1993 Nissan R33 Skyline
Pending Sale: $18,495
The R33 is a fabled iteration of the Nissan Skyline. Its updated chassis, improved interior ergonomics, and hefty displacement bump, allowed this generation to redefine the brand. While some have shunned it as the boat of the Skyline era, it comes in at less than a 250lbs difference. Partner that with the more powerful RB25 and it actually becomes one of the best driving skylines of the bunch. The slightly longer/wider stance gives it superior handling and ride comfort. Our late model '93 comes to us all in stock form which can be hard to track down in this day in age. Perfect for purist or those looking for a blank slate to work from. Finished in no doubt one of the best color options, Super Black (KH3.) The paint shows exceptionally well, free of any routine stone chips and clear coat etching. The body has been kept up equally well save a few typical door dings. However with 36K verified miles that should come as no surprise.
The more robust platform of the R33 had some benefits trickle down to the interior; the increased chassis stiffness lends itself to less squeaks and rattles, making this a nice daily driver option. The seats are in great shape, far nicer than most vehicles half its age. The bolstering is better than the prior models, and provide great support over long haul road trips. While the rear seats appear to have hardly ever been used. Overall the interior has been kept as OEM as the body with the exception of an aftermarket Nav system and head unit. Barring the Nav system the dash is clean, free of the typical bubble we see with the R32. The new and improved interior feels considerably nicer than the previous generation while retaining the straight forward, easy to use layout. The factory wheel has been kept up with surprisingly well, however the shift knob and hand brake boot do show a bit of wear. Fitted with all the standard power features of the day; windows, mirrors, door locks, and an automatic climate control. All of which are functioning properly.
Mechanically the R33's got a bump in performance with the introduction of the RB25DET. Not only was displacement increased but the turbocharger was a bit larger as well. This RB25DET fires up quickly idles smoothly and pulls hard throughout the RPM range. The transmission was also upgraded on the R33's and is a stronger gearbox than it's predecessor. Shifts through the 5 speed manual transmission are grind free and smooth, while the clutch engages with ease. The stock suspension rides well and is more than capable when the roads get twisty. To ensure that everything continues to function properly our trained techs have gone through the car. A brand new battery, fuel filter and sock, a fresh set of plugs, and 4 new tires later this R33 is ready to go. For those looking for a particularly clean, all stock, car that's just as happy pulling daily duty as it is tearing up back roads then look no further. This GTS25-t is the ideal candidate for anyone looking to stand out!
