Nissan turns Gran Turismo GT-R into the real thing

Despite all the hype, Nissan's new legend-brought-to-life GT-R turns out to be just your every-day, every-man's supercar.

Now called simply the Nissan GT-R, this model was originally part of Nissan's Skyline line-up, sold exclusively in Japan. The original acquired its mythical status by dominating on the race track and later versions became familiar to millions through Sony's legendary Gran Turismo video driving games.

I am not buying a Nissan for 70K dollars... That is overprice for a Nissan... For that money I would get a Porsche 911...:)

Well seeing how the Porshe to compete with this is the $120K+ 911 Turbo, I would say that the GTR is quite a deal at 70K, not to mention I think the GTR looks better inside and out.

the King of the RBDETT's lives and Skylines own the street (RX-7's aren't bad either). I remember seeing this car when I first bought GT in '95. I was amazed with the car then and Polyphony can pat themselves on the back for singl-handedly bringing this car and the flood of other Japanese and European models to the forefront, there in the mid 90's. They started a racing / tuning phenomenon that is still going strong to this day. It's the main reason I gave up my 4 dr. Audi Quattro and went with a '96 Mitsu VR-4 at the time. God, I miss those cars.

Skylines FTW
