    I have kids??

    Shit...

    Oh well, sod them. If it means I get to enjoy myself doing what I love- driving fast, playing with a band on stage, reading the newspaper and using the Internet. Who said I'm going to have kids anyway?

    On a second thought, you better not.

    The last thing the world needs a smaller version of me. I don't think I'd want to have a kid who couldn't enjoy the thrill of pushing a straight-six to the limit, or play a Fender Strat through a Marshall stack trying to sound like Jimi. What's the point?

    Sounds like poetic BS.

    Trying to sound like Jimmy can be very bad. Either you sound like it or you better not try.

    Bloody right I do. I'm the most offensive person I know.

    It's not poetic BS, it's the stuff that makes me and a lot of friends tick. Are you telling me that you don't enjoy thrashing your car every now and then? Pfft!

    I sound better than Jimi. End.

    Just to sustain the hype a little longer..

    http://www.topspeed.com/cars/nissan/...-r-ar8651.html

    Includes a Vid of the undisguised car and speculationj about it's spec.
    I am interested to learn the eventual spec because, years ago when they were announcing a new GTR one of the things I remember is that they stated they were waiting so long to produce the new vehicle because they felt a GTR should have radical high tech separating it from the rest and they had to wait for it to be available.

    Repost can bite my arse, I'm not going through a bunch of old skyline threads "shudder".

    I think it's gonna eat some Porsches for breakfast... but not all of them.
    The R35 GTR sure is a great piece of work.

    It looks sweet. This is one of the first Asian performance cars that really, really, looks awesome. I like the cuts down the side of the hood. Reinds me of another gorgeous car, the Volvo S40.

    The official output of some cars is vastly underrated- some special edition Skylines made well in excess of 350bhp. Just that they were meant to quote 276bhp... keep the eco-weenies happy.
    Yeah right, many of the bombed out GTR's running on the streets today would have less than the factory figure. This under rating of GTR power output by 100 or so hp is the same as the myth that stock skylines made a sub 8 minute lap around the ring.
