Got my C&D February 2001 today.
Well, first of all, I think they're doing the research a lil too quick- it's not even January yet and I have already recieved an issue for February....

OK, now the important stuff.
On page 28 there's a tiny strip about the R35 GT-R.
I quote:

"Skyline Sneaks up on Supercar

Long the hottest ride in Nissan's international car collection, the Skyline GT-R is counting down to a major makeover-due to debut in late 2003-and also a possible first-ever appearance in the U.S. market. Code-named R-35, the next generation GT-R is expected to get a haul-ass 400-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged [ehem, thats TWIN turbocharged - Igor] V-6 or an even more potent version of the 4.5-liter V-8 used in the Infiniti Q45 sedan."

I wanna believe that C&D is bluffing. :{
3 liter V-6? why the heck would they do that? What's wrong with the flat-6?? I kinda understood the point in switching to a V-8, but a V-6? I'm telling ya just make a frickin RB30DETT if you want bigger displacement.

----------
I've seen the future, and all I can say is go back....

C&D is definately full of crap. I didn't get mine today, I always get my R&T first... Anyway, they would use the 3.5L engine they're using in all their 6 cylindar cars now, which would be about 450 horsepower TTed anyway.
Fingers crossed, I hope they go for the 8 for the American market (so I can get one and twin turbocharge it myself for around 700 hp ).
I wish these magazines would research more for being so full of themselves.

P.S. I forgot to mention the fact that they might use the 3.5 for reasons of cost efficiency, they already have the resources for it and would need little more to add the twin-turbos. Still the 8 would have so much torque...

I can live with the wedged rear fenders[kind of reminds me of the s15] but that front end... The R34 had so much style, did they have to change it that much?

The new Skyline is a piece. The R34 was just awesome looking, then they have to go and thow Skyline down the poop shoot and make it look like a G35.

why go with a v6? They have em just layin around. they have the 2.5 the 3.0 and the 3.5 in their other cars, so why not just use one of those, instead of having to create a whole new engine cast. But, yeah it's not as good lookin as the last 1's.

Re: R35 GT-R continued...

Stop complaining. There's at least two years until the car is launched. No one even knows what the final car will look like yet.

No. The chassis designation for the Infiniti G35 and Nissan Skyline GT250/350 is V35. The G35/Skyline GT350 Coupes are designated as CPV35.
