Nissan Skyline GTRs are often considered the most coveted 90s JDM cars. And with many sales well into the 6 figure range, it seems that the market agrees with that as well. Today we discuss the history of the R34 Skyline GTR and how it got to the point of selling for over $359,000 US Dollars.

  • Thanks to Paul Walker and the fast and furious none car guys idiot fans are the reason why GTR are so expensive. Anyways, if you can't afford R34 , you can get R33 for around 30k or less and mod it as it looks kinda similar to R34 but waaaay cheaper

  • Just buy the's better in every measurable way...and a third of the price. The R34 is just is so expensive because of the 90's and early 2000s car culture and because americans just love throwing money, and also because most of them ended up getting's just not worth the hype in my opinion...waaaaay better cars for 100-300k. I can say the same thing about the e46 M3, e39 M5 and the mk4 Supra...hype, hype, hype...they might be a little special...but there's no way they are super car levels of special. 300k for a 20+ year old I'll just have a brand new Ferrari...less headaches and a lot more reliable.

Definately not unattainable speeds by no means as to you can buy off lot CARS here in UNITED STATES that makes skyline look SILLLLLLLY but thank you Japan for Sushi 👙

  • Contrary to what he said the Nissan gtr was available in Australia , last time I looked Australia is a western country , half of the racing videos shown were from the Bathurst 1000 endurance race in the 90s in Australia where it dominated , thats were it got its Godzilla nickname , here in Australia , as it was the monster that came to Australia and destroyed all the competition , winning by a long way the Bathurst 1000 in 1991 and 1992 and many shorter races here Mark Skaife and Jim Richards developed the car even more ,they cracked the first engine blocks getting more power out of it and Mismo had to make new alluminium blocks , they had to make the car more reliable for the 1000 endurance race , Mismo were charging ridiculous money for their parts so many parts were manufactured and modified here from local nissan dealers Sales to other private racing teams were a poor because the car was just to expensive to race without factory sponsorship Eventually the rules were changed and the Skyline and the Mazda RX 7 could not race at Bathurst because they were classed as sports cars and the race was for sedans only

  • This is the most cap shit, you can legit buy a second hand one imported from japan to Canada for 40k and it’s not modded of anything but you can do that yourself, I’m saying this because my friend bought one from an online dealer that imports it to Canada and even if you put 100k on top it’s still better than 350k, if you pay that ur a either a sucker, or u don’t know shit about cars

    • you can import a 25+ year old skyline to the u.s. as it's exempt from federal standards but needs to comply with whatever the state your in says it needs, any newer than that and it needs to comply with federal standards.
