Spy VIDEO: Nissan GT-R caught testing in So. Cal.
They didn't come away with just a few stills of the GT-R either; they were smart enough to bring a video camera to catch the Nissan making the rounds on L.A.'s less-than-ideal roadways.
Just like the Nurburgring shots that we saw a while back, a Porsche 911 Turbo is always in tow, but when the GT-R was prowling the streets of Los Angeles, a support truck, carrying varying sets of wheels and tires was never far behind.
Although there's not much to report on the styling front, KGP's crew was able to pick out a set of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that gives credence to the fact that this newest GT-R will not be equipped with a manual gearbox. Instead, the smart money is on some kind of tricked-out automatic, or, even more compelling: a DSG-like setup.
The new Skyline GT-R is set to debut at this year's Tokyo Auto Show and, for the first time, we'll be on hand to cover it. What, you think we'd miss out on one of the definitive unveilings of 2007?
