Nissan’S Best JDM Legends Head To The Drag Strip(R34)

One reason why Nissans Stagea is among the most highly valued Japanese domestic cars is because it is a wagon version of the Skyline R34, which was not made by Nissan.

Nissan’S Best JDM

The Nissan Skyline GT-R is the culmination of over ten years worth of knowledge about the motor racing scene, which has solidified the models place on the front lines of the JDM cars.

Like every JDM high-spec car, the Mitsubishi Legnum VR-4 was never sold in the US, and that is part of why you should own one. Gran Turismo, after all, was developed and published by Japanese companies, plus it came out during the 1990s, a time when JDM names were hot both on the automotive scene and in motorsports.

The Mazda RX-7 became the main JDM car as the motor gave a financial advantage for legendary Japanese Mazda RX7 owners.
The 300 ZX was also offered without a turbocharged engine, and in a hardtop, T-top, or convertible body style, like many sports cars at this time.

While the Godzilla has been out of existence for some time, it certainly still has the courage to take on just about every contemporary sports car on the block. The 300ZX is still Nissan after all, but you gotta admit: It is one of the best looking Nissan cars to ever come out.

Some might say that the last-generation S15 is the best of the three S-chassis cars, as this was the last of Nissans storied line-up of S-chassis models, produced through 2002.

The Toyota A80 Supra was also less driven, as Nissans Skyline R34 GT-R could put power into all four wheels, whereas the Supra was only a rear-driver. On the Honda NSX side is Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-Spec, which makes 280 horsepower (209 kW) and 289 pound-feet (392 Nm) of torque, all of which comes from its 2.6-liter turbocharged straight-six.

The Nissan Silvia S15s 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four has 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The highly anticipated Nissan Silvia S16 is said to get the next-generation turbocharged inline-four 2.0-litre engine, expected to produce more than 300bhp.

Today, it is possible that there is more power split between two cars than in any previous drag race story that we have covered. There can be only one winner, and it is Nissans Skyline R34 GT-R, hands down. On the flip side, this video serves as a reality check, both of these JDM legends are priced well above modern-day equivalents, yet, in terms of performance, cannot even hold a candle to the least capable of todays offerings.
