7. R34 Nissan Skyline
It’s hard to peg where the Nissan Skyline’s popularity stems from. Likely a result of the Playstation generation who had the opportunity to drive a number of realistic cars in Gran Turismo, the Skyline was one of the fastest cars in the game. And that out-of-reach car that could spank anything was known by two names – the R34 and Godzilla for the top-trim GT-R models. The R34 was in production between 1998 and 2002 and was known for the performance of the GT-R model.
Nissan paired an advanced all-wheel drive system with a twin-turbo six-cylinder engine in order to beat rival cars like the Toyota Supra and Mazda RX-7. To many, when you think Skyline, its the R34 model that springs to mind, and that’s the way it should be.
