2. Nissan Skyline GT-R
Another iconic car of the 90s. Nissan Skyline GT-R R32, R33 and R34 are the third, fourth and fifth generations of Nissan Skyline GT-R which are produced from year 1989 to 2002. The second generation of Nissan Skyline was unsuccessful which led to the cancellation of the series but Nissan revived the GT-R in 1989 through the R32 with numerous improvements which are highly acclaimed by critics. The R32 came up with 2.6 L all wheel drive twin turbo straight six engine that can generate 276 horsepower and 266 lb ft of torque. In 1995, the R33 was introduced as the successor of R32 which featured the same turbochargers and the same specification for the manual gearbox, although the syncros were stronger. The fifth and the last generation that carries the Nissan Skyline badge is the R34 which features a much modern upgrades including the 5.8″ LCD multifunction display on the center of the dashboard and more. The R35 is also powered by the same 2.6 L Twin turbo straight six engine which produced the same figure and output. Although they said that the output is only 276 hp, some tests proved that the factory output of Nissan Skyline GT-R can reach up to 325 horsepower.
