The previous R-34 with its official " 276 " HP was doing 0-60 in high 4s. But since it routinely spanked Supra T and - on top of it - killed Porsche 911 on Nurburging circuit, people knew the actual output had to be more in the 320-330HP range. So by now NISMO must've figured that car was too mellow all along :twisted: .

The horsepower in the Japanese sportscars were limited to "276" on paper only to prevent any horsepower wars.

The Skyline is supposed to come to the US in 2007/2008 as either a Nissan or a Infiniti. Can't wait.

I put my car (R34 GTR V-sepc) on a Dynapak when it was totally bone stock and produced 328PS. So much for that 280PS agreement! Acutally as of last summer the 280PS "rule" has been dropped. First production car to have more than the famous 280PS was the new Honda Legend (Acura RL) with 300PS. Now Subaru's ST203 has 320PS, the new 350Z 30th Anny. has 300PS...new Supra will have 500PS, next GTR 450~500...looks like a power war will start here in Japan as well.

I'll actually be driving the Z-tune this month. I'll throw up some pictures and thoughts when I get a chance. But as with every Nismo car I have driven you can bet its the best and most complete car possible. Sure a lot of other J-tuners have gottent way more than 500HP from a GTR but those cars always end up feeling like race cars with no refinement whatsoever...not to mention they brake pretty easily too! With Nismo you pay a bit more (ok a lot more!) but you get piece of mind and superb service.[/i]

Loved that video. It bring me back my old memory of watching a R34 Nismo passing me so easily in Korea some years ago. I always liked its boxy design. Nice video, Ba Ba.

its a nice looking car, but for that price you can build a a normal r34 gt-r and make that same amount of power and half the money and with the same displacement. i understand that its a collectors car and if your a car collector then yes, this is the car to have since 20 are going to be built but, not only that but its all nismo tuned and they put there heart out on this car.. ...

I wouldnt mine having one added to my garage, but i wouldnt lose my left nut for it.
But for some apparent odd reason, i find the the r33 more appealing in certain angles than the r 34, plus im a very old school guy and if i could get my hands on a 2000 gt-r then that would be very nice.
