1995 Nissan R33 GTS25-T
The Nissan Skyline needs little introduction, as it's a legendary model in its own right. This well-known 90s sports car is one of the most sought-after Japanese classics. This perfectly modified 1995 GST25-T example has been outfitted with some expensive and tasteful performance and aesthetic modifications. The body is finished in a one-off Steel Mist Metallic, and aside from some light dings and chips is in good overall shape. The front fenders and hood were replaced with lighter and wider OEM GT-R fenders overseas. Additionally, this R33 is rocking an OEM GTR front bumper and OEM GTR front lip and a carbon fiber front grille. The quarter panels were replaced in Japan due to a rear impact and you can see evidence of that inside the trunk area. Structurally it's a good car, and it has passed Virginia state safety inspection with flying colors. The body is also fitted with OEM side skirts, OEM rear spats, and a GTR style FRP spoiler. Other highlights include 18" Volk TE-37 wheels, and a Mine's catback exhaust just to name a few. This one-of-a-kind sports sedan provides affordable thrills and room for the whole crew. Fast, fun, and purpose-built this Japanese Classic is too good to miss!
The cabin in the R33 is rather spacious compared to the R32. Plenty of leg and headroom and can comfortably fit five. The dash is free of any cracks or bubbling, which isn't surprising on a vehicle with miles this low. The OEM steering wheel was swapped for a Nardi wheel to improve the driver's grip while piloting this rocket. A Defi boost gauge was added to give you more accurate readings of the positive pressure created by the HKS turbocharger, and it's easy to read at a quick glance. The center console includes an automatic digital climate control system that blows cold A/C and heat at your command. Carrozzerria audio replaces the OEM radio and is fully operable. Right below is a DEFI Stepmaster gauge set which includes boost, oil pressure, and oil temperature to help keep an eye on this modified Type M's engine vitals. The driver-side seat is a Recaro sport seat and just like the passenger seat, there are no signs of rips or tears. The door cards are also in equally good condition with no major holes or tears, the headliner doesn't have any sagging or stains either. There are even decent power amenities that come along with this sporty sedan including standard power windows, power locks, and power-folding mirrors. These all work like a charm and make daily use quite manageable.
Under the hood, a 2.5L RB25DET is fresh off an oil and filter service. Although it has unverified/undocumented miles, the silky smooth straight six feels fresh and pulls hard to redline. The Greddy front-mounted intercooler menacingly peeks through the GTR bumper, reminding everyone that this sedan is far from stock. This monster starts right up thanks to the new 12V battery installed by our trained technicians and at idle it emits a wonderful tone thanks to a rare Mine's catback exhaust system. A set of Tomei cams adds a healthy dose of horsepower. The HKS intake filter draws in plenty of fresh air and makes all the right noises. If that isn't enough, a HKS top mount turbo and HKS manifold bring a smile to your face with even just a dab of throttle. Acceleration is impressive off the line, with an intoxicating turbo spool until you let off the throttle. The HKS BOV is unmistakable when you back out of the throttle, adding to the aural sensation that is this R33. All of this is being controlled by an Apexi Power FC ECU and it claimed to make 350whp however, we have not put it on a dyno. The brakes are confident in slowing this bully down to a halt. The factory suspension was swapped out for a set of aftermarket coilovers which lowers the center of gravity and allows the sedan to corner flatter. Also, a front Cusco strut bar and JIC rear strut bar reduce body roll and sharpen handling. The 5-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly thanks to an upgraded Nismo clutch and doesn't grind when changing gears. Putting all the power to the ground is an upgraded Nismo rear differential, which is also great if you love the skids! While the Skyline was being inspected by our trained technicians, we took care of several maintenance and wear items. Our trained techs replaced the left rear hicas arm, added new spark plugs, and mounted and balanced a brand new set of Falkens at all four corners. This Nissan Skyline GTS25-t sedan is one awesome contender to do it all on a daily basis.
