Nissan's most powerful car the Skyline GT-R. The Nissan GT-R interiors can be availed in four shades: Red, Tan, Ivory and Black. The handcrafted Nissan GT-R supercar is priced at Rs 2.12 crore (ex-showroom Noida). For the GT-R diehards, the R34 GT-R Z-Tune represents the ultimate model of the greatest generation of the GT-R.
Outside, there are a few subtle clues that this was an extremely rare version of a classic sports car: red 432” badging on the flanks and hatch, unique mag-style wheels, and the signature vertically-stacked dual exhaust tips. GT-R's Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) monitors weight distribution and adjusts rear brake force to compensate for added weight from passengers or cargo.
It's no longer the scalding supercar bargain it once was, but the GT-R still delivers an astonishing performance profile for $101,685 base. From GT3-spec turbo upgrades to colour choices, bespoke carbonfibre trim, special dampers and anything else a buyer's imagination can conjure, the GT-R50 is Nissan's answer to the apparently growing demand for ultra-exclusive supercars.
A softer, leather trimmed M-Spec variant is offered alongside the popular V-Spec I and II models, which are equipped with front and (carbonfibre) rear diffusers, an adjustable rear wing, and enhanced functionality for the dash-mounted display. Between 1969 and 1974, and again between 1989 and 2002, Nissan produced a high performance version of its Skyline coupe called the Nissan Skyline GT-R.
The S20 gives the Z 432 nearly 50 per cent more power than the stock L20 engine, seriously increasing performance. Few have doubted the GT-R's prowess, but as the old breed sold almost exclusively in Japan new - bar the 100 that slipped into Aussie Nissan Skyline GT-R new-car obscurity in 1991 - very few petrolheads ever had a chance to form an unbiased appraisal of these cars.
It's heir to the Nissan Skyline GT-R dynasty, a motorsports legend that stretches back to the 1960s. The fit and finish of the R34 isn't bad, with brushed aluminium effect trim and, on UK cars at least, Connolly leather upholstery. The Skyline name dates back to Prince Motor Company times, and the GT-R moniker first appeared on the Hakosuka Skyline in 1969.
A guttural six-cylinder howl overlaid with comical levels of turbo whistle and chatter announces the arrival of the fifth member of this tight-knit sect, as an R32 Skyline GT-R glides smoothly into view and wends its way down the sliproad towards the meeting point.
