Officially, Nissan will introduce the GT-R at the Tokyo Motor Show on Oct. 24. Unofficially, the GT-R has already been spotted in Germany, California and Arizona. Recent spy reports from the Nurburgring clock the GT-R at around 7:38, roughly two seconds faster than the current Porsche 911 Turbo. FuelRunGod2007-09-29 20:39:35

Man it looks wild even with the camouflage. As per the link, the damn thing is faster than the 911 turbo around the Nurburgring by 2 seconds. (7:38)

 

EDIT: oh just saw gurkha has mentioned the Nurburgring part already.

I can't wait. I hear they've ditched the V10 for a twin-turbo V6, but have still managed to push 500+ bhp from the thing. A ditch I'm more happy about is that of the name 'Skyline', it's become a bit... queer. And that it's targeting things bigger than the 911 Turbo. It's quite cool and very Japanese the way they're building hype for the car using videogames. Sony's Gran Turismo 5 will feature a covered up version in the demo (prologue), like the pic above and EA's NFS:Prostreet demo features the 'concept' version. The full versions of both games will release co-incidentally with the GT-R launch and so will feature the actual car... ingenious way of leaving us hanging...
