No, ring time is 8:28. Its not the package that its made out to be by movies and its cult followers. Slowest GTR out of the lot.

I think this is the coolest gtr produced by nissan and with a bit of tuning it will be more than enough for an old guy in his early 40s

@Driver

Its probably pretty simple. Do some research on GTR forums and I'm sure you can find a quick fix for the limiter. I've removed limiters from various 90's model nissans with simple & free tricks. You probably just need to clip a wire or change out a resistor.

Of course you could go the expensive route and buy a piggyback ECU or reprogramer.

I'm aware of the Z-tune. THat car has no bearing on what I was talking about though. The base R34 GTR (discussed here) will not run a sub 7:50 time around the ring in stock form with the limiter removed.

The Z-tune could probably do it, but there's no proof it has.

@Apathy: The R34 Nismo Skyline GTR Z-Tune is a special made by Nismo (Nissan) based on nearly new R34's as the production had officially stopped. With 500hp and 540Nm and the lighter weight, special aero and its certainly capable of diong that laptime. The R34 Skyline GTR V Spec II Nur might very well be capable of the laptime too as it officially has 280hp, but in reality it has well over 330hp...

If there's any group that can drive the base R34 GTR to its potential (and beyond as they like to exaggerate things) it's Best Motoring.

Look at the cars that were quicker than the GTR (with all of them being driven by BM) on small tracks like Tsukuba, where the GTR would really shine. It's slower than the 993 GT2 at Tsukuba and Suzuka. Now, I'm almost certain the GTR would never go over 110 on a track as small as Tsukuba and its AWD system would be at its prime on a track with such tight hairpins. And yet it's slower than many cars, including the 993 GT2.

Now, the 993 GT2 is clearly the quicker car. There really is no arguing that. What is the GT2's Nordschleife time? 8:09...

There's no doubt the GTR would be faster without a limiter, but I don't think it would be that much faster.

Also, the quick time you're talking about is the 8:01 V-spec R33. And it's a well known fact that the car had weight and power differences, as well as the limiter removed. SO yeah, unless I see proof, a 7:49 is BS.

I mean, come on... That's Audi R8, M3 CSL, 997 GT3 RS territory. Give me a break...

Actually, the vspec was the first production car to break the 8 min barrier. It ran 7:59. The 8:01 time you were thinking about 7 years ago, is the R33 standard GTR. The R34 officially ran 8:28 but that car wasnt built on races to win. It didnt really race anywhere whereas the 32 built its name on destroying its opposition and the R33 kept that going, even entering the LeMans. R34 was nothing more than a poster car appearing in movies and having its cult created via social media. Truth be told, its the slowest skyline of the 3. Its the slowest GTR of the 3 but its worth more than double any of the others, figure that one out.

@Apathy: fastest road legal Skyline is the R33 driven by Reece McGregor that did a 7.57 @ 197mph so there you go.

Was an R32.. Although right now, the fastest skyline down the strip is an R33.

The Nurburgring time posted is 100% accurate. 7:49 is highly unlikely.

Dan W, if you were aware of how powerful engines can be tuned to, you would not tote the R26 as so great. You think 1600hp makes it the second most "tunable" engine ever? Yeah it's damn impressive, but let me know if the GTR ever makes over 2000hp or runs anything quicker than a mid 7 at 180mph.

Did you know the 4.6l DOHC ford cobra motor has seen over 2000hp and run a 6 second quarter mile at over 210mph? Did I mention that was done using the stock block, crank, and heads (they were ported).

There is MUCH more out there than the dated JZ and RB series.

dan w  7y ago

some of you have noticed these facts are wrong,

the nurburgring record for an r34 is 7.49, cars in japan are restricted to 180kph(112mph) from factory, delimited though and it can do 155 - 165MPH, it weighs 1560kg. The rb26 engine is widely regarded as the 2nd most tunable engine ever(behind toyota supra 2jz), it can be stoked up to 3.2 litres and has been know to output 1600hp and 13,000rpm!

yer 1 agree with bumrush not many people know about it being called a BNR34 so we will just use the term GTR-R34 & who knows a Reliable importer for S15's & good custom body kit builders

BumRush  9y ago

Were just gonna stick with R34...


User avatar

GTR256  9y ago

First of all, the R34 GTR internally known as BNR34 was released in 1999, NOT 1998 as stated. Second to that, the 0-60mph time is incorrect as is the weight of the vehicle. It weighs 1540 KG. It just gets me wondering where people find facts like this??

This link has a stock R34 doing 13 flat in the 1/4 mile, although I've seen 12.9 as well.

This car definitely has more than 280ps at the flywheel lol. MOTOR magazine dynoed one, advertised at 206kw at flywheel, but it developed 217kw at the WHEELS lolzzzz. :D

I agree, the R35 is too radical. The older cars make it look ugly, at least from the front. Can't argue with the areo though, so it's not really a bad thing.

i don't get y they didn't put the motor from the r35 into the body of this car. cause i think that this looks nicer than the r35

Officially it has 280 PS, unofficially it has more, about 320-340 PS. A German car magazin (maybe Auto Motor und Sport) wrote, that GT-R R34 has 332 PS.
Wikipedia also writes, that it has 332 PS. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Skyline
