1993 Nissan R33 Skyline Type-S
Stock Number: 4462
This 1993 Nissan Skyline is a real head-turner and looks striking from any angle. Riding on new Fortune Auto adjustable dampers and a fender-filling Gram Light 57Xtreme alloys, this GTS25 Type-S R33 handles like a dream and has a manual gearbox for the automotive purist. The body is in good shape, other than your routine minor dings and chips associated with normal use. The deep ruby red hues of the Super Clear Red (AN0) paint contrasts against the dark privacy tint and highlight the factory aero that is much desired. Offered with only 54K verified miles, legally imported and up to date on maintenance, you won't want to miss out on this clean example.
This particular cockpit is much nicer than your average R33. It's remarkable how well the car was kept up, and little tell-tales like the OEM plush carpet mats are an indicator of this. The dash is in good shape and is lacking any cracks or weather-related wear, and the digital climate control and factory gauges work as they should. Power windows, locks, and adjustable mirrors make daily driving much more convenient. An adjustable steering column provides large and small drivers with better ergonomics and an updated ATOTO head unit is closely within reach. The system is capable of android auto and Apple Carplay, and pumps tunes into the cabin to supplement the I-6. The seats are upholstered in a soft gray cloth and are bolstered solidly for long cruises. They are in above average shape and there are no notable rips, stains, or tears. The door cards and headliner are also in great nick, as are the steering wheel and gearshift.
Known for the reliability of the naturally aspirated straight-six, and improved chassis dynamics, the R33 is the best driving US legal Skyline to date. Many of the squeaks and rattles associated with the R32 were mitigated thanks to this updated and more rigid platform. Powered by a naturally aspirated RB25DE, the 2498cc mill fires up with a twist of the key. Benefitting from a fresh semi-synthetic oil and filter service, it doesn't require any scheduled servicing for the next 3000 miles. Torque is sent to the rear wheels through a close-ratio five-speed manual gearbox. Shifts rip off at they should and there isn't a hitch or grind to be mentioned. The brakes bite down nice and hard as the front and rear units are upgraded to Z32 hardware and are virtually new. The steering is weighted properly and communicates as it should with the driver. The suspension itself might be the high point of this car, and these Fortune Auto coilovers make the car stick to the road like it's on rails. A five-lug conversion makes finding wheels a snap and a HICAS delete makes handling more predictable. The wide all-season tires are mounted to those iconic Rays alloys; they have plenty of tread left in them and can handle rain as well as the dry tarmac with ease.
