2004 Nissan Skyline 350GT coupe

The condition is amazing considering it's a 5 year old car. The previous owner really looked after it.

The guys inspecting the car at the licencing centre initially thought it was a brand new car and could not believe the features it had for the price.

I'm really impressed with it. I hadn't driven one before mine. I was just going by reviews. Although I did drive a couple of 350Zs which is close enough. It's a big step up from my old R33. Handles brilliantly and I don't miss the lag!

Thanks once again

Honda Civic Type R EK9

The EK9 Civic Type R is one of the most iconic sports cars from Japan in the 90's whose influence can still be seen today in Honda's lineup and Japanese car culture in general. Based on an EK shape Honda Civic, the Type R is more than just a base car with a hotted up engine (though it certainly has that!) with attention made to improve handling and chassis dynamics. The Type R was seam welded to improve chassis rigidity, had some weight reduction, stiffer sway bars and struts, and a helical LSD. Weight is a mere 1,070kg.

The B16B engine is a 1.6L naturally aspirated unit producing 182hp / 136kW... that's an incredible 114hp per litre! The engine produces this power via a hand ported head and uses VTEC to switch between low and high rpm cams allowing power production right up to the impressive 8,400rpm readline, sent to the front wheels via a close ration 5 speed manual gearbox. Other Type R features include red carpets and door trims with red Recaro seats, a Momo airbag steering wheel and titanium shift knob, plus different body styling.


MODEL LINEUP

Only the Type R version is eligible for import in the EK series Civic, there is also a slightly rarer Type Rx model with optional features such as power windows, keyless entry and climate control offered as standard, plus aluminium pedals and a carbon fibre centre interior panel.
