Default Spotted New Nissan Sedan In Dubai!!! EDIT: MAXIMA

I was just at the HYATT in Dubai when i saw this Japanese guy driving down in a new sedan which had a front resembling the new Nissan GT-R. Once he got away after the parking I was curious to know what car this was and voila it has badges to mask up the name inside, front and rear.Even the alloy wheels had the center hub portion removed. The inside seem very close to the INFINITI range as well; anyways here are the snaps...
P.s the badge could be read as PRIMERA even with the tapes on it...

This is the new 09 Nissan Maxima. With 290 hp and a 5.5 s time from 0-60, its quite the bang for your buck. Nissan markets this as the 4 door sports car in the US...

This one looks pretty decent from the front.

actually i think that the front is the only angle of this car that doesnt look good, the sides are awesome, the back is kick @$$ and the interiors are superior. They have come up with a great product in 35k..

I like the center console and the dash layout. Makes it look more like an Infiniti than a Nissan. Not that it's a bad thing.

So, the Maxima is making a comeback to the Gelf. Eh?
The boys are gonna be happy. Very happy!

There were some rumours of the last gen Maxima being a bit crash/flipover fond. Hope they prove it wrong with this one.
