination that enabled it to lap the Nürburgring in 7 minutes, 29 seconds.

The car is supposed to start at $70,850 (including $1000 in destination fees) for the GT-R and $72,900 for the GT-R Premium model—before price gouging. Only certified Nissan dealers that have met a series of sales, service, and facilities requirements (including having a master technician to service the supercar), can sell the GT-R. For a list of the 671 dealers qualified to sell the car, go to nissanusa.com.
