The 2002 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R is a major car driven by Brian O'Conner in Fast & Furious.


Fast & Furious

Prior to going undercover, Brian uses the FBI database to acquire a Bayside Blue 2002 Skyline R34 GT-R and a Pearl White Skyline R34 GT-R in order to use it in a street race. He uses parts from the white Skyline as well as from a red 2007 Nissan GT-R and transplants them into the blue. He uses the Skyline in the race against Dominic Toretto to win the favor of Arturo Braga.[3]

Brian used the Skyline to smuggle drugs under the border from Mexico. It was destroyed when the NOS tank in Dominic's Chevrolet Chevelle SS exploded, setting both cars on fire. The destruction of both vehicles allowed Dominic and Brian to escape Fenix Calderon and Braga's men.[3]


The 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 used in the film were built on the frames of 1998 to 2001 Skyline GT-T models, which used similar body shells to the R34 GT-R. GT-T were rear-wheel drive and typically not aspirated. Using GT-T models allowed Dennis McCarthy's team to avoid the problem of removing the front driveshafts from the vehicles as they would with an R34 GT-R.[2]

As a result, stunt drivers were allowed to perform longstanding burnout sequences in street races for the film. The R34 GT-R build for the film did not use turbochargers or all-wheel drive. Six Skylines were bought to use for the production of the film. Fiberglass replica shells of the R34 were mounted onto dune-buggy chassis for up-close and off-road sequences. Of the six genuine Skylines used, three of them were sold as parts cars, two were destroyed and one was saved for potential sequels.[2]
