After many years on the forbidden fruit list, the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R is fair game in America. Lamphear's car came to the U.S. through a private broker, and it's pretty stunning, a high-mileage chassis with an upgraded interior and track-ready chassis tuning, plus a low-mileage, tricked-up engine. This was the car that shifted her focus, leading to the purchase of her first R32 GT-R and a new passion for all-wheel-drive, inline-six drivelines.
According to an online listing, the GT-R features Volks Racing RE30 19x11 wheels. But in truth, the GT-R is a bit of a brute that puts all-out performance well ahead of luxury car-like refinement on its list of priorities. The Nissan GT-R V-Spec is a high-spec model which appeared as an option pack for the Nissan R32 GT-R.
The new Pure trim includes 20-inch wheels with summer run-flat tires, LED headlights and running lights, power-folding and heated mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, an adaptive suspension, configurable drive modes, and keyless entry and ignition.
Detailed rating breakdowns (including performance, comfort, value, interior, exterior design, build quality, and reliability) are available as well to provide shoppers with a comprehensive understanding of why customers like the 2018 GT-R. In January 1999, Nissan introduced the fifth generation of the Skyline GT-R along with the V-Spec version.
Running major amounts of negative camber on the 11-inch wide front wheels and belching fire from their side-exit exhausts, the cars devour the tarmac, decorated in iconic liveries. She moved on to Nissan Skyline GT-R a 400- horsepower RX3 coupe and an FD RX7 S1 before finding her way behind the wheel of a 550-horsepower, RB25DET-swapped R32 Skyline GTS-t.
The standard version is extreme enough, but Nissan has developed an even more powerful variant in the form of the GT-R NISMO, which has 592bhp. A few years ago, some high rollers were eager to drive the turbocharged, all-wheel-drive Porsche 959 of 1986-'89 on American streets, and they helped inspire a rewrite of the rules about importing cars for private ownership.
The GT-R has been around for a while now, but has been constantly developed throughout its time on sale to keep it on par with the world's most capable sports cars. It's the smallest and lightest here, yet the R32's interior is reasonably spacious, if basic, with that now-retro mouse-fur trim Nissan once loved.
