Nissan R34

The Nissan R34 GTR
The R34 GT-R was released to an anxiously awaiting public in January 1999.

Needless to say the overall performance was an improvement on the previous heavier and larger R33 model. While many loved the rounded and broad on road presence the R33 offered, the majority of GTR enthusiasts harked back to the more nimble handling R32 which the factory acknowledged by reducing the R34ís length by 7.5cm. This decrease in dimensions contributed to a balance in handling akin to the earlier R32 GTR.
With many other technical enhancements, the new R34 GTR is the most popular Skyline GT-R ever.
The RB26DETT with an industry agreed power cap of 206kW at 6800rpm specified by Nissan, the true output was considered to be much more by those in the know and probably closer to 250kW. A new stainless steel exhaust system with reduced back pressure and re-specified camshafts for improved valve timing making the engine more flexible with a better torque curve and higher peak-output of 400Nm at 4400rpm. The new smaller twin ceramic turbochargers reduce spool-up time with a maximum boost of 0.4bar and use twin ball-bearings in the water cooled turbo's to minimize friction. The transition to full boost after 3500RPM creates slight lag but when the RB26DETT is on song at 8000RPM its time to hastily shift to the next gear. With six slots to find a home for at 8000RPM the performance is certainly up with most acknowledged supercars from Europe.
With initial acceleration 0 - 60 mph [secs]4.9 and up to 0 - 100 mph [secs] 12.3
The customary measure of a performance cars credentials the 1/4 mile [secs at mph] 13.7 at 103.5.
With a Curb weight of 1540kg (3395lb) the front Brakes with 300mm ventilated discs and 4-piston calipers, and the Rear Brakes with 280mm discs with 2-piston calipers have no problems in getting you back to legal speed very quickly after stretching out the gearbox.
