    I hope that graphics package and the blue wheels are optional.

    Nissan, you're so close. Just make the damn front look like this:

    That's a very nice color, though. Always loved Bayside Blue.

    I feel like simply bringing back Bayside Blue would've done the trick. The stripes and blue-ish wheels are a bit strange.

    The display at NY Auto Show is nearly better than the 2 revealed here; R33 Nismo LM and R32 Godzilla race car are there on the stands. :drool:

    Beautiful color! The stripes and the "50th Anniversary" in the back look kinda ricey. The wheel on the Nismo though... Gorgeous!

    I love how they did the blue wheels. The racing stripe? Not so much.

    Beautiful car. If you ever come to Tokyo you have to visit Nissan's showroom in Yokohoma. You get to spend as much time as you like inside or outside the car.

    I love that color. But I really dislike the facelift R35, I'd rather have an early 2007-2010 model and repaint it than get this one. I'd probably save over 50k, too.

    Does anyone know if the R33 GTR-LM is making any other stops in the US? In particular, near Baltimore? Had I known this was going to be in NY, I would’ve made plans.

    This car is a BIG deal to me. It’s the first car you see in GT1 (intro video) and the “last” car that you earn. Here I thought I would have to make a pilgrimage to Japan to see it and then it just shows up 3 hours away... but with Easter weekend coming up, so no chance to break away randomly for a day.

    Exactly, but give the Ken-Meri. My favorite Skyline.

    In got in touch with Nissan via facebook. Corporate got back to me and this is what they said:

    “We appreciate your enthusiasm for the GTR-LM. Unfortunately, these Dream Garage vehicles will not be traveling to any other locations in the US.”

    I can understand them making only one stop on the East coast (unfortunate for me), but I’m really surprised the “Dream Garage” is not making a stop on the West coast. I know there is a very strong following for imports on the West coast and to not stop in at least LA seems shortsighted.

    Man if I could just see the GTR-LM with ny own eyes (and touch it). I'd die a happy man.

    I suppose it makes sense the cars will be returning to Japan. The other big name auto shows in the US are Detroit and LA and those are close to a year away. These cars were brought in to celebrate the unveilings of the GTR and the Z, and they’d well into owners’ hands by those shows’ dates.

    It’s awesome enough Nissan brought them, though for 2 special editions. Those seem like cars that would appear for an all new generation.

    I actually love the Bayside Blue and the other blue accents. Not just because blue is my favorite color, but it looks stylish along with the rest of the car. I'd be sold on this car if you give me the NISMO spec and colored in Bayside Blue. I like this car.

    Love the 50th Anniversary with Bayside Blue! Shame it is getting taxed to death where I live.

    Would love to see the R33 GT-R LM! I have seen a dark blue 400R, that was great. :drool:

    20+ year-old car. And I've seen where these are kept. Not really museum conditions :p
