Default First Nissan GTR bites the dust


The Nissan Skyline GT-R has been launched not more than two months and one of them has already bit the dust.

There are bigger photos on my japanese car blog if anyone is interested.

not surprised, enzos have taken it worse than this, in this case this car is a production model, lots more to come.

If I remember right,a Veyron got totalled in the UK. There were pictures on the forum,but I can't recollect where.
I didn't get a chance to scan through all the pics,but I do remember seeing the Veyron on this list.

Holy cow. The first Veyron, & now the first GTR....

Indians are among the best in the world.

People vie to be the first to buy, but we are the first to crash what they dream to buy. If that isn't prosperity, I don't know what is....
