2008 Nissan GT-R Skyline Concept Spy Shots

Spy photographers caught some pictures of the Nissan GT-R concept taking laps around the Nürburgring this week in Germany. due to be released as a 2008 model in Japan, the GT-R Concept is said to be powered by a 3.5 to 3.8 Liter Twin-Turbo V6, and carry over 450 hp.

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?

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
