I smell troll.
Interesting I have completely the opposite impression. I have never driven a R35 but was taken out in one at Bruntingthorpe a few years ago and found the experience completely underwhelming. It was fast but I thought it felt slow even through it was 20mph faster my r33, the V6 also sounded rubbish.I also would say you have to work hard at an RB26 to keep up with the 35, which is in comparison completely effortless, which is why it feels so much faster.
The same Topic I posted up earlier in this very Thread :-Which post were these figures found from?
I am amazed there is less than half a second in it?
Says the regularly triggered name calling snowflake....:bowdown1:I smell troll.
Thanks very much for those kind words Simonh!K66 is a originals enthusiast, let’s not beat him up too much for that.
Thanks for posting that David, I couldn't agree with you more!Interesting I have completely the opposite impression. I have never driven a R35 but was taken out in one at Bruntingthorpe a few years ago and found the experience completely underwhelming.

The complete opposite to my first r32 experience which prompted me buying my r33
WOW! That takes me back to my Apprentice days when we had to use the Company's 214LSi's and 216GSi's as pool Cars, Scary Motors indeed!:chuckle:Once upon a time I borrowed by brothers Rover 214i. That thing scared the jeebies out of me at 30mph.........
Is the M4 GTS really better than an R35? I've driven an F80 M3 standard (2015, pre-LCI) with DCT for quite some time and I was not very impressed. The exhaust is overwhelmingly loud, the car actually sounds pretty good at maybe 7/10ths throttle but at WOT it just goes full lawnmower.I recently had a chance driving the M4 GTS which was incredible from a driving point of view over an R35 which feels heavy and numb even though it’s fast.
Trying once again to show off your eloquent grasp of English vocabulary Cupcake?!:chuckle:Clearly your some kind of blind illiterate tool.
If I was such a big fan boy of R35’s why did go back and own an R32?
Now f*** off and take your poncy memes with you.
How very true, Anything that gets people regularly posting up on the Forum once more has got to be a good thing IMHO!A Good thread. Its good to see that people have got their own opinions.
Yup! I once shocked a Nissan Salesman by saying virtually the exact same speech as this Jimbostir when I tried a MY14 GT-R. He then called over a few of His Colleagues and then we all had a lengthy discussion of both the good and some bad points too.The only thing is; for all the performance, there is something missing. Some kind of feeling that more is actually less somewhere but you cant put your finger on it until you get back into a skyline.
Once back in the skyline you realise, its actually more fun. It’s more involved;
For me Nissan made 2 mistakes with the 35.Eventually I was asked if I'd eventually trade up from my Skyline to one and my answer was No. To this day I don't think they understood that the new generation of GT-R's are missing the originals character and especially its soul!
Personally yes I have.Have you considered renting an R35 for a week? I think that would be long enough to get a better idea for whether you really would like living with one.
