Nissan Skyline GT-R
It’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 didn’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 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.
