Today's Nissan R35 GT-R is called Godzilla for a reason. It's immensely quick, and will take down cars that are twice as expensive with ease. It's packed full of technology, one of the most advanced weapons you can bring to a track day or an abandoned back road.

Now, thanks to British outlet , we're able to see just how different the two GT-Rs really are. The R34 might not have all of the advanced driver aides of its younger brother, but it still has a complex AWD system, full of computers helping the driver go as quickly as possible. It's also got a real, honest-to-goodness manual transmission—a far cry from the six-speed dual-clutch unit of the current car in terms of driver engagement.

There's no electronic stability control in the R34 either, which means full-lock sideways action can be achieved quite easily. The current car might have much more horsepower, a bunch of comfort for long trips, and electronic aids to help you set the fastest time on track, but the fun factor is something that can't be forgotten.

Take a look and see how the two legendary Nissans fare against each other in a rain-soaked head-to-head.
