Overview

The 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) is a Japanese sports car in the Ultimate Driving Universe which was produced from 1989 to 2002. It can be bought for $143,000, and was replaced with its predecessor in the Racing Update in 2018, However it made a reappearance in the Vehicle Overhaul update. It is known as the 1999 Gojira N5 Dawnbreaker V-S in-game.

Description

This car is the first public vehicle created by Hydrolock and the first fully-released Japanese model in the UDU, and for a while it was the only Japanese vehicle in the game before the mesh update added cars such as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86). The Skyline is also the second vehicle capable of going over 120 MPH (193 KM/H).

Before the mesh update, the Skyline was the only sports car with a rear seat (boosting the total seats to 5), despite being a coupe. However, you may need to jump through the roof to access the rear seat. Therefore, the Skyline once was able to carry 5 people, which was unique among other sports cars, but the mesh update made it a 2-seat model.

In real life, the car is powered by the Nissan's iconic RB26DETT engine, a twin-turbocharged 2.6L inline-6 engine that was restricted to 280 PS, or 276 hp, but unrestricted was capable of reaching over 300 bhp.

  • This vehicle was the only Japanese model that had a brick version.

  • The spoiler for the Skyline R34 in real life can be "manually" adjusted (not in-game)
