While we already showed you shots of the 2008 Nissan Skyline that hit the web yesterday, some more came across the wire showing the Japanese super coupe running the Nürburgring in Germany and, well, do we really need an excuse to show you more pics of this car? I can't speak for the rest of the Autoblog crew, but I myself am gushing over the design. Subjective standards of beauty aside, the shape of the new Skyline seems to epitomize the essence of Japanese design in the same way the Chrysler 300C represents Americana in its slab-sided sheetmetal. The Skyline looks high-tech, sharp and sterile, like a laser-guided scalpel.
Damon and I discuss in the Autoblog Podcast, Episode #44, which will be out in a few hours, how we think the Skyline stacks up with American iron like the Corvette and Mustang GT500. It's all speculation at this point, but you can also hear my argument for why the Skyline should be branded an Infiniti (heresy!).
