Hey, I want no more about the GTR R-34 V-spec cause I might get one. Can someone please e-mail me at davebaker7@hotmail.com and tell me info and pictures and how it compares to other super cars.

Thanks,

Dave.

Hohoho! just seen a R34 that's done less than a 1000 miles for £25,000?!? Import of course... all hail the BATTLE GOD- GTR!!!

I love the Skyline and I would love to own one, the only problem is I would never see one in the United States and I think that really sucks. I guess I would have to move to Japan in order to own one LOL.

Another option is to get a Sunny GTi-R as it is as fast 0-60 as the GTR. At about 7000 for a good one it's very good value for the speed.

Just interested how can you spool up to 8,500 and dump the clutch, considering the R34 only revs up to 8000?

You guys think too much------- and it is a dream to get one here; Although I really want one.

I own an Impreza WRX STi VI which is a fantastic car, but the Skyline GTR 34 is definitely my next vehicle. I'm a power hungry youth and unfortunately I can barely increase the power of my STi VI at all. A 24 year old friend has a 360 Modena and I calculated that I would need 450 BHP to match his power/weight, and this is what I'm gonna do. Its certainly a bargain car. Ps. Has anyone seen the photographs of the concept GTR 35? It's a stunner.

Hallo, the only think I can say is, that the Nissan Skyline GTR (R34) is the most greatest car in the whole world. In Germany there are built beautiful and powerful cars (AUDI-RS4; PORSCHE-GT4; BMW-M5;...), but the Skyline kills them all. In a few month I'll buy a Skyline. This week I talked to a woman from the german traffic department and she said it's no problem to drive a Skyline in Germany. I'm very glad of that!

I have wanted a skyline for a few years now, but the problem is that they are not allowed in the U.S. something about the emissions. Can anyone tell me how to get around this problem?

Hi, I am an 16 year old in Australia, and I love Skylines. They are the best car in the world, and are so easy to modify, even though little modification is needed, as they go so hard.

By the way, the new R34 GTR comes with 206kw as standard, which is just outstanding, as opposed to the R33, which comes with 186. However I believe the R33 is a lot more appealing to the eye, as the R34 has a somewhat outlandish look.

Seems there's always some one with all the answers. If the two brainiacs who made the comment relating to the redline of the RB26DETT engine fitted to the R34 GTR "" V spec""...did there home work they'd find that the redline is actually 8500rpm!.As far as destroying the drive train...please..the V spec is purpose built car. It can break, but it will take a lot of 8500 rpm clutch dumps to do it.

This is in reaction one post by a guy who thinks the new concept R35 is a stunner. Granting that everyone has a right to his own preferences I still think it is a crying shame that Nissan is thinking of jazzing up the exterior this way. I really think that the current design with its clean lines is the best. Why is it that car designers all around the world suddenly seem to be having the toughest time brining out proper car designs? The Nissan Altima, Maxima, Infiniti G35 and the recent Honda Accord all look like different pieces of these cars were designed by different design teams communicating with each other by playing peekabo. Can't we all please petition Nissan to save the GT-R from the second iteration of curve madness infecting car designs around the world? Audi changed the backside of the A4 even though previous iteration left a more organized slipstream in its wake and hence provided less drag. Nissan has gone for a complete donkey's ass look for its Sentra already. I hope they don't mess up the look of the R35 GT-R. Especially since I hope to stack it against the EVO VII and the WRX STi before I buy one.

The skyline R34 GTR vspec... CAN rev over 8000, why? its tach goes to 9.5.

12th Dec 2002, 17:05

It red-lines at 8000, it doesn't matter how high the tach goes. And how many clutches have you been through buddy? About 50?

Do they make skylines with the driver seat on the right? I hope they do because I live in the usa.

6th Aug 2003, 01:21

Unfortunately mate, no one is going to give you a Porsche, Ferrari etc. And the money you would save by getting a GTR you could spend on making it easily quicker than a Ferrari anyway.

7th Oct 2003, 21:22

Some of you guys really should do more homework because its clear some of you know nothing about skylines. I happen to own a v-spec that I had import I slightly modified it and it can stomp the exotics around here in california. this is for sure no CAR YOUR MOTHERS WOULD DRIVE AROUND .

21st Dec 2003, 08:15

I don't think you can have a twin turbo skyline in America because when they convert them to LHD the turbos get in the way of the steering colum.. I'm not sure, but that's what I've herd.

18th Jan 2004, 23:55

When do you think they will have a Nissan Skyline GT R 34 in the U.S.A.

17th Feb 2004, 05:19

I think unless you have driven a car, you should keep your negative opinions to yourself until you can confirm it for yourself.

I was never into the import scene until I came across the R34. I first bought the R34 GTT, but wasn't too long before I upgrade to the big brother, the R34 GTR Vspec II NUR, one of the best R34 ever made and the last of it's kind.

I had Ferrari owner came up to me at a car wash cafe and marveled at it and asked questions. SO all you guys with your negative stories and dreams, get yourself into a GTR and your tune will change for the better. They don't call it Godzilla for nothing.

Sydney, Australia.

PS: Not sure who claimed the rev only came up to 7000rpm, but the last time I checked my R34 GTR, it says 9000rpm before it redlined, so yes you can dump it at 8500rpm if you choose to. Personally, I loved my GTR too much, but having said that, it is built to do that on track day ALL DAY if you need to.

I am currently serving in Iraq with the US Army. I've been here for more than a year and as a reward for myself, I decided to buy a car from overseas... the car of all cars; The Nissan Skyline. I've arranged for paying for it and what not, but am having trouble with all the regulations and DOT guidlines, blah blah blah. Is ther anyway that I can get some information from you? All I really need to know is; As far as American Spec are concerned, is the car legal in the US and if it isn't how do I make it legal? It's a 2000 GTR and I have no problem getting it to the states, but how difficult is it to get if off the boat? I have heard that it has to have certain windshield specs and certain engine specs. Do you have these figures? Thank you very much for your time and if you can't provide me with the info then I'll try to get it from somewhere. Thank you for taking the time to read this in hopes that you'll help.
