Nissan Skyline (R32 series)

The now legendary R32 Nissan Skyline was unleashed upon an unsuspecting world in 1989 and the GTR variant was an instant classic, blasting almost anything out of the water with its incredible power and handling. In a wide variety of motorsport events the GTR dominated and is still extremely popular to this day amongst enthusiasts and tuners.

As well as the top end high performance GTR version there were also a number of more reasonably priced performance alternatives, and a 4 door was also released for those wanting easier rear seat access.

Almost all models eligible for import feature climate control, power steering, power windows, power mirrors, 4 piston front brakes, 2 piston rear brakes, LSD and HICAS 4 wheel steering.


MODEL LINEUP

GT-R
The GT-R saw the debut or refinement of a number of Nissan technologies which would be used on a number of subsequent vehicles. The RB26DETT engine was a huge leap forward producing a claimed (though in reality rumored to be higher) 208kW (280hp) and 368Nm of torque from an inline 2.6L twin turbo setup mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Power was sent to all 4 wheels and managed by the ATESSA computer system. The GT-R received a unique front bumper and rear wing compared with other models as well as an aluminium bonnet and guards for weight reduction, and the front and rear guards were pumped out to allow for wider wheels and a more aggressive stance. The interior received GT-R only seats with excellent lateral support as well as a front/rear wheel torque split meter and additional gauges fitted above the climate controls. The GT-R was 2 door only. This model is allowed for import
GT-R Nismo Edition
Lightweight edition without aircon, ABS and rear wiper, and fitted with different turbos and mild body it changes. Only 500 were made and came in gunmetal grey only. This model is allowed for import
GT-R V-Spec
The "Victory Specification" R32 GT-R was introduced in 1993 to celebrate the victory and downright dominance of the Japanese Group A and Group N touring car series. The V-Spec featured larger brake disks with Brembo calipers, 17 inch BBS wheels with 235/45/17 tyres, and a retuned ATTESSA 4WD system. 1,453 V-Spec's were produced. This model is allowed for import
GT-R V-Spec II
The V-Spec 2 was introduced in 1994 with the only difference to the V-Spec being marginally larger 245/45/17 tyres fitted. 1,303 V-Spec 2's were produced. This model is allowed for import
GTS-t
The GTS-t was still a performance version and while not quite as wild as the GT-R it carried a much cheaper price tag to match. The GTS-t features a 2,000cc turbo RWD variant of the RB series engines with 158kW (212hp) and 231Nm of torque. Only slightly different in appearance to the GT-R the GTS-t is still a popular performance vehicle and stands up well in the shadow of its bigger brother. Available in 2 door and 4 door, 5 speed manual and automatic. This model is allowed for import
GTS-4
Essentially a GTS-t (2,000cc turbo) but with 4WD, controlled by the ATTESSA 4WD system. Available in 2 door and 4 door, 5 speed manual and automatic. This model is allowed for import
GTS, GTE and GXi
2,000cc non turbo and 1,800cc carbureted (if you can believe it!) variants. These models are not allowed for import

Note: For ALL R32 variants, vehicles built from 7/1991 to 6/1992 are NOT allowed for import.

The R32 was superseded by the R33 in late 1993, however the R32 GT-R continued production alongside R33 models until very early 1995 when the R33 GT-R was released. The R32 GT-R is to this day perhaps the most famous of all modern Japanese sports cars.
