V35 GT-R. The R was taken away when they decided to discontinue the RB series of engine and introduce the Vxxxxxengines..henceforth V35.

good read, but jeez, the r35/v35/whatever... looks like a joke, thier is just none of the class and style of the r3x family, just some new euro looking audi thing.

bah... bring on the r36... :-D

Indeed it does, to meet the strict emission laws developing in japan and california. The poor old, but legendary, cast iron RB just can't quite cut it any more for emissions.....but screw them

Damn that car is sweet; they also tested a HKS one against a HKS 350Z in the Dec-Jan issue of [i]SPEED [/i]magazine.

The V35 350GT is the replacement for the R34 GTT; it will be another 3 years until we see the R35 GT-R, it seems -- they show it at the Tokyo Motorshow, and the next one (in 2005) hasn't given them enough time.

If GM can make their pushrod dinosaur motors meet the new emission laws then there is no way nissan couldnt make the rb or sr. Its more to do with the bosses at renault killing the inline motors. Suxs renault bought out nissan and are killing their engine development.

I dont see the next generation of nissans having a cult following like the nissans of the past

Saw it again a few days ago ! Aghrrrrr ! Going in the opposite direction. Certainly couldn't see any audi badging on it. Black with a silver roof. Next time I'm turnin' around and chasin' it .

Note Ford are not attempting to export to the states yet, especially the 6's.

I want round tail lights too, not stealth round ones.

'Under the starlit sky staring at your soul wates in smoke. As part of team REMAKE. Not as yourself. Setting higher than a dark sky. It's a time to fly high in heaven'.

It brings a tear to the eye. Will Jap Drift poetry ever take off in Aus? It makes me want to get worse at english so i can make this stuff up!
