Nissan have a lot of facilities in Yokohama, main one being the Oppama plant which aslo has a small test track. Could have been around there....

I saw some pics the other day on boasting 21 inch wheels wtf? I bet 21s will be an option.

I expect the brakes look small because they're under 20" wheels....

As much as I say I hate this car with a passion I bet I end up wanting one...I DON'T like the car in silver but I bet my bottom dollar "Vibrant Red" will do the trick of winning me over or black. It isn't a GT-R until it is black! All hail the new crowned King??? We will see in a few weeks

The wraps could just be on those to protect the paintwork, a lot of new cars are delivered with similar covers. That's just speculation though

Looks more sporty from those various angles than I thought it was, almost Porsche-like......

The guerilla marketing strategy by Nissan this time is quite a funny one. "Carry 2 masked GT-Rs on a truck, and carry them through the streets of Tokyo." These photos were taken about a week and a half ago on the streets of Harajuku, and Aoyama. But according to the photographer, the hip people in Aoyama, nor the fashion geeks in Harajuku paid any attention to the masked car that was carried on a truck......no wonder...

Very odd for sure, seems to me like Nissan is exposure huntin in the weeks before the official release. Either that or the truck driver "accidently" left the tarps up while he went and picked up a tonkatsu set...

Notice the guy in the truck is dressed as described on the site. They also masked the truck itself, which is a bit over the top.

Mine aren't leaked shots. I was just visiting my girlfriend in Yokohama and walked by this truck with GTR on it. Those shots were taken with a Nokia phone, it operated really slow, if I had any decent camera with me at the time, I would have taken many more detailed photos.

Why would they run a truck through Busan Korea? Nissan won't enter the Korean market for at least 2-3 years, although Infiniti has been around for awhile.

But that is titillating. I think I'd crash my car if I saw that go past me in Seoul. ****ing marketing. I don't even want, nor can afford the bloody thing, it'll never be as sensuously beautiful as a BNR32, and yet now I'm all caught up in the hype.
