1993 Nissan Skyline GTS25-T Super Clear Red
Pending Sale: $19,995
Completely re-engineered for 1993, the improved Skyline Coupe became the standard bearer of modern sports car performance. Showing off a more powerful engine, improved interior, and a more refined ride, the new Skyline was a more substantial car. Its flowing, graceful lines obscure a fire breathing six cylinder, now legal on US shores.
This tastefully modified, the body lines have been preserved without any cluttered lips, high rise spoilers or ground effects. The body is in good shape overall without any major dents or scratches, the (AN0) Super Clear Red's crimson tone has depth, and is lustrous. To fill out the fenders, a set of KTS SC adjustable dampers have been fitted to all corners. Reducing the ride height not only looks more appealing, but this GTS25-T corners with noticeably less body roll, staying flat through the twisties. 17" Kaikimoto Super N-GT wheels in gunmetal have replaced the smaller factory rolling stock and brand new front brakes have been installed up front to help decrease stopping distances. All four tires have been replaced brand new ones, mounted and balanced by one of our trained technicians. The RB25DE-T turbo motor fires up instantly, courtesy of a new 12v battery. The motor idles evenly, with slightly deeper exhaust tone exiting the HKS Silent Power 3" turbo back. Breathing is aided additionally with a Greddy front mounted intercooler and HKS mushroom intake element. Mid-level torque is a huge improvement over the previous generation in factory form, and the engine pulls hard until redline. The transmission, a 5-speed manual, also operates with ease. Its deliberate gear changes occur without a hitch or grind. Most importantly, the timing belt and water pump service has been performed, ensuring the most expensive service isn't needed for the next 100,000 kilometers.
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. Steering inputs have been sharpened by a smaller diameter MOMO Corse leather wheel, adding a subtle bit of flair to the cockpit. Mounted directly behind it is an HKS EVC, allowing the pilot to dial up a few more horsepower if necessary. The interior's executive cloth is in good shape, lacking any major imperfections, sans some shift boot and drivers side armrest wear. Occupants in the back will also find the cabin in good shape, and benefit from some additional privacy tint. The power locks, lighting, gauges, and one touch widow all function remarkably well, as does heat and A/C.
