Best skyline gtr before it could be bought in the USA, also fast and furious movies.

It’s the newest one that was available in the early 2000s, the rarest one in USA right now. They’re rare because to import a car to USA you have to do all kinds of certifications and crash tests etc. So a company called Motorex did all this, and started selling the less powerful R33s in the early 2000s. Later they started importing more poweful R34s as R33s, the feds didn’t like this and raided them. The R34s that were already sold weren’t asked back by the government, so there are a few on the streets cause of that.


Tsutarja495

They are RHD, and so were never sold in the US. As a result, they are extremely rare in the states, because they are extremely difficult to import. However, in 2027, because of the NHTSA's 25 year rule, all model years of the R34 Skyline will become legal to import, and they may be seen more often because of this. This phenomenon occured back when the R32 Skyline became legal to import a few years back.


YamaguchiJP

The car debuted in 1998. Only 5 more years. And about $100k usd


LordScolipede

That or an old school Muscle that my dad/grandpa/son/mom/sister’s wife had/owned/built together/won in a lottery from a Nigerean Prince.

"My dad passed away while saving children from a burning orphanage three years ago. His jet black 1969 Mustang was the only thing he left for me. It took over two years for me and my 4 year old austistic son to restore it back to full health. Today I got in, started the engine, and burst into tears. Here she is, Reddit."

If I were to win the lottery or make it big, this would be the 1st vehicle I'd purchase. The GT-R Z-tune is the great Japanese sports car ever made

Dude. My garage would be filled with Supra’s and R34’s and S2000s and more and more ad infinitum.

Yeah, I prefer the A70. A80 is great but it’s a little to flashy for my taste. Plus pop-up headlights.

PM_ME_UR_B00BS_GIRL

Why dont they remake these cars? Same body, modern upgrades if needed?


nggyp_nglyd

The same models wouldn't pass the safety regulations of today


CaptainArsehole

DOES IT LOOK LIKE WE CARE?!


PM_ME_UR_B00BS_GIRL

A arms and bumper? How? Surely you can keep the body, and update the safety (a couple tweaks here and there)


kim_so_il

Several people tried it. Motorex is a prime example. The couple tweaks wind up being a lot and it never ends well.

Looks like they succeeded to me.

That's nice. Now hop back into your 2002 Corsa and get outta here


porsche_914

Why are you so offended? Is this *your* car?

I'm not offended just making fun of you.

Silver047

These had so much character. Unlike the R35.


[deleted]

> Unlike the R35. foh. Ive driven and owned some amazing R34 builds but the R35 is something else, especially with what you can do with them on the track


[deleted]

And yet the R35 is irredeemably ugly.


takeachillpill666

Someone downvoted you so I'll put u back up to 1, but I disagree. I think that the R35 (especially early renditions) has a lot of character. I mean, how do you get the nickname "Godzilla" without having a metric shitton of character :P


[deleted]

[удалено]


takeachillpill666

my b, thank you for correcting


paradigmx

The name Godzilla dates back to the R32, it doesn't represent the R35. The R35 inherited the name, but while it's still a great car, isn't Godzilla.


JiraTheWasteWanderer

It’s not even a Skyline anymore. Just a GT-R :/


classhero

> """"Just"""" a GT-R


My_mann

That's just fanboy talk. The GT-r is a beast of a car


owndpepe

Exactly. I think the R35 is receiving so much hate because it's become popular among non car enthusiasts and especially rich YouTubers. But it's a damn monster of a car


paradigmx

It is absolutely, but it's not Godzilla. The name Godzilla is due to the absolute domination that the skylines had over other cars of the the era. The R35 is highly competitive, but it isn't overwhelmingly so. The R32 (and R33 and R34) was nigh unstoppable.


owndpepe

I mean, for its price, the R35 hasn't got any competitors


kilo4fun

I guess it's an unpopular opinion but I like the R35 look way better than R34.


JiraTheWasteWanderer

I’m not saying it’s a bad car, I just think they should’ve kept the skyline name. GT-R is used for so many cars, it could just use more identity.


