Nissan Skyline 10 (R34) Sedan (1998-2001)
Nissan Skyline 10 Sedan (code R34) is a high-end mid-size sports sedan in production from 1998 to 2001. It was available with a range of inline-6 (RB) engines that displaced 2.0 to 2.5 liters.
The R34 Skyline is today one of the most loved cars to have worn the Nissan badge. Undoubtedly, the car that everyone wants is the R34 GTR. Still, the R34 sedan is handsome in its own right: Elegant yet sporty, it was the pinnacle of Japanese industrial design.
Moreover, the car came with an optional RB25DET turbocharged 2.5-liter I6 engine. While it was not the RB26DETT found in the GTR, it was still a venerable unit that has earned a lot of love.
The R34 uses double-wishbone + multi-link suspension setup for improved handling.
