We had always thought the Nissan Skyline Police car was too good for the real world, but someone has finally spotted one rolling down the streets of Japan in all its glory.
What we see here is an R34 Skyline GT-R police vehicle, with an impressive all-wheel drive, and a turbocharged, six-cylinder engine that gives the Godzilla its nickname. The RB26DETT engine on the Skyline is capable of producing 276 bhp and can it can hit a top speed of 300 km/h.
The Japanese police officers use a standard Toyota Crown sedan, but the pursuit vehicles they use are a bit more specialised. This particular R34 patrol car is part of a fleet that includes cars such as the Mazda RX-7, Honda NSX, and Nissan Z cars.
The Skyline police car is a rare catch, known among the JDM(Japanese Domestic Market) car fans; the R34's were built to be fast and used to compete even with the exotic supercars.
Seeing a Skyline up close is a rare incident by itself, but spotting an R34 Police Car in action? Totally cool if you ask us. So the YouTuber who spotted the car on on the Kan-Etsu expressway in Japan, couldn't resist filming. The footage we have is shaky, but it will give you a good look at the rare cop car.
Check out the video above to see the rare Skyline police car in action.
