NICO Nissan Skyline GT-R
 



  With much fanfare, the latest GT-R prototype was released at the 39th Tokyo Motor Show. Based upon a Skyline-style coupe, the GT-R will be released to the North American market in 2007. While the full details have not been released, we can be sure the line will follow in the footsteps of previous GT-R models. It will be a pure-bred Japanese performance car.

Technical specifications are still speculation at this point, but some strong assumptions can be made. The car will utilize the ATESSA-ETS all-wheel-drive system along with all the computer-controlled goodies we are used to in the current generation R34 GT-R. That is pretty much a given. The main question seems to revolve around the motor itself.

From what we have heard, the GT-R will be powered by a VQ-Based 3.7 Liter motor, will utilize twin Garrett turbochargers, a front-mount intercooler, and a 7sp sequential grearbox. Estimated HP is expected in the 450 range.

Price for this beast is estimated in the $70k range.