Silver047

Yeah right you might be able to pass nearly anything on the road except for Porsche Turbos and gas stations... No it isn’t a beast. It might have potential to be turned into something extreme, but as a sports car as is it’s obnoxious af. I‘d literally rather have a MX-5 over a R35 GTR


Lefthandedpigeon

As someone who has driven both, this is a dumbass statement. No you wouldn’t.


Silver047

Not a Godzilla. The R32 (and only that one) goes by that name.


Ebo39

dream car, just gotta wait till i can import


Joeliosis

Not sure how... but there are a few where I live in the U.S.


Ebo39

i'm pretty sure there was a company that imported them and said they were importing r32s but actually imported some r34s and then got shutdown by the fbi or something


andrewhoohaa

There was. Doug Demuro has a video on an R34 and he talks about it there.


Ebo39

that may or may not be where i heard that


JPugzz

MotoRex. Also, Midnight Purple R34’s are legal because they’re a limited production car. I think the same goes for Silica Breath as well but I’m not positive


Ebo39

midnight purple is so beautiful of the r34


colin-b

If you're talking about the Show or Display exemption, that only applies to NHTSA regulations. EPA still requires that all imported cars comply with their own regulations, which includes OBD2 compatibility, which I'm guessing this car does not have.


TwoDeuces

Whats worse is that it does. Its just that OBD2 is regional, and a JDM OBD2 ECU can't talk correctly to a USDM OBD2 scanner. Its stupid.


boutr33fiddy

Replicas?


roofied_elephant

Some are, but the legit ones are imported under “car of significance” or some such stipulation.


Barong02

That’s just a rumor. No one I’ve ever talked to in the US community (and it’s VERY small) has ever come across one imported under the show and display law. Risvu claimed they did and now they’re all in ICE custody / probably already crushed.


mshaw09

What about [this](https://www.importavehicle.com/vehicles/19/1999-nissan-skyline-gt-r)?


Barong02

Not going to lie, seems legit unless Risvu pawned off one of theirs before they disappeared. They showed the NHSTA paperwork, which is important but not the only critical piece. Homeland security would've been the other paperwork to prove federal legality. I doubt NHSTA would grant show and display without the others being in alignment though.


TwoDeuces

That price... who the fuck would pay $150k for an R34. If you can afford that just move to Australia or Japan and buy one for like $25k


[deleted]

> $25k I mean youll have no prob getting a GTST for under 10k, but GTRs of this model sit above 70k USD here in Australia now.


mshaw09

It's been for sale for a long time. Not only is it way overpriced, but you can't drive the damn thing over 2,500 miles in a twelve month period. Fuck that. I would love an R34, but for that price, and with those stipulations, there is no way I would spend the money on that. I'm really curious to see how many get imported when they hit 25 years old, and how ridiculously overpriced they will be.


[deleted]

thats only a problem for the US right? europeans can get those if they wanted to?


MaxWeiner

yeah same in australia, NZ and canada plus basically every where else (?) except the US.


TwoDeuces

Because in America "Free Market" enterprise is the most important thing... until your campaign donors start getting competition from foreigners.


MaxWeiner

They're rare but you could find them in countries that drive on the left, like Japan

[удалено]


Blankyblank86

It's not a z tune in the pic its a v spec 2


Kenshin1283

Hm are you sure? because it looks like it has the vents near the mirrors. You can see them on the Z tune from behind here https://i.imgur.com/GOqa7rx.jpg


djhcar

It’s missing the bonnet vents the Z-Tune has though, so it’s probably a replica. Still nice though.


Kenshin1283

Also the front bumper doesn't have the 2 intakes next to the turn signals on the front bumper like the Spec V 2. The Z tune doesn't have the intakes.


Mysterious_Spell

Not gonna lie... I just don't get this car. R34's look OKAY but the hype is just unreal. I didn't even like them in Gran Turismo 2. TVR 4 LYFE, MOFUKKA!


iiKusoii

Some may get mad at me, but i personally think the R34 is ugly and looks like a boat.


