Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 Specifications and Production Information

EV1 - Lightning Yellow

R34 is the reference that is used to refer to the 1999-2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R. The R34 GT-R was the third generation of the RB26DETT powered modern Nissan Skyline GT-R. In 1989 Nissan brought out the R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R that introduced the RB26, and their advanced all wheel drive system called ATTESA. The R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R used the same engine and transmission as the R32, but the chassis was changed, stiffened, and the ATTESA system was improved. For the R34 the engine was still the RB26, but the transmission was swapped for a six speed from Getrag, the V160.

There were 11577 R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R produced 1999-2002.  There has been some wrong information floating around for years from GT-R Magazine. Same information we used. However the 12,175 number was wrong.  GT-R Registry to the rescue with some real numbers pulled from multiple sources. 


These are registrations, and adds up to : 11577 cars

There's a few details missing from the Nismo side; before the Z-tune, there were the R-Tune and S-Tune models. The R-Tune (judging by the "R" of course) was a more race-oriented model, while the S-Tune was the more street-oriented model.
