1995 R33 GTS25-t Type M
During the mid-90s, Nissan was still at the top of its game, boasting success in sales showrooms and on the race track. The new R33 platform was proving to be just as capable as its predecessor, solidifying Nissan's claim of producing the most capable sports car in the Japanese market. This 1995 GTS25-t proves the hype is real, with its turbocharged RB25DET engine, factory five-speed manual gearbox, and balanced chassis. Finished in a fresh coat of Nissan White (QM1) this R33 was cared for in a previous life maintaining its stock appearance. Our coupe features an OEM optional factory front bumper, privacy tint, OEM alloys, and mid rise rear wing which complement the flowing lines and muscular, rear-drive proportions. Aside from a few scratches and dings, the body is in great shape overall, and this sporty four-seater is offered with a mere 59k verified and documented miles. Likely to attract both enthusiasts and collectors alike, this Skyline would make for a wonderful daily driver, weekend cruiser, or snappy track toy. Fresh off a recent service, and turn-key ready to rock, this Japanese Classic is a must-have for performance lovers and JDM aficionados who want a sexy, well-rounded, and fun coupe.
Once inside the coupe's surprisingly spacious interior, you'll find the gray cloth seats are still plush and soft to the touch. They are comfortable on long cruises and lack major rips, sun fade, or holes. The driver-side seat bottom does show a light stain and some minor bolster wear but at 25 years old it's a bit of nitpicking. The headliner and carpets also show extremely well with no major stains or peeling. The driver benefits from power windows, power locks, and power mirrors, as well as a fully functioning Carrozzeria audio system with Bluetooth capabilities. The dashboard and door cards lack any cracks or sun damage aside from some light flaking on the radio surround. The adjustable steering column allows the driver to obtain the perfect seating position while also having a clear line of sight. The clunky stock steering wheel has been replaced with a slick 3-spoke MOMO unit. The sportier wheel feels good in the palms of your hands, but we did want to note this modification deletes the factory driver's SRS airbag. The gauges are easy to read and all the switchgear is at hand making daily use enjoyable. The digital auto climate control is fully functional supplying heat on demand and the A/C blows cold after a recharge. That's not to say the interior is perfect, as the power-folding mirrors, and tachometer are currently not operational. Overall, this interior was well maintained and adds to the appeal of this unmolested time capsule, and the fitted Imperial floormats add a luxurious touch to complement the factory upholstery.
The heart of this beast comes courtesy of Nissan's RB25DET. An inline six powerhouse packed with plenty of potential, this engine is a fine companion for the R33 chassis and is relatively simple to service. Ignition is rapid, care of a new 12V battery, and a fresh oil and filter service performed in-house keeps this powerplant idling smooth and confidently. Shifts through the 5-speed manual transmission are direct and responsive, and power is sent to the rear wheels without hesitation. Acceleration is healthy and leaves little to be desired even in stock form! The stock suspension is plenty comfortable and compliant over road imperfections, while still holding strong throughout backroad twists and turns. The brakes stop on a dime and a set of four recently replaced Falken tires eliminate any unwanted road noise and will keep this R33 chugging along for many miles to come!
