Thanks to Pistonheads, we have a chance to go back to 2008, to see Chris Harris sporting a beard - and, embarrassingly, to hear him referring constantly to the GT-R as the 'Skyline'. Nobody makes that 'mistake' anymore!

Thanks for posting that young man. Given that performance has continually improved over those two years and that the 0-60 3second barrier was beaten by the MY12 its interesting that only recently have both McLaren and Ferrari announced their first road cars that do that too!

 

I did also like the phrase "baby Veyron"!

I should also say that I don't think we'll ever see the like again :angry:

Can't believe it's been over 9 years of GTR ownership now
There still is nothing worth replacing the Datsun with despite the price increases over the years
Got a thumbs up from a BMW 650 convertible driver on Sunday now that was a surprise!

I got one from a McLaren driver the other day. I was so shocked I nearly didn't manage a wave!
