We just got done reading Inside Line's take on the new Nissan GT-R, its painstaking development at the Nurburgring and how Nissan engineers sought to make it the definitive everyday supercar, a title that its Porsche rival has assumed for the past several years. A number of eye-opening facts were revealed, including that only about ten-percent of dealers will be able to service the GT-R (those being the only ones able to sell it), that the seats were designed to be almost infinitely adjustable and that according to the GT-R's design director, Shiro Nakamura, "We didn't want a nice elegant shape. We wanted an original shape." Check that.

The other interesting tidbit was that Polyphony Digital, the company behind the Gran Tursimo franchise, was contracted to develop the multifunction LCD – a staple of the last generation GT-R. The new display, much like the old, will log dozens of different pieces of information – from engine temps to Gs – and if it's anywhere near as cool looking as the teaser image above, we're sure it will provide endless hours of amusement for lucky owners and their motion-sick passengers.
