Only in Japan.

Now who said that just watching cartoons wouldn't benefit anyone?

They need to hook up with the military's Gundam OS and tout a full Gundam outfit for the general masses... Sounds great!

I don't normally like boxy cars, but it looks nice. Kind of chic, sort of sexy.

I'd like one with a Gundam-esque paint job, that'd be nice.

I'd buy a Mobile Suit MK-II or Zaku.

This is also going to be the first time the GT-R will make it to the U.S.

This is why I love Nissan. I drive my 1988 Pulsar NX with pride!

This has become my dream since I first heard about it a few years back although depending on how long Pulsie holds out, I hope to buy an Altima Coupe next.

Woah! What a beautiful car. The GT-R will be a massive hit in the States. Watch out GM!

Alas, I love the older GT-R much more than the redesign, but I'm glad to see such a great car come stateside regardless XD

I'm probably sure many Japanese cars get alot of their styling anime mecha design. I just recently found out how impressive the new GT-R is actually going to be. It lapped the 13.6 mile Nurburgring in 7:38, which is extremely impressive for a car that's not really considered a supercar. That's two seconds faster than the 1000hp Bugatti Veyron.

From the roofline back, I think the new GT-R looks awesome. But the front end looks like it was ripped off of a luxury sedan. I just doesn't match to me.
