Two points of interest here: First, removing the bodywork from a GT-R just makes the car seem even larger. This makes no sense. Second, the background on Brass Monkey's site is an artsy image of a GT-R Spec V badge. We'll let you draw your own conclusions on that one.

Cool Bit of Trivia Department: Nissan hasn't campaigned a car in World Challenge since 2005.

Think About That Department: In the past, World Challenge has kicked off each of its events with a standing start. As far as we know, this won't change for 2010. Godzilla plus sticky tires plus short-course gearing? Should be fun to watch.
