The all-new GT-R "won't be a beautiful, sleek Emerge or anything like that," says Palmer. "It'll be more a mechanical look. It'll be brutally aggressive."
Palmer confirmed, as TG reported last year, that the GT-R will benefit from hybrid power. "We've registered the trademark ‘R-Hybrid'," he says. "For ‘Race hybrid'."
When asked about the performance aims, Palmer simply replied: "Six minutes fifty-six, isn't it?" That's a reference to Nurburgring lap times: the Porsche 918 went round the Green Hell in 6m57, so it looks like the next GT-R is could go even quicker than Stuttgart's hyper-hybrid. Strewth.
