    Sadly no ones actualy sure yet...some say 3L with 400bhp some 3.5L with 450bhp...
    Wish i could find the proper engine and performance stats ...Its meant to be going on sale sometime this year....so its kind of sad theres no performance ot stats of any kind for it...but it looks hot.

    Now that you mention it the back end to me looks very like the back end of the newish styled Toyota supra.

    This all i could find about the specs which is very bad

    First off, it will be sold in the U.S. as a Nissan. This should make GT-R purists happy. We know it makes us tingle with glee... Second, the car will go on sale in Japan in Fall 2007. North Americans have to wait a few extra months for their own GT-Rs, but they won't be waiting long. The U.S.-spec GT-R will hit U.S. Nissan showrooms in the Spring of 2008.

    While it's nice to know when we can buy a GT-R, we still want to know more details. Engine type, engine specs, price and all of that other important stuff still haven't been revealed. Nissan is saying we'll learn more "at a later date..."

    We'll bring you all the GT-R news you can handle as soon as it's announced, so stay tuned!


    Under the hood of the GTR-R34

    That said, i'm still interested in the car as I saw what it did at the Ring, but the price is verrrrry high for that car.

    The ass end looks like a Ferrari 360 Modena.

    And Nissan is claiming 450bhp, and that's supposed to be on the low end.

    Here's the actual concept car picture that was released to Car and Driver / Road and Track.

    Leaks have pointed at a V6 Twin Turbo Setup that should handle boost well enough to put it into the low 500bhp range, if you want to tweak your Nissan.

    I personally am a fan of dark metallic purple. Same goes for Orange in that shade. Most dark colors I just love. :D

    Kron, too bad you're overseas... I know a Nissan salesman who would probably make sure you got a good deal...(My boyfriend always treats my friends the best)

    That's what my friend did. He had the RB motor stroked to 3liters, fully built, etc... in a 240sx. he wrecked that car but was able to save the motor, then bought an R34 from Australia I believe and imported it here.

    Thats awsome .....bet he loves that car hehehe.....they just look realy streamlined....
    The japanese and europeans dont make massive literage engines, but we do tend to have very quick cars for our small liter engines hehehe )
    I mean i love some of the american muscle cars for looks and sound, but 7 liters to get 500bhp.....send it over to japan or europe we will make it twice that or more for the bhp :p

    That's simply because of emissions over here. I've seen the LS7 pushing 800hp on stock internals. The LSX architecture is very stout for being such an archaic design. Hell, a few buddies and I built a 1200horse LS2. Twin turbos are fun! :brow

    No not from emissions only from how cheap fuel is in america to..

    We pay through the teeth for fuel, thats why we cant have the big 5 6 7 or 8 liter engines....to damm expensive to run...

    But you also have a higher octane rating than we do. Well...in most parts anyways. IIRC you buys are pushing closer to 100 octane. Or is that mainly for England? I'm not sure on France all that much in that aspect; forgive me.

    No thas cool i see what your meaning though, but to give an idea, fuel for cars in america as far as i know is something like $2 per gallon, here its closer to $7.50 per gallon england probably closer to $8 per gallon
