All of us don't have the privelage of living with supercars now, do we? . Kidding asside, yea - my technical knowlege is pretty weak esp. when it comes to imports. And if you think my automotive knowledge is bad, you should see my less than stellar understanding of the complexities of the feminine brain!!!

No TRANSAM, this car is not headed to breach candy, i know who you are talking about. Guys, the car is really quick. The acceleration is quite scary, much better even than the F430.

@Gogi: Will get the pics you want, isnt that screen mingblowing?

No boss its not a DSG.
I didnt drive it, although that option was very graciously offered by the importer, but i chose not to as there was a line of persons who had come to see the car (prospective buyers), me not being one of them (some day.....just some day) To explain what ecksreturns said, viz;

It just means its a semi auto which is the same as dual clutch, or paddle shift.
In a manual, the clutch has to be engaged by pressing the clutch lever with your foot. In a semi auto or clutchless or paddle shift, the clutch is operated by electronic sensors which when the paddles are depressed, thereby adjusting the torque and timing to actuate the shift effortlessly and smoothly

Definitely, a brilliant car... Power and Aesthetics in total harmony.

Just wondered, what about the servicing and repairs since it is quite a sophisticated engine ??

Just got lifted 1000feet of the ground and fell back to ground straight on my back ! What a scoop . Phew ! what a life for the owner . The Speedo guage looks a bit silly. Apart from that looks as menacing as Undertaker !
What a beast.

PS : Would have preferred in yellow or silver

There are some serious doubts about the actual power output of the GTR. Its estimated to be a lot more than what it claims. Here's a article
