Despite the future arrival of the 2008 Skyline GT-R in the states, the Skyline name still remains a luscious forbidden fruit within the US. Most of us can relate their first experience with the word skyline to that miraculous car in Gran Turismo that could easily whip the competition and saving your thumbs hours of pain to beat the game. 10 years after the release date of Gran Turismo and we’re still starved for the car titled “Prince” of Japan.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and Brad from Pennsylvania was able to snag a 2002 R34 GTR VspecII Nur. The limited edition Nur was named after the famous German Nürburgring racetrack, where the Skyline was developed. The Nur model featured an improved RB26DETT based on the N1 racing engine, used by Nismo in motorsports. Only 750 of these bad boys hit the streets, and it’s rumored that only 2 rock the streets of the land of Britney Spears and Donald Trump. How he got a hold of one he wouldn’t say, but he was nice enough to let us snap some pictures of his forbidden fruit.

The VspecII Nur is a gem in stock trim, but like all Skyline owners, they lust for even more power and speed. One glimpse under the hood and you will soon realize this is no ordinary RB26DETT. Shoved under the huge hood is a fully built balanced and blueprinted Tomei motor featuring forged pistons, rods, camshafts, springs, and many many many other tarmac shredding essentials. An Apex’I Power FC standalone ECU keeps the combustion flowing in beautiful rhythm like it should, and a Blitz boost controller reluctantly reduces the amount of force-fed air going into the motor.

Clothing the outside of the car is a collaboration of Nismo aero parts. Starting with the front bumper and working its way to the rear skirts. 19x10” Volk Racing wheels with Yokohama S-03 rubber make this Nur look like chariot fit for a…. well, prince. Behind the wheels are a set of 8-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers with slotted rotors respectively. Tein fully adjustable coilovers give the Skyline an aggressive stance, and simply begs to be taken back to the 13.5 mile Nürburgring.

For most Americans, the thought of owning a Skyline GTR is no more than just a thought. And the thought of blasting down the Nürburgring in a special edition Skyline is something only made a reality in wet dreams. This VspecII Nur is the closest that dream will ever become on American soil.

19s make the car sit too high, looks like a 4X4. I'd've also gotten the Nismo spats in the rear to balance out the rest of the car. Other than that, very nice! Although I'm curious as to why he felt the need for a Tomei crate motor when the N1 motors are capable of handling the kind of power he's probably got. Those things are like $23,000 USD not including freight and taxes!

No R34 is legal for road use here. We can only legally import 1996-1998 R33s and even then we have to go through a bunch of hurdles and it's expensive. Probably registered as a kit car or a 240SX, that's how most of the guys over here do it. Or he may not drive it on the street at all and it's a show car.

Where is the prove it is a Nuer in first place? If the vent is missing , the badge can be bought on ebay! Or the owner put it Nuer, as he might got a N1 block tuned from Tomei?

I don´t think it´s a Nür from the start. I think it´s a regular GT-R, not even a V-spec since it doesn´t have the rear diffuser. Plus, who would change the speedo to a nismo-item when you already have a 300km/h-meter in the car from the start (if it really WAS a Nür it had one of those standard.)

I don't think it is a regular Gtr.

The car has the v-specII pedals and also the darker seats that was in the v-specII and Nur.
It is difficult to see but the rear brakes looks almost as big as the front brakes.
I belive that is also a hint that this car is at least a v-specII.
