Nissan Skyline GT-R 1989 – SPRZEDANY

Nissan Skyline GT-R przez swoją niepowstrzymaną moc zyskał przydomek “Godzilla”. Japońska legenda samochodów z tabliczką GT-R w 1989 roku narodziła się w nowej odsłonie, jako generacja R32. Tak jak i w poprzednich modelach słowem kluczowym był motosport, a dokładnie spełnienie wymogów wyścigowej Grupy A. Do realizacji zadania użyto sześć cylindrów, dwie turbiny, napęd na cztery koła i silnik RB26DETT DOHC produkujący wyjściowo 280 KM. Wystawiony na aukcji egzemplarz to rzadko spotykany okaz, który uniknął jakiegokolwiek tuningu. Do dziś zachowany został z przebiegiem jedynie 23360 kilometrów. BNR32 to bez wątpienia ikona swojej generacji, a ten okaz będzie wspaniałym dopełnieniem każdej kolekcji samochodów nastawionych na osiągi. RM Sothebys wycenia go na 50 – 70 tys. dolarów, ale czy przekroczy ten pułap dowiemy się 20 stycznia 2017. Samochód licytowany był bez ceny minimalnej i sprzedany na aukcji za 60 500 dolarów.

The first year of the “Godzilla” GT-R

The long-running GT-R nameplate from Nissan reached its modern format with the introduction of the R32 generation in 1989. Like the previous generations, motorsport was the key intention behind the GT-R’s production. Six cylinders, two turbos, and four-wheel drive all appeared together first on this model. The legendary 2.6-liter RB26DETT engine was developed by Nissan’s engineers to compete in the 4,500-cubic centimeter class of Group A.

In race trim, the engine produced more than 600 horsepower, so a highly advanced all-wheel-drive system, dubbed ATTESSA E-TS, was in charge of putting that immense power on the road. Drawing inspiration from Porsche’s 959, this system allowed variable power to be delivered between the front and rear axles depending on traction conditions. The engineers avoided understeer by limiting the car to rear-wheel drive at corner exit and thus maintained the pure, predictable handling dynamics of the chassis. This combination of power and traction allowed the R32 GT-R to achieve incredible success in racing. The car won all 29 races of the Japanese touring car championship, the 1991 Spa 24 Hours, and two consecutive wins at Bathurst in 1991 and 1992. The GT-R established itself as an unstoppable force, and henceforth, competitors and fans alike have bestowed it the nickname “Godzilla.”

Off the track, the GT-R attained mythical status as a tuning platform. Massive aftermarket support allowed enthusiast owners to squeeze incredible power out of the RB26. At the time, the major Japanese auto manufacturers upheld a gentleman’s agreement that limited the advertised horsepower on all vehicles produced domestically to 276. As a result, the factory power ratings on the GT-R reflect this. Stock cars, however, will show true outputs to be in the 300 horsepower ballpark. Further tuning and modification could produce much, much more.

Production on the R32 lasted from 1989 until 1994, and several iterations were introduced throughout this generation. First to come was the Nismo variant in 1990 and later N1 and V.Spec models continued on the developments by further reducing weight and updating the car’s all-wheel-drive system. The first-year R32 offered here is a completely stock example with only 23,360 original kilometers. It was recently imported from Japan, now with a clean U.S. title, and is presented in exceptional original condition.

The BNR32 is without a doubt an icon of its generation. And as the import exclusion has recently expired, the GT-Rs are becoming legal within the United States. While many are entering the market, few, if any, have never been modified. This original, low-mileage GT-R is an exceptional example for any collection of important modern performance automobiles.
