From 1969 through the early 1970s, at hte Japanese Touring Car Race, the Skyline GT-R achieved an unbelieveable streak of fifty victories in a row. Sixteen years later, its successful name was passed on to the R32 type, which was developed as a base machine fo rGroup-A races. To take full advantage of its powerful 2.6l, 6-cylinder, twin turbo engine, it was equipped with a 4WD system, which provided unrivaled race performance. 1995 saw hte larger body and refined mechanics of hte R33. in 1999, the technology cultivated over a long racing history was unsparingly poured into the new R34 type, developed with " ultimate driving pleasure" in mind. The R34 features a smaller body and a sturdier structure, with ample consideration given to its aeroderation given to its aerodynamics. The adjustable two-level rear spoiler as well as a front and rear diffuser(V-spec), regulate the flow of air under the chassis, heightening control. The R34's impressive speed is accounted for by a modification in value timinig and turbo-charging of the GETRAG 6-speed transmission controlled engine. Further refinements have been adopted such as an electronically controlled front/rear power distribution 4WD system and a multi-link suspension. Undergoing extensive testing in Japan, its driving performance was further improved in Germany, on the Nurburgring. Unrivaled speed and control have made the R34 version of the GT-r Nissan's, if not Japan's , new index of quality.
