R34 Nismo R-Tune

I thought that a dedicated thread should be started for the R-Tune cars.

If we can find a few, I will start a list of the known cars with colour, R1 engine number, spec etc.

Please fell free to add photographs, tech details, location etc.


I'll start it off with a photograph showing the R1 engine modifications.

As far as i am aware there are 5 official Omori Factory tuned R34 R-Tunes in the UK.

2 x White, 1 x Sparkling Silver, 1 x Millennium Jade and 1 x Black

This has not been confirmed but apparently there were around 75-80 that were created/Tuned by Omori in total and as of today the R1 package is no longer available to purchase. Customers were able to spec as much or less of the Nismo package as they wanted from engine, suspension, exhaust, brakes, wheels and body dressup components depending on how deep their pockets were.

Omori / Nismo spec for the R-Tune Concept Engine (Spec 1) plus factory options for the R Tune - approx 2003.

The R1 gang. LOL!!

So what exactly makes an R1? Is it just the engine package that a customer back in Japan might have opted for?

I saw 3 R1 R34 GTRs at an Ace Cafe meet not so long ago and they were all a bit different to one another. I noted only 2 similarities and they were..

- all 3 were BNR34s (with Nismo wheels)
- all 3 disappeared simultaneously for a mysterious photoshoot

Haha!

Provenance of a R-Tune...

Once a base-model BNR34GTR had passed all the stringent inspections at Omori - appended below is the catalogue of R-Tune parts available to the deep-pocketed client.

Once fitted - the paper provenance of a R-Tune is carried forward in-perpetuity with the following :-

1. Nismo Certificates for all parts fitted
2. Summary Nismo card - detailing all the parts
3. Omori Specification Sheet for the vehicle - with Summary serial numbers of all parts fitted
4. Omori Invoice for the works conducted

Physical provenance is easy.

Hope this clarifies your points above Kadir.

Attachments below of the original (translated) Nismo R-Tune Options List :-

I can see why JPS has started this thread as there is not a great deal of information on the RTune package and starting a thread like this will allow us to all share any related info. Great thread JPS!

Hi Paul! All well here thank you! I trust the same for you and family.. My little one will be 10 weeks old tomorrow!! Not sure where the time has gone but it is flying past and quick! Thanks for sharing the pictures! The 3 of you have different colour R1 decals on your respective bootlids!

Hey Frank! Sadly those attachments are too small. I wonder if Nismo Omori kept records of any BNR34s that didn't pass their inspections and thus refused the customer an R1 upgrade package? Interesting stuff for sure..

Salaam Baisab. Alhamdullilah; all is well! Upset?! No no no..! I think the R1 gang is pretty awesome. Sadly I can't call as my phone was stolen a couple of weeks back whilst at work and I won't be able to sort a replacement for a while yet. So I am having to make do with PMs and emails.. My salaam and best wishes to your family!

From what jps and Frank have posted in Posts 5 and 7 respectively, a standard R34 GTR model would have sufficed at the time such engine packages were available.
