That car looks hot in any color.

As does the Z06.

I hate the front end on those GTRs. They look like a 350z and a celica had a head on collision. Other than that, the car is damn hot.

<Nissan designer meeting> Today were going to take a G35 coupe, put some marano headlights on, corvette tails, big wheels, then drop a bored out VQ35 in, and twin turbo it. We will call it the GTR.

Yeah, you know... people will only like the car because it says GTR. Not because the only production car faster on the Ring is a Carrera GT. :mb:

Wait, plus it's 180mph capabilities, or the 480HP and the ability to spank everything on the road but one car (the Carrera GT) for around 80K.

Yeah, people will only think it's cool because it says GTR.

people will always hate on the GTR and skylines in general solely b/c its an import but yet know nothing about its potential or racing heritage

well the GTR has already proven it can beat the z06 around a track and we both know in a straight line the z06 wins....so really they're both amazing cars and u cant go wrong w/ either but ill sack ride skylines until i'm old and cant remember what a car even is

Proof? Besides that single ring lap time? Which some people even said it didnt have stock tires for...

Untill there are times released for both factory stock cars driven on the same day by the same guy, than I will believe the current Z06 is slower than the (not even out yet in the US) GTR.

Im sure when the new ZR1 and new GTR are released they will have alot of head to get competitions between the two.

I think the current Z06 (the not out yet, ZR1) and the (not out yet) GTR are direct competitors. There both flagship cars for there manufactures that are designed to go balls out around a track. Both are simular prices, except the ZR1 which would probably be a little more. Why would motor trend put out a article where the title "Corvette killer - Nissan GTR" on the cover of there magazine if this wasnt the case?

the zr1 is in a league of its own and is going to cost upwards of 100k after all is said and done. the current c6 Z06 has MORE hp and is lighter then the new GTR. those two cars are in direct competition...not the zr1. theres more than enough proof both thru NUMEROUS reviews and track tests that the GTR will have no problem handing the z06 its ass on the track...maybe not the drag strip, but at an actual road course.

the new GTR is a full 2 seconds faster than the c6z at the ring and thats the benchmark for a production car, and dont give me the bullshit that it wasnt running stock tires or was running some better tune or had the boost cranked up. thats an official number that has yet to be proven otherwise. i give credit where credit is due and the c6z is a fucking monster with enormous potential but hell, both cars are MORE than capable of producing great numbers and the fact of the matter is NONE OF US will ever have the chance to drive one to their full potential

end rant

oh and lets not forget that the new viper is quicker around a track than the c6z....surprised no one pissed a fit about that :mamoru:

that same bullshit reasoning could be used for every single road test ever made
