    The much anticipated soon to be released in Canada Nissan GT-R is coming. The reason why this car is so special in my heart is because it is based on my favorite sports car of all time, Nissan Skyline. The redesign however, seems to be not as attractive as the good old skyline. The engine is a 480Hp, 0-60mhp in 3.3 seconds destroying the direct competition such as Porsche 911 and Viper. The best part is that not only does it have a manual shift pad behind the wheel for auto enthusiasts, it also has an auto shift for non-enthusiasts who just want to show off.

    Here is a picture of the manual shift:

    I am way too excited for the release of this car. [​IMG] Even though I can't afford it... [​IMG]

    The best part is that it costs less than Corvette or Viper. [​IMG]

    I don't personally like skylines much, too overhyped etc. I'm more fan of older cars or something. almost proud owner of ford sierra xr4i. (yea there's also older skylines, but whatever)
    Also who the hell wants to use auto shifts, especially in a car like that? : p

    That is a seriously badass automobile.

    It has room for an infant car seat in the back right? Right? Don't have kids people.

    Except it has 480 horses and it is much more agile even though it is bigger. [​IMG]

    Manu-matics can suck it. Gimme a good ol' R32 any day.

    It is cheaper than a Viper but more expensive than a Corvette. The new 'Vettes are breaking all those exotics' (Porche, Ferrarri, Lambo, etc.) stats easy too.

    Yeah I'm a huge car fan and it astonishing how it can outperform and set better race times then its direct competition like the 911, M3, R8 and the vantage. And ofcourse for a lower pricetag then these cars [​IMG]

    and people that talk about Corvettes and Vipers,, some roads have turns.

    Red is an ugly color for car. Black makes the car look really expensive and luxurious, but this is a sports car... I hate all the sports car colors though... blue, red. If only they made it all in lime:
