Hey guys, I know I have another thread where I discuss cars I've been blessed enough to work with but I wanted to get some thoughts on this Skyline since it's not a car most of us see on the regular. This was my first international collaboration so I was pretty excited. The car is owned by a guy in Sweden and was a show car built clearly to promote the Resident Evil franchise. He has other plans for it, honestly he bought the car with this paintjob and is covering it after he goes widebody,but what do you guys all think? Any RE lovers out there? Or if you had to pick a movie/show to promote like this what would you pick?

Only thing I could come close to considering would be TMNT on my rx8 but probably just with colour references to each turtle, I don't think I could ever go THIS bold.

Give the video a watch and let me know what you think!

The paint is cool, but the chrome finish on the wheels and the lazy eyelids on the headlights, all together as a package with that paint finish is making me feel queasy.

My idea of a car is a clean, minimalistic design that looks good without being flashy and attracting attention. Which is not this R34.

To each his own, I mean this in no way other than my personal opinion, and I understand it was for a promotion but......

I fully agree, and it's crazy kinda because the guys previous car was a wicked clean R33 (they get all the good cars, overseas ...not fair) but hopefully once his actual build takes off it will look sick. It will still be the base purple of this paintjob but with a clean bodykit and hopefully less flashy wheels. I can appreciate the effort and talent to PAINT something like this as opposed to printing a wrap, but I prefer clean too.

Wheels are a cool design and suit the look of the car, the chrome finish on them reverses that and makes everything look like shit.

Oh I always appreciate the time and effort put into a project, just not always the end result :lol:

Keep us up to date on his progress.

I appreciate the amount of work, but that is cringey AF (in my opinion :)

Ugh... as a long time fan on the GT-R (maybe one day I will own one, even if it is the R35...) so much wrong...

First - yeah, you like Resident Evil, but to pick scenes from the sh1tty movie instead of the video game...

Second - holy wheel gap batman! Never get aftermarket wheels without a decent drop. Oh, and the wheels are meh.

Third, the body kit is a bit over the top. I get standing out, but the R34 already stands out.

In conclusion, I third Byakuya's 'Poor R34' comment.

Haha totally agree, it's not his taste either. He is currently swapping the interior back to a stock R34 GTR interior and will be working on the body next! Can't wait to see it when it's done. On your thread "other car related things we do" also I'm the lounge there is another video featuring this car and a super clean s15 240sx that is getting 2jz swapped this winter.

My next collab with this crew is a beautiful white R34, check out the video on instagram @revmedia.ig

Oh an on that thread I just mentioned I just posted a video I did featuring Eleanor the Shelby GT500 from Gone in 60 Seconds! Let me.know what you think!
