GT-R is in da house!!

we just got a GT-R in for review at CNET. so much power, so little time. supposedly, it doesn't get too many looks in the streets - i guess it's the ultimate sleeper.

the seats are incredible. they literally hug you and won't let you slide from side to side. really nice. the back seats, that's a whole new story. as you can see from the pics, there is barely room for 2 fingers (where legs should be) when front seats are comfortably adjusted. i really don't know why there are back seats in the first place.

in any case, here are some pics i took. if there is something you guys want to ask or know about the car, let me know, we have it here until thursday.

The interior looks really cheap to me. Maybe in person it will look better.

Hard to believe it doesn't turn heads. How tall was the driver to have the seat back that far?

Sure, interior looks cheap, but that doesn't change the fact that this car will kick your a$$

I tell you guys something, and Im not trying to be a dick but I saw one of these in person this past weekend at the NASA weekend at Summit Point.

Lets just say Im so glad I didnt buy one of these. I really hate the interior.

PLus... The only people drooling over it were kids. All the old guys (seasoned racers and veterans I respect) thought my ride was the biz-ness and none of them even seemed to notice the GTR.
