Just a few more days till the "official" specs.

I'm still betting its rated at either 525 or 530HP here in the US. Were already at 485 and with "at least 40 HP more" it would be 525HP minimum.


You know it's kind of funny - I will be the first to admit that I was (VERY) concerned about the large price hike of the 2012.

I hummed and hawed over what would likely be a 20K increase in Canada ($119,500 base from $99,500). It's a big increase.

But - I was at Chapters today - reading the new Road & Track which had the stats page at the back (showing cost of the cars and their performance) and it really set things straight for me;

There are few cars even remotely close to the GTR in terms of what it can do for the price (track as well as straight line numbers).
Even if they raise the cost of the US model to over 100K - only the ZR1 and Viper has anything close to offer at the same price point.

Most other cars were high 100's (like the Porsche's) to 400K (Ferrari's, Lambo's, LFA) for similar numbers.

Nissan is not exotic (and they have said as much) - but their product is pretty damn impressive for the dollar.

So - for me - it looks like there's still really only one way to go... :OMG:

very interesting. those modifications.. tire, diffuser, exhaust.. look very specv-ish
ill bet there are many more little tweaks made that we don't know about or haven't been talked about (and may not be)

Nope, a Black Edition. The new Recaros come in full leather and are REALLY nice. Very supportive.

Those are not the standard seats, they are the optional Recaros. We have to wait to see what the US might get seat wise, but I think you would get a good idea if you try out an 09 , 10 , or 11.

You should be fine in at least the regular seats. My 6'6" friend fit comfortably, even with a 5'9" passenger in the back. See?

Wont the seats for US cars be slightly wider than for JDM cars? A test drive in a 10 should give you an idea....

Quick question - the GTR in this video doesn't have the LED's in the front - are the LED's an option or standard?

Not sure if the midpipe looks any different. Just has some color change probably due to constant heat

My guess is that the price goes up around 6% in Europe. In Sweden the Black Edition costs 851,000SEK today. I estimate that the new price will be 905,000SEK. And 880,000SEK for the Premium Edition. That one costs 832,000SEK today.

I have no idea how much itīll be in the US.
