Seems you can use the launch control now without voiding the warranty!

I don't understand the Japanese style at all. They just can't seem to build sexy cars. Maybe a few like the 240-280 Z and the last RX7 are sweet, but in general.. It seems they take a rolling box and just start cutting out vents and sticking on spoilers and wings..

I'd rock it. The 370z is a decent looking car as well, just woefully underpowered and doesnt respond to boost so well.

Interesting. It's price and sales numbers are about what the Viper's were.

I have heard that these things kick ass on the track. You can throw them into the corner.

The 370z is about the only current Japanese Sports car that has any interest for me. They have their own version of VANOS which throttles the engine completely through valve timing. The NISMO model makes the same power as a C5 LS1...that's pretty good in my book from a mass produced, 3.7 liter V6 without DI.

At a 90k+ price point, this would not be my top 5 cars to buy.
Love the HP and track numbers , but hate the body style.

I'd have 100 other cars before I'd have one of these.

I love the interior and the rear styling on the GT-R, but there are better cars for the money, IMO. The blue looks good.

I'm not a fan of the looks at all, but you have to respect the performance. I don't care what you may be driving, you better be on your game if you go against one.
Given the fact that it takes virtually no skill to do 0-60 in 3 seconds, it will beat almost anyone in almost anything on street tires in a street race.

The GTR is a great car but I agree that it is overpriced compared to other options out there especially considering aftermarket. I guess I am biased, but the best Jap car of all time is.....

Love the Z's---member Darius Z is in leagues with Ferrari imo and the 300's were riddiculous when released.. The engine swap out and in with a chevy no mount or cradle change imo --- building some of the best looking cars on road -- the new altima is awesome attractive with <300hp and under 3k weight whoa...

The gtr is amazing looking (i agree it aint purdy)too since ya only see them in a blue moon-- well here ya do not, not common at all--- just as the viper very uncommon its gr8 to see them on road-- jaw drop cars indeed..
