R Is More Godzilla Than Ever

Nissan's most powerful car the Skyline GT-R. With just 6,000 miles, the GT-R stakes claim as the vehicle driven (and, of course, raced) by Paul Walker in the film. Out on the open road, the GT-R is an easy car to drive fast. As the penultimate edition of the R34” series Skyline GT-R, and in fact, as one of the last of the traditionally inline-six powered Skylines, the V-Spec II is destined to be a collectible.

The 2018 GT-R carries over some of last year's big updates like a 20 horsepower bump, revised styling, and a more refined powertrain. The company's Le Mans race car, shown above, used a conventional 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine to drive the front wheels and was originally meant to use a hybrid system on the rears (ultimately, it couldn't be made to work in time to race).

Even though the Japanese government makes owning an older vehicle difficult, the GT-R's large fanbase means that well-preserved examples still pass through the auctions regularly. Common term 'Gear System', essentially a mechanism that transmits power from the engine to the drive shaft.

Equipment is generous: all GT-Rs are equipped with sat nav, climate control and all the technology a driver could possibly want. The driver criticized the GT-R's inferior handling, it finished the comparison test on the last place. So we brought together the AS Class drivers - the top development drivers Nissan Skyline GT-R at Nissan - to create a vehicle that would excel at any racetrack, in any kind of weather, in the hands of any level of driver.

Due to the petrol crisis hitting the motor industry, the second generation of the GT-R didn't have the best run, as the demand for high-performance cars seemed to dry out in the early 70's. The Nissan Skyline GTR R34 has elvoled and fine-tuned through 11 years of competitive racing and extensive testing, which has resulted in one of the best race-bred coupes on the market.

These cars should have a 180-kph speedometer from the factory, but there are swapped out often for a Nismo or aftermarket speedo that read 260 kph, 300 kph or 320 kph, and the original odometer goes with it. If the car has had this modification it's nearly impossible to verify its mileage unless it has complete records and other paperwork.

In the following year, Nissan participated the SP8T class with 2 Club Track Edition GT-Rs as works team, which driven by Team Nissan and Team GT Academy , both cars completed the race in 99th and 30th in overall respectively - through they are the only entries in SP-8T class that year.
