I was just gonna post up about this. Got a single sheet mailer today from Nissan titled "The Nissan GT-R is coming and nothing can stop it". It gives details of the website Nissan GT-R Official Global Site and says prospects can sign up for advance information about the GT-R. There is also a teaser at the bottom with a picture of the Nurburgring and a lap timer with question marks where the time should be. Should be an exciting few weeks!!!

Even has downloadable countdown clocks to Tokyo, LA, and Geneva

I did find a mistake though under 1999 for the R34.

For the 1999 GT-R, they say it debuts and takes a fourth win at Pikes Peak. In 1999 Motorex, UPRD, and Rhys Millen ran an R33 GT-R at Pikes Peak in HPSS and set a record.

As far as I know, an R34 never ran at Pikes Peak. There were Bests R33 - 400R that ran in a class up, and the R33 in 1999, but not an R34.

A little bird told me that Nissan are making just 1,000 of these cars for the whole world.

Some people are not ordering because you cannot pull out once you've committed.

They want to call it the "Nissan GTR"??? Er... Since fans of past GTRs know them as the 32, the 33 the 34, etc., a new popular name will have to be found to describe the Proto. In fact the name "Proto" may well end up sticking, whatever Nissan has decided, IMHO.

PS I bought 10,000 JPY worth of Takarakuji lottery tickets before the summer. (42 quid?)

Today I went back to the little window and... I won 3,500 yen! (14 quid?)

Nissan GT-R35 is the proper ID as far as I have been reading. Sounds sex to me.
