A 1988 RNU12 Nissan Bluebird SSS R.
The top-spec performance variant of the U12 Nissan Bluebird, released in late 1987.
Power was sent to all wheels through Nissan's Attesa AWD system - the Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All-terrain - the first Nissan to run this system, and from this model had found its way into other Nissan's shortly after.
By late 1989, the CA18DET was replaced by the 2litre SR20DET; at which point it was also interestingly the first of Nissan's cars to run this engine.
Cool car anyway.
I'd find a new RR mudflap, an airbox, some fresh gravel tyres, remove that rear muffler - then get it out on some dirt roads!
