1989 Nissan Skyline GT-R

The 1989 Nissan Skyline GT-R, also known as the R32 model, is one of the most iconic sports cars to come out of Japan. It was introduced in August 1989 and was built to dominate the touring car racing circuit.

Under the hood, the R32 GT-R is equipped with a 2.6-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six engine, known as the RB26DETT. It produces 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all four wheels through a five-speed manual transmission and Nissan’s advanced all-wheel-drive system (ATTESSA E-TS).

The R32 GT-R was a technological marvel for its time, featuring advanced features like electronically controlled dampers, Super HICAS four-wheel-steering system, and an advanced aerodynamics package.

In terms of performance, the R32 GT-R was capable of reaching 0-60mph in just 5 seconds and had a top speed of around 155mph. It quickly became one of the most popular sports cars in Japan and around the world, thanks to its performance, reliability, and affordability compared to other high-end sports cars.

The R32 GT-R also became a legend in the world of motorsports, winning numerous touring car championships throughout the 1990s. Its popularity continues to this day among car enthusiasts and collectors, with many still seeking to import and own one of these iconic machines.
