I belive the new GTR will be for world wide sale or there abouts and for sale in the States ,so I cant see it being like the previous models in the engine and tuning department.

I used to have a v8 SD1 rover. Ive ALWAYS loved the v8 drone, and to hear a highly tuned japv8 will be the day of pure joy. If its true, i cant wait

LOL exactly. Not to offend...but why is this thread even posted? Nissan already confirmed it will be a V6...to me nothing feels like the Inline 6 but whatever floats there new boat.

Nissan should just do a deal with GM and slot the LS6 in there and be done with it.

Solves emissions and practically everything else in one fell swoop. Supercharge it too if you REALLY need 600+ hp.

Personally, I don't mind how many electronic thingumiebobos it has provided that there's a way of turning all of the ESP, EBD, ETC off...

I'd love V8 torque but to put LSx in a GTR would he a crime

Anyway, V8 V6 V4 or V2 quad turbo . . . . the car will have at least 400HP and having that power, the most important is to bring it effective to the ground. In that issue the japanese manufactures are allways ahead of the rest . .so I not worry.

i'd love a V8 turbo like the Ferrari 288 GTO. but as stated above, whatever they bring, will be awesome. i'm proud of Nissan's GTR no matter what.

i do feel the UDSM and JDM GTRs will differ.

aaagh I say the same. Do you think the new GT-R will be "watered down" by the time it gets to USA? Or do you think it will be like the 93-98 toyota supra turbo 320hp and the JDM 280hp....By the way what is japan going to do about the 280hp regulation? Do you think they will stick class the car as 280hp when it was clear that it has over 400hp???

yes, absolutely the USDM GTR will not be the JDM one. it cannot be if it wanted to be. the EPA and DOT regulations differ over here. the USDM car will be restricted. i will nearly bet money on that.

and the 280hp rule is way long gone.

are you serious? then why the heck is subaru still saying the STi still has 280ps???? I really fear this new GT-R now lol. It ISN'T like the old ones in most ways..brand new engine, brand new design from the ground up etc. Me personally Id get it if it was a twin turbo V8 but thats not going to happen. Anyone going to pick one up as soon as it hits show room floors? I even thought about saving up and getting one when it hits japan and having it shipped over :-)

Yeah...I want to know more about the new G35 coupe when it comes out this summer..I personally think it looks 3 times better than the new GT-R. But who knows. maybe some R32~R34 GT-R owners will swap out there old RBs for the new VQ.

they're different cars. the G35 is a "pretty" car.
GTR is a brutal sexual car; a bruiser.

Yeah true. But of course to date the R34 is the BEST GT-R. PERIOD..I don't care about stock vs. stock I want to see a heavily modified R34 vs this new GT-R (with 6 speed not paddle shift)

I think the 32,33 and 34 GTR's were the one's that made it. The new GTR not so much. I personally think its lost the essence (engine and styling) that those models i mentioned have. Its kinda like making christian convert to Islam. Just wont work with the roots at which some of us are brought up with.

I only outage my R32 by 3 years, But i love the car. And im sure many kids of the newer generation will learn to love and respect it too. Godzilla will never die.
