I know that is a concept shot, but the LF-A is going to need more than smaller/more lightweight wheels and that wild paintjob to contend with that Gran Turismo gamer GTR.

and for the record, I'm with this ranking:

The reason Lexus is at the bottom is because of their current direction. However, they did suprise me with the LF-A concept and the LF-A is supposed to be V10 powered, so I still have hope for it.

Maybe wiping the floor is a slight mistruth because if like I said the NSX has awd and similar power with a believed lighter overall weight than I reckon based on their F1 experience they will produce a car which is quicker in every situation.

Call it experience of what the old NSX was capable of with a lot less power comapred to much more potent rivals.

Spec V baby!

No chance of the other two beating Vspec.....And anyway, the 2nd special model of GTR( 1st= Vspec, 2nd=Evo) will just runaway from the crowd of jap supercars.


Just for people who don't know....the old GTR R34 nismo was the first stock car to break 8min in Nurnburg ring....Anyway, I dont want to discuss it because its a very controversial topic(Apparently it wasn't stock because it was producing more then 400hp which turbocharged vehicles tend to do....Turbo engines are unpredictable in a good way).

Do I dare say the GTR EVO will break the 7min barrier...time will only tell.

Aren't they (Nissan) working on releasing a GT-R Specification Victory?

GAME OVER.

coz the supra is a legend you dont mess, especially by fitting it with all the crap the LF-A has. kinda like the R34, the only way they could make a new one is to make the monster they did

EDIT: post number 420 for me!!
