1993 Nissan Skyline 60th Anniversary Edition
Stock Number: 4490
When it comes to Skyline's the R32 will always be a favorite among enthusiasts. This Super White example has just arrived at our showroom and is in great condition and includes many quality modifications. Right off the bat, you’ll immediately notice the full Origin Labo style aero that adorns the Super White (326) coupe. The more aggressive aero really plays up the factory body lines while keeping its signature look. The paint is in beautiful condition, showing only minor rock chips and door dings, it's much better than you would expect from a 27-year-old car. Based on the color match of the aftermarket aero it appears the car was probably resprayed at some point in time which is partially why the paint looks so good. With all the new aero the stock wheels look a bit undersized so a set of 18” Monza Japan Zack JP-110s were fitted in their place. The multispoke look gives some much-needed flair and the sizing helps to better fill the wheel well. Also to help with cutting down on some of that wheel gap are Tein coilovers all around.
The interior styling is quite subtle, and overall, the condition is very good. Now that's not to say this car is showroom new, but its certainly above average. While it does have the typical R32 dash bubble it is free of any cracks or unnecessary holes which we see fairly often. One of the more unique change-ups is the white and blue-faced gauge cluster which plays off the anodized blue Momo steering wheel. It’s the little details like that which really make the car. Off to the right of the cluster is an APEX’I boost gauge along with a water temp gauge to keep a more accurate eye on vitals. While some may scoff at it, the massive stainless shift knob really is pleasant to row through the gears with. The whole point of these is to keep your hands closer to the steering wheel for better control when you start pushing it. The front and rear seats are nicely bolstered, their gray cloth provides a nice contrast against the darker dash and carpets. The 60th-anniversary seats are slightly different than the standard R32 ones which are part of what makes this one a special edition. There is some light wear to the seat bottom but have been spared from any egregious stains or tears. The OEM head unit was replaced in favor of a more modern Pioneer double din that does have some functionality here stateside still. These came with all of the electronic goodies of the era; power-folding mirrors, power locks, and windows all operate as they should. It also has the digital climate system however for the days you don’t want to roll around listening to the RB sing its song.
The driveline in the big draw to this particular car, its sports car DNA can be boiled down to the important talking points; front-engine, rear-wheel drive, an old fashioned manual transmission. The RB20DET fires right up and idles nearly vibration-free. With only 121K verified miles the RB feels strong regardless of where you are in the rev range. The turbo spools up quickly and has no trouble finding that 7K redline. A Blitz intake and giant front mount intercooler ensure that the turbo has no issues breathing easy. Outback you have an HKS HiPower catback to let the RB actually be heard. In stock trim, the R32 is a bit lackluster in the sound department. The 5 speed easily sends the power rewards through an upgraded twin-disc clutch. Those familiar with these know that they do chatter a bit when the clutch is depressed but it's not too invasive in the cabin. Shifts through the 5-speed transmission are smooth and grind free. To go along with the Tein coilovers a Cusco strut tower brace caps off the engine bay. When you’re looking for some extra power a Greddy Profec B-SpecII gives you adjustable boost levels, hence that need for the additional APEX’i gauge. To make sure everything is up to par our techs have gone ahead and put on four new tires, replaced the front right spindle, and done a routine oil service. Whether you're looking for a new project to modify or simply a turn-key JDM option, you can't go wrong with this GTS-t!
