2008 Nissan GT-R photos revealed early
Seen here is the first ever unmasked photo of the 2008 Nissan Skyline GT-R. American Motor Trend magazine prematurely put the car on their cover too. We don’t have the magazine, but they revealed a handful of performance specs.
The rag claims 0-96 kph (0-60 mph) in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 307 kph, all for under US$ 80,000 (Dhs 300,000). If it is ever sold here, we’d expect much higher GCC pricing, since the 350Z and Infiniti G35 coupe are both overpriced already.
The GT-R’s 3.8-litre twin turbo V6 produces 473 hp and 588 Nm of torque. The standard gearbox is a dual-clutch six-speed tranny with paddle shifters.
Later, more official pictures surfaced on the internet.
