Vehicle Original VIN : BNR32303026
This car has quite the story, as it was brought stateside before they were even legal. But this very rare JDM has recently been made fully legal using it’s original factory VIN number and cowl tag which is all fully documented for the next new owner. You may remember there was a second round of horsepower wars in the 1990s, this time with Japanese automakers competing to build their versions of the ultimate performance car. Sports cars like this range-topping 1993 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec were putting out impressive horsepower numbers that were matched by advanced suspensions, powerful brakes, and drop-dead gorgeous styling. Nicknamed ‘Godzilla’, the GT-R was specifically designed by Nissan to homologate the Skyline for Group A racing, and the V-Spec upgraded version that was introduced in 1993 is an ultra-rare car that is widely considered to be one of the greatest performance cars ever built. This particular beauty shows only 101,964KM (or 63,357 actual miles) and features an upgraded drivetrain that boasts north of 650WHP, a big upgraded turbo, and killer good looks that make it one of the more impressive examples on the Western market today. Why should this R32 be on your short list? First of all, it’s regarded as one of the all-time great Japanese cars ever built. Secondly, it’s been tastefully upgraded yet loses none of the spirit that made these cars such instant legends. It’s beautifully finished in its original code KL0 – Spark Silver Metallic and carries all the beautiful Skyline GT-R design cues that made these 3rd generation cars so popular: the sculpted bumpers, vented front fascia, muscular fenders, sloping hood, abrupt rear window, the sharp angle between the deck lid and rear fascia, and those iconic headlamps and taillamps. Compared to the subdued wedge design of the previous generations, these cars were absolute jaw-droppers the moment they hit the streets. This particular Godzilla takes the already killer look and steps it up even further with a carbon fiber Seibon hood, front lip, and ducktail spoiler, along with the exposed upgraded intercooler in the bottom grille and a set of bright CCW 17-inch wheels. The paint absolutely glistens and the bodywork is laser-straight and the fantastic shape of this Nissan has aged extremely well. Fit and finish are typical old-school Nissan high-quality, with exacting gaps, a precise feel to the doors, and everything seals up properly. The paint has a shine that matches the car’s pedigree, and anywhere you go, this monster draws a crowd of enthusiasts young and old. Nobody runs from this Godzilla. Sporty cloth buckets still look comfortable and show commensurate wear despite living in a car that could easily cause you to soil yourself. Simple yet effective inside, the ergonomics are spot-on, with an instrument cluster full of bright, easy-to-read gauges and a wrap-around cockpit feel that emphasizes the car’s sporty profile. With all the upgrades to the drivetrain, the instruments needed some augmenting, so an NRG hub, Apexi FC Commander tuner, Greddy turbo timer and AEM boost, fuel/air gauges were added to give the driver a full accounting of everything going on under the hood. Factory options included power windows, locks, mirrors, and A/C, which still blows cold, and the stock radio was upgraded to an Eclipse double din touchscreen head unit that features all the modern goodies. A Greddy steering wheel anchors the cockpit, while the leather-wrapped shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission falls easily to hand so the driver can concentrate on the miles whizzing by. The backseat area is all stock, and while the upholstery on the seats, door panels, and carpets throughout the cabin are original, the inside of this GT-R is still very presentable and comfortable. There’s even a bit of trunk space out back, which is wild when you think that a borderline super-car like this still has plenty of space for your luggage and friends. Under the hood is wear this Godzilla roars, where the 2.6L Inline 6 (RB26DETT) motor has been upgraded with a big, T04R single turbo. Built and tuned by GS Motorsports, the list of drivetrain mods is extensive, including a Power FC ECU, HKS cams, Splitfire coil pack, and Greddy performance parts that include upgraded cam gear, timing belt, pulleys, and a Greddy titanium exhaust, just to name a few. It’s been tuned for E85 gas and boasts around 650hp at the wheels (and that’s with it still set at low boost!), which means this AWD coupe is going to challenge pretty much everything on the street and track. It looks great under the hood too, with a Mines strut bar, Gretty intake manifold, custom catch can and cam cover, along with an aluminum radiator that all add sparkle to the engine bay. The 5-speed manual transmission shifts cleanly through all the gears thanks to the help of an Exedy triple-plate clutch kit, and an electronic front differential locker was installed to switch this baby into a RWD drifter with a flip a switch. Yeah, it’s fast, and boy does it handle well. The sport suspension works with K-sport coilovers, and with power steering and powerful Brembo four-wheel disc brakes assisted by ABS, you can hit the corners with confidence. Finishing off the aggressive import look is a bright set of 17×9.5 CCW rims wrapped with 245/45/17 Nitto performance radials that are downright grippy. A true icon, if you grew up during the Japanese supercar wars, you know this is the one to own. With less than 1,500 GT-R V-Spec I units ever built, this Godzilla is quickly shooting up the list of most valuable imports to own. We have a strong feeling that we’ll be looking back at our list price in a couple years to reminisce about the time these cars were still within reach.
