2009 Nissan GT-R Sees Embargo Skirt Lifted Higher By AutoWeek



UPDATE:Full gallery of shots here.

The quick-to-the-publish-trigger weekly writers at AutoWeek have lifted the skirt on the new Nissan GT-R even higher, releasing their own hot crop of shots of the little barn-stormer ahead of the Tokyo Auto Show next week. Their reason for doing it? Well, it's because Motor Trend already did it — so now it's their turn. To up the embargo-breaking ante, they've gone live with interior shots too. Oooh, those rebels! Full text of their reason below the jump. UPDATE: AutoWeek has asked us to take down their shots of the GT-R. Apparently if they're going to break the embargo and use their shots no one else had then — you know — no one else is allowed to do it.

UPDATE 2: Inside Line has given us the ok to use their gallery below. Aren't they nice?

Nissan's GT-R super coupe is set to be a star at next week's Tokyo motor show. So far, the best we've seen of the it are spy shots of prototype vehicles getting hammered around places such as Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca in Monterey, California, and along the famed Nurburgring race track in Germany.

That was then, this is now: Here's the new GT-R in all its un-disguised glory.

The reason you get to see it this week instead of next is simple—the embargo on information was broken by Motor Trend magazine which put the car on its December cover; an image of which was released to promote an award.
