Jesus you suck at the images.

The car has insane tuning potiential capable of seeing over 1000 hp, is butt ugly, has more computers than my roommates room, and is a Nissan.

Definately MJ uncool
PAULIE_D
I can't understand why anyone would think that this car is "uncool."

Definitely frozen.
DakianDelomast
Paulie there is a definative difference between what is cool and what is good. I love the Skyline GT-R and I think it is one of the best Japanese cars in the world. Does that mean that it's cool? HELL NO!
PAULIE_D
Well, for me at least I don't limit the definition of "cool" to looking cool.

The Skyline GT-R is not particularly beautiful nor is it ugly. But the soul of the beast is something to be reckoned with.

It's like when you meet a girl who is semi-attractive but her personality is amazing. In that sense, she then appears to be more attractive.

Make sense ?
DakianDelomast
Honestly of the AWD GT-Rs the only one that is remotely cool is the R32.
Mr b00st
R34 is definetely not cool. Just, despite the technical elegance and advancement... it's not "cool" at all... very geeky tedious car.

I just can't win can I! Dakian, ok you hate me fair enough. But you get pissed when I post images and pissed when I don't. I don't know hot to use iUpload you see.

I think it's borderline. It's ass ugly but it sure has a shitload of power and tuning capabilities but the interior's way to cheap for a car that price and it's just not something i'd buy. It's basically IMO one hell of a rice car. I voted Uncool.

Iupload is perfectly easy to use and NO ONE else has trouble with it.
BlackJack
yea, what dakian said. it's soooo easy to use and i bet a 7 year old can simply use it too. but not you, mellender. you cant use it because 'you dont know how to use iupload'? wtf, should we give you a manual on it?

Stone Cold! Another of my favourite cars ever, I don't think that it looks insanely beautiful and in stock format, theres a lot that can beat it, but I don't know it has a certain aura about it.

The Skyline is one of the ultimate cars in the world. My friend has a R32, 2 nights ago he was driving me home from football practice when were were at a stoplight. A 575 Maranello came right beside us it was about 7 at night. We had ourselfs a street race he totally smoked the 575 Maranello of the line and kept through. His car has about 550HP from the upgrated ecu and the magnaflow exhaust amd new intake manifold. In conclusion i would rather have myself pay $22 000 on a R32 than on any other car in the world!!!!!



I still :heart: THE MARANELLO!!!!
Black RSX
Hmmm looks like the votes are calling for this to be moved up to Ice Cold.... where is SHOULD BE!!!

Uncool. It's loved by ricers and it's too well known... well, anyone get what I mean?

Not saying it's not a good car, but it's too... I dunno. laugh.gif

Yea i was talking about the R32 Gtr.

Stock Skyline R34 makes 276bhp ( I am aware that you were talking about the GT-R, just thought I'd add this fact.)

I know, relly old thread. But i would like to add some info to this thread.
The car is according to the the Japanees papers 280 BHP.
These figures are not the real figures.
They have made test to this (you can read about them on gtr.co.uk) and its 327 all stock Nissan Skyline R34 GTR.

To tell this car is ugly, then u dont know what you are taling about. The lines of this car is so beauterful, a picture might tell 1000 words, but if you see this car IRL, it's amazing.

And driving this car, STOCK!!, its SICK.
Its like a 1700KG GoCart.
It might "only" be 327hp original, but you only have to add bigger exhaust, BC with 1,15 boost, and wooillaa you got 400hp outh of this car. Japanees goverment had to forbid cars to have over 280hp, thats why its choked down to "280hp". Rs4, M3, supra. Aint nothing comapred to this.

I could write a book about this car here, right now.
But once you have seen it IRL, and driven it, then you will change your mind.

Off course i like it, i own it.

FROZEEEN

Awesome car, cool, but nto frozen for me. My favorite will always be the R33, it just always looked cooler to me...that and I'd get an NSX over it every single time.
