2009 Nissan GT-R: Grit yer teeth and say GT-RRRRRRRR

Yes, it lives up to all the hype! The coming Nissan GT-R is a world-class supercar: Top speed of 193 mph, 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, a 473 hp, 433 lb ft twin-turbo V6 mounted in the front and driving all four wheels through a rear-mounted transaxle.

It me be fast, I'll give it that. But it's still ass-ugly.
And the tail lights look like they were swiped from a new Malibu. Or a Cobalt coupe.

I think it looks badass. The taillight styling cue has been on the car longer than a malibu or cobalt. This is going to be one those cars that will rock the boat, like the z06 did.

I don't take S10 drivers seriously when it comes to appearance. Especially not those who get all fundie when it comes to imports.

I'm actually not a huge fan of the profile, and the ass could be a bit better, but that front looks mean. 473 hp and 433 lb-ft of torque mean, to be exact. Also, I'm sure it will look better in person. Pictures do no car justice - the Z06 looks pretty weird in many that I've seen, while it's pure sex in person.

I'm sure it's a beast around the track, but I'm really curious how it does as a daily driver. If it's even close to the competing Porsches, the Germans might have met a true match even for those buyers in that range who demand a foreign nameplate, and thus don't consider Corvettes.

I'm not feeling any love for it. FUGLY

With a price in the $70K range there should hopefully not be a bunch of cobbled up, juvenile riced out versions buzzing the highways of America.

Of course there will be some [email protected] doing just that.

It's nice. Not something I would drool over. I'd still take a Z06 in that price range though, and still beat it. I'd bet a z51 would be quite close performance wise.

I think it looks great. A little out of my price range though. Who would have thought the first Skyline they brought over here would be $70K.

talk about a 350 Z and g35 looking. no doubt this car will get some high "most fun to drive" ratings. 473 HP AWD. they will need one of those warnings on the car "Caution: Sudden Hard launches may cause injury to the neck. Those who are use to civics, back injury, afraid of Rambo and severe heart conditions should not drive"

I think it'll be a cool car, but I'm not crazy about the design.
It's kinda designed like it should appeal to younger drivers, yet at that price point the younger drivers surely can't afford it.

Well, it's one of the better-priced cars for the performance it offers. And I think it's mostly geared towards Japanese audience anyway - you know they love their Skylines over there.

That said, I'd still pick a 'Vette over it.
