I ain't crazy about the sound it makes, plus it tried to break Jeremy Clarkson's neck when he tested it in Japan.

Should show a longer version of the video, you know, where the transmission goes KABOOM because it is basically made of glass.

It isn't so much that I hate them, they are great for what they are, but Nissan was VERY misleading about a lot of things, from the Nurburgring times to the performance numbers. If you are going to advertise a car that can do X:XX 0-60 times and XX:XX in XXX mph in the quarter mile, don't then go and put fine print in the warranty information that says "Your Warranty Is Voided" if you try and duplicate what the company did to get those numbers. That is what really makes me irritable about this car.

Nissan attempted to enter the supercar field with this car and that is great, but they should have spent more time making sure that the drivetrain was up to snuff, instead they have a weak drivetrain that can't handle the power. My personal opinion is that they should have gone for a lighter, smaller car (to more continue the GTR's earlier heritage) and not gone so computer ridiculous with the car. You take away the computer and, let's be honest, you have a huge paperweight.

Ya I understand I just think the after market will pick up were nissan left off with the drivetrain and really make it a mean all around car. It would have been nice to see a stripped done skyline rather then a fully loaded GTR version of the car and it would have been more affordable to buy and modify plus less required R&D for nissan. I think they just have unusaul expections for what american consumers want.

In Adelaide Australia we have the best tuner in Australia if not one of the best in the world who has done a lot of OEM tuning in europe and places like that, he has one of these R35 GTR's in his stable (one of many, many cars) he has cracked the computer and TUNE ONLY has run a 10sec 1/4 pass WOW!!!!
