Nissan's most powerful car the Skyline GT-R. Nissan introduced a NISMO Edition GT-R for model year 2014. At the JAF Grand Prix race in May 1969, the Nissan Skyline GT-R (PCG10), which was just released in February, made its debut in race-spec trim. Inside the Nissan GT-R50, two different carbon fibre finishes are extensively used across the centre console, instrument panel and door linings, along with black Alcantara and black leather on the seats.
Outside, there are a few subtle clues that this was an extremely rare version of a classic sports car: red 432” badging on the flanks and hatch, unique mag-style wheels, and the signature vertically-stacked dual exhaust tips. GT-R's Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) monitors weight distribution and adjusts rear brake force to compensate for added weight from passengers or cargo.
The mad, cartoonish silhouette racers of the early part of the following decade were confined to their homeland, and anyone who's driven a virtual Group 5 Tomica Skyline on Gran Turismo will attest to the ‘interesting' handling of that particular car.
The GT-R safety car leading a pack of cars at the Super GT race at Fuji Speedway in May 2008. Regardless of age, condition and the degree of (light) modification, the older Skyline GT-Rs didn't present any surprises in their pecking order, although we did expect the R32 to push the R33 a bit harder around the tight course.
With a new Pure model, the 2018 Nissan GT-R slips back to about $100,000. The new Nissan GT-R features an ideally sized, twin-turbocharged 3.8L V6 engine, which breaks the convention point of the standard performance car engine. Harder-edged V-Spec models were fitted with stiffer suspension, underbody diffusers to increase downforce (fitted to official UK cars), an active rear limited-slip diff and extra functions on the digital multi-function display.
On the other, dead stock the 240SX a recipe for fun right off the bat, offering a perfect balance of Nissan Skyline GT-R features: it's a lightweight, sleek rear-wheel drive fastback with excellent all-independent suspension and a torquey inline four. If not, make sure that the car's specification corresponds to the age it purports to be. Import cars have often led a chequered history, and as we have seen, proper UK Skyline experts are rare.
