Paul Walker undoubtedly helped put the R34 GT-R on the map
in America, but before that Nissan created a version that was worthy of being the star
of any Fast & Furious movie. In 2004 it built the R34 GT-R Nismo Z-Tune to enter into a GT-R “tuner battle." The Z-Tune’s RB26DETT inline-six was heavily modified with a bored-out engine block, new camshafts, a long-stroke crankshaft, upgraded turbo, lightweight forged pistons and more for a total of 493 hp. There was also a sportier suspension, increased chassis welding, new wheels, brakes, and tires. Only 20 models were ever made, which makes this one hell of a rare car.
