Vehicles of various models have always been popular in movies. Whilst the Sierras light up their rear tyres in laptime-killing wheelspin, the Skylines just grip and grip and grip, maximising the RB26's huge firepower to catapult them down the straights. Nissan GT-R price, as vastly expected, is Rs. 1.99 Crore (Ex-Showroom) in the Indian market.
But in among all the Sunnys, Sentras, Maximas and Patrols, there were gems, I mean million-dirham cars, just boxed in there, in among all the four-wheeled riffraff, amazing little pieces of Japanese automotive history that even noted Datsun collectors like US comedian and racer Adam Carolla can't lay claim to. What intrigued me most though was a tip about an original GT-R, which would make Freek the owner of one of just a few hundred coveted first-generation cars ever made and likely the only one on the African continent.
Like the rest of the car, the GT-R's cabin is anything but conventional. While the Drag Battle includes vehicles of all driveline and chassistypes, the GT-R Challenge is an even more exclusive field of competition. In all, there are features that will add fun to your drives and also get your pulse racing every time you step into the revamped Nissan beauty.
In 48 states you should be able to register a Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R as easily as a new 370Z, but Hawaii can be more difficult because of state safety regulations. Other premium and standard equipment include 20-inch RAYS forged-alloy wheels, Nissan-Brembo braking system, Bilstein Damptronic suspension system, and a titanium exhaust system that round up the performance end of the list.
Tuners also seized on Nissan Skyline GT-R the GT-R's capabilities, and engines wound up to over 1,200hp propelled cars down drag strips at hitherto unseen rates. The GT-R is an absolutely ferocious car and one that's capable of putting supercars with much more exotic badges on their bonnets to shame.
The V-Spec II car became the ultimate Nissan Skyline of the time, but the limited run of 500 Nismo models meant they became real unicorns. Most importantly check to see if the parts are there, including the rack by the rear differential, hydraulic lines and its brain under the engine's intake collector on the driver's side.
The GT-R Challenge and Drag Battle, held in Australia, draw the highest horsepower, street registered cars together to compete in a shootout-style elimination event. A jarring supercar quality that's been ironed out of so many modern high-performance cars.
