...the top perfroming EVO spec will begin at $94,000 and feature a 530-horsepower version of the VQHRTT engine while shedding 220 lbs.
So how heavy must it be without the weight loss?

BS !
At least for JDM anyway.
I just went to pre-order my car - the 3 spec differences are really just trim differences.
There is Base, Black Edition and Premium Edition and the differences are minimal.

The colour choice is a bit poor too

Most surprising thing for me was that the chassis code is.....
R35 !

Which trim level did you order, and what are the price differences between these trim levels?

Premium.
Sorry I can't tell you the price differences as I only really cared about the one I was getting.
The difference is not much though - about 400k yen IIRC

Interesting Trim differences.

Where the prices of the trim differences similar to the "3 flavors" they talk about?

Hey Bean, Correct me if I'm wrong. Ordering from Tomei. Base edition 7.7m yen, Black @ 7.92m yen, and Premium 8.3m yen. Black has forged wheels, Premium has alarm and bose system plus wheels etc... Only 1000 will be sold in the 1st batch. Independent dealer launch on the 26th Sep....T motor show on the 24th Oct and World wide launch 6thDec...... Colour wise the only one that stikes me as different is Metel Silver @ an extra 315,500 Yen.... My order placed as well, hopeful delivery Jan 08.

Don't tell me that. Look what happened with our last conversation.
Would like to see how it measures up. Now I will loose sleep wondering
again about getting a new car, or at least the possibility. I call first
dibs on a passenger ride and first dibs to driving it. You can follow me
so I will not run off with your car, I am sure you should be able to keep
up. I could imagine the necks that will get whiplash when you
show up @ Daikoku.

As far as I know you are spot on.
they are making 1000 GTRs per month and the special silver is limited to 200 cars per month.
Your dates are right too - 1st deliveries December 5th though I thought.
I wasn't at all impressed by the colour choice - however, these things need to be seen in the flesh really.

Hi Shin,
Do you know what the colour of the test cars were ?
Specifically, have we seen Ultimate Metal Silver anywhere yet ?

Dave, how long before you take into TS for a little more power?
Are you going to turn it into a deadly weapon like your R34? I can
not wait to see what kind of mods are in store for this car. Do you
think the new GT-R will dominate TAS 08?
