Spotted: Totally naked Nissan 370z

It looks like KGP photography scored a great shot of the Nissan 370z without camo! just ran this story and the car looks AMAZING. I was just talking to someone a few days ago about how no one had really found great photos of the car so far.  Well looks like our complaints have been answered with these gorgeous photos. It looks like I might be have to make a move and toss my Infiniti G37 when this comes out and get back into a true Nissan. Wow!
