As Carlos "The Jackal" Ghosn presided over the opening ceremonies of Nissan's new global design studio at the Nissan Technical Center in Atsugi, Japan yesterday he offered a quickie tease worthy of the best Las Vegas talent (and we don't mean Wayne Newton). Addressing the crowd, Mr Ghosn said of the company's new GT-R: "The all-new GT-R will be built at our Tochigi assembly plant ... and its unique, highly specialized, high-performance engine will be built at our Yokohama engine plant." While the speech gives away nearly nothing related to the GT-R's long-speculated mechanicals (twin-turbo V6? V8? Bell Ranger helicopter turbine?), he did offer a revamped logo badge. Oh well. Only nine months till the Tokyo show.
