The league of extraordinary gents at Autocar snapped some interior shots of the coming Nissan GT-R, just as it appeared at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month. With Toyota jumping ahead of the Tokyo auto show press frenzy — launching its Lexus LF-A in the pre-show runup — Nissan needs something like a home run with the entire Tampa Bay Buccaneers' cheerleading squad on base. These latest shots show off the GT-R's detailia, including pop-out door handles, paddle shifters and a speedo needle that starts on the wrong side but still rotates clockwise. If Toyota's out and Mitsubishi launches the Evo in Frankfurt, Nissan will have the whole show to itself. Top billing thy name isn't Skyline.
