Probably already seen this but here it is anyhow...

IGN: Nissan Opens New Design Studio

Nissan GT-R | Auto Express News | News | Auto Express

Following on from our story in Issue 932, which showed a mildly disguised GT-R testing at the Nürburgring in Germany, this week's mag can now reveal how the newcomer will look. It retains the distinctive headlights of the original Skyline GT-R concept, which made its world debut at the Tokyo Motor Show last year. With narrow, pod-style lenses and black frames incorp*orating deep air intakes - which extend to nearly meet the front splitter - the lamps provide the GT-R with a menac*ing look.

Matching the exciting visuals is the Nissan's power source - a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine. Deliver*ing 480bhp, it drives all four wheels through a twin-clutch seven-speed sequential transmission similar to the VW Group's DSG set-up.

Performance should be easily on a par with prestige supercars such as Porsche's 911 Turbo, with 0-60mph in four seconds and a top speed of nearly 200mph. There are no official plans to bring the GT-R to the UK yet, but if it does make it here, expect a £50,000 price tag and a 2008 on-sale date.
