Nissan Skyline R34 by SP Engineering


When it comes to tuner houses, SP Engineering isn't anywhere near the term, new. They are well known across the world, especially by the aftermaket fans, for their imaculate builds. Even though, the Skyline R34 has some time since it's been present, it still plays a major part in tuning scene and it seems that SP Engineering knows how to value this Japanese gem.

I'm going to keep the modification list short, because just the engine mods are insane and are capable to develop 1000WHP. 

Outside there's a Top Secret front bumper with carbon fiber splitter, FRP aero hood, Do-Luck side skirts, ARC rear diffuser and rear wing.

The power comes from a hybrid V6 unit, that develops 420HP. The power is being put down throught the rear wheels, by the help of a 6-speed sequential gearbox.
