Nissan's Greatest JDM Legends Hit the Drag Strip

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.

The 300ZX is still Nissan in the end, but you gotta admit: It is one of the best looking Nissan cars that was ever built.

Its very existence here in America -- a market that never sold any versions of the Skyline GT-R -- speaks volumes

about the 400Rs worldwide reputation as one of Japans most venerated sports cars of its time.

The R32 and R34 Skylines, R35 GT-R, and Silvia all fought each other out at Mission Raceway Park to see which was the best of Nissans storied sports cars.

While neither car could hold its own against the current crop, when it came to speed

Nissans R34 Skyline GT-R actually managed to become the second fastest-accelerating car

in terms of the originals time-on-the-track chart...behind Subarus wagon.

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 on its turbocharged 2.6-liter straight-six.
