While many of the PlayStation generation may have first experienced the drama of the R34 GT-R V-Spec via Gran Turismo, it was an appearance in The Fast and the Furious franchise that led to an explosion in global popularity for the R34 GT-R. Indeed, Paul Walker drove an R34 GT-R in 2 Fast 2 Furious, enhancing its almost mythical status.

But it was in the ‘real’ world where the R34 GT-R V-Spec would cement its reputation. Described by Evo magazine as 'a warrior-class performer' in its 2007 road test, where a standard R34 GT-R was pitted against the likes of a McLaren F1, Pagani Zonda, Ferrari F40 and Bugatti Veyron, the GT-R’s reputation as a class act remained intact.

The V-Spec (Victory Specification) was offered with a number of upgrades over the standard R34 and came equipped with arguably one of the most technically sophisticated four-wheel-drive/steer chassis in the world: the ATTESA E-TS Pro system. The V-Spec also benefitted from an active limited-slip differential at the rear. Along with its mechanical upgrades, the V-Spec also had firmer suspension and lower ground clearance, as well as a rear carbon fibre air diffuser.

The Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec offered here was first registered in Japan in March 1999 and is presented in gleaming black with a grey interior. It comes with factory fitted radio/cassette, air conditioning and electric windows. Its fabulous six-cylinder engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and it comes with a copy of its export certificate, V5C registration document and its MoT test certificate which expires in November 2023. The car was recommissioned at marque specialist Paul Cheshire Automotive with all fluids changed along with a precautionary cambelt change. 

These early versions of the iconic R34 generation Nissan Skyline GT-R series are coveted by collectors because they are increasingly difficult to find, particularly in standard, unmolested form. This superb V-Spec example remains original throughout and would be a prime example to drive and enjoy.