[deleted]

Fanboys will downvote, but it does look kinda big and bloated in pictures. Bloated being the back half and big being the front half. That front bumper looks huge in pictures.


sofakinghuge

The funny thing is it's mostly perspective. They really aren't that big. They're just a couple inches longer and taller than an MK4 Supra. They're about the same length as a 5th gen Jetta if that helps put it into perspective with something more common.


otterplus

As a person that loves this car I can totally see that. There have been times where I forget it's a coupe because it's so visually demanding


[deleted]

Personally I think the r34 looks pretty pretty boxy, but the real boat is the r33.


porsche_914

True, but at least the R33 is more angular. The R34 looks like a bloated, swollen R33 to me.


roccoseinfeld

I like them but they are too boxy imo. I prefer the body style of the R33.


Wetjellyfishes

Honestly I don't get the hype around this car.... Then again I'm not a big fan of cars from Asia so maybe that is influencing how I see it.


iiKusoii

I'm a huge fan of cars from asia and the GTR's from the r30 to the r33 are the best.


Wetjellyfishes

I've tried so hard to like asian cars but I've always seen them as knockoffs off what ever last years American/European car is. Kia and Hyundai are especially bad at copying the European cars and there design aspects, I saw a Hyundai with wheels identical to my gti wheels but with a Hyundai logo on it.


iiKusoii

I've noticed that recently, It seems the Asian car industry is starting to copy American/European cars, and that makes me sad because i always thought of the Asian cars a difference from the Americans and Europeans.


Wetjellyfishes

I snapped a photo of a set of Hynduai wheels and a picture of my VW Gti wheels and the comparison is astonishing. http://imgur.com/gallery/HOD19Zv


iiKusoii

wtff those are way too similar


Wetjellyfishes

If the shape was similar I wouldn't mind but those are a straight rip off.


[deleted]

Have you spent much time driving skylines? How many early 90s or 2000s Euro sports cars are as reliable as these, let alone when youre pushing boost through them into the 500hp+ range


Wetjellyfishes

Honestly none are going to have the reliability of a skyline..... But a skyline will never have the character or a European sports car, not in a million years


NWiHeretic

Character in what sense though? Seems like a completely subjective comparison.


Wetjellyfishes

Definitely subjective and I should have premised it with that.


Silver047

Don’t like their look that much either. It has character, but it’s not particularly good looking


iiKusoii

I wouldnt even say is has character. I talk to people who like R34's and they only know them from Fast and Furious lmfao


Wetjellyfishes

Honestly all I see in that car is a BMW M3 E36 with a different front end. These Japanese cars have no character because they are rip offs of the European cars with character.


justjeepin

Man... I get differences of opinion, taste, whatever... But you can't honestly think this looks anything like an E36 M3. I drove a 3 series for 12+ years and it looks *nothing* like one.


porsche_914

Both the R34 and any BMW look like ugly rectangles to me. Not as bad as 80s Mustangs though.


Wetjellyfishes

Maybe I'm blind but when I see an R34 it screams M3 to me.


porsche_914

Brace for the pitchforks, my brother with eyes. I actually kinda like Skylines up until the R33. The R34 looks like an angry fat kid who ate a handful of bees.


iiKusoii

Glad someone agrees with me ! The R32 is where its at tho ;) everytime i see one here down in cali its just a phat N U T

Nissan Skyline GTR R34, V spec 2.


Blankyblank86

It's not a z-tune.


Kenshin1283

Wrong front bumper for a V Spec 2. This car doesn't have the intakes next to the turn signals like Spec V 2. https://i.imgur.com/MIJppWH.jpg It also looks to have vents next to the mirrors https://imgur.com/a/MGVKamP/ It does have the Spec V hood though, which is weird.


Blankyblank86

There are kits, why would someone take the z-tune hood off a $500k car and put a v spec hood on. The rims are not nismo also. There's a dude that lives near me with a full after market z-tune kit on a nur still in jade green.

[https://www.rightdriveusa.com/vehicle/2001-nissan-skyline-gtr-r34/](https://www.rightdriveusa.com/vehicle/2001-nissan-skyline-gtr-r34/) yeah, I just found this exact car for sale. it's a Z-Tune bodykit.
