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 RB26DETT in-line six allied with a sophisticated 4WD system and HICAS all-wheel steering, the R32 was a devastating road car. On paper, these cars were stated to produce 276hp, however these were usually underrated numbers to please the limiting laws in Japan. 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 one owner from new, the original purchaser fastidiously garaged and cared for his homegrown supercar. Kept dry and properly stored, this example appears to still have the same set of original Bridgestone tires it was delivered with when new—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 (Nissan Motorsports) rear trunk spoiler. Such a rare occurence to find an R32 GT-R with no aftermarket modifications, let alone with the rare Vspec II optional package. Victory Spec, or Vspec models were produced to celebrate the racing success of Nissan in the Group N and Group A racing series. Setting it apart from the standard R32 GT-R, the Vspec II package includes 17-inch forged BBS wheels, larger tires, retuned all-wheel drive system as well as Brembo 4-pot brake calipers. Further, this example comes optioned with a trunk mounted CD-changer with a rarely seen center console controller. Finished in Spark Silver metallic (KL0 code) with a black interior, the car presents beautifully and is in fantastic original condition.

Showing only 4,069 kilometers at the time of photographing, the car still appears as new with very little signs of wear. The engine still showing the gold coating on much of the hardware, evidence of little to no heat cycling which quickly ages these engine bays. Complete with original service books, owner's manual, key, spare tire, and some documents also speak to the lifetime of attention given to this Skyline. This R32 did receive a routine maintenance in recent time to ensure the car is ready to be operated. Rarely seen anywhere in such unmolested condition, they are particularly rare on these American shores where the Skyline-model was never sold new.
