Godzilla is back on the streets of Japan!

Saw my first one...so I had to flip a ***** and go back to see it.
Absolutely gorgeous car. Dealership was nice enough to let me oggle it. Didn't bother asking for a test ride. I want to drive it...not be a passenger.











For a mere 7,700,000 yen in Japan you can have one of your very own, hate to see the added costs for shipping these to the states,

The manager of the dealership was nice enough to tolerate my Japanese.
I was surprised, and actually did a fair job.

I asked him which GT-R was his favorite. His answer was this one, pointing to the sexy black beast. When I asked why, he said because Nissan put everything they had into reviving the GT-R and that this car, was by far the best GT-R out there.

I guess they went on sale on the 2nd of December.

Now that the GT-R is back....maybe Nissan can get to work on bringing the S16 to life.

Did a helluva a drift in the intersection to do the U-turn. They liked that

no, they are 6 speed automatics with paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
Supposedly a 5 speed is coming out.

Not 100% sure about that though
