Click above to view video after the jump

The Nissan Skyline R32 is a legend on the track and in the eyes of tuners around the world. There are legions of fans who have tweaked their R32s to go faster and move with more agility, but we don't think many have turned their precious Skylines into a Ute to obtain optimal drifts. Following the jump is video of a race-ready R32 that looks more Ford Falcon from Down Under than it does a super-tuned Nissan from the land of the rising sun. It may look beaten with an ugly stick, but it could be the only R32 that can hot lap a track and help a friend move in the same day. And it's a hella-good drifter, too. The video after the jump is English free, so if you have any Japanese language skills, let us know what they're saying in the comments section.

      this was done by NATS as a project car. its really really really old news. this would be the equivalent of cnn posting of 9-11 happening and saying "this just in, the wtc has collapse apparently".

      Looks like a base model R32 Skyline(non GTR) with R31 a RB20 DE-T I6. Certainly an less common setup with lower power potential. I'm was suprised that a lower power motor like that would drift well, but I'm sure the lighter rear end helps.

      Whatever, man. That's freakin' awesome.

      OMG the precious tail lights!!! =[ quite possibly one of the sexiest rear ends ever.

      Student:
      The idea was to make a sport compact truck based on the skyline.
      The frame, advised by our teacher, was mostly made by gut feeling.
      We did a bit of strain test and added wherever it lacked.
      In terms of the engine, a 33 turbine, (something... sorry ), cam sprocket and others.
      The budget was around 1000bucks (10,000 yen) so we couldnt do too much.

      driver:
      I would rather be driving in somewhere warm like on the coast line of California...
      hey, hot girl! than here in cold japan.
      But I guess if I went to the states in a car like this, an american girl would be really suprised.

      Students, knowing the car inside out, are suprised at the fearless driving of (name of driver )

      driver :
      The car is basically a skyline, but it is a bit soft due to the lack of the rear.
      But it doesnt matter with this type of car, its more about the feel.
