  3. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    actually there will be a variety of engines

    for the export markets chiefly america there will be a v6 or the 4L v8 options and for the local japenese market there will be a turbo six although not the rb26dett this turbo model will be the most sort after and will find its way all over the world through small volume private exporters just as the past gtr's have soo dont sweat to much at least there'll be a tuneable turbo. we just have to wait and see if it has the potential of the old RB

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.i knew about it not having an RB26DETT, but not having a frickin inline-6 is just sad, and whoever decided they should put a V-6 and V-8 in it should be shot because not having an inline-6 in a skyline is wrong. even the thought of it makes me want to cry.
     
  9. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    IN ROAD AND TRACK MAGAZINE THEY HAD A IT IN THERE AND THIS CAR IS THE UGLIEST SKYLINE I EVER FUCKIN SEEN AND IT SAID IT MIGHT HAVE A V-8!!! WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT
    THATS NOT IMPORTS I DONT WANT MY FAVORITE CAR TO HAVE A SHITTY LOOK AND STUPID FUCKIN AMERICAN V-8 IN IT!!!!!!!1
     
  10. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    Actually, the car will be availiable with both a state of the art V8 and a modified version of the V6 in the new 350Z
     
  11. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    The engine is going to be the VQ35 V6 engine as used in the 350Z. I am not sure as to whether any turbos will be added. The reason they are using this is mainly because the V setup provides a lot more room in the engine bay. The new GTR will also NOT be equipped with Attesa or super HICAS but rather with much newer technology (These systems are more than 10 years old). It is actually still of debate as to whether this car will be released under Nissan or Infiniti in the United States. This informations comes from a 100% legitimate source which I am not in the position to name, but you're going to have to trust me that this is completely accurate.
     
  12. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    I have heard from a few different places that it will run the 3.5 litre V6 from the 350Z with a pair of turbos. Shame about the RB26DETT, but I'm sure that this will be an awesome car. This is coming from a huge Skyline fan - this car is not a "P.O.S."!! I like what they've done with the rear, however something is just amiss. It looks great overall.
     
  13. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    yeah must say its really lost the look
     
  14. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    how about they make a Inline-8 whit turbo???

    the Rb motor has aged and there is not much that nissan can do to improve it. Most likely the R35 will be a V-8, but they do have the option of the VG 6 cylinder with turbos. Whatever they choose the US market will get the best version, according to nissan anyways. The V-8, by the way won't be a big bulky huge displacement motor, most likely 3.5 to 4 litres and if they use anything from the RB it will be the turbos.
     
  18. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    I8 would just roll itself over. in a matter of weeks, you will have a scrap i8. and they lost the look of the skyline, 32, good, 33, great, 34 prefection, 35, wtf.
     
  19. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    im pretty sure they will be using a the VQ35DETT. A twin turbo version of the 3.5L V6 used in the 350Z and many other nissan models. Using this lighter, smaller motor should improve the weight of the entire car. Here are some newer pictures of what the R35 may look like. So it looks like there is still hope for the exterior of the R35.
     
  20. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    Very good description of the car's designs, I totally agree with how you put it. The 34 was perfection. Also, some of you other people, it IS going to be the 3.5L V6, so stop making these stupid predictions about a V8 or a I8.
     
  21. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    Prove it. Give me some link or explain how you know this so certainly. That would be low of them to put out a V8 in the US. They shouldn't stoop to the level of the American big block. Whatever it is, they should keep the GT-R a twin turbo, or at least single.
     
  22. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    I certainly hope they do not put a v-8 in this car, as it is heavy enough!!! I love it, but everyone knows it's definitely a bit overweight so i think they need to keep with the 6 cylinder, and i like the i-6 setup. If thats not enough power, then just add a turbo/supercharger. Although this will create lag, its better than the added weight onto the car, unless the v-8 happens to be very light in which case i say, bring on the power!!!
     
  23. wtf skyline in america?!?!

    wait wait hold up. . the new r35 will be coming to america?! i find that extremely hard to beleive! how can the r35 be coming here if the other "R"s didn't make it?
     
  24. Re: wtf skyline in america?!?!

    Because it wont be with Nissan, It will go with it's own division saying that it wont go by Nissan Gtr-35 but Gtr-35 simply. Of Course Nissan is gonna be helping production with it but it wont have their name on the car

    actually i heard its being kept with nissan, but they are thinking about losing the skyline badge.

    also, i found this pic (a photoshop edit i think) here:

    tell me what u think, i think it DRASTICALLY improves the new skyline, and keeps the skyline theme better
