The 1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R is a major car driven by Brian O'Conner in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

History

Turbo-Charged Prelude

After having his Mitsubishi 3000GT impounded by officers in Dallas, Texas, Brian gets a ride from "The Girl" to a used car dealership, where he spots the Skyline. Brian purchases the car in cash with his previous winnings and drives it away. He later gives it a paint job, adds a GT-R badge to the grill, and works underneath the car in a garage.[3]

He uses it to participate in more races, even being seen trying to be raced against by two bikers. Brian then reaches a fork in the highway, the left side going straight to New York while the right exit heads towards Miami, Florida.[3] Brian drives to Miami, where he smiles after seeing some girls and then again as he spots a Toyota Supra and a Mazda RX-7.

2 Fast 2 Furious

Brian uses his Nissan Skyline to participate in the street race hosted by Tej Parker. He races against the likes of his friend Suki, and opponents Slap Jack and Orange Julius. Slap Jack's 1993 Toyota Supra competes against the Skyline successfully until he makes too wide a turn, allowing Brian to take the lead.[2]

The Skyline successfully makes the bridge jump and wins the race, but everyone is forced to flee when the cops show up. Brian is able escape most of them, but Agent Markham fires an ESD harpoon at the Skyline, shutting it down. The car is impounded following Brian's arrest by the U.S. Customs agent.[2]

Specifications

The Nissan Skyline's produced for the film were all R34s (the model itself was introduced back in 1998). The R34 in the films were powered by a RB26DETT 2.6-liter, DOHC, 24-valve straight six sitting longitudinally in the engine bay that's force fed by twin turbos and officially rated at 280 hp. The R34's engine feeds a six-speed Getrag gearbox that in turn sends power to the ATTESA all-wheel-drive system, which electronically varies the torque split.[4][1]

Super HICAS four-wheel steering is also aboard and includes an electronic feedback control system to ensure precise wheel positioning under extreme circumstances. But the big change for the R34 from previous Skylines was a stiffened body shell and fresh aerodynamic design. This car has carbon-fiber under-car diffusers and a new rear wing.[1]

The Skyline R34's suspension is tight. According to sportcompacweb.com, it would take "a rear-quarter" from another vehicle for R34's rear end to lose control. The level of traction in the R34 makes "burnouts" in the vehicle isn't a "Caterpillar D9". The production crew responsible for the R34's removed the front driveshaft from the vehicle and disabled the Skyline's four-wheel steering "so it could misbehave like a regular car".[1]

Other features of the R34 include a C-West Body kit a blue long striped vinyl, HRE rims and a C-West spoiler wing. Brian's Nissan Skyline GT-R is equipped with 2.6 liter RB26DETT Twin turbocharger and the engine can push around 330HP (stock).
