July 2017 Around Town


Nissan celebrated the Nashville Predators’ run to the Stanley Cup Finals by donating a specially created 2017 Nissan GT-R supercar to the Nashville Predators Foundation, which supports a variety of local Nashville charities. The $109,990 GT-R Premium model is custom-painted in Preds’ official colors and graphics. The Supercar will be auctioned off as the featured attraction at an upcoming Predators Foundation event. Bids may also be placed online at Nissan.Gesture.com or by texting “Nissan” to 52182.

“Not only is this one-of-a-kind car going to be the envy around Smashville, it will also benefit many local charitable and community service organizations through the winning bid,” said Predators president and CEO, Sean Henry. “With Nissan’s support for our community and passion for our team, we get to reach thousands more individuals all across Tennessee.”

The 2017 Nissan GT-R Premium features a 565-horsepower twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine.

The Nashville Predators Foundation strives to meet the educational, social, health and cultural needs of the community by offering unique resources and financial support to local youth-oriented organizations. The Foundation has donated more than $1 million to community organizations during the 2016-17 season.
