Mmmmm............ there are so many damn concept pictures of that car, I'm not going to say anything.

I'll wait until I see one :) And then I'll probably just frown and think about R32s.............

Like the article says - the GT-R will be shown at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show in October this year. 8(?) months before release.

There are 2 powerplants on offer, the NA V8 (displacement ~5L) & the TT VQ35.

One of the reasons that the US is getting the atmo V8 is due to the Ca smog laws (specifically relating to the light-up time of a cat convertor in a turbo car).

If you recall, Subaru addressed this problem by putting pre-cats into the WRX, but it still only just passes....

(the pre-cats also have a tendancy to melt, which can very quickly destroy the turbine).

There is another quote in the article relating to the selection of the V8 for the US market, but I don't want to miss-quote it so it'll have to wait until I get home tonight. :classic:
