The Nissan Skyline R34 GTR is understandably regarded as one of the best sports cars of the modern era. It has also become synonymous in the Japanese tuning scene in a similar vein to the Toyota Supra. For Americans however, the Skyline R34 GTR in somewhat of a forbidden fruit as it is and will remain illegal in the U.S. for the better part of the next decade.
Consequently, when The Smoking Tire’s Matt Farah headed to New Zealand, he insisted on driving a car he’d never driven before; a Skyline R34 GTR and that’s exactly what he did. The following Skyline however, is far from stock. In fact, it has been modified to deliver 1000 hp and features a myriad of bespoke visual and aerodynamic parts.
Watch the video above to see if Farah is impressed with this demon for the street!
