I thought that was a known fact?

Ugh, GTR looks even uglier next to the Porsche.

Who said anything about being a beater? I just read that it was a better street car and unless it is only on the track it is more applicable.

Nice writeup

This car was featured on the Autocar videos. This is the first UK GTR. I suspect the person writing this blog has to be an auto journalist.

While I'm not a fan by any means of the background/font color schemes (my eyes are still bleeding), that was a damn good write up.

GTR is living up to its old standards in the new world right? i still don't understand justifying paying so much for a nissan, but this thing is getting so much hype. Also do they come in 6MT? or only paddles?

paddles only...which is a real let down to me. but if i had to deal with a GTR that only came with paddle shift, i don't think i'd suffer too much .

I haven't heard of any plans from Nissan to offer a traditioinal 6MT, but that would have been a nice option.

I have to say seeing this car in person at the auto show sent shivers down my spine. It was even more beautiful in person than any picture I had seen up to that point. It's clean lines and aggressive stance definitly get your attention and the rear end means business.

I only wish I had the money to afford one
