If that ride has a v8 i will be more interested. If not, I will probably still b interested. The only thing that will make me upset will b if these cars cost more than 45K. If so, I will wait and snag one once they drop n value and parts r available off the shelf like the mkiii. But, think this way, those mkivs prices will drop like flys when the new supra hits the streets. More for me.

The reason mercedes has those turbos is because the mountains and stuff in europe make it neccesary. They also make 590lbft of torque at 1800 rpm out of that v12. So its not like the twin turbo idea your thinking of, like on the mk4. They probably use little tiny turbos for the engine size to make that torque. Lots of european cars have turbos or SCs for those 2 reasons. Drive a turbo jetta or golf, And youll see what I mean. They have so much torque its crazy, well for being 4 cylinders.

Talking i'm glad to see we are all in agreement =)

i agree with everything you guys have said!

but toyota on the other hands have gottne a little horny, off the idea of having v8 in their line up, and thus have lost the true essence of the car.
correct me if i'm wrong but small block v8's manage to stay a little cooler than a big 6 right? is that why the skyline devolpment team has put so much time into keeping the car cool?

another thing, the mkV is not that hot i'm sorry but the mkIV's have a beautiful design that is ageless, i would be plenty happy with a supra that looked like an mkIV with the fortune 03' body kit from vielside =D

ok ok last thing if the skyline does end up kiking the mkV's but then maybe toyota will be forced to make an mkVI! and if i was in charge of toyota my MKVI would be a
4.5L V6 sequentially twin turbo charged
i'd call it the 3JZ-GTTE and it would look like just like a mkIV with the fortune 03' body kit from veilside


Thats My MKVI ^

what about a quad-turbo v8
with a 6.0 displament
and a turbo for every two cylinders
basically a twin on each side
thats my idea of a 4jz-gtttte lol

(i kno its jus gte but its more fun this way)

or u kno what, why not go crazy
why not put two inline-6 engines together
that way your gonna have a v12
do the quad turbo idea
so it'll have a turbo for every 3 cylinders
how much horses do u think something like that can produce?

Are these Mercedes you speak of really Turbo? Or are they Supercharged?
I know Mercedes has typically done Superchargers which, of course, kick in at much lower RPM. Just curious because I have not seen Turbo Mercedes...but I am no expert.

Do you have a link I can see this sl500 turbo at?
I see the sl500 is being replaced in 2007 by SL550 non-turbo/non-supercharged or the SL55 AMG Supercharged...never any mention of Turbo?
