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

Skyline's were made for the twisty stuff. Stupid journalists.

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

Does the V35 have a renault engine like the 350Z??

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 SPEED 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

I agree but the accountants are pushing the direction and an alloy engine is easier to make emissions friendly. The GM is all alloy isn't it? (major components).

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.

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!
