Vehicle In-Game Background
The Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec has been a fan favorite in the Need for Speed gaming franchise since its debut in 1999. The 5th generation Skyline R34 was first introduced as part of the franchise in Need for Speed High Stakes and has since featured in every NFS title.
Vehicle History For Petrol Heads
The Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec is a vehicle that has become iconic within the car community. It was first introduced to the Japanese market in 1999 and quickly gained notoriety for its impressive performance capabilities and sleek design. The Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec is an improved version of the original R34 GTR, offering more power and an even sportier look than its predecessor.
The R34 GT-R V-Spec was initially outfitted with a 276 horsepower 2.6-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six engine, which was mated to a five-speed manual transmission. It was also equipped with four-wheel drive, allowing it to achieve excellent acceleration times on any surface. From 0-60mph (0–97km/h) the Skyline could reach speeds of 4.7 seconds, while its top speed was limited to 155mph (249km/h).
In addition to offering superior engine power, the R34 GT-R V-Spec also provided drivers with legendary handling abilities thanks to its adjustable suspension system and advanced All Wheel Steering system, which allowed for precise maneuvering around corners.
The car’s body style also played an important role in its success as it featured a longer hood and shorter rear end than its predecessor giving it an aggressive yet stylish look that many enthusiasts appreciated.
The Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec has since gone on to become one of the most sought-after classic cars in recent memory and is considered by many to be one of the best cars ever created by Nissan.
Its value has only grown over time due to its rarity; less than 7500 units were produced between 1999 and 2001 making them extremely hard to find on today’s market. This scarcity has caused their prices to skyrocket among collectors, with some models selling for upwards of $100k or more depending on their condition and customization options.
As if all that wasn’t enough, the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec has also achieved status as a legend in pop culture, appearing in numerous video games such as Gran Turismo and Need for Speed further cementing its reputation as one of the greatest sports cars ever made.
In 2003 it even made an appearance in “The Fast & Furious” movie franchise becoming part of an iconic racing scene that is still remembered fondly by fans today.
