You guys might not have to worry about the colors on some of those cars. I remember before the first movie came out the cars were not the colors they ended up in the movie. So they may get repainted. Plus the APC thing...sponsors will probably be cover up. Except for movie sponsors. So hopefully this one will be better. Ive heard alot about more Euro car but there arent any picured there so....

This coming from some one driving a Protege. Funny the only people who make remarks about efficiency have no idea how an engine work and drive a slow turd.

It's quite an experince to drive one!!! It'll make a believer out of you!!Not all Americans are gluttonous and inefficient; as small as my paycheck is, I've become quite efficient I do agree with you on the complete defamation of those Skylines! You would think they would have learned a thing or two from the first movie but I guess not! Let's pray that they at least have a decent storyline/script/acting/soundtrack!!!

Thank you Igor for the chance to see more spy photos I'm sure the movie will be very entertaining. My $.02 is that they should have used a different car as the lead, but hey "to each his own":smoker2:

When will you rice boys learn that HP per Liter means NOTHING!!!! Hp to weight and RWHP is what counts, and the Viper is 8.0L. I'm sure that the Dodge engineers were going for that massive TQ that 8.0L can produce not huge HP above 500.

I agree about the skyline's looking bad, but the viper isn't that bad looking. And when you talk about "American" gluttony, even with the V10 8.3 L engine, it weights 300 pounds less than an R34 Skyline.....
Americans are obviously doing something right. No way I am Pro-American cars, I am just Pro-High Performance cars, I don't believe that cars should be "dissed" because of where they come from, thats just stupid. Also, something I forgot to mention, the bigger engines aren't just for HP its for massive amounts of Torque. :evillaugh

I don't think the Lines were that bad looking. I hope they play a bigger part in this movie. If they had been a part in the last one, that RX-7 wouldn't have been the baddest racer. Hey Evomaniac....you really have a Skyline?

If that is true, then may the viper be the epitome of America and retardism for better engine performance. that means efficiency.

jesus

You don't know what the hell you are talking about. Look at it this way, Chevrolet uses a 350 cubic inch engine, and the max horsepower they got out of the LS1 variation was 350 horsepower. The typical 427 of the 60's produced around 430 hp. Stop looking at it as Liters and look at it as cubic inches because liters seems to throw you people off. Only 500 hp out of 8 liters, what the hell do you mean only 500 hp. The engine is 500 cubic inches, and since most engines power doesn't go much above the ci of it, it should be around 500 hp. The engine isn't lacking anything at all so what are you complaining about. Keep in mind these engines are also single over head cam, a very basic V block and they can produce a lot more power then most of the DOHC engines you typically see on Japanese and European cars.

Sorry that this is off topic but its necessary.

Anyways lol I bet those 03 Vipers get their ass kicked by the Eclipses and the rest of the shit. I wouldn't be surprised with the attitude of "Super Rice Wing and NOS make me go Zoom, me go 1000 mph cuz me got 4 cylinder wheeee!!!". I'll just be in the theatre like...bullshit......bullshit.....bullshit......er rrr. Whats up with the pink S2000 though? I can understand it having a girl car that is pink, but damn they went all out, pink fuzzy seats and all wtf.
