Re: R35 GT-R continued...

nissan should stick with a 6-cylinder i say. i can't see japanese cars have v-8's in them. that is mainly american (and some italian). but like some people said, we have no idea what it is going to be like, it is still a few years down the road.

Just look at everything Nissan makes now - 350Z, new Altima, Titan all ugly as hell! It's the Renault Frenck influence, it's criminal. R34 was sweet.

All Renault did was purchase 44% of Nissan for a 'controlling interest' to bail them out. Renault has had little effect on on the design of Nissans, especially those in the US. The Altima and Titan are US-built models, likely designed in the US as well. Blame Americans if you don't like the styling. The design chosen for the 350Z was done by an Indian guy from the UK by the name of Ajay Panchal...in a US studio.

To top it all off, guess what? The 'sweet' R34 was done while Renault was in control, too.

What Renault is really doing with Nissan is using their engines and some platforms. There have been at least two Renaults, the Vel Satis and Avantine, that have used Nissan's VQ V6. The Renault Fluence coupe concept is rather obviously based on the FM platform. The next Sentra may be based on the Renault Megane platform, which is pretty darn good. The Megane is also available in turbocharged RS form, with a 2L turbo I4 making 222hp, which opens up all kinds of possibilities for the next Sentra SE-R.

Don't you dare try saying that Carlos Ghosn is French, either. I've heard that one before. He's actually Brazilian, as if his ethnicity matters.

Wow a wealth of knowledge from me you get applause. Maybe that was just french bashing on my part (no not because they don't support Bush's war, it's because their flaming anti-sematism) Either way designed by the French, Americans, Japanese or Brazilians Nissans are now all pretty much ugly! Smart move by Renault to move to Nissan drivelines though.

Re: R35 GT-R continued...

Why Nissan don't use the I6 anymore? Because they don't have anymore that they can squeeze out from it. But in comparison, the VQ engine has a whole lot more potential than the RB26DETT...
From some Japanese websites like half year ago.
And that's one of the reasons that NISMO is not using R34 in JGTC anymore but using Z33 instead.

I hope this is what you need.

And about those Japanese automaker websites, you just need to learn how to read Katakana writings. Then you can pretty much guess what it means.
