Routinely voted by the classic car magazines as one of the greatest Japanese cars of all time, Nissan's high-tech Skyline GT-R burst onto the motoring scene in 1989 to universal acclaim. Built specifically to contest Group A, the original R32 GT-R Skyline dominated the Australian racing scene, earning the nickname 'Godzilla' and ulimately, banishment from the ATCC. Debuting at Mallala in June 1990, the R32 race programme was run by Gibson Motorsport and from the outset it was clear the car had the potential to be a race winner but it wasn't until 1991 that everything came together for the team and drivers Jim Richards and Mark Skaife crushed the opposition, including a win at the all important Bathurst enduro. Despite increased minimum weight and reduced boost bar for 1992, the Skyline continued its winning ways, famously scoring a repeat win at Bathurst in the toughest condition - and a hostile reception from the crowd when Richards and Skaife took the podium.

In road going form, the R32 was powered by a twin-turbo 2.6-litre in-line six delivering 300bhp at 6,800rpm, allied with a sophisticated 4WD system and HICAS all-wheel steering, the R32 was a devastating road car. Unofficially the Skyline held the lap record on the legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife. In 1991, Nissan Australia imported 100 examples of the R32 GT-R and with a list price of $107,000 it was firmly in supercar territory. Today, the Australian delivered R32s are prized collector's items.

Originally owned by Ralph Sarich, well known inventor of the Orbital engine, this rare Australian delivered R32 Skyline has a build date of May 1991 and was factory finished in Black Pearl Metallic. Showing 102,300 kms on the clock and now with the fourth owner, the car has been little used in recent years, having travelled approximately 20,000 kms in the past decade. The car is very well documented, with full service history and remains in original condition apart from the addition of a modern stereo and different gear knob (both original items are included), including the original GT-R key. The interior is in excellent condition for its age, with minor wear to the driver's seat bolsters evident. The car has required only routine maintenance and the brakes and timing belts have recently been done. Included in the sale is an R32 GT-R workshop manual. To be sold registered in NSW.
