The fifth generation Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) was a legendary sports car in its own right. The last of the Skyline GT-Rs, the R34 had been the subject of various tuning or exterior modification projects. Featured here is an R34 Skyline GT-R spectacularly transformed into a super attractive machine -- via digital manipulation -- by a graphic artist named Al Yasid. Let’s take a closer look.
A Skyline GT-R R34 Of The Future
This digital creation might not look like an R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R upon first glance. After all, it looks futuristic and can be mistaken for a widebody conversion concept from the Japanese carmaker. It appears similar to the latest update of the current Godzilla. But upon closer inspection, this graphic rendering is really the R34 Skyline GT-R, which was released more than 20 years.
Wrapped in burnt orange exterior finish, this Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R was rendered to its breathtaking form by Al Yasid, who posted it on his Instagram account. Visibly wider than a typical R34, this GT-R has been lowered to sit close to the ground. It features interesting lighting details, including headlights that appeared to have been shut down.
Spectacular Wide Body Render
It’s pretty amazing how Al Yasid transformed this R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R into a sleeker and more sensuous sports car. He achieved this by widening the R34 through attaching wide body kits. The body kit here includes body-colored fenders that house extended wheels, thereby making it appear that the R34 is hugging the ground.
Aside from the large fenders, this Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R rendering features a massive front lip spoiler and other add-ons possibly made of carbon fiber. Glaring details of this rendering include its massive twin rear spoilers mounted up high on the rear deck. These downforce-generating parts are separated by two splitter-like glass details.
Better Than The GT-R50?
It’s too bad that this R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R rendering isn't the real thing. Nonetheless, with the right tools and resources, it can be brought to the real world. But for now, Nissan wouldn’t be bothered with this as it boasts an equally gorgeous real-world version of the Godzilla – the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign.
