Get ready to get 2fast and 2furious with a 200MPH+ JDM TIME ATTACK CAR JUN AUTO WORKS GT-R! HA, HA, HA!
Okay, right out front, this car is not street legal in the US, but that never stopped anybody, right? I mean, Vin Diesel is all about the clandestine street racing scene, and he's been in, what, three of those movies, so how tough could it be?
The Skyline model name originally appeared on a Prince luxury sedan in 1957. But we're not too interested in those stodgy, old, upright, bank-president specials, we want something a little more modern, and a lot faster. Though Nissan never officially sold the Skyline GT-R in the land of the free and the home of the debt-enslaved, a good number have made it over while still keeping their JDM freak flags flying.
Here, enjoying some rest and relaxation in the Bahamas, is a '99 R34 V-spec, specially modified by Legendary Supercar builder Jun Auto Works. It's sporting the RB26DETT 2.6-liter, DOHC, 24-valve straight six with a claimed 1,000 ponies at the rear tires, and a 200MPH+ top end. For your damn-near one hundred and twenty grand, you'll get that serial-killer of a motor, plus composite doors, hood, decklid and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler to keep the tires on the tarmac, and the air nice and clean for everybody behind you.
But really, they'll actually be beside you, won't they, as this car screams for some drift action? And as it's a track-only ride, you'll get plenty of opportunity to test its polar inertia, and the coefficient of friction of the combined tires' contact patch, in doing so. AWD and the Getrag 6-speed row-your-own will keep you in charge, no matter how you choose to lay that power down. And speaking of which, there's that sentence in red, about half-way down the page: Car Ran 9:40s in the quatermile! No, they can't spell, but sweet jebus, you want this car.
Now back to that price. $119,990 will buy you a nice house, if you choose to buy where there's 7%+ unemployment. That'd also put you behind the wheel of a brand new Nissan GT-R, with enough left over to cover the penicillin shots for all the STDs you'll get due to the car's carnal attraction. And this GT-R's not even street legal here in the states, so cruising Woodward Boulevard, much less the Dairy Queen over in Mount Pilot, is out of the question, unless you want to play Dukes of Hazard with the local po-po. And one last thing to keep in mind, is that the $119,990 price tag requires PayPal. Yeah, right.
So is $119,990 a Nice Price for the hottest thing to come out of Japan since the wasabi doughnut? Or should we be looking up the Japanese for Crack Pipe about now?
