In this classic Fifth Gear segment, Tiff Needell takes the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 out for a road test. This beast sports a 2.6L RB26DETT twin-turbo I6 engine that produces a monstrous 327hp. Video after the jump.

A heavier stronger six speed Getrag gearbox was used. The head casting and the camshafts were significantly revised, and incompatible with earlier RB26DETTs. The dump pipe and intercooler were also improved. The BNR34 GT-R may well have been the last high performance Nissan to wear the Skyline badge
