"The 525bhp 5.2-litre V10 from the coupe will receive a mild boost in power" Love to know how they did this?

Pobably not that hard since it is basicly the same engine as the one in the Lambo and it has 560. Tweek the intake and exaust a bit and some software should do it.

This is great news! I may not want a more hardcore car but extra investment and more models bodes well for the future.

One of the reasons I did not upgrade now and instead went off and bought a Butt Ugly(Gt-R)instead.

Keeping my V8 of course!!

LOL - I was worried you may have been offended by others opinion on the looks of the GT-R!! Ugly is a strong word but I would just say that Nissan really missed a great opportunity on this car in the styling department - something that would match the exceptional performance.

Cheers..no not offended at all as some angles are...mmmm challenging.

However its accolades and performance are what it stands on.

For those that have read the 2010 Performance Car Of The Year post..it is still 8/10ths quicker than the new R8V10 on a racing lap.. would have been happier if the roles were reversed thou.

My heart is in the R8..the GT-R is the sugar fix that gives a enormous rush.

GT-R is fugly but satisfyingly quick - worse bit for me is the chocolate box plastics interior. Great second car though..
