Toyota FT-1 vs R36 Nissan GT-R?

Nissan Gran Turismo Vision Concept Teased, Likely Hints At R36 GT-R



Quote:
Nissan has given us our first look at a new vehicle destined to join the pantheon of 148 different Nissans that have appeared in the Gran Turismo video game series over the years. The popular racing sim turned 15 last year and to celebrate the anniversary its creator Kazunori Yamauchi asked design studios from all across the globe to come up with a concept using the theme “Vision Gran Turismo”.

This new concept is yet to be formally announced by Nissan—the image above was posted to the automaker’s Twitter feed along with the promise to release more information on June 16—but it's almost certain to be Nissan’s own Vision Gran Turismo concept. Rival concepts have already been shown by the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and Volkswagen.

Few automakers are linked as intimately with the Gran Turismo franchise as Nissan, and no car more so than the GT-R—years before the GT-R came to the U.S., players became acquainted with it through the game, producing a ready-made fan base when the car finally arrived in Stateside showrooms in 2008—so it’s entirely possible that Nissan will use the video game to give us our first inkling of a new GT-R, in this case the R36 model tipped to be introduced for the 2016 model year.

The concept above looks very much like a GT-R, and it features all the latest Nissan styling cues. Could it be a preview of the R36 GT-R? Remember to tune in on the 16th for more information from Nissan.

The front end on that thing just looks out of whack. Looks like it belongs in a Tim Burton movie.

In that case, the FT1 looks better, but we do need to see what the real life version of the Nissan looks like for a much better comparison

Yeah it does, but it's just "on paper," we'll have to wait to see the real deal and that will be much more tasteful looking
