    2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    This car is just stunning and currently on top of my I-want-one list

    The best video so far, close-up of the GT-R driving around LA:

    One detail we were able to make out is the set of steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for the transmission. As we reported previously, the 2009 Skyline won't get a manual gearbox. Whether that means we'll be stuck with a traditional automatic or a newly developed dual clutch setup similar to Volkswagen's DSG setup is still unclear. Engine details have also eluded us, but we're working on digging up those specs as well.




    My guess is that the GT-R will feature a DSG-style gearbox. After listening to the videos of it testing on the Nurburgring, the shifts are way too fast for a conventional automatic.


    Here they are working on one of the GT-R options, when you buy a GT-R you will get a testdrive in a 911 Turbo for comparison

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    Here's a picture (from gtr.co.uk) of what looks like a more or less production ready car, notice the new wheels.

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    Here they are again (the new wheels), this time without tape camo:

    The "old" wheels for comparison:

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    what will the price be for this Nissan?

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    this is making a GREAT argument against a Z06!

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    BaH!! Test drive to compare to Turbo

    It will be a nice test, a less expensive made in Japan car against the 911turbo... Who wins?

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    I think the price range is around $70K

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    The car looks like a muscular 350Z.
    is it 400hp?

    I was about to ask the same.. I've noticed how Japanese cars never seem to have (oficially at least) more than 280 hp.. Heard it had something to do with tax rules but I'm not sure

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Phot

    guess its just me but, imo the sideview roof/window profile looks awkward...

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Phot

    Its supposed to have over 400 hp, but I don't think we'll actually know until its officially unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Show

    This is only agreement between Jap. car manufactures, that power of their cars will be limited to 280 hp. But because they cant fight against EU and USA car manufactures with only 280 hp, they have already broken this agreement. For example, Nissan 350Z has oficially 300 hp.

    Wheels look similar to the current M3-wheels.

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Photos

    Anyway it will be one of the best for price/performance ratio.

    It would be cool if it is produced as 400hp and AWD

    OK, thanks for the explanation

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Phot

    500HP please:) finally a real turbo competitor, and not just the lightweight corvette...

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Phot

    The gentlemen's agreement in Japan has been lifted for a long while now. This is why there are a lot of concept sports cars coming out from Japanese manufacturers with engines ranging from 6 to 10 cylinders.

    That's correct, there's is no 280 hp limit on japanese cars anymore. I think this gentlemens agreement more or less ended when Nissan released the R34 Skyline GT-R. It officially had 280 hp, but produced around 350 hp.

    Most estimates for the new GT-R hovers around 450 hp.

    Edmunds is on the hunt, new video from Sears Point Raceway:
    http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Gen...photopanel..1.*

    Look at the acceleration and listen to the gearchanges starting at app 2:35, pretty impressive

    Re: 2009 Nissan GT-R: Exclusive Video and Spy Phot

    pretty impressive thats true! IMO unlike his predecessor this car might become a success in europe as well, if it costs clearly less than a 100000 euro...
