However, diehard fans of the R34 series know that just one of them was born to rule them all. That was the Nismo Z-Tune – an incredibly special edition devised for Nismo’s then anniversary and based on used R34 GT-R V Spec units! It featured an integral strip-and-rebuild hand manufacturing process, exclusive Z-Tune Silver paint, as well as the Z1 or Z2 RB28DETT 2.8-liter turbo engine that was good for no less than 493 horsepower.
Naturally, the 19 completed cars became absolute OEM hoots that are beloved by JDM fans even today. One of them, Jon Pumfrey, the virtual artist behind the DomesticMango label (aka dm_jon on social media), shows us that he is a sensible JDM-loving artist at his core and decided to sensibly reimagine the Z-Tune.
The digital R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo Z-Tune now enjoys a spectacular Millenium Jade lifestyle, and it also lurks across the virtual shadows in a casually rainy setting. Nothing wrong with that, although we can all imagine that if this setup was real the driver would probably have a few grip issues when trying to properly tame all those ponies!
