If the point was to get a stripped down car to race, they would get an EVO RS. This is supposed to do everything that does, plus more, with more luxery.

Pretty fast for a car driven by a professional racer after about a million practice laps.

The time seems doctored.

I know Nissan needs the recognition for marketing to elevate its brand in order for serious inquiries into an $80k Japanese car, seeing as Honda was rather flat in that regard.

Impressive though for such a heavy pig.

Maybe.

I can't imagine there being THAT many people w/ $80k burning a hole in their pocket for a car. Even then those that eat Ramen just to drive one probably won't have any money for mods.

Well that's a given because it will more than likely be true dual exhaust, not sure.

My car is an I6 and the exhaust was still $2400 bucks. Ouch.

Yea, there aren't that many to spend $80K. But theres enough people in SoCal that will buy one and modify it.
