Serious question - sorry for the thread hijack.
It's not a Skyline, which were family cars altered to make a GT-R.
In other words they were a bit of a compromise.

The R35 was designed from day one to do what it does.
And it does it very well.
But until it gets older and falls into the hands of more enthusiasts rather than rich boys who just lock them away in garages to say they have a GT-R it's not going to get the same kind of following.

IMO of course.

Look at the percentage of ones for sale over the last year that have never been tracked, never been launched and done low miles. Why on earth do people buy them?

Kudos?
"I've got a GT-R" to impress people?

No idea, but to the owners of older ones they are not real enthusiasts.

Thanks chaps. So a lot of it seems to be down to the car's owners as opposed to a grievance with the vehicle itself. If its any consolation, I would rather be castrated than own a BMW M, I am a genuine car enthusiast who purchased the vehicle for what it is not for any kind or trend of image and it gets used on a daily basis.

Also, is this price for real??? I think someone must've added additional zero by mistake.
I agree the R33 is awful!

Well that's one hell of a price tag isnt it!

Must say im intrigued as to what the next project will be....will it be GTR related???

Also i'm a little suprised that they didn't put it up for sale on here as well and there hasn't been some kind of low key post by KK

I just not a fan of all this "hey look at my impressive technology" Yes it is an impressive car but just not for me. I like it raw and old school. And to not sell my sole to buy a part, its bad enough already.

So they will build you a car for 200k oh well as ive said GLWTS

Actually.

The R32 was made to compete in motorsports and it was used as a base for many other R32 variations which now creates confusion among enthusiasts, fanboys and haters alike.

The R35 has sod all lost its connection to the GTR badge. Shows how little you know really so get out of your box will you.

The 35 has strengthened the GTR badge if anything. Roll on GT3 !!!

Ignorance makes you look like fools seriously.
