Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R Overview

The Nissan Skyline R34 GT R is a Japanese based sports car. Initially, the car was nicknamed “Godzilla” by the motoring company called “Wheels”. The vehicle participated in a Car Touring championship and had four consecutive wins. The flagship performance showcased many new technologies. The advanced technologies included the EWD-4TS format along with the four wheeled steering. The car continues to be cheap unlike its other competitors in the market. Nowadays the vehicle is renowned mainly for racing imports and time attack. This car was replaced eventually by an independent vehicle that was not sold as a skyline. Even though the car was never manufactured anywhere outside Japan, its only market was in Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia. The cars of the same series were renamed during the television show Top Gear and were an addition to the supercar versions.

History

Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R, Photo #2 The car was the brainchild of Prince automobile company. The company built and sold successfully the entire sedan series. After this, the company merged with Nissan-Datsun. The Japanese makers deliberately named it Italian. The immediate next step was the four door PGC10 2000GTR. It had 33 wins, over a period of one and a half years. Mazda Savanna RX-3 ended its long winning streak. Its rear wheel drive is chiefly responsible for its increasing popularity while the other contemporary car manufacturing companies were more keen on front wheel drive vehicles. Other features contained subtle variations that enhanced performances.

Engine

The standard model is mainly attributed to its durability. It proved the need for maintenance under racing conditions. Its thick cylinder walls and water cooling techniques has enhanced the water flow. Advanced oil and water pumping methods make lubrication easier under racing conditions.

Engine operation

The turbo chargers were of a ceramic design that ensured faster operation mainly because of the exhaust wheel. The all wheel drive system provided power to all the four wheels through electronic forms and the entire procedure was commonly referred to as ETS system by Nissan itself. The technique makes use of two sensors and was positioned beneath the console at the centre that fed the inputs to ECU both longitudinally and laterally. The ECU actually controlled power by delivering restricted power to the front wheels through an electronically devised converter that splits the net torque. Initially the pro model was an extra option for the customers. R33GTR was standardised eventually over the period of years.

Motorsport

The dominant racetrack history of the vehicle initially resulted in its eventual introduction in the sporting world. Its success meant the end of Group A touring cars. The successful racing formula was scalped out much because of this particular vehicle from Nissan. The motor racing event was highly formidable especially the 1000Km race at the Panorama circuit.
