I'm in love:oops:
Extremly nice looks, any specifications on this?
It looks nice...not sure if it has been, but the front end looks
different--but it might just be the angle lol.
Couldn't find much info other that a price tage of about $65,000 and around 450hp.
Wow I just went to post a thread on this when I saw this :D
That's the article on edmunds.com anyways :D Love that site
Looking nice.....I guess it's what was expected of it though...
good strong competetion for the camaro and challenger:smoke:
does anybody remember the days when concept cars were suprising? lol
ffs.......... and im still waiting for the new damn supra :banghead:
Is there gonna be one?
nope, but lots of people dont know that yet :laughing:
There's gotta be!!! lol.
BIG pipes!, BIG engine????
looks nice though! i reckon it could compete against more than the usual cars!
If by good strong competition, you mean more then $10K MORE than the
domestic 'retros'.. :wink2:
Well anything over 2.0L is a big engine to you Brits.. :laughing:
ha ha!!!! YOU'RE Wrong about that:laughing: they're getting bigger
gradually, 2.5/3 litre is normal now
i dont like the new skyline as much as the older one..... also i feel sorry for the brits:ohcrap:
A lot of civics have big pipes and 1.6 liters :laughing: . It should very easily live up to the skyline name, but I think the styling is a bit rough around the edges
Kinda looks like a 350z
rear end has more of a g35 coupe taillight thing going on
Theres been rumors of one for 2009 in the $90k range, but never any confirmation. Toyota needs a sporty car.
Wonder why :roll: :laughing:
Looks like a modern muscle car.
why is that then??? (i mean about the feel sorry bit) i can go with you, the older one looked better, and the one before that too!
nothing personal but your cars being no bigger than 2.0 and smaller but now your getting up to the 3.0!!! lol and yea the R34 is so much better well to me it is
R32 > all
most are small but we do get the big ones too! range rovers with the 4.6
etc, a classic, the Jensen Interceptor had a 8 litre Chrysler V8 (that was
in the 70's)
Jags, Bentleys, Vauxhall etc etc, but we're not like america with a majority having the big engines:laughing:
back to the point, i dont think Nissan have carried the shape along to the new one!!!
I agree, we have our fair share of big engined cars, only trouble here is though, unless you can afford to run them, you might aswell go for a standard 2.0-litre car, as Fuel and Road tax (don't start, Teggs, lol) etc is so pricey here!
Apparently it isn't going to be a convential manual transmission...
And it's gonna have a v6, supposedly.
Edmunds.com was spying the car and they said they could tell it was a v6 from the sounds and also that it wasn't "normal" the way it shifted gears.
I heard a Flappy paddles rumor.
Sport Compact Car said it was a de-bored and de-stroked engine from the Odyssey--with some mods lol.
Now that's just STUPID!!! :screwy: Think about what you just said. A Honda V6 in a Nissan??:banghead: No, it's gonna be a twin turbo VQ engine, the same v6 from the 350Z and the G35.
My bad...got confused, I meant the Nissan Quest lol.
Which has the same 3.5L V6 as the 350Z and the G35 (just less hp).
Oh...never knew that lol.
id say it makes sense putting the v6 in the car but i dont like the idea of having one in a skyline! its going to be heavier on the front than the back (unless they get the weight distribution right) but i have read ( i cant remember where ) that it'll have close to 400bhp
The Nissan Skyline is called Infiniti G35 in the US.
And the tail-lights are still the same as the current version (they may change it when the car comes out, off course).
true, but its not the GT-R...
Will it be sold in the US?
If so, how are they gonna call them, since the Skyline is the Infiniti G35, I guess it'd be a little hard to put a wing on its back, larger wheels and exhausts and call it Nissan Skyline GT-R. They'd both be on the streets looking the same, but with different names.
Or worse: Not be in the US as its previous version.
It's finally coming to the U.S. lol. The G35 is the Nissan Skyline V35 (I think)...The GT-R is pretty different lol.
As I said, it's the same car with larger wheels/tires, exhausts, a big wing on the back, respirators on the hood and fenders.
I'm guessing you find the SRT-4 a completely different car than a standard Neon...
It is. It just shares some body panels. Woo. The whole drivetrain was beefed up on the SRT-4, then engine is different, and has that snail shaped thingamajigger, so yeah for all intents and purposes its a completley different car. As if anyone buying an SRT-4 really gives two shits if it even HAS a body, they'd probably be happy with a tent superglued to the frame.
They are still 2 dodge neons stopped at the traffic light.
Says who? Dodge doesn't.
Is the Pontiac Solstice just a Corvette because it has a scaled-down version of the Corvette's frame? How different from another car does one have to be to not be the same to you?
OK. You win. I'm not discussing this anymore.
I wanna see Nissan selling the all-new Nissan Skyline (even if called GTR) in the US, looking like this.
Then we'll talk.
It's going to be a nissan worldwide according to some nissan dude.
