Touge Runner || Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec

By | Featured | Comments

Okay boys and girls, admittedly we’ve been teasing you all with Skylines over the past couple of months: we’ve showcased some pretty amazing R33′s with some fairly serious modifications but, for me at least, this is the big one.

Not to take away anything from those guys, their cars are certainly both awesome, be sure to check those builds out on the site too, but this time we’re featuring a car from a Japanese native. The jdm scene after all is not just the cars but the influence and style from Japan that goes along with it, so this build is perhaps the most indicative of all as to what jdm really is. Read More

Edgar Degas also said “art is not what you see it’s what you make others see.”

Growing up Chris was surrounded by surpas he had Three uncles that owned Supras including two MKII Celica/Supras and on MKIII Supra.
