I saw one back in jan. at an auto show. Looks nice, but meh.

And there are now two allegations that Nissan cheated during the run at nuremburg. Porsche did a test comparing the two and found the nissan to be 25 seconds slower then their alleged time. But, the Viper ACR dominated all! haha
Until a 3rd party group like Top Gear or Car & Driver/Motortrend/etc. come out with their own numbers on the U.S.-spec model, both Nissan and Porsche could be calling BS.

Yes folks .... that would be the USS Intrepid!!! Back in NYC!!
I was looking at these pics on my phone and wondering why the hell you posted up pics of buildings and what it could possibly have to do with a GT-R... Congratulations on having your boat back?

This is a "Saw my ....." thread. I came out of watching a movie during lunch and saw the biggest boat I've ever seen moving up the hudson ..... not the biggest boat though. Just seemed to fit at the time.

I've seen the new gt-r in Seattle. Just one, and I'll tell you what. Couple years ago, Nissan bought25 used R34s and gave them to nismo. Said something along the lines of "make us proud" Nismo released the Nismo R34 Gtr-ztune. Runs a 10+ in the 1/4 mile. Technically a production car because of the 25 produced but crazy rare. Priced originally at 170k good luck finding one for anywhere NEAR that amount however! Here's a link, I drool a little bit when I look at it, I can admit that.

Driveshaft, the surrounds around the drive shaft, the fenders, dry carbon bracing around the strut mounts...I love the brake set up!

14" fronts with 6 pistons!!! 13"+ rears with 4! that's crazy stopping power. Hmmmm, I wonder if the earthspins a littlefaster when that thing goes from top speed to zero?
