1993 Nissan Skyline GTS-T Type-M R32
This awesomely modified 1993 GTS-T Type-M just touched down and with only 71K miles. On the outside it appears largely stock with the full Type-M aero. Finished in Black Pearl Metallic (732) which looks fantastic from every angle. The paint has a deep shine that really pops in the sunlight. Both the paint and body have been well maintained and are free of any notable dents or dings. The most obvious change to the looks are the 17" Work Meister SR2's which really set the car off. The wheels have been kept up pretty well over the years, however they're not perfect. This one did come equipped with the factory sunroof options however it has been sealed shut. It's rather common to come across, but even with it closed it makes the interior feel a bit more spacious.
The interior has been given much the same treatment. A few nice changes have been made to enhance the driving experience. The steering wheel is a thick, deep dish, and the shift knob is a weighted setup. Both feel great in the hand and make rowing through the gears that much better. The rest of the interior has been kept original and in great shape. The seats in the '93 offered a little bit more bolstering which is great on longer drives. There are some spots on the base of the driver's seat but the much more common bolster wear has been kept to a minimum. The passenger and rear seats are in great shape free of any notable wear or stains. Like most all R32's the dash does have a small bubble. Otherwise all of the power accessories are functioning as they should. The automatic climate control does work along with the A/C.
The majority of modifications made on this one are performance based. The suspension has had quite a few nice parts thrown at it. G-Master coilovers set the ride height which looks killer on the Works. Up front are a set of Nismo lower control arms along with adjustable uppers. Out back is a set of adjustable Tein traction arms. Both the engine bay and truck received strut tower braces as well. Under the hood the RB20DET is fitted with a HKS intake. To help on the exhaust side a full Fujitsubo with high flow resonator was bolted to the cat. Freeing up the exhaust on an RB should almost be mandatory since the sound is just fantastic. This setup is certainly louder than stock but isn't ear piercing. While louder at highway speeds it doesn't suffer from the typical drone. The RB20 fires right up and idles nicely. Power comes on quickly as the turbo spools and pulls strong to redline. The 5 speed shifts easily and fuss free. With all of the driver focused modifications this car is a blast every time you turn the key. Whether looking for a new project or simply a turn key driver's car you can't go wrong with an R32.
