1994 Nissan Skyline GT
After many years on the forbidden fruit list, the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R is fair game in America. Nissan too has a product and a very special one at that, the Godzilla of cars, the GT-R. Whereas here in Oz, we see the R33 GT-R's as the R32's fatter and less successful sibling, around the world, it's the R33 that's usually perceived as the hero car. Toward the end of my time with this Japanese monster in robot clothing, I get a text from my brother asking if he could go for a spin in the GT-R.
And you really are paying for performance in this car, as its standard features list includes little you can't get in any number of much less-expensive cars, like adaptive LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, navigation, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Low mileage is the rule in the Japanese home market, especially for a weekend driver like the GT-R. There may be times when you'd like to attract less attention to the GT-R's potent exhaust note. The Nissan GT-R is one of the most iconic sports cars in the history of automobiles across the world.
Touting a raucous twin-turbo V6 pumping out 565 horsepower and mated to an advanced all-wheel-drive system, the 2018 Nissan GT-R has earned its standing as one of the world's great performance machines. The 2018 Nissan GT-R is a high-performance sport coupe.
Many believe that a supercar should only be driven on a perfect day, on a Nissan Skyline GT-R perfect stretch of road, and only by an expert driver. As well as a new look, the GT-R50 features updated GT3-spec performance parts under its newly crafted bodywork. And that is the human soul in the Nissan GT-R®, a supercar that could never be created in a factory that only pursues rationality.
Hold on tight because the GT-R's combo of turbo power and all-wheel drive will stretch your neck in the corners. A stylish Black Edition model has been added to the lineup, the V6 pumps out even more horsepower and the GT-R's exterior design is more aerodynamic than ever.
This generation of the GT-R has many accolades, winning 29 races from 29 starts at the Japanese Touring Car Championship, taking the series title from 1989 to 1993. It's a flexible car that doesn't get upset in urban conditions like some supercars do.
