THE NISSAN SKYLINE

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 ultimately, banishment from the ATCC. Debuting at Mallala in June 1990, the R32 race program 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 in-line six 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.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautifully well-kept R32 GT-R comes direct from the place of its birth following a lifetime of coddling and care. Having only two owners from new, the original purchaser was a GT-R fanatic who fastidiously garaged and cared for his homegrown supercar. Kept dry and never driven during the rain, protective tape was installed under the door handles to prevent scratches—a small testament to the level of detail and extent of care bestowed upon the car.

Very original in presentation, the car was fitted with a NISMO front air duct in the front bumper at the time of original delivery. Additionally, the suspension was modified with NISMO strut braces in the front and rear and a Kei Office suspension system—although the original suspension parts are included.

Showing only 6,700 km, which are understood to be from new, the car was acquired by the current owner a few years ago. Complete with original service books, owner's manual, key, spare tire, tools, and aluminum wheels, copious maintenance records also speak to the lifetime of attention given to this Skyline. Rarely seen anywhere in such unmolested condition, they are particularly rare on these American shores where the Skyline-model was never sold new.
