CRASH: Why the R34 Nissan GTR is still a drivers car

Only a few minutes before this crash, I’d left my RingTaxi office to go and look at a gorgeous Nissan R34 Skyline GTR V-spec parked by the Devil’s Diner.

There’s a myth that the Nissan GTR is an easy car to drive fast. this video shows otherwise:

Yes, the AWD system makes it easier to put the vast amounts of power to the ground. But it certainly doesn’t make it easy.

The GTR isn’t a rally car. It’s not full-time 4WD, it’s a RWD sportscar with assistance from the front axle.

Thankfully both driver and passenger were A-OK after the incident.

Thanks to nordschleife96 for the video!
