Most Comprehensive 2012 GT-R Video / Review So Far IMO

Saw this pretty comprehensive video of the 2012 GT-R on another forum, thought I would show you guys here too. It looks like the 2012 takes a dump on the earlier model GT-Rís. Lots of little changes here and there really make a difference.

Curse you Nissan, especially you Mizuno-san! I just crunched the numbers and figured I could buy a '09 GT-R to complement my Evo in 3 years. You guys just HAD to go and design something better and more expensive, huh?

*goes back to the drawing board*

It's an amazingly spectacular achievement of an automobile. Strangely, I have next to no interest in owning one. I understand that it's intended to be a triumph of technology and performance but something about all of that traction control and the lack of a third pedal leaves the car seemingly sterile to me, even if they say the 2012 car is more visceral than its predecessor.

Every year i want one more and more!!

Too bad Mitsu isn't as proud of the Evo as Nissan is of the GT-R.
