1995 Nissan Skyline GTS25t Type-M
Stock Number: 4564
The R33 is a fabled iteration of the Nissan Skyline. Its updated chassis, improved interior ergonomics, and hefty displacement bump allowed this generation to redefine the brand. While some have shunned it as the boat of the Skyline era, it comes in at less than a 250lbs difference. Partner that with the more powerful RB25DET and it secretly became one of the best driving skylines of the bunch. The slightly longer/wider stance gives it superior handling and ride comfort. Our latest '95 comes to us all in pretty much stock form, which frankly has become a hard thing to find these days. Perfect for the purist or those looking for a blank slate to work from. Finished in no doubt one of the most desirable color options, Cloud White (QM1.) The paint shows exceptionally well, free of any routine stone chips and clear coat etching. The body has been kept up equally well save a few typical door dings per any 25 year old car. While all stock this one does have a few tricks up its sleeve. The factory high mount wing and aero front bumper are only accentuated by the Nismo style front grille and give it a truly unique OEM look. Seeing as these were so popular with tuning, finding one largely all stock and this clean is a tall order these days.
The more robust platform of the R33 had some benefits trickle down to the interior; the increased chassis stiffness lends itself to fewer squeaks and rattles, making this a nice daily driver option. The seats are in great shape, far nicer than most vehicles half its age. The bolstering is better than the prior models, and provide great support over long haul road trips. While the rear seats appear to have hardly ever been used. Overall the interior has been kept as OEM as the body which is always nice to see. It even still sports the hard to find factory airbag. Those weren't a standard feature on cars in Japan for several more years. One of the 33's best interior attributes was eliminating the standard R32 bubble and C-pillar delamination. The new and improved interior feels considerably nicer than the previous generation while retaining the relatively simplistic layout. As you would expect this one is fitted with all the standard power features of the day; windows, mirrors, door locks, and automatic climate control. All of which are functioning properly and the A/C is surprisingly cold be being a 25-year-old system.
Mechanically the R33's got a bump in performance with the introduction of the RB25DET. Not only was displacement increased but the turbocharger was a bit larger as well. This 25 fires up quickly, idles smoothly and pulls hard throughout the RPM range. The transmission was also upgraded on the R33's and is a stronger gearbox than it's predecessor. Shifts through the 5-speed manual are grind free and smooth, while the clutch engages with ease. While largely all stock it does have an APEX'i Dunk Megaphone high flow exhaust which makes the 25 far more pronounced, the way it should have been from the factory. Under the hood is a simple HKS intake which lets the turbo breathe a bit easier. The intake's biggest attribute is finally allowing the turbo to make some well-appreciated noise. With a mere 94k verified miles this car is in great shape for its age with plenty of life left in it. After all, Nissan built this sports car to stand the test of time, which makes it so impressive how they actually did. It's a testament to Nissan's engineering, as this car outperforms most newer vehicles, despite having been made a quarter-century ago. After a new set of tires, a fresh battery, and your typical oil change this one is ready to go. For those looking for a particularly clean, all stock car that's just as happy pulling daily duty as it is tearing up back roads then look no further. This GTS25-t is the ideal candidate for anyone looking to stand out!
