    technician, because you don't learn how to repair vehicles that don't exit yet.

    The only thing thats known about the car is the Styling on GTRproto everything else is just BS.

    Every import (tuning) magazine is spewing 3.0-3.7 litre TT v6, while the Review mags are saying either those or a v8 (possible tt).

    I say it's going to get a version of the Titan v8 that will redline at 7500rpms. Why do I think this? Because I think it would be funny and cool.
