When I was considering getting one, I thought it would be red... my prior and current GT-R are both red.  But this picture is what gave me pause.  The non-matching on the NISMO red to body color is a bit of an eyesore.

he meant all GTRs ever made for the US not just NISMO

ah... got it.  Though in terms of how niche autos are typically resold, the color on the standard models won't matter much in terms of NISMO claims/pricing.  The model is distinct enough and red will be the rarest find.

Of course, the rarest color of ALL GT-Rs will be the matte gray. There will only be 6 R35s in the states with that color.

6 < 3? (red) or 6 < 4? (super silver)

How does that math work exactly???

While I am definitely in "I'll believe it when they start actually producting them for sale" mode, I'm onboard with others who have said what is the big deal with HP?  The old NSX was underpowered to its competition, too.  That is not the target market.  If they do it right, they don't need 480hp+.  The car needs to be light (relative to the competition), have a high revving powerband, and be nimble and balanced on the track.  If it does that, it hits its target market.  If not, then it will find a hard time finding buyers.  Pummeling the chassis with power is the neanderthal approach to building a good handling track car.  Making excessive power should be the last thing they address in the design, not the first.
