You Would Want This Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo Z-Tune So Bad, Even If It Costs $510,000

By  | 

Throughout the decades, a number of limited-edition Nissan Skylines have been produced, including the exceptionally special Nismo 400R but of them all, the R34-generation GT-R Nismo Z-Tune is quite possibly the best.

With a price tag equivalent to $510,000, this 13 year-old Skyline is more expensive than a brand new Lamborghini Aventador SV, but for that price, you get one of the fastest production Skylines ever. So, you’re not really hurting your wallet that much if you think about it.

In the heart of the GT-R Nismo Z-Tune lies a stroked 2.8-liter six-cylinder engine outiftted with IHI turbochargers, forged pistons, forged fillet-rolled camshafts, a custom exhaust manifold, intake plenum and stroked crankshaft. All told, that engine pumps out a very impressive 500 hp and revving to an atmospheric 9,000 rpm.

When combined with an all-wheel drive system, Nissan claimed at the car’s launch it could set a 10.06 second quarter mile time. That’s hypercar territory.

Is $510,000 a lot of money for a Nissan? It sure is but given the vehicle’s rarity and its cult-like following, it could prove quite a profitable investment. Now, would you like to buy one?
