The R34 GT-R was made to be shorter (from front to rear) than the R33 as well as having the front wheels made pushed to the front. The valve covers were also painted glossy red, rather than dull black.
A new feature of the R34 GT-R was a 5.8" LCD multifunction display on the center of the dashboard, which showed seven different live readings of engine and vehicle statistics such as turbocharger pressure (1.2 bar max), oil and water temperature, among others.
The V-Spec model added two extra features to the display: intake and exhaust gas temperatures.
