They're hosted by Yahoo, so you need a Yahoo account to view em. I had to babelfish for a couple hours to find all of these beauties. Let me know if you don't have a Yahoo membership and I'll host em somewhere else for ya :D

Anyone have any more info about it?

I know it is called the Tommy Kaira ZZII and the AutoBacs RS-01
I think RS-01 was the prototype name, but I'm not sure.
It might have an N1 in it, but I haven't seen any real confirmation of that yet, it also might be a 2.7l. I think a RB-X Replica from an N1 block would be a wicked combo ;)
I believe it uses ATTESSA, and I'm not sure upon the tranny it uses.

I saw that prototype exhibited at theToyota Megaweb at the beginning of the year. No idea what is going on with the actual development...no news or scoops so far. I really don't know if it will actually happen...or if it does, when?!:(

It does sound like it could be a prety awesome sports car 1000 kg and RB27 power can only be a recepie for a great car....maybe another back up car if Nissan screws up the next GTR!:D :p

That is my all time dream car by far, a mid engine, AWD, N1 RB26DETT powered, 550ps, weight 1000KG and look like a Mclaren F1............:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

And that is cheaper then what I pay for my GTR here in the USA...........damn..............:( So I can be driving that and still save money :(

Japanese people are SO lucky :p

Jeff,

....except you can't drive it.

It has no production date at all yet sadly, as I for one would be in the queue if it was available.

Bean...........it is such a tease..............

I heard some rumor (mainly from Dino I think) that the RB26 won't make it since Nissan killed it and of course the emission problem.

It is really a DREAM car for me................let me keep on dreaming then, or I just go sit in my GTR with the engine running and rev up the engine and imagine I am in a ZZ2. I am pathetic isn't it :rolleyes:

Jeff,

It's not pathetic at all, without dreams we wouldn't be anywhere.

However, If I was sat in your Nur revving the engine, I don't think I'd be thinking about the ZZ2 any more.....:D :smokin:

Bean, dan0h,

Thank you for supporting my never ending desire for Japanese cars :p

When I was driving home from work yesterday in my Nur, somehow I was extremely happy and excited, don't get me wrong, I have been very happy and excited everytime I drive the Nur, but yesterday I was having EXTRA emotion. I just feel SO lucky to be able to own this dream car of mine in the U.S. :D

The Nur is my all time dream car, the ZZ2 is the dream car that can't be obtain. It is basically a Japanese Mclaren F1..........I only wish I get to sit in one in my life, don't seem too possible though :(
