I believe the fans of the previous GTR's might appreciate this... I was quite surprised to see this one when it was announced, must be one of the first few new skylines in Australia...

To say it looked good would be a major understatement :D

Sounded like a stock skyline... really nice note, but not obnoxiously loud either. Really moved around the track. Traction control on that thing looked to be doing its thing nicely.

Of course it sounded like a stock skyline! But Americans (like myself) have no clue what that note is! :lol:

Nice shots, I like the last one too.

Supposedly the biggest complaint is that there is no exhaust note ;) "Soul-less" so to speak. Anti-septic. Engineered to perfection. Those are about the only complaints any magazine can come up with anyway! I think the best come back I heard to those comments was "this car EATS souls"! haha A buddy of mine said there is one floating around Metro Boston so can't wait to see one myself.

I have to have my cars loud enough to *hear* when there is an engine problem. :lol:

Hence my 14th car's license plate:

There is a grey one that is in Brighton, MI (15 minutes north of Ann Arbor) maybe some day I'll actually get a shot of it.

Then he'll run me off the road thinking I'm some psycho.

The two guys that own the R35 also own a very very modified R32 (that should have been in the Ironman series over the weekend as well).

It was there, and it flicked all kinds of gravel and other track debris onto us as it came roaring past... Also another sweet car. I got a few shots of it as well, but havent processed them yet.
