Tuned JDM Icons Collide: 900 HP Toyota Supra Vs. 800 HP Nissan Skyline GT-R R34

admin


The Toyota Supra and Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R are two of the most iconic Japanese sports cars ever produced and the Officially Gassed channel on YouTuber recently pitted them together for a series of performance tests.

These two cars are far from standard, however. Like so many other Supras and Skylines out there, the duo have been heavily modified and are now much faster than when they first left the factory.
