Origins And HistoryEdit
The Nissan Skyline R34 GTR, or just Nissan Skyline, was first produced by the Japanese and is based on the Nissan Skyline range. The first GT-Rs' were produced from 1969-1977. After a 16 year hiatus since the KPGC110 in 1972, the GT-R name was revived in 1989 with the Skyline R32. This car was nicknamed "Godzilla" by the Australian motoring publication "Wheels" in its July 1989 edition, a name that sticks to this day. The R32 GT-R surprisingly dominated the motorsport in Japan, winning a 29 straight victories out of 29 races. The GT-R proceeded to win the JTC Group A series championship 4 years in a row, and also had success in the Austrailan Touring Car Championship winning from 1990–1992, until the GT-R was outlawed in 1993. The Skyline GT-R (R33) was also the first production car to lap the legendary Nurburing in under eight minutes. The GT-R has been revived through the 80s and 90s more than four times. Many versions of different upgraded GT-Rs have also been released by the company Nismo, or Nissan Motorsports. The newest GT-R in the line is the 2009 Nissan GT-R. Nissan decided to drop the name of "Skyline" in the newest one. The Nissan Skyline still remains a favorite to this day.
