Now that early Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R are eligible to be legally imported into the States I’ve found quite a few for sale and this 1990 example with only 50k miles on the odometer looks to be one of the cleaner ones I’ve come across.
Currently located and registered in Virgina this R32 GT-R has been left fairly stock and looks awesome in the popular Gunmetal Grey with smoked 5-spoke wheels. Affectionately known as “Godzilla” the Skyine GT-R models have a cult following and are highly desirable in the United States.
Nissan used a twin-turbo 2.6L inline-6 motor that is said to produce 276 hp but that figure is known to be slightly underrated and most think a stock GT-R produces well over 300hp. Like a BMW M3, the R32 Skyline GT-R is outfitted with an expensive individual throttle bodies that help improve throttle response and increase power.
The R32 GT-R was technologically advanced for its time with a all-wheel-drive layout with a unique electronic torque split called the ATTESA E-TS that could drive wheels front to back and side to side depending on traction.
The interior of the R32 GT-R is a low point of the car with a generic looking layout that is dull and a product of its early ’90s time period. The seats look comfortable but are not supportive or sporty in look or function, by the time the R33 came out the quality of the interior was much better than this 3rd generation Skyline.
