General Comments:

The R34 Skyline GT-T is not such a little brother to the GT-R. Its got 280hp (just like the GT-R) and less weight!! (rwd only, thus no heavy 4wd hardware to lug around).

Performance is very good, but 6.0 seconds 0-62mph can easily be bettered with very little tuning effort. It runs at 0.6 bar boost as standard, but can easily take 1.0 bar. With upped boost, anti-cat exhaust, hks filter and plugs you'll be seeing 360hp and a 0-100km (0-62mph) time in 4.5 seconds which is GT-R territory!!! Add some 18's and lowering springs to complement the excellent HICAS 4-wheel steering and you have a very impressive coupe with effortless acceleration and awesome ability.

This car replaces a tuned 300hp Toyota MR2 Turbo and I am very VERY happy with it! The MR2 was a hard act to follow. Get these mods and you will be grinning like a cat!

I really wouldn't bother with the GT-R unless you want BIG power (i.e. 500hp+) since for the price difference you can save big cash (a 2 year old GT-T R34 is around 20K GBP while a GT-R R34 will be 30K, save the 10K and get a 25GT-t and tune it until it sings! Save yourself 1/3rd!! Think of all that cash then go on holiday to the Carribean with the money you just saved!!!

I have to say I have a white GT-T R34 and I have had no problems to date at the moment. I'm really happy with it.

I like your review and its only adds to what I consider to be a car which is under rated by the the fact not a lot of people know it exists.

General Comments:

Probably the most exciting car I've ever owned. Spool the engine up to 8500, dump the clutch, and watch as you take off like a jet from an aircraft carrier. All 4 tyres grip and you move. Modify it slightly and you get even more performance. Try to keep your balls from leaving you behind.

I love Skylines, they turn more heads than 911's and tuned up one are amazing, problem is I am only seventeen and have an MG Metro. But I have seen so many cheap second hand ones so come the time when my insurance comes down the 2.6 twin-turbo power will be very useful (evil laughter) ha ha ha.
