And it’s for sale.
The Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R is forbidden fruit in America, but enthusiasts got a little taste of the vehicle thanks to "The Fast and the Furious" franchise. While Nissan lovers in the US will have to wait until 2024 to get their hands on a R34 Skyline GT-R, one extremely lucky individual in Hong Kong will have the ability to purchase a rare variant of the Japanese sports car. Contempo Concept HK Motors is selling a limited edition Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo Z-Tune for the whopping price of $510,000.
Chassis number 009 is one of just 19 Z-Tune models built in 2003 and is an extremely rare sample of the already unique sports car. Enthusiasts may recall that the R34 Skyline GT-R’s production ceased in 2002, which is why this sports car is something special. The Z-Tune variants came with a bored engine that was increased to 2.8-liters and a stroked crankshaft, as well. Thanks to a larger engine, new forged and fillet-rolled camshafts, IHI turbochargers, forged pistons, new intake plenum and exhaust manifold, the Z-Tune sports cars put out 500 horsepower. All 19 units were built upon the GT-R V-Spec models, but featured aero mods, which include vented front fenders, vents in the hood and more.
While this specific car is too much for the majority of enthusiasts in the US, it’s safe to assume that everyone’s waiting for 2024 to get a R34 GT-R.
