I thought I’d balance the Honda presence on the site this month with a bit of Nissan goodness. If you followed my Nagoya Exciting Car Showdown coverage you may remember seeing this particular 4-Door ER34 Skyline that I spotted in the parking lot. The owner was obviously disappointed that Autech never made an official 4-door version of the R34 GT-R, like they did for the BCNR33 to celebrate the Skyline’s 40th Anniversary
Not to worry however, he seems to have done quite an impressive job himself to his car, starting with dropping in a stock RB26 in place of the RB25 the 4-door GT-t came with.
The conversion continues in the interior with an airbag-equipped and lather clad version of the BNR34’s steering wheel. The white instrumentation is courtesy of Nismo. Even the pedals are borrowed from a kouki BNR34 that came with metal pedal covers.
Seeing a transplanted MFD screen and stock DVD navigation module really emphasizes how seriously the conversion has been taken. That must be a wiring nightmare to get in there! Notice the GT-R shifter and GT-R transmission tunnel trim.
M-spec front seats, with the rest of the interior trimmed in exactly the same black leather and red stitching combination.
The exterior wears GT-R xenon headlights, front bumper and diffuser not to mention the slightly wider front aluminum fenders. Nismo side skirts have been adapted as well as front and rear fender trims for a Z-tune look.
On top of the BNR34 rear spoiler an M-spec badge has also been thrown on. I’m pretty sure if Autech ever created a 4-door GT-R it would have looked very similar to this!
Stock GT-R 18-inch wheels are the final touch. The GT-R logos on the center caps have been replaced with custom made Autech emblems.
A truly well executed conversion! What do you guys think?
