    Looks pretty good, I really like the rear. I think the official specs will be announced at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan, which starts this weekend.

    Very stylish, but where's the front/rear bumpers? What is the MSRP?

    That front end just looks downright menacing. Is it coming to the states?

    not a huge fan of the front end, but love the body silhouette and styling, esp the front fender flares, makes it reminiscent of the R34 skyline, as well as the bulge over the rear wheels. of course also the four round tail lights.

    also love the 'wraparound' winshield design.

    Should come to the states under the Infiniti brand. Price point is suspected to be around 55,000 for the 6 and 75+ I believe for the 8. Of course you will only find them on the lot for 60 and 80 respectively.

    The G35 (Skyline) should also get a rework in '07 as well.

    It's supposed to let you feel the road much better than previous versions, Nissan is focusing on drivability rather than brute strength on a 2-ton car. They also lost the name "Skyline" on this car and stuck with GT-R.

    About the engine, I've heard anything from a dual-TB 450hp VQ30DETT to a VQ45DE.

    I must be getting old. I'm liking the stylings of new cars less and less.

    They look too "bulky" to me.

    I like Nissans, though... [​IMG]

    They have always been known for their drivability and their great handling, not so much for the brute force (which they do create in tuned form).
