Interesting car for sure, but is there any way to buff out all the ugliness? I really like the power and technology of this beast, but damn, it sure is FUGLY!

+1 Why couldn't they just copy the old Skyline exactly and make a few changes?

what? just because the car is fugly and appears to be a ricer (which is what i said from the first time concept pics came out) doesn't make it a worse performer than BMWs.

you can't argue that if you put even an M6 on a racetrack agaist the gt-r, the m6 could actually hold up. this is not just about 0-60 in 3.5, this is about how well the car is balanced (engine front, tranny rear), rear-axle biased AWD, and the incredible V6.

again, fugly != subpar performance.

I think maybe it has a backseat for the same reason the Audi TT has a "backseat"....for insurance purposes? Not 100% sure though

I secured an early 2010 gtr delivery and now I'm debating if I should cancel the m3 order or cancel the gtr order. Decisions... Decisions...
