Need for Speed Payback: Build of the Week #3 – 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-SPEC


The third build of the week has dropped, revealing a new look at the Japanese classic - the 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-SPEC, most commonly referred to as the Nissan Skyline R34 GTR, and BlackPanthaa's dream car.


This is the first car since the beginning of Build of the Week to not be a Derelict, a car you find and build from scrap, but is also not a new reveal for Need for Speed Payback's car list. The R34 Skyline is the hero car for the games main protagonist Tyler Morgan, and is also set to be shown at Gamescom in an on-stage race against Most Wanted (2005)'s iconic BMW M3 GTR.

As usual, down below you can find screenshots provided by Ghost Games over on EA's website, as well a look at the build's current modifications and its stock and modified statistics

What better way to start off on a journey to build a street race car than to do it with a NISSAN Skyline GT-R V-Spec. This trusty R34 has been built using some of NISSANs own parts with a Nismo Z-Tune hood, front bumper and sideskirts. The iconic Nismo LMGT4 rims coupled with the yellow calipers set the look and stance. Adding a unique wrap made up of bright colours and contrasting materials really make this car stand out on the streets and roads of Fortune Valley.
