The Nissan GT-R, although no longer carrying the "Skyline" badge, has heritage in the Nissan Skyline GT-R. Like the Skyline GT-Rs R32 through R34, the Nissan GT-R is all-wheel drive with a twin-turbo 6 cylinder engine; however, the evolutionary, incremental changes between Skyline models R32 through R34 have been done away with. The four-wheel-steering HICAS system has been removed, and the traditional straight-6 RB26DETT engine has been replaced with a new V6 VR38DETT. Because of the GT-R's heritage, the chassis code for the all-new version has been called CBA-R35, or 'R35' for short, carrying on the naming trend from previous Skyline GT-R generations. The GT-R has also retained its Skyline predecessor's nickname Godzilla.


Technical Specifications

Drivetrain: Front Engine / 4-wheel drive
Engine: 3.8L TT V6 - 480bhp@6400rpm / 430lb-ft
Transmission: 6-spd dual clutch automated manual
Weight: 1730kg (3814lb)

I don't think this car is cool.

Its philosophy of overt electronic aids just doesn't sit well with me. Sure, I kind of like the looks of it but I'm not a fan of everything deep down. The on-board computer with the numerous graphs and readouts belong on a race engineers laptop while the car sits in a pitbox or the grid before a race. It just doesn't have that raw mechanical appeal that, say, a Lotus has or even the older Skyline GT-Rs (R33 and back) possess.

Uncool.

I am not down with this car. Heavy, big, too much electronic wankery.

Striking, attention-grabbing looks, and astonishing ability land this car a solid cool from me.

I love this thing, but new cool wall in mind, trying to explain it to a date would be horrifyingly difficult and boring. That being said, it's so amazing that it still gets a neutral from me.

^ Uhh, I don't know about you, but girls I've come across think it's a badass car. They know exactly what the GT-R is for some reason

Oh, they have no idea wtf VDC is. They just no what it is, and to some extent, what it's capable of (destroying the big name sports cars). They don't see it as a "nerd's car" or a "Nissan" but just as the GT-R...

I wanted to say neutral, but I saw one a few weeks ago in a parking lot, and it was surrounded by a dozen fanboys. :/ I was hoping it could have shaken them off with this generation.

What, are you crazy? If anything this is THE Skyline that pretty much cemented the existing fanboys and brought in a whole new generation of them.

I guess I was asking too much, but they were the only people I saw that were paying attention to it.

I had no real interest in the previous Skyline range, but I've driven the GT-R and it is fantastic!
