Fanhome’s Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) is realistically designed down to the smallest detail. Constructed with die-cast metal and ABS plastic components, the model features a screen accurate exterior with opening doors, hood, and trunk panels and LED effects for the headlights, brake lights, and dashboard as well as blue-tinted LEDs for the cabin light and ground effects. A working horn and revving engine sound effects enhance the realism. An included remote control operates the car’s functions wirelessly.
The Fanhome Skyline GT-R (R34) interior is also accurately depicted with an OMP Racing bucket seat in the driver’s position, bottles of nitrous oxide on the passenger side, and a realistic dash and shifter. The trunk opens to reveal the Skyline’s impressive sound system. Under the hood lies an exact reproduction of the RB26DETT 2.6-liter DOCH 24-valve straight-six rated at a blistering 310hp, installed longitudinally in the engine bay and force fed by twin turbos. Other features include HRE rims, a C-West body kit and spoiler wing, just like in the film.
A special Premium Offer gives subscribers the option to also receive a display case with light effects, an essential accessory that will allow collectors to show, admire and keep their Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) Fast & Furious™ scale model.
Fanhome’s Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) is also the perfect companion to the 1:8 scale Fanhome Dodge Charger R/T, a screen accurate replica of the legendary car driven by Dominic Toretto.
Throughout the subscription, collectors and Fast & Furious fans will trace the incredible story of the evolution of the Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) with special full-color magazines that accompany each month’s shipment of components. Explore the origin and early success of Nissan’s racing division, the development of the Skyline GT-R (R34), and how the car became a favorite of street racers and import car customizers in the ensuing decades. Explore the high-octane world of the Fast & Furious films and how they changed and expanded automotive fandom and import car culture forever.
In the first street-race vignette in 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious, protagonist Brian O’Conner (played by Paul Walker) appears in his beloved Skyline GT-R (R34), competing against a Toyota Supra (A80 model), Mazda RX-7 (FS3S type), and a Honda S2000 (AP1 type). The Skyline’s supreme performance enables O’Conner to beat his highly tuned rivals, and in the process, the model became an overnight sensation.
At various stages throughout the subscription, collectors will also receive exclusive gifts from Fanhome that include a 1:43 scale miniature version of the Skyline GT-R (R34), a trio of large (12×16 inches) full-color, frameable posters, a ceramic mug, a metal replica of Brian O’Conner’s Florida license plate (non-functional) for the car, and a binder to store the collected magazines.
