Nissan Skyline GTR:  A Racer That Is Affordable

By Adrian Adams

The Future of the Nissan Skyline GTR Line

As news traveled, it is said that an international Nissan GTR model will appear on the market by the end of 2007, showcasing a 2008 model.  The traditional formula that once graced previous GTR versions will be no more.  Many different modifications will be made, including deviations from the body type and sedan-style.  The “Skyline” will also become absent from the naming of this new car model.

The slight changes that appeared in the R32 through R42 models of the Skyline GTR will also fade.  An aggressive approach towards design will also be seen through the newer model.  Nissan plans to introduce a car that no longer presents the traditional straight-6 engine, but offers consumers a twin-turbocharged V6.  As for the registration of trademarks, the new GTR models will appear in Japan, Australia, Canada, and Europe, offering models to accommodate both left-handed and right-handed drivers.  Also, in Japan, for the newer GTR models to thrive, they must also pass newer, tougher emission laws.

When it comes to marketing, the newer GTR models like the Skyline will carry along advertisements that promote the vehicle as being able to provide many advancements in car technology.  During the Tokyo Motor Show in 2005, Nissan revealed a prototype for their new GTR line.  Only a couple of changes to the unveiled concept is said to take place.

If you’ve ever owned or fell in love with the design and characteristics of the Nissan Skyline GTR, you might want to take a look at some of the enhancements that the new GTR will provide.  To view the production version of the latest GTR, you should keep an eye out for the press coverage involving the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, as the car is primed for a final launch within the Japanese market during the fall of 2007.  In Spring 2006, the latest GTR will make an appearance in the United States market.
