1994 Nissan R33 GTS25-t
The Skyline nomenclature has long been associated with desirability, sportiness, and reliability, boasting the newest tech Nissan could bring to the table. The R33 was no exception with its updated powertrain, sleek styling, and an abundance of driver amenities. This 1994 Type M is finished in a fresh coat of Nissan's fantastic Dark Green Blue Pearl Metallic (BN0) and is offered with only 93k verified and documented miles. The body is in excellent shape aside from a few minor dings and scratches associated with normal use. The paint shines brilliantly in the sun thanks to an extra pinch of the OEM flake, which helps enhance the factory color. Notable repairs in Japan include a new hood, trunk lid, and damage to the right rear quarter panel. These repairs do little to take away from this GTS25-t’s appearance thanks to the OEM rain visors, duckbill rear spoiler, and brand-new Stage Monroe wheels. Powerful, refined, and a blast to drive, this seriously fun sports car is a collectible Japanese Classic that is turn-key and ready to be enjoyed!
The cabin is in good shape overall and includes several power amenities making daily use much more enjoyable. The dash is in great shape and lacks any UV damage or distortion. Interior upgrades include a Key's steering wheel, Nismo shift knob, and an aftermarket Defi tachometer, replacing the inoperable factory tach. The power locks, windows, and mirrors all work properly, however, the power-folding mirror function is no longer working. The seats are in good shape and lack any major rips, stains, or tears. They are adequately bolstered for cornering and are comfortable on long drives. The carpets are in fine shape, as are the door cards and the headliner, which have resisted major wear over the years. The digital automatic climate control works great and blows cold A/C and hot heat on demand. The upgraded Kenwood radio functions properly and the sound quality is decent. The original owner's manuals are even included in the glovebox! That's not to say the interior is perfect, we did want to note the common wear on the radio and climate control trim, a missing ashtray, and that the entire trunk has been stripped by the previous owner. Still, considering this R33's age the interior has held up quite well over the years.
Under the bonnet is the silky-smooth and potent RB25DET. The 2.5L is straight off an oil and filter service and starts up with the twist of a key, thanks to a new 12V battery. A new fuel filter, spark plugs, and brand-new fuel lines were installed by our trained technicians helping this R33 pull hard to redline. The straight six delivers the iconic sounds the RB is known for, thanks to the Apexi intake and aftermarket catback exhaust. The tone is throaty and menacing, but has minimal droning at highway speeds. An upgraded Blitz radiator ensures the RB’s coolant temperatures stay within a safe range on the daily commute or while having a little fun on the backroads. A slick-shifting five-speed gearbox makes gear changes rewarding and power is sent directly to the rear wheels, thanks to the upgraded twin-disk clutch. Sitting on aftermarket adjustable coilovers, the reduced fender gap looks killer and this R33 handles great while cornering, with no noticeable body roll. The structure is all tied together with a front strut tower brace and new tires have been mounted at all four corners to enhance grip. The brakes are confident, and the steering is power-assisted and communicative. As a top-tier performer, this Skyline has all you might want in a sports car and then some. Impressive handling, plenty of power, and all the styling to match!
