I live in Coventry, West Midlands. Im a BIG skyline fan, so you can imagine how far my jaw dropped when I saw a blue skyline R34 v.spec with the reg T5 GTR in Coventry! Who owns this? I dont recollect hearing that reg mentioned on here at all?

Yes, T5 GTR was used for Nissan's poster/calendar with the woman on the front of the car.

If any magazines are produced in your area, one of the journalists from it was probably making the most of their position.

T1-6 (i think) GTR are, or were, all the Nissan press cars. T3 GTR has been featured regularly and in EVO last month, they damaged it at Le Mans!! It has also changed colour since Autocar first tested it. It was blue then and is red now!! Probably the car that has changed. Sorry for the mind of useless information!!!!!

I think that the registration T3 GTR has been in a few acidents. 1 when it was blue, then the plate was transfered to a red one.

Now that the two geeks have crashed it, the reg will probably be transfered again. Any predictions on the colour of the new car? :)

Perhaps the most worrying fact is that the woman from Nissan who lent them the car just laughed it off - A criminal offence!!!

GT-R ?


Joss,

Are you sure it was a GT-R?

I know there are some R34 GTS going around in yellow, it a factory colour.
And the R34 GTS looks closer to the GT-R than previous S's.


Sorry just spotted yellow is a GT-R colour. :eek: :eek: I've never seen one either.

The Press cars were T 1 GTR to T 7 GTR

I am hoping he can find a pic of all of them together!

He was saying they had to run them in the dark before they were sent out to the press. Now getting paid to drive Skylines sounds like a good job to me :D

Yellow R34?

Guys,
Its a GTS. A friend of mine worked with the owner. He has now left to work somewhere else. He used to work at McLaren! and I know thats its been heavily modified. They have a Smart car there thats capable of 140+ and 0-5 < 5 secs. Christ knows how quick the Skyline is!!

Funny you should mention that Smart...as I'm pretty sure I saw it a while back. I was in one of my friends car, an import Evo6, and driving towards Feltham from Stains and this little Brabus just kept up with us till well over 100mph...we coudn't believe it!! Amazing stuff....
I managed to spot a Brabus twin center exhaust...but then it just took off again!
