How Much Better Is The Nissan GT-R Than The R34 Skyline?

Comparison / Comments

Depends what you mean by "better."

It will be a few more years (nine to be exact), before buyers can legally import the R34 Skyline into the US, so this video of Auto Express thrashing one around a circuit in order to see just how far ahead the Nisan GT-R R35 has come, won't be easy to watch. But it will be fun, as both cars are legends in their lifetimes, and two of the most desirable cars to drive and own. Steve Sutcliffe is also using the 45th Anniversary Edition GT-R.

That means it comes finished in a special gold paint called Silica Brass. However, power output remains at 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque, which is just fine. So how much difference does 15 years of technological advancements make?
