Nissan's Skyline GT-R display is every Gran Turismo player's fantasy
Nissan put together this incredibly impressive display to show alongside the facelifted 2017 GT-R (the only car in this group not to wear the Skyline badge). The vehicles selected are immaculate, starting with the 1969. It's absolutely lovely. So is the far rarer second-generation car, a 1973. Nissan only built 197 of these beauties, compared to the nearly 2,000 first-gen GT-Rs.
The Playstation generation will be most excited about the R32, R33, and R34 on display. With the R32, we have two huge GT-R firsts – it was the first time Nissan applied all-wheel drive and a twin-turbo, six-cylinder engine to its high-performance package. That formula would stick through to today's car. The car shown here is a 1989 model, which is the first year for the third-gen car.
It's followed by a gorgeous 1995 R33. It's a looker, this, but not nearly as pretty as the R34, which builds on the look pioneered here. The R34 in question is the rare M-Spec Nür model, named for the Nürburgring and powered by an upgraded version of the RB26 engine. It's not the V-Spec II Nür from 2002, but it's still a rare, highly sought after piece from the JDM's performance glory days. Finally, representing the non-Skyline GT-R generation, we have the prototype for the R35 GT-R Nismo from 2013. Enjoy the camouflage and that frankly ludicrous wing.
We have a collection of all six cars in the gallery up top. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
