RR of the Day: 1990 R32 Skyline GT-R

What more really needs to be said about today's RR of the Day? Although not the first Skyline, the R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R was the pinnacle of Japanese performance in its day and, in certain circles, the most desirable of all the GT-Rs ever produced. The rigid, lightweight coupe, coupled with the legendary 2.6-liter twin turbo inline-six (RB26DETT) and mated to the ATTESA-ETS all-wheel-drive system, allowed Nissan to dominate Group A racing in Japan. It's the dream vehicle of countless enthusiasts, and Mike Hutch of Toronto, Ontario, Canada is the lucky owner of this exemplary 1990 model.

Make the jump for more information, a couple pics, a listing of the mods and instructions on how to submit your own vehicle to become our Reader Ride of the Day. And next week, our themed RR of the Day will be back and we're looking for beaters. If you've got a decrepit ride that still manages to get your from point A to point B, we want to see it. Rusted, busted or smoking, submit it by following the directions after the jump.

Although it's appearance would suggest that he's kept the mods to a minimum, the list of upgrades shows that Mike has a keen eye for picking the right modifications that will enhance his experience behind the wheel, both on the road and during his regular trips to the track.

Thanks for allowing us to live vicariously through you, Mike and, needless to say, you picked one of the best colors that the Skyline was offered in.
