The 2009 Nissan GTR R35 has evinced a great deal of interest from motoring enthusiasts who have been closely following every rumor about the car for the past six years. The car is scheduled for a Jan-Feb 2009 release. The R35 promises to bring to American shores the culmination of the finest automobile engineering efforts that have ever been carried out in Japan. GTR stands for Grand Tourismo Racer. The car can go from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 192 mph.
The Skyline GTRs have been around since 1969 but it was only in the 90s’ that GTR mania hit Japan from where it was transported to America. Like its predecessors the R32, R33, and R34 the Skyline R35 will offer twin-turbocharged, all-wheel-drive and all-wheel-steering. The car will supposedly sell for $70,000 which will make it one of the most inexpensive supercars out there in the market.
One thing that could make the 2009 Skyline GTR a great buy for collectors is its one-off design in which the launch control system which really boosts the vehicle’s acceleration will be missing from the 2010 series onwards.
