The single-turbo R32 and R33 Nissan Skyline models are some of the most loved Japanese import vehicles - and with good reason. The late 'Lines offer terrific ruggedness, a good measure of straight-line speed and handling that can be, well, entertaining. The RB-series turbomotors are also incredibly responsive to power-up mods, making them a popular choice amongst enthusiasts.In Australia at present, however, you don't find many R34 model Skylines lining the streets - only a few GT-Rs and a sprinkling of single turbo and atmo versions. If our road test 1999 Skyline 25GTt (supplied by Melbourne's Sports and Luxury Cars) is anything to go by, though, we reckon it'll only be a matter of time before they really start to catch on. The R34 is not a huge progression over the R33 - it offers similar performance, feel and practicality - but it does offer a few advantages or, at least, differences..The biggest difference of the R34 is styling - both inside and out.While the '33 interior is decidedly bland, the 34's indoors is a whole lot more interesting. The dashboard is creatively sculpted and has sprouted three central gauges that let you view Boost pressure, battery voltage and oil temperature. Bulging below this is the operating area for the digital climate control (note that the R34 uses a rotary temperature control that is a whole lot easier to operate than the up/down buttons found in earlier models). Aside from climate control, the R34 also offers power windows and mirrors, central locking and a reasonable speaker system. The seats offer decent lateral support and are quite comfortable overall, but are lacking a little bit of lumbar supportOur test vehicle was also equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission that showed a definite advantage over previous auto models - tiptronic-style gear selection. Gears can be manually engaged by bumping the gear lever (forward for upchanges, back for downchanges) or via a pair of up/downchange buttons on the steering wheel; the latter beingquite awkward to use and a bit of a gimmick.
Visually, the R34 is much more distinctive than the '33 and is widely regarded as the better looker. It does look a little narrow-gutted and awkward from some angles, however - with the standard ride height at least. Starting at the nose, the R34 is relatively upright but scores points for its Xenon low-beam headlights and aggressive front spoiler with side exits (the exits on the passenger's side are to let warmed air escape from behind the air-to-air Intercooler that's mounted within the guard). From the front of the car extend side skirts, while Nissan's traditional 'stove top' taillights characterize the rear. As you can see, the R34 also flaunts a rear wing that's quite large for a non GT-R Skyline. Oh, and note that 17-inch rims come as standard on R34 turbos - the ones fitted to this vehicle are aftermarket jobs.
The powerplant is the RB25DET as introduced in the R33 GTS25T. In R34 form, however, the engine is upgraded to more environmentally friendly 'NEO' specs. The NEO RB25DET also features a hot-wire airflow meter, 9.0:1 static compression, air-to-air Intercooler, ceramic turbine roller-bearing turbocharger, blow-off valve and variable inlet cam timing. With manifold Boost pressure of around 60 - 70 kPa (as shown on the factory Boost gauge) the R34 25GTt is listed at 206kW at 6400 and 343Nm at 3200 rpm. The R34 25GTt scores its extra power over previous models thanks to a larger turbo (providing a healthier amount of Boost), better Intercooler, an improved Exhaust system and engine management updates.
Teamed with the auto trans in our test car, the 25GTt's engine offers typical turbo-like throttle response (dull in other words) and the shooting match sounds a little busy and unrefined at low speeds - the torque converter flares under load and the turbo whizzes and whooshes to get you up to the speed limit. The R34 is not a particularly quiet vehicle. Get it up on Boost, however, and the car hauls reasonably well to its 7000 rpm cut-out; our automatic trans test car accelerated from a standing start to 100 km/h in a hand-timed mid-to-high 7-seconds (with two people on board). Note that, despite being more compact than its predecessor, the R34 25GTt auto weighs some 1430kg - around 50kg heavier than the R33!
