What starts out as an already impressive Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 is extensively race-modified, given a racing-spec intercooler, larger ceramic twin turbos, a twin plate clutch, a racing suspension and shock absorbers, a bright red paint job (and Tommykaira's logo in foot-high letters on the sides, and unique Tommykaira badges replacing that of the GT-R) and a lightweight go-over. The result is the Tommykaira R. The R still retains the beefy Nissan RB26DETT DOHC twin turbo engine, however, yet the output over the stock Skylines is truly staggering.
Compare to the 276 horsepower GT-R (which can be bought for around ¥5380000, or $45000 in Japan): the base Tommykaira R (¥6780000 -- $56666 USD) boasts 370 hp, the Rs (¥7980000 - $66695 USD) 425, and the Rz (presumably, still in development, or not directly on sale to the public) a whopping 530 hp @ 7800 rpm. ... Holy moly.
The ultimate rice rocket.
