Ello people ..... just found some pics of the new GT-R and info, thought you mght like to see. I think it looks pretty sweet, looks alot more modern but still has some the the aggressive characteristics of the old version.
I was gonna round this info down to the most interestin but its all a decent read. So here's the majority of the article.
According to sources, exterior design on the all-wheel track terror is close to final. The official launch dated has been reportedly set for 2007 with the vehicle bowing in as a late 2007 or early 2008. It'll more likely be the latter. Let's rewind four years and two show's ago, Nissan revealed the GT-R Concept. A promise from the man himself, Carlos Ghosn, that the GT-R wouldn't be left behind with the new Nissan. What we saw back then was a glimpse of the car you see here, the GT-R Proto (short for prototype).
At the 35th Tokyo Motor Show in 2001, Nissan unveiled the GT-R Concept, confirming that the GT-R legend would be continued into the 21st century. Then, at the 37th Tokyo Motor Show in 2003, Nissan announced the next-generation GT-R would be rolled out in 2007. Now with the launch of the production model just two years away, the development of the new GT-R has moved ahead again with the reveal of the GT-R Proto.
As we're not even supposed to have these official photos, most of our information is limited to educated speculation. The Internet rumors tell us that the car will use some form of Nissan V6 in the VQ family. Yes, it'll be based off the same award-winning VQ35DE powerplant that is used in practically every Nissan in production. It won't be the 3.5L naturally aspirated mill that we've seen in the 350Z and G35. Some industry know-it-alls suggest that it will use a larger displacement 3.7-4.0L version of the same engine mated to a twin-turbo setup. Tuning and engineering has been done by the racing experts at Cosworth. We've heard that the car will have at least 400 hp and up to 500, but we think 450 sounds more realistic. No torque figures have been announced. If the horsepower-to-torque ratio similar to that of the existing VQ, don't expect those numbers to be far behind the ponies.
Other performance features are, supposedly, a positive-boost turbo system. This means that the GT-R will never fall into negative boost and, like a supercharger, will always have boost available. This should make power delivery very linear, but, once again, we have yet to hear official word from the PR machine at Nissan. The last bit of vital info to the GT-R legend is the use of a seven-speed CVT transmission with an all-wheel drive system. This seems an obvious choice, except for the seven-speed tranny.
