Apparently there was more to what Carlos Ghosn had to say at the opening of the Atsugi complex yesterday than what we covered just a little while ago. Besides telling us about Nissan's desire for expanded capacity more than for additional companions, Ghosn also mentioned that their new GT-R will be built at the Tochigi assembly plant...and "its unique, highly specialized, high-performance engine will be built at our Yokohama engine plant."

He didn't elaborate on the engine details, but he did let assembled media have a sneak peek at the new GT-R. Well, the logo anyway. Like our pals at Jalopnik who tipped us off to this item, we can't wait for Tokyo when the car will be unveiled.

Sure we've seen the prototype and the spy shots and even the video tease, but we really want to see the real thing. After all, this will be the first GT-R to make it Stateside. At least officially.
