Vehicles of various models have always been popular in movies. Apple CarPlay is now standard on both versions of the GT-R and a black interior trim package is newly available. The immense power and capability of the Nissan GT-R® comes with a level of safety, control, and convenience features designed to inspire confidence every moment you're behind the wheel.
Greatly speeds up the tuning process and allows quick changes to powerful features like Adjustable Traction Control, Launch Control and Map Switching. It's Nissan's six-figure halo car, a twin-turbo V6, all-wheel drive, high-tech monster that has somehow remained at the top of its performance game since the end of the Bush Administration.
But the acceleration time is unmatched by lighter and more powerful supercars three times its price and the weight seems to be there for a reason. The good bits like the inline-six engine and rear-wheel drive were retained, but Nissan worked on the styling, hence making the Skyline GT-R's sporting looks even better.
It is a true supercar in every sense and a halo product in Nissan's product portfolio in India. For me, what cements the R34's claim to be a drivers' car is that the weighting and feel of all the major controls - the gearshift, pedals and steering - are in harmony.
The big story was all-wheel drive, known to Nissan as ATTESA E-TS (Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All-Terrain with Electronic Torque Split). In 1969, the Nissan Skyline GT-R was put into production and we follow this journey through the five generations of the Nissan Skyline GT-R, through to the latest incarnation of Nissan GT-R.
To the average enthusiast, however, it might simply look like a modified Nissan GT-R with an aftermarket rear spoiler and a new set of wheels. What's more, the GT-R's paddle shift controls now sit on the steering wheel, where they're easier to reach. The dual-clutch transmission has shed its driveline clatter, shift feel and timing is better, and the GT-R's steering has lightened up at low speeds, and lost the twitch it used to have on center.
Instead, NISMO had purchased 20 used R34 GT-R V-spec platforms. Nissan split the GT-R and Skyline lines off in the Nissan Skyline GT-R 2000s and the former became its own model, while the latter became the cars we know as the Infiniti G-series and later Q50 in America.
