First Nissan Skyline GT-R @ Si Ayutthaya Road, Bangkok

Add: TVR GROUP CO. LTD. @ 533/9, Sri Ayuthaya Road, Thanon Paya Tai, Ratchatewi, Bangkok, Thailand

Wow ... simply stunning! Did you know this car was supposed to have tamed the Porsche 911 GT3 on the track and on the roads ... It's that good! I think its selling locally in Malaysia at Naza for something like 0.75 million ringgit, drooool!

Stunning from every angle ... pure adrenaline!

ps - Wikipedia says ...
The new GT-R (R35) was never officially named Skyline but is known as the successor to the Skyline GT-R.
It was released in Japan on 24 October 2007 at the Tokyo Motor Show. It is expected to be released internationally during 2008 as a 2009 model. It was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show, following the leak of the December issue of MotorTrend magazine that covered the future release of the model. Bearing a high resemblance to the Nissan GT-R Proto, the new GT-R keeps a shape that still bears the traits of its predecessors, but loses the "Skyline" moniker officially.

The new GT-R is equipped with the new VR38DETT V6 twin turbo engine, breaking a 35 year old tradition of putting inline-sixes in GT-R models. The new GT-R still keeps certain technologies that made it famous, like an updated version of the ATTESA-ETS. The new R35 will be the first GT-R to be in production for the United States. The new GT-R has also had a big success in Japanese racing series, then as the racing model the GT-R GT500.
