1993 Nissan Skyline R33 Sedan
We just got our hands on this awesome GTS25-T sedan, making for the best of both worlds. All the day to day practicality of a 4 door sedan powered by Nissan's killer RB25DET and all wrapped up with a proper 5 speed manual. From the outside you can tell the R33 was the next evolution in the Skyline family. With only 54K miles the Cloud White paint has been kept in great shape. The front bumper does have some touch up spots that can be seen in the pictures but hasn't effected the bumper fitment. The body itself has been kept up equally well with no real blemishes. All of the body panels line up well and are free of any gaps. The exterior has been kept unmodified which is a bit of a rarity these days.
The same story goes on with the interior. The R33's have a much revamped gauge layout which makes for a nice updated feel to the cockpit. The interior has been kept all original and in great shape. The seats are free of any rips or tears and the same can be said about the carpeting. The driver seat is free of the common bolster wear and the back seats appear to have been hardly ever used. Since the dash layout has been changed from the R32 to R33 the infamous dash bubble is no longer an issue. While fitted with a host of power accessories (windows, locks, mirrors) this one also has the optional sunroof which is still functioning as it should. The automatic climate control blows nice and cold. The shift knob is an upgraded M's piece which feels great in the hand.
Under the hood the RB25DET has been kept in stock trim. At some point in it's life this R33 had the automatic transmission replaced with a proper 5 speed manual. Since factory parts were used the swap looks incredibly clean, the only notable difference is the gauge cluster. Since this car is mechanically all stock it rides fantastic. Despite physically being a bit larger than the R32 you really don't notice it driving. The suspension rides well when you're cruising but remains light on it's feet when you start tossing it around. Power from the 2.5L is great, the added torque is noticeable down in the lower RPM's. The transmission shifts with ease and is free of any grinding or hesitations when engaging. The power is delivered quickly to the rear wheels making it a blast to run around town. The timing belt was also just replaced 10K miles ago. These cars are ideal for those who don't want to sacrifice convenience in the name of performance.
