No my fellow friends, what you see is not a fake or a myth. This here is a bona fide Nissan Skyline BNR32, otherwise known as a FREAKING GTR! Admittedly the R32 is less famous than its younger brother the R34 probably due to the fact that the R34 was in the Fast and Furious franchise. Nevertheless, the R32 is a legend in its own right. It was created to homologate Nissans Group A racing antics at the time and I’d beg to differ that Nissan knew just how much of a hero and classic this car would grow into.
This specimen is far from stock but fret not, it has been modified tastefully. Phew thank god for that. Working outside in, the owner has wisely kept the mods subtle with Nismo N1 bits and bobs thrown in and a Rocket Dancer Fujimura front carbon lip accompanied with a back flap. Wheels come courtesy of Work Meister and their 18″ SP01 piece.
Clearly the owner is performance oriented because it takes such dedication to build the engine from a race spec built bottom end, all the way to the twin HKS GT2530 turbos (check out the spec sheet at the bottom for more details). Everything has been beefed up using only the best of parts creating a machine of purity and excellence. Dare I say even better than what came out of the factory nearly 30 years ago.
With an eye tearing list of hardware, it is only right to have an equally impressive ECU to keep things in check and the Link G4 standalone ecu is just what the doctor prescribed. The cockpit allows the driver to not be overwhelmed but rather fed information by a gentle butler. Note the extremely rare and high in demand stock GTR32 steering wheel.
The factory ATTESA 4WD system is more than capable of handling the up rated performance and continues to do so with the aid of Japanese coilovers all around and Endless high temperature brake pads front and rear. What wouldn’t I give to have this car just for a few hours. Ugh the torture. I’ll treat you guys to a gallery of pictures of this gem from our talented photographer . It doesn’t get much better than this.
