New info and PICCCCCCCCCSS on the Skyline Concept





So far, Nissan has not released any technical specifications of the production model, but speculation among the media suggests the new GT-R will carry over the ATTESA-ETS all-wheel-drive system of previous Skyline GT-Rs, as well as HICAS all-wheel-steering. Both of these systems have already been introduced to "lesser" Skyline / Infiniti G35 variants, and seem very likely to make it to the top-version, as well. Rumors suggest the 2007 GT-R will eitherClick for a larger 2005 Nissan GT-R Promo Concept picture be powered by a turbo-version of Nissan's ubiquitous VQ35 engine-series, or a variant of the Infiniti Q45's VK45 engine. Since the GT-R is supposed to mix with the best sports-cars globally, power-levels are expected to reach in excess of 450 hp.

The exterior of the new concept builds up on elements of previous GT-Rs, with the trademark round lights in the back and a wide single center air intake in front. In comparison to the previous GT-R Concept, the headlights now flow into a lower, canted hood. More pronounced and boldly shaped front fenders feature an air vent on their back to help cooling. Overall, the stance looks more aggressive and fluid now, than it did on the previous GT-R Concept.

Notable from the side are the wide C-Pillar and the integration of the A-Pillar into the windscreen and side windows, which in conjunction with the low roofline arouse the image of an aircraft canopy. The rear is dominated by theClick for a larger 2005 Nissan GT-R Promo Concept picture GT-R's trademark round taillights, an underbody diffuser, and four prominent exhaust pipes - and reminds this writer of a Ferrari 456's backend (except for the wing).

What changes will be made to the production version has to be seen, but the GT-R Promo Concept is already a major step forward from the previous GT-R Concept. Let's just hope the car also hold dynamically what it promises aesthetically.

Re: New info and PICCCCCCCCCSS on the Skyline Concept

:bs: + wishful thinking + photochop = that article

gt-r is scheduled to be an 08.5 or 09 model. not 07... 07 will be the facelifted maxima and redesigned altima and sentra, plus the altima hybrid, and 2 door verts and coupes (SE-R) in 07.5 or 08

those images look like someone chopped together a 350z front and a g35 rear

The front looks like a 350z, and the rear looks like a chevy cobalt ss.

If I saw it coming down the road, I'd point and laugh. I don't care how fast it is.

You can't blame Ford for that though. There are two groups to blame for that... #1) The dealerships and #2) The idiots who actually pay it. If no one would pay over MSRP, they wouldn't sell any cars and would eventually have to sell it for sticker.

Honestly, 500 hp for $40k is not a bad deal at all in today's inflated-*** world. It's the fastest production Mustang ever... and just think, some people paid that much for a Mystic 04 not too long ago. I'd say the .8 liters of displacement, 110 extra (rated) hp, 14" brakes, and just the new platform in general is worth the price. It's unfortunate... but the days when you could get a new Mustang GT for less than $20,000 are long gone...

As for the Skyline... I kinda like it. If it comes with 450 hp and AWD, it'll be a fast little ****er too.

Re: New info and PICCCCCCCCCSS on the Skyline Concept

it will be around 45k in hardtop form~ and the mark up of 20k makes me want to consider a new z06 over the gt00 (If i could afford either)
