?? WHy does this site have the smartest people on the planet. I wasn't even making an in depth comparison to the R35. Where exactly did i demean the R35? I was addressing "questions" (basic 101 BS) in this thread. Or are you just trying to distract away from the points i just made?
And the R34 and even R32 are still faster than the R35, and i think that includes the ztune in general as well. It'll definitely never come close to the ztunes drag times. And the ztune is nowhere near the fastest R34.
2nd, it's double its price because it's a collectible; an official statement of what the R34 (R32-R34 really) actually are, whether morans in the stupid ****in west like it or not. You can turn your car into Nismo and get it the full ztune package/kit for much less without getting one of the 17 actual ztunes ever made (AFAIR they never got a hold of enough R34s that were up to their mint standards to make the 20 they wanted). But gettin one of the factory-made-fresh ztunes of the very rare and few that were made will cost you.
3rd, i have no ****in idea why you mention Sugo (or anything, really). It's an older time (the ztune had an older time on tsukuba that was annihilated much worse than the Sugo by the GTR one as well), and I've not seen it, but i'm willing to bet that something is missing and its embellished. .5 seconds is big on tsukuba, and the ztune beat it by almost a second.
The "problem" with the R35 is that its untouchable for the most part, so far any tinkering with its drivetrain has not done a whole lot for it or even made it slower outside of drag. And of course theres no reason to focus on dragging a 3800lb AWD supercar, it's meant for circuit racing. But you're right, its a more current, interesting technological feat (or more like a slap in the face) in being a nearly _4000_lb AWD car with a simple V6 that kills cars that weight lighter with fancy pants v10s+, cost tons more including to manufacture, etc.
PS. the ****in picture of the black car was uploaded elsewhere where it was at the least better suited. It's not a ztune its an R34 GTR V-Spec II stock body, and the only single difference in body between the V-Spec II and a standard GTR is the hood has a NACA duct in it. So put it up on the regular R34 GTR page too since it belongs there more than here.
