As you may have noticed, most of the TMR team are big fans of the new Nissan GT-R. Every tidbit of information is lovingly posted, and plenty of discussion occurs afterwards.

Of course, in the automotive journalism world its arguable that no car is truly reviewed until Top Gear gets their hands on one, and puts it through its paces. Jeremy Clarkson has previously let slip what the competitors would be and, come Sunday, the GT-R will finally have made it.

From Clarkson's blog on the Top Gear web site, this weekend's episode (on UK television, that is) will feature an epic race between the GT-R and the other Japanese speed icon, the Shinkansen bullet train.

On Sunday night, there is a race between a Nissan GT-R and a bullet train right the way across Japan.

It is extremely exciting. I think the best film we've ever made.

I hope you enjoy the race across Japan. And now you know it's all for real, every ball breaking moment of it, I hope you enjoy it even more.

As a fan of both the GT-R and public transport that works, I don't know who to support. Both my head and my heart are torn between the two. I think I'm rooting for the GT-R though, and I can't wait until The Stig gets to chuck one around the Top Gear Test Track.
