Spotted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Nissan GT-R (Part 1)

Editor's Note: This isn't the last time I spotted it this summer, click here to see pictures of a white-colored GT-R in the same area a couple weeks later.

I was squealing like a teenage girl at a backstreet boys concert when we passed by it in Desa Sri Hartamas (near Devi's Corner, for those in the know). That's when I proposed we turn around the block while I take some horrible but touched-up (thanks Picasa!) cell phone photos.

From Wikipedia: Nissan claims a top speed of 190 mph (310 km/h) and has been tested to achieve 0-60 mph (97 km/h) times around 3.5 seconds. Apparently, the proposed US-bound version which has still to ship by the end of 2008 will have the top speed limitation removed--a issue that plagues all Japan and ASEAN-region models.
