The Los Angeles Auto Show hosted the unveiling of the Nissan GT-R which many car fans have been waiting for. The 2009 Nissan GT-R will be made available to American consumers next year and at the Los Angeles Auto Show, it looked like Nissan will be having a lot of consumers lining up for a piece of this performance car.

David Thomas of Cars.com had this to say about the GT-R: “This was definitely the car that got the most attention. Nissan got the prime spot on the floor for its display, and the GT-R handled the spotlight a lot better than a young celebrity. The interior wasn’t worthy of a $70,000 price tag, but as a package with the monster engine it will get a lot of folks on waiting lists, checkbooks in hand, tongues wagging.” For Thomas, this is definitely among the winners at the event.

Also of Cars.com, Joe Wiesenfelder said: “The interior is only so-so, but the same could be said of the Chevy Corvette and Dodge Viper, which are the closest in terms of performance and price for the remarkable 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds (according to Nissan). What struck me is that you don’t have to be a car nut who has heard about the Skyline forever, and wished Nissan would import it, to appreciate it. It’s impressive enough to draw a huge, uninitiated crowd.” Again, the GT-R is adjudged as a winner by Wiesenfelder.

Mike Hanley, the third judge gave the GT-R the “winner” tag saying: “Both the exterior and interior styling of the car seem a bit jumbled to me, but I can overlook that because I know those who are going to buy it care most about its performance credentials, which are impressive. If we’re to be tormented by yet another “Fast and the Furious” movie, let’s hope this car is in it.”
