A rare Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür has been spotted in Czech Republic. Featuring a dark grey exterior paint, the Skyline boasts several HKS components along with Brembo brake calipers. Moreover, as stated in the video below this vehicle produces an astonishing 550 hp from the 2.6-litre twin-turbocharged engine found in the standard R34.
The Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Nür and the Skyline GT-R M-Spec Nür were the final production models of the R34 GT-R and were released in February 2002. They paid tribute to the Nürburgring racetrack, where the Skyline was developed. A total of 1000 R34 GT-R Nür(s) were made, with 750 being the V-spec II Nürs and 250 being the M-Spec Nurse.
Owing to the ‘280 hp rule’ in Japan, which was a “gentlemen’s agreement” in the country’s automotive industry whereby the companies agreed among themselves to not produce cars with more than 280 hp in order to reduce high-speed accidents, the V-Spec II Nur models were advertised to boast 276 hp. However, in reality, their power output was probably around 330 hp.
Apart from the mechanical upgrades, this variant also got a different color of stitching on the interior trim. Meanwhile, the speedometer read up to 300 km/h (186 mph) and there were gold valve covers instead of red.
