New Nissan Supercar Stalls

Plans to revive the most famous name in the Japanese car industry are in disarray. The launch of Nissan's Skyline GT-R successor - to be badged simply GT-R - is months behind schedule, and the model won't make its debut at this year's Tokyo Motor Show as originally planned.

Speculation has dogged the vehicle's styling, engine and transmission, but our source says the whole project has yet to be signed off. Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn will only confirm the car is "in the pipeline".

If it comes, the next GT-R will get an all-new body inspired by the aggressive concept seen at Tokyo in 2001. The car is said to feature a huge airdam and more functional headlights, and the prototypes were tested using two different engines. Whichever is used, with 400bhp the GT-R will easily break the company's self-imposed 280bhp power limit.
