Straight Outta Japan: 600 HP Midnight Purple GTR

As clichΓ© a title this is, I thought it was appropriate for one of Japan’s finest automotive creation, the R34 GTR. This pristine Midnight Purple example is one of the latest offering that’s up for grabs through Global Auto, and this thing is packing some heat! Not only is the Midnight Purple version limited to only 300 units, this particular car is pushing 600+HP courtesy of HKS/Tomei internals and a Trust T78-29D snail…of course, with the built motor, this monster can easily achieve higher power potential through the use of a larger turbine.

But of course, Greddy/Trust gauges are essential for a setup like this.

I gotta say, there are very few cars that can surpass the presence of 560 HP of R34 goodness. And Global Auto of Japan always have a few pristine samples up for grabs!

Can’t really tell from the photo, but this RB26 is an HKS masterpiece with forged internals and twin GT2530 turbines among other go-fast goodies.
