Roggina u may need to go read again, no where in the article did they talk about a TT v8 besides there mistake, they mentioned that the gtr uses a v8 in GT1
Roggina Froggina Nov 13, 2012
If you read the upper part of the article, it talks about using a TT V8 instead of a V6. I guess they use them in FIA GT1. Without regulations, the TT V8 would be terrifyingly fast.

Yes it def a typo. You can see the V6 in the video
William Downs Nov 13, 2012
Gt3 gtr uses the 3.8ttV6, as per the gt3 rules ...that's a typo
David Hicks Nov 13, 2012
Not sure if smartass about typo or not.

Twin turbo 3.8L V8? I thought the GT-R rocked a TT 3.8L V6. Perhaps this is the racing version.
Darren Nardo Nov 15, 2012
Yeah I thought that's what it said I just hadn't heard the use of a v-8 in a GTR until reading this article. Wonder how it compares to v-6 tt version on the track??
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 14, 2012
Read again. The GT1 has a V8, cause of the regulations, this is the GT3, with a V6.
Darren Nardo Nov 13, 2012
This article says the race version is powered by a v-8?? Never knew they had a v8 for the GTR!

Hey Erich lets chill out there. Wasn't actually talking to you or about you
Tyler Tarbox Nov 13, 2012
@Colby. True. However some people have very ignorant opinions, which can get annoying
Colby Church Nov 13, 2012
Everyone knows if you bash a GT-R or a Corvette, it starts a war. Lol. How many times have we been through this guys? Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, let's play nice. :)

Erich this is definitely not rice. That term can never describe a GT-R.

@Justin. Did you even look at the picture? It has a wing already. A pretty big one
Justin Routh Nov 13, 2012
It needs a wing
Carlton Salmon Nov 13, 2012
I'd guess that most of the body is carbon fibre also.
Matt Piccolo Nov 13, 2012

Zeus Mocha Nov 13, 2012

A GTR with its own bar top.
Alex Renaud Nov 13, 2012
You could easily serve a stand-up dinner for you and 5 guests on that wing, with a little room to spare.
Carlton Salmon Nov 13, 2012
Hell yeah!
Kyle Rawn Nov 13, 2012
Now that's a wing
