Default I Sat In A GT-R !!!!!!

I went to Hot Import Nights Last Night. I was talking to Daryl Alison from J Spec. He was a really nice guy to talk to. Well, they had 4 Skylines all lined up together. R32, R33, R34 & The new R35. The new GT-R was straight from Japan. So it was right hand drive. After talking for about 20 minutes about the car he let me sit in it. Once i sat in it he than let me start it up and play with the on-board computer. DAMN!!!!!!!

Here are my views on the inside and the computer:

The car is comfortable for short trips (under 100 miles i would guess)
I'm 6' tall and i had about 1-1 1/2" left of headroom
Center console could be a bit deeper for misc items
Interior felt really nice
I'm about 235 lbs and the seats weren't too snug for me
I didn't pay attention to the back seats. But, Daryl said a child can fit back there if you only move the passenger seat up a bit.

Computer:
It seemed really easy to work the touch screen at a stand still. It might be a bit difficult hitting the right buttons while driving.
It was nice and clear to read everything

To start the car up:

I didn't pay to much attention to what he did as far as the key. Daryl either inserted the key or waived it near the ignition. But, after he did that i presses my foot on the Brake and pushed the red start button in the center consol. To turn it off you just push the red button.
The GT-R sounded mean when it started up. It was a nice deep throated sound.
We looked at the exhaust and the pipes seemed really small and restricted. About 2 - 2 1/2"

This is definitely exciting and not fair at the same time. More and more people are seeing it in person and some are even getting to ride in it!!! Keep the stories coming (and pics) even if there's drool in them.
