One of my absolute favourite cars.. of all time..
A car I've always wanted to own; but know that I would then never want to let go of it (and subsequently be tied to another car I 'just cant let go of'!)..
Definitely a car that's worth buying the best one you can, as its expensive to own properly (i.e, not just limp it through your ownership and onto the next poor bugger..), and too beautiful in great shape to find value in buying a nugget..
This particular car is a 1989 build - the very first of the BNR32's.
Like I mentioned in the last post - being a 1989 launched model (the R32) - it feels about as 80's as an S15 Silvia or S2000 feel '90's'.. but knowing this would have been engineered/designed/planned for more-than-the-usual time leading up to that 1989 launch, makes it all the more impressive. Nissan really gave it their all for this one..
Nice lines, great proportions, agressive looking on the road, and heaps of potential. There sure isn't much not to like!
A non nismo, non V-spec, gunmetal grey GT-R. Over 40,000 'base' GT-R's were made between 1989 and 1994, and being so well loved, there are still plenty around today.
To add to that appeal, it also looks like it has been in the state for a good 12 years or so; not a recent import.
V-Spec (I and II) cars had F/R Brembo Calipers instead, and 17" BBS wheels.
The RB26DETT that powered three generations of GT-R, spanning 13 years. A 2.6 litre, twin cam straight 6, with individual throttle bodies and twin turbo's. "206kw"... @ 6800rpm.
This particular car is currently for sale, and comes across as a bargain at $19K. There are obviously cheaper examples, but you'd be silly not to look at this one.
I want it so bad, but just cant. I'll just have to keep telling myself I'm waiting for that '94 V-Spec II N1, you know? ha
