Check out this site:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.skylinegtr.com" TARGET=_blank>www.skylinegtr.com</A> <P>That car is probably from this place. I definitely wish I had that kind of cash. I can barely afford one of the 10 year old models.

The Skyline has already made it to the United States, in for form of the Infiniti G35. The next GT-R (V35) won't be called Skyline anymore, just GT-R. <P>I am about 90% sure it will use the VQ35 DETT (400hp+), instead of the current RB26-DETT. It will look similar to the GT-R concept that was shown a little while ago. The front will look different, but the rest should remain the same from what I hear. It will be a total <B>beast</B> with ATESSA-ETS Pro and Super HICAS 4WS, no doubt.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.jbskyline.net/V35/GTR/Showroom/Bilder/V35%20GT-R%20Concept%20side2.jpg"> <P>-Drew<BR>

BTW, when it shows up here, it will probably be under the Infinti brand, possibly called the Infiniti V35 GT-R or just Infiniti GT-R.<P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 06-01-2002).]

No, that car doesn't worth the money. Even a brand new (used) one from Motorex is already overpriced, but paying that kinda of money to just bid this old car is just sick.
