JDM CarP0rn: Esprit Tuned R34 GTR

One of the best things about a GTR, especially the R34, is its endless capabilities and its responsiveness to aftermarket parts and tuning. In short, you never really know its power levels by just looking at the car. Take this BB R34 for example, from the outside it’s relatively subtle but under the bonnet, it’s pushing over 700HP thanks to an Esprit tuned 2.7L twin GT-RS power plant!

Sonic Boom SW20

This Sonic Boom TCP SW20 is one of the most well kept examples I’ve probably ever seen. I love that the car is enhanced with just a few simple, but very effective and classy mods.

Clean Cut: R34 GTR x Work S1R

Here’s another gorgeous GTR up for grabs in Japan for about $40,000. It’s definitely a steep price for a car that’s over ten years old but I think you get what you pay for with this finely tuned machine. Like most tuned GTRs from Japan, this thing is rocking nothing but quality parts. One quick look at the photos and you can spot several notable exterior pieces in the Work Meister S1Rs sized 18×10 +/-5 front and rear, AP Racing BBKs, and Z-Tune fenders and hood. And where the eyes can’t see, this beast is also tuned by the famous Phoenix’s Power via a HKS F-Con V Pro, so you know this thing can perform!
