1993 Nissan Skyline GTS-t Series 2
1993 Marked the 60th anniversary of the Nissan brand and to celebrate they made a limited production model of the R32. While fundamentally the same as the regular GTS-t it did start off with a few different aero pieces. Those were removed in favor of the more distinguishable GTR goodies instead. The entire front end has been replaced with the GTR hood, grill, bumper, and color matched lip. Type-M sideskirts and rear spats keep the lower bodylines flowing accordingly. Typically we would see the Type-M or GTR wing out back but this one has actually been shaved which gives a refreshingly clean look to the back end. The Gun Gray Metallic (KH2) is one of the most popular color options, and for good reason. The paint has been well preserved over the years retaining it's deep luster. The body has been kept to the same level, free of any notable dents or dings in the bodywork. It's currently sitting at 94K verified miles and has just gone through our shop for a full service. The 17" Impul split spoke wheels have four new tires installed to make sure there's plenty of contact patch.
The interior has been given a few sporty upgrades to compliment the exterior. The most notable change comes with the driver's seat, which has been replaced in favor of a fixed back bucket to keep you firmly in place. The bucket is in generally good shape however does have some traditional bolster wear from getting in and out (which can be seen in the photos.) The remaining special edition seats have been kept up well, free of any tears or notable stains. The same can be said about the carpets and headliner. One thing to note, the trim around the rear quarter windows is beginning to separate. It's a rather common thing to see and could be corrected by a quality upholstery shop. All of the power accessories are present and functioning. Power windows, power/folding/heated mirrors, and automatic climate control. The dash is free of any cracking however does have a small bubble which plagues all R32's.
Under the hood has been kept largely all stock. To help stiffen up the chassis a bit strut tower braces were added front and rear. To help the RB20DET breath a bit better a HKS intake was fitted up front and a Bee*R exhaust out back. Both look right at home and give the RB it's signature aggressive sound. Power comes on quickly as the turbo spools and pulls heartily to redline. The 5 speed shifts easily making it a blast to row through the gears. Power is evenly transferred to the rear wheels thanks to the viscous LSD. Tein coilovers help settle down the ride height over the Impul wheels and tighten up the overall drive. As with all of our vehicles it has been thoroughly inspected and serviced by our trained technicians. In order to ensure many more years of fun the timing belt and water pumper were just replaced. Along with the routine service items like an oil change, air filter, fuel sock and filter, battery, coolant flush, plugs, and accessory belt. With their excellent drive, parts availability, and timeless good looks you really can't go wrong with an R32!
