1992 Nissan Skyline GTR
Stock Number: 4779
The GTR needs no introduction as it's one of the most prolific cars to ever come out of the Nissan factory. Track level performance in a streetcar, what more could you ask for? Hands down the most requested car we get here at Classics is the R32 GTR. There's no question as to why everyone is after Godzilla either; it's the car that put Nissan on the map. Our latest '92 has been kept pretty much all stock with a few nice touches. finished in arguably the best color of them all; Gun Gray Metallic (KH2.) The paint shows exceptionally well which leads us to believe that it was resprayed at some point in time. Overall the color looks fantastic and is free of any stone chips or clearcoat issues. Much the same can be said about the stock body, barring a door ding or two there's nothing of real concern to note. With iconic looks like this, you really don't need to make any changes. The only upgraded came by way of a set of 17" Enkei RPF-1s wrapped in fresh rubber look good on anything. Plus why wouldn't you want a set of proper track wheels on something built to set lap times. The hood has been fitted with the Nismo style lip that gives a subtle addition to the side profile. Paired with the chin spoiler and traditional slatted grille make for one mean looking front end.
The interior has been left pretty much untouched due to the very driver-centric focus. The factory seats have a much sportier design, as well as considerably more bolster support than the standard 32 seats. Due to the added bolstering, there is a slight bit of wear on the driver's side from getting in and out, which can be seen in the pictures but it's minimal to say the least. The passenger and rear seats are in excellent shape, free of any noticeable blemishes. The leather-wrapped wheel feels great in the hand, and the added weight of the Nismo shift knob adds a nice touch when you're rowing through the gears. While we haven't popped off the shift boot to confirm it feels like a C's short shifter was added since the gearbox is now more like a bolt action shifter. C's is typically the default company to go to which is why we're just assuming that's who made it. The factory gauge layout, which is already very easy to read, has been built upon with the addition of stand-alone boost, oil temp, and volts gauges. We're happy to report that this car only has minor dash imperfections. Usually, we expect to find the infamous dash bubble but this one is in really good shape. The only small issue is above the center vents where there's a small chip, probably from a dash-mounted GPS or something of that nature that left a mark when it was removed. The automatic climate control is a nice touch though we do want to make note that the A/C is currently inoperable. We're trying to look into the issue, but likely the car is going to be sold with it inop. The original radio was also replaced though the head unit looks like it was just put in place to fill the void and wasn't actually hooked up. Even if it were it would still have little use here stateside, plus who needs a radio when you have an RB26 anyways. All of the basic power accessories function as expected; power windows, mirrors, door locks, and you even have the rare factory rain guards for some extra ventilation on dreary days.
We all know that what lies under the aluminum hood is what makes this vehicle just so special. The 2.6 liter, twin-turbo, straight 6 has become just as iconic as the vehicle it's fitted in. With a mere 78K verified miles the RB26DETT fires right up and sounds healthy through the HKS Silent Hi-Power catback exhaust. It sounds great at idle and only gets better the further you put your foot down. Paired with the HKS exhaust the GTR really sings under load, which unfortunately just can't be replicated by speakers. All of the power is sent through the 5-speed ATTESA AWD transmission which never has an issue with grip. The power delivery through the 5 speed is exceptionally linear. The turbo's spool quickly and we see no signs of smoke on startup to indicate excessive wear. It clear this RB26 has been well maintained throughout the years it starts up quickly and idles smoothly. For instance, the timing belt was replaced 19K miles ago which is one of the biggest jobs when it comes to general upkeep. The stock suspension is more than adequate for some light duty track time without beating you to death driving there and back. The factory brakes are more than capable of carving up backroads. Godzilla's reputation precedes it and now is your chance to actually own this Japanese Classic. Its stellar performance, iconic looks, and incredible drivetrain made a name for Nissan as a brand and created a cult-like mystique for the model. Don't miss this opportunity to own such a well cared for example of the legend that is the R32 GTR!
