    Spied: Nissan Skyline GT-R

    Spy photographers caught what appears to be a production prototype of the 2008 Nissan GT-R. The car was seen in testing at the Nürburgring this week in Germany.

    The car is based on the highly popular Nissan GT-R concept, first unveiled in late 2005. Earlier this year, the Japanese automaker announced the GT-R would be badged as a Nissan, much to the disappointment of Infiniti dealers. Since unveiling the concept, Nissan has tried to limit the car's exposure to prevent tiring the public.

    Pricing is expected somewhere around $70,000. When Nissan first previewed the concept, it said the show car was 80 to 90 percent representative of the final shape. Rumors have indicated the car will feature a 3.2 liter twin turbo V6 engine with 480 horsepower. It is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in Fall 2007, followed by the U.S. and Canada in Spring 2008.

    well... so much for total secrecy.....
    It's going to be badass when it comes out. Great. Then the next generation of ricers will embrace this and 6Speed will come back as MR.Skyline and get banned again like he did in the Skyline thread.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    An this is in European cars because...

    I like it! It has a 350Z aura (the c pillar?) about it, that I hope they get rid off before production.

    It does appear to be similar to the 350Z in overall appearance and size. One would ask where is Toyota now that Nissan is building two rear wheel drive (possibly AWD) legitimate sports coupes?

    I love the fact that it's changed so little since it was unveiled as a concept. Can't wait until it comes out.

    Toyota and Honda are cooking up their versions of a sports car. Be patient and give them a couple more years.

    The 350Z links are no surprise, Nissan would be building this on the same platform as the 350Z/Skyline

    Probably the VQ. Everyone is talking about a 3-3.5L engine which falls inline with the VQ.
