The 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II is an AWD sports car that appears in all main titles of the Forza series.

The V-Spec II is part of the GF-BNR34[1] (abbreviated as R34) series, the fifth and final generation of the Skyline GT-R. As the R34 was developed during Nissan's financial crisis in the late 1990s, it features less changes compared to the transition from the R32 to the R33.

The R34 was first produced in 1999 to replace the R33 and ceased production in 2002. The V-Spec II was released in 2000 as a track-focused model.

Special VariantsEdit

DescriptionEdit

As the penultimate edition of the “R34” series Skyline GT-R, and in fact, as one of the last of the traditionally inline-six powered Skylines, the V-Spec II is destined to be a collectible. Let’s hope that this doesn’t mean that existing models are parked in garages and never driven, because driving is exactly what Nissan intended this GT-R to do. The V-Spec II (the “V” stands for “victory,” by the way) comes with all of the goodies that the original V-Spec had, but it’s even harder-edged thanks to increased stiffness and lighter weight (primarily due to a special carbon fiber hood, spotted at a distance by the small NACA duct). The RB26DETT engine will be familiar to Skyline fans, but only the very fanatical will know offhand that the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system is actually the “Pro” version, with an active limited-slip differential that splits torque laterally if necessary. Externally, small “V-Spec II” badges and a large “bi-plane” rear wing differentiate this Skyline from lesser models. With well over 300 horsepower, the GT-R is not only quick, it’s very much so—particularly in poor traction situations where the all-wheel drive system comes into the fore.

CharacteristicsEdit

The R34 has a shorter wheelbase and smaller front overhangs than the R33 but also slightly more weight up front. Its curb weight is 3395 lb (1540 kg) in Forza Motorsport and Forza Motorsport 2, which was changed to 3417 lb (1550 kg) in all newer titles, making it the heaviest model of the Skyline GT-R. In comparison with the R33, aerodynamics were further improved for the R34 through a front undertray and rear diffuser that increase downforce.

The RB26DETT engine, now fitted with more durable ball bearing ceramic turbochargers, delivers 327 hp (332 PS; 244 kW) and 293 ft·lb (397 Nm) of torque with a boost pressure of 11.4 psi (0.78 bar), which make the R34 more powerful than its predecessors. The R34 also switched to a six-speed manual transmission that allows for closer gearing.[3]

The R34 is equipped with a 5.8" LCD screen at the centre of the dashboard that displays live readings of engine and vehicle statistics including turbocharger pressure and various temperature readings.[4]
