Godzilla Battle: R34 Skyline vs. R35 GT-R

200HP: Enough for R34 Skyline GT-R?

It’s once again and opportunity for a boosted car face-off because the YouTube channel Officially Gassed – OG is showcasing an up-to-date drag race between what could be classified as two of the most desired Japanese models: R34 Skyline GT-R plus the R35 GT-R.

The esteemed line of Skyline GT-Rs, beginning with the R32 variant, has experienced a progression with the Nissan GT-R R35. Under its stock condition, this car should have an edge when facing off against others. However, the models here have been heavily modified, which gives the older Skyline GT-R R34 more of a fighting chance in comparison to its modern equal.

This year’s 2017 Nissan GT-R R35 features an awe-inspiring 686-horsepower 3.8-liter VR38 twin-turbo V6 as a base build, reinforced by the professional tuning from Knight Racer’s Stage 4.25 Performance Pack. This comprehensive package includes 1,050 cc injectors, upgraded air intakes, a substantial MVT intercooler, as well as an EcuTek custom Godzilla tune. It is estimated to cost roughly £5,000 (or around $6,361 at current exchange rates).


In comparison to the 2001 R34 Skyline GT-R, Alfimar Motors and Mike at SRD Tuning can expect to pay close to £50,000 ($63,6234) for a rebuild that includes a powerful 2.8L RB28 turbocharged inline-six, producing 890 hp. Other modifications include HKS 280 camshafts, a Garrett G40-1150 turbocharger, 1,300cc injectors, a Link G4+ ECU, as well as a Ross Performance R34 cam/crank trigger kit.

Can a higher priced and more powerful build equate to faster quarter-mile runs? In the initial event, which had cars on rollers, the R35 was the clear victor. The operator of the R34 encountered issues as they tried to reach fourth gear in their initial 6-speed manual transmission gearbox. Despite managing to secure a stronger start for the 2nd trial, the R35’s ability to deliver consistent results remained undiminished.

The following best-of-three showdown was a 0 to 60 drag race, which should have been beneficial for the lighter R34. However, the six-speed DCT & launch controlixation of the later GT-R overpowered the R34, sealing its 2-0 conquest.

The tuned Nissan R35 GT-R accomplished the quarter mile sprint in 11.02 seconds at a velocity of 129 mph, moreover, achieving a 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds. By comparison, the R34 Skyline GT-R completed an identical trajectory in 12.15 seconds at 126 miles per hour and taking 3.7 seconds to reach 60 mph.

No matter what the result, these two vehicles have gained iconic reputations within their particular time periods. As for the future, it is possible that the model designation will go from six cylinders to an entirely electric-powered system displaying the features revealed in the Hyper Force concept.
