New Nissan Skyline

Saw one on the road driving in the muddy slush . Can't seem to find much info or how the guy got it over here to the US. One thing for sure, it's gorgeous. Actually looks a lot like the W208 from the side but the front end with the large non-descript grill looks classy as hell. Daddy wants.

I've always been a Skyline fan. There is something inscrutable about them which appeals to my 'Englishness'.

I often get tempted then back off again.

Looked a lot like that but he had removed the Nissan emblem on the grill and had a rear spoiler. I didn't even have a clue until he passed me and I saw the S K Y L I N E across his trunk lid.

Found a video. His car was far less sleek as this with the F1 fenders bleeding into the doors. WOW!

The older ones are sweet. I wonder of the new Skylines even have turbos on them anymore. If not, sigh.

Ah, now we continuously duped Americans can finally have an overweight, power sapping awd, stylistically challenged, tremendously over rated Japanese pseudo sedan here. I do not think I could be more underwhelmed.

That is a plain Jane Infiniti G35 Coupe. It has a Nissan badge on the grill.
