@speedhunters_dino @Gianluca FairladyZ Okey, so this means that in one way everyone has it's own concept to match the challenge. In other words Suzuki focuses to build touring car shaped F1 car, don't you think? Let's take the most unaerodynamical cars of all time, the F1 cars. They produce almost a ton of downforce. But they wheigt almost nothing, and are equipped with 800hp powerplants. I'm sure Suzuki-San spendt almost a million $ on that S15...

I have to say, the white almost stock exterior Silvia is a really good example. It hasn't got all these hyper-aero modifications. But it's enough to achieve 58 seconds laptimes (sure with a proper suspension and engine setting, and no doubts about the driving skills). So my question is, is on a track like tsukuba with low speed corners ( exept the last corner ), is there really a need for such complex wing constructions? Let's take tracks like Suzuka, or Silverstone, or comparable.. I would say that there, the need of such complex constructions make more sense, and are more effective! It makes me wonder how much gains they really make with all these monstruous constructions....

Nice.... But remember it's a concept... I hope for the Honda Fans it will come out like this! By the way speedhunters, are you at Geneva actually?

@speedhunters_dino : Dear Dino, as we all know you know a lot of higher ranked People in the automotive industries. In case that you meet Mr Carlos Ghosn please tell him my message: Dear Mr Ghosn, I apreaciate the fact that you reanimated the GTR with the R35. I have a proposal for the next Z car and the VR38DETT engine. Please reinvent a new RB26DETT engine with direct fuel injection and all the gadgets of this new era for the new Z car coming, and please make more use of the VR38DETT engine in other cars.... But leave the most powerful in the GTR... For exclusivity... You know.. ;) ;) ;) Itadakimasu i'ts lunch time in Switzerland see you later guys!

You know.. A car has to be attractive nowadays and has to make it right to everyone... Beginning from the 16yr old kid dreaming about it, to the 60yr old man driving it...The Germans are able to sell their cars everywhere.. They are nice and well designed, in fact attractive...This is what sells cars in my opinion ( of this segment).. I think that Japanese car makers need to push more their design and go more innovative with their power plants! Hell, the time of powerful N/A engines at the moment is over... Look at BMW, they developped a Diesel engine on series car with 3-Turbochargers..?! Japan has the ideas, the technology, the skills, etc.. But they miss the emotional aspect of building a car, and that's were they fail compared to Europe... I hope they wake up and take the challenge against the imperial German car fleet! What do you think?
@MikeGarret: That's crazy man :) I never imagined there would be such a Scene in Japan. They are so creative! I love Japan more and more... ^^

To me it's almost something unbelievable that older cars like the FD and the R32 can achieve such fast laptimes. Everyone know's that GTR's have huge potential, but this Shows that the FD is a real good base to build a serious race car. Does someone know why they never tried to race in GT500 (despite the proven potential of it) ? I think FD's raced in GT300 with Amemiya-San. Even if my dream's to own a GTR one day, Mazda please revive the RX-7........ And please make it Turbo...:)
