buy r32 gtr



After many years on the forbidden fruit list, the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R is fair game in America. No more registration nightmares. No more back door deals. No more federal agents seizing cars for the hungry jaws of the crusher. It is now legal to import and own Godzilla in the United States.


All R32 Skyline GT-Rs are right-hand drive from the factory, and Nissan built them in four variations; Standard, Nismo and N1 (which were homologation specials for racing), Vspec, and Vspec II. Nissan only built 560 Nismos (500 for showroom, 60 for racing) in early 1990 and they are easily identified by an RA in their VIN. They were built in sequence, wearing BNR32-100000 to BNR32-100560. Their slight body mods include an additional rear spoiler, called the Nismo lip, on the decklid, rocker moldings, air intakes in the front bumper, no intercooler screen, and no rear window wiper. Also, no ABS. They also have Nismo turbos with metal instead of ceramic exhaust wheels, and a cast stainless exhaust manifold. The standard GT-R and the Nismo models wore wheels measuring 168 inches with 225/50-16 tires.


The better performing GT-R Vspec hit in early 1993 and ultimately Nissan built 1453 Vspecs and 64 N1 Vspecs. Vspec models have a B on their blue plate and got modified transmission synchronizers, Brembo calipers, 178-inch BBS wheels, and a modified clutch. Nissan also removed the cooling fins from the rear differential cover and fitted larger brake rotors (12.8 inches front and 11.8 inches rear).


Rust is also common on the quarter panels in front of and behind the rear wheels, as well as at the top of the rear wheel wells. Look for bubbling in the paint. The front fenders are aluminum and may corrode around the steel bolts.


Another common corrosion area is at the base of the C-Pillar on the quarter panel. The weather stripping around the rear glass gets old and shrinks. Water gets in and pools at the base of the pillar. All-new weather stripping for the side and rear glass is about $1200 so few owners make the investment, and beat side glass rubber will scratch the window.


Another tip from Morris: The seals around the rear side glass and the glass are one piece and cost about $400 to replace on each side. Also check for dents and waves in the aluminum fenders, which are thin, and the aluminum hood which can dent easily if pressed down on.


A common modification is to install the two scoops in the front bumper from the Nismo model and to remove the screen from in front of the intercooler, as a feature of the Nismo cars, as is a small front spoiler on the leading edge of the hood.


Seats are getting very expensive, costing about $600 each for pristine examples because they are so uncommon. The seat bolsters wear down from the driver and passenger getting in and out and the grey cloth upholstery fades from the sun, turning blue. Same with the rear seats, which can fade at a different rate. Also open seams are common.


The grey carpets wear well, but check for holes in the front and rear footwells which would indicate that the car had a roll cage a one time. Installing the wrong factory steering wheel or an aftermarket wheel will cause the HICAS rear steering system to stop working so the best cars are still equipped with their original steering wheels which is a leather wrapped three spoke design. Most of these cars did not have airbags.


This engine was never sold in the United States and is unique for its dual mass airflow sensors, parallel twin-turbos (each one feeds three cylinders) and six throttle bodies. These engines also feature an iron block, an aluminum cylinder head, oil cooled pistons, coil on plug ignition and an 8000 rpm redline. Crazy stuff in 1989. The compression ratio is only 8.5:1.


There should be 10 psi of oil pressure per 1000 rpm as a rule of thumb (the oil pressure gauge is in Bar). Make sure the oil pressure rises with the rpm. If it does not it could just be a bad sender. Nissan used the same oil pressure sender in the 300ZX twin-turbos and they are notoriously bad. But it also may be the more serious problem of a leaking oil pump backing plate. These engines drive the oil pump off the front of the crank and this is common issue that affects both early and late crankshaft design cars (before and after August 1991).


Another known problem is broken ceramic turbo blades, which are light, but brittle. If a previous owner has run too much boost (0.7 bar or 9-10 psi is stock) or has too often ridden the rev limiter the turbo wheel will break and then you have a naturally-aspirated GT-R.


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. California residents will have to pay $10,000 for the car to the taken to a lab, emissions tested, and fixed to pass the testing with larger catalytic converters and other modifications.


Toprank sends its cars to G&K Auto Conversion in Santa Ana, California, which is the only lab to have both California and direct import certification. But this is a one-time deal. Once the car is fitted with the sticker that says it is California compliant it is deemed so forever. However, it will still need to pass smog every two years like every other 1976 and newer car registered in the state.


We have been dealing particularly with sports and performance cars, including all models of Nissan Skylines since the establishment of our company. As of today, we have sold more than 700 Skylines worldwide. We have extensive knowledge regarding the purchasing, maintenance and pre-shipment inspection of these cars. We put a significant emphasis in making sure the body is rust free and ensuring the car engine and transmission are in very good working order. We are aware that the US market is swarmed with rusty R32 Skylines. It is Japan Partner's commitment to our clients that they can choose from our stocks and be assured that they are rust-free units.


This was in part thanks to its battery of driver-assisting technology. Under its taut, muscular exterior sat an all-wheel-drive system, featuring a computer-controlled hydraulic centre differential and a limited-slip rear differential, called 'ATTESA E-TS' - and the Nissan also packed a four-wheel steering system. The result was a car that could corner at almost comical rates, carrying speed and putting its power down where others would simply disappear off into the hedgerow.


It had the punch to match its sports car and supercar-worrying cornering speed, too. Its 2.6-litre straight-six engine benefitted from parallel twin turbochargers and put out a claimed 280hp and 260lb ft. This, in conjunction with its all-wheel-drive system, granted a 0-62mph time of just 5.6sec. Flat out, the 1,430kg coupe could clip 155mph.


It wasn't just on the road that the Skyline proved its prowess, mind; in its home country alone it won four touring car championships in a row. In Australia, the car's outright domination in Group A racing led to it being dubbed 'Godzilla'.


Interest in the car, later simply referred to as the 'R32', remains high even to this day - in part due to its prevalence in gaming series such as Gran Turismo and the success of the current generation of GT-R. The popularity of the R32 is still so high, in fact, that Nissan has even begun remanufacturing heritage parts in order to ensure the survival of its earlier GT-R.


You've some options if you're considering an older Skyline, too; although the R32 was never officially sold in the UK, numerous examples have been imported - including standard models, the homologation special NISMO variant and higher-performance V-Spec I and II editions.


Buying a Skyline isn't the decision of a moment, though, given that these are rapidly ageing high-performance cars - and ones prone to several issues. You may see the odd GT-R for sale for around 15,000 but you need to tread carefully, as rust and mechanical problems can quickly result in significant bills.


Consequently, it's often best to spend upwards on 25,000 on a car that's been refreshed and well maintained so you can get on with the business of simply enjoying a Skyline at its best. Fortunately, with numerous specialists dotted throughout the country, it shouldn't be hard to find a car that meets your requirements - but, in any case, read on to find out just what you should look out for.


One common issue, which won't come as a surprise, is that of corrosion. The arches, sills, front strut tops, main rails, bulkhead, rear wings behind the spats and the rear screen surround can suffer. In short, crawl over any potential purchase and look for any signs of damage - as properly sorting a rusting R32 can entail serious expenditure. 041b061a72
