THE AUCTION IS UNDER PROXY BIDDING
1990 Nissan Skyline (R32) GT-R NISMO
This 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo is an immaculately-prepared and restored example of a Japanese sports car icon. It is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.6-litre six-cylinder RB26DETT engine outputting over 206kW/353Nm to all four wheels. A five-speed manual transmission is the only gearbox available on the R32 GT-R, which allows it to sprint from zero to 100km/h in 5.3 seconds. This example’s odometer currently shows 89,302km since new.
Though not the first Nissan to wear a GT-R badge, the R32 GT-R certainly revived the nameplate by kickstarting the Japanese brand’s era of performance. Most people know about the Nissan GT-R’s involvement in the Australian Touring Car Championship, but fewer know just how much impact it had on the local Japanese touring car circuit. The R32 GT-R Nismo is a one-of-560 limited edition variant introduced in February 1990 to homologate several changes required for the GT-R to race in Group A. These changes included larger turbochargers, aerodynamic ducts, deeper rear spats, an additional boot lip spoiler, and grippier Bridgestone tyres. Overall the GT-R Nismo is lighter, more aerodynamic, and features more boost over the standard R32 GT-R.
The R32 GT-R Nismo was only available in Gun Grey metallic and this car is upholstered with a black leather and Alcantara interior. This car comes with Nismo seat covers. Over the standard GT-R, the Nismo scores a Nismo badge on the rear of the car, though few other visual differences are noted on Nismo versions. It also rides on a set of 16-inch alloy wheels finished in gunmetal grey wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza tyres.
This stock-standard car first started life in Japan before being imported to Australia in May 2020. It was restored to factory specification before being shipped over and has never been registered in Australia. Since coming over it has remained in storage as part of a large JDM collection. It was last serviced in Japan before being imported.
Exterior condition is described as – and looks – near immaculate. There are no noticeable scratches or dents in its Gun Grey metallic paint which reflects light and glistens beautifully. The body is as stock as it was delivered new, so parts like the additional aerodynamic vents remain on the car and show in fine condition. This car was chosen by the current owner from Japan for its originality and authenticity, and has been respectfully cared for ever since arriving in Australia. All four wheels are unmarked of curb damage and the four tyres show a good amount of tread.
The interior presents incredibly well for its age, with next to no signs of use observed inside the cabin. No discolouration or staining can be seen on any of the fabrics, which all look to be in great condition. The seats retain their original shape and the carpets are clean and undamaged. An aftermarket Pioneer head unit takes place of the original.
A suite of accompanying service manuals and importation documentation will be supplied with this car.
