Nissan Skyline GT-R Era

The legendary Skyline GT-R
The Nissan Skyline GT-R is definitely lives up to its name. This is car destroyed the competition. In the late 1980′s, Nissan had a dream of going racing. Nissan need a car that handled,  could accelerate incredibly well, and a car that could out brake better than any competitor on the track.
What did Nissan do, well they developed a Skyline GT-R.. The R32 Skyline GT-R took the racing world by storm, its complete domination was unheard of at the time, to many, the car was unbeatable.

This is where the Nissan Skyline Era was born and has been going for more than 30 years!

The Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R
The R32 GT-R was introduced in 1989 and continued the very successful racing heritage of its famous GT-R predecessors with several championship titles. This car was built to fit Japanese Group A racing specifications and only hit the road, because the rules demanded its street homologation. So in reality, this is a race-car for the street.

The Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R
A heavy burden lay upon the R33′s back when it was introduced in 1995. The previous R32 GT-R had been extremely successful (almost unbeatable) and nobody thought the new GT-R could possibly improve on the R32’s performance. Surprisingly, the R33 GT-R was better than the old version in almost every way, although it too had put on some weight.
The R33 GTR kept the RB26DETT engine with an unchanged 280hp, but had a broader torque band which made the engine more flexible.
The engine’s maximum torque output had been increased by 1.5kg-m to 37.5kg-m at 4400rpm as a result of revising the computer control parameters and improving the intercooler.

The Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R
The R34 GT-R was introduced in January 1999 and bettered its predecessor’s performance in almost every department. Basically, the new car is built upon theClick for a larger R34 Nissan Skyline GTR picture improved technology of its prede-cessors. Since Nissan’s market research had found out that most people preferred the smaller R32’s nimbleness to the larger R33’s handling, the R34’s length was reduced by 7.5cm to decrease its dimensions and bring its handling more towards that of the R32. In correspondence with other technical improvements, the new R34 has thus become the best Skyline GT-R ever.

The Nissan Skyline R35 GT-R
The first Skyline GT-R model to be released in the United States, offers performance unlike any Nissan sports car in the history of the Japanese automaker. The “Skyline” moniker has officially been dropped, but the 2009 GT-R, which was delivered to its first US customers in July 2008, represents a new era for the Skyline GT-R, the most storied sports car in Japanese automotive history.
