Multi-link suspension front and rear, electronically controlled intelligent four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering, a 2.6-litre 24-valve straight-six powerhouse of an engine boosted to 280PS by a pair of ceramic turbochargers - the R32 pushed forward the boundaries of supercar engineering.
As one of Japan's most celebrated performance cars, the Nissan Skyline GT-R has developed an immense racing pedigree that includes over 200 race wins, five consecutive championship wins in the all Japanese Touring Car Championships and the unofficial lap record for a production car at the world-famous Nurbürgring.

NISMOs ultimate R33 GT-R was the 400R, so named because that was the amount of horsepower it produced, and race-trim Skylines proved reliable with 608PS.
