Oh, what we would have done to be the gas station attendant on duty when this rolled up. Some lucky New Mexicans had a chance to adore a GTR prototype up close, when it stopped for fuel while undergoing altitude testing in New Mexico yesterday.

Not much is camo'd in the pics, with the exception of the front end and, according to the photographer, the interior. While there's nothing new to report on the styling front, we'd ask you to direct your attention to the absolutely stunning seven-spoke rimmage, framing the equally drool-worthy gold binders.

We can't wait. We can't wait. We can't wait. And this is just the latest reminder that we'll be able to finally experience the pinnacle of Nissan performance here in the States.

Mad tip proppage to Nadir Ali.

      What the story on the interior? Is this a 2-seater car, a 2+2 or a full coupe cable of holding four adults?

      Lose the nose bra and we'll talk.

      Anyone else think the guy was dumb for not trying to sell this pic or atleast put a watermark?

      Just because it's an AWD turbocharged Japanese car doesn't mean it's a tuner car. Considering the price of the previous GT-R, I'd expect this to be around 911 Carrera price, and Nissan have said many times that it'll be faster than a 911 Turbo so that's a pretty damn good deal I'd say.

      Looks great anyways, those wheels are really nice too. They don't look like 20s though, and I'm pretty sure Nissan confirmed it'll have either 19s front and 20s rear or 20s all round.

      As long as you have $80k then sure. I'm betting for most people reading and writing for this site, not so much.

      kind of ugly looking & looks very heavy, but i love the wheels & brake rotors & calipers & tires

      this is basically supped up version of g35x-rear doors, right?

      I can't get past the roof line. Although the actual of road presence of a car can be totally different than pics. However, regardless of the looks this thing should be a great addition - I like more choice.

      The price - my guesstimate is $60k.

      I like it and all, but it really looks like it might be a modified 350Z

      That car looks AWESOME!!! I can't wait until it blows away the Corvette and Viper!

      Ooh...that looks nice.

      Is it just me, or is there quite a bit of Saab in the design?
