Nissan Skyline GT-R
Itâ€™s unfortunate that the Skyline GT-R never made it here, even if the legend did. It features all-wheel drive, a turbo six-cylinder engine and lots of potential for personalization and engine modification. These stars of Gran Turismo competed with the Supra, RX-7 and 3000GT in the 1990s, but didnâ€™t reach North America.
Making over 300 hp at its peak, the Skyline is a performance monster and a global icon for enthusiasts. We missed out on the very best that Nissan had to offer car lovers Â and the only way we can get them now is used thanks to grey-market import laws.
We finally did get the replacement for the Skyline GT-R in the United States. Simply called the GT-R, it’s quite different than the old Skyline. Longer, wider and heavier, at least the new GT-R features a progression of its predecessor’s all-wheel drive setup and maintains the turbocharged six-cylinder philosophy.
