From 1969 through the early 1970s, at the Japanese Touring Car Race, the Skyline GT-R achieved an unbelievable streak o fifty victores in a row. Sixteen years later, its successful name was passed on to the R32 type, which was developed as a base machine for Group-A race. To take equopped with a 4WD system, which provided unrivaled race performance. 1995 saw the larger body and refined mechanics of hte R33. In 1999, the technology cultivated over a lon gracing history was unsparingly poured into hte 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 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 valve timing and turbo-charging of hte GETRAG 6-speed transmission controlled engine. Further refinemints have veen adoped 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 hte GT-R Nissan's, if not Japan's, new index of quality.
