i always figured it was a 350z/skyline/G37 (or G37 whatever) chassis, but motortrend alleges that is somewhat handbuilt (not for less than $100k its not) and differs alot from the two cars. if its what nissan says it is, i cant see it being $70k even with a $20k mark-up in todays market. hell the AWD system alone should cost more than a Z06 engine and trans.
