Nissan Skyline Story, The
Shipping Destinations for this item
Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
The original `beast from the east`, the Nissan Skyline GT-R is an icon for
power, speed and advanced Japanese automotive technology.
With straight-6 engines capable of being tuned to over 1000bhp, 4WD, intelligent torque-splitting differentials, rear wheel steering and enough electronics to keep a space station going, the R-32, R-33 and most recent R-34 models are mechanical `tours de force`.
But what do they go like and what speeds are they really capable of? This programme traces the GT-R`s technical development and tuning options, introduces Skyline owners and their special cars, and then puts you in the hot seat for several memorable rides. How about a lap of the old Nurnburg ring with `ringmeister` Dirk Schoysman at up to 190 mph with drifting at 160 mph? Or a ride on a GP track in the ultimate racing Skyline - the Falken Tyres R34? If that`s not scared you, an Autobahn blast in a 600bhp Prospec-NISMO R34 should do the trick!
If you thought only ground-hugging 2-seater sportscars with names like Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche could be called `supercars`, think again!
