Super Skyline

I don’t usually post car news, but heres an exception. Today, Nissan finally officially announced production of the GT-R. No more concepts, no more leaked pictures of a car totally covered in a bra sans the taillights and windshield on a back desert road, the real deal. Starting May 2008, for a expected $68,000 USD you can compete with Ferraris at 2/5ths the price. Anyone who has played Forza or PGR can appreciate this video of the GT-R’s ring time: 7:38.
