Default New GTR thread.

If you build it, they will come...

Right in their pants. 480PS (about 473hp) in a car the size of a 350Z? Yeah, no one's going to buy Ferrari beating technology for half the price of a Ferrari.

Not all fast cars looks like sex. The Enzo and Bugatti Veyron are two that come to mind that are fairly polarizing with their looks.

If I had money to blow on ANY car I wanted it would always be a Pagani Zonda. On my current budget if I were buying a car right now it would be a toss up between a 350Z... which I would wait for the 370Z now... and the BMW Z4M Coupe.

I wonder if it's engine will sound as good the rb series in the old Skylines. Other than that, this looks to be one hell of a machine.

The design is growing on me a bit, and I think I'll reserve my judgment till I can see it in the metal. Admittedly, I tend to like the lunatic fringe of car design (eg, Modern Subarus).

I wonder how easy it'll be to make power on. If it's easy it'll definitely help the car out in internet-opinion land.

Why are car makers replacing the front fenders with headlights?! They are like two feet long. I decided to do a quick photochop of the headlights, but I ended up doing the whole car. It looks crappy because I didn't expect to do it all, but you get the idea.

The original:


My modded one:

I shortened the headlights, body matched the grille, got rid of the hood and fender scoops, body colored the A-pillar and raised the windows to get rid of the roof wedge. I also smoothed out the body lines, too many creases.

It's still ugly, the grille does nothing for me and the whole car looks awkward.

My guess is someone will do it soon since it's pretty much the same chassis.

Also, since it is a "Global" car, they had to take into consideration silly crash requirements from here as well as vehicle vs. pedestrian requirements world wide.
