Take a ride in Paul Walker's Nissan Skyline GT-R R34!
A Japanese legend hits the Autobahn
Movie cars have always been the stuff of dreams for young and old alike, supporting the heroes as valiant partners who are always ready to help them. However, it is extremely difficult to get hold of the original cars used in films, as they are very rare and therefore sell for astronomical prices.
Creating a replica of the desired vehicle can be a viable solution, especially if you are well skilled in the art of DIY and automotive transformation. AutoTopNL today invites us into a near perfect copy of the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 driven by Brian O'Conner in 2 Fast 2 Furious.
While the original Skyline GT-R R34 has a 2.6-litre inline-six with 280 PS, the model Brian drives in the film has its power increased to 330 PS. The replica here pushes the limits even further, with 450 PS and 500 Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
At high speed on a strip of asphalt on the Autobahn, the Japanese sports car delivers very interesting performance despite having 136,000 km (84,500 mi) on the clock. And what a noise!
