Pricing is expected to be in the range of $70,000 and will be released in America shortly after the Japanese launch. I often hear comments such as “why would someone spend $70,000 on a Nissan?” Well, I suppose for the same reason that people spend $80,000 on a Dodge (Viper,) $70,000 on a Chevy (Corvette Z06,) or $80,000 on an Acura (NSX.) For some reason those cars seem to slip people’s minds. Chevy and Dodge are not premium brands, and people still buy their $80,000 cars. Gallery after the jump.

The only question to ask myslef now: Is it this or the Infiniti Coupe Concept?
