Skyline R32 GT-R - Tuned by Saurus with Robson Interior Conversion - Stunning!
For about 5 years front extensive experience sourcing these for over 16 years we've been predicting that 32 GT-R's were destined to become prized classics and now not before time - we're sadly seeing the best examples fetching increasingly higher prices in Japan, making it very difficult to buy replacement stock. It's a no-brainer that prices in other countries will rise sharply in a short space of time, especially as the US market has long been wanting to import these cars legally and as of this year as they're 25 years old, demand for early models is skyrocketing... The R32 GT-R is a playstation generation cult car and was built by Nissan to show off what it was capable of during the Japanese bubble economy and has now become a legend, sold only in Japan with a sprinkling of examples in Australia officially. Many are already dead from neglect, abuse and poor quality modifications so there are few really nice examples left, even in Japan.
This example is one of the best we've had has been beautifully preserved and considerably improved, not only externally, but to the interior too, which we have had renewed with a high quality re-trim to seats and door panel inserts by Robson Leather; Japan's most respected specialist trimmer. They have completed many top-quality re-trims on Skylines in years past and are well respected in the Skyline GT-R community of Japan.
Performance modifications: Power cosmetics have been improved for enhanced but sensible road use. Stage 1 tuning has been completed by Saurus with a ROM CPU is good for up to 0.9 bar on standard turbos. An HKS SPF Induction Kit via a Greddy Intercooler help reduce intake charge temperatures. A pair of very rare Bee-R Twin Blow Off Valves are also fitted. A Koyo Double Core Copper Radiator in combination with a SARD Expansion Tank Kit work to keep engine temps low too. Silicone Radiator Hoses by Blitz are also fitted. An ATTKD Oil Catch Tank sits on top of the ignition coilpack cover. An ATTKD Equal Length front pipe (S304) combined with an ATTKD High Flow Catalyst Apexi Exhaust Control Valve (This provides variable loudness - controllable from within the car) feed exhaust gases through a rare very desirable Trust Power Extreme full titanium exhaust. The sound this car makes as a result of this combination of improvements is different to most GT-R's. Titanium has a different natural resonant frequency to steel, etc. so the sound tends to be higher pitched with titanium systems. They're also very light! In total this car is making around 370 bhp. The timing belt was recently changed (62,928km, in April 2013).Suspension wheel improvements: The RAYS forged TE37SL's fitted are less than a year old and come with black Project Mu Racing wheel nuts. There are no scratches at all to the wheel rims, so they're close to new condition. Suspension has been replaced with Greddy Type S coilovers which will be good for use in the UK. As there are no pillow upper mounts there are no rattles at all these offer good body control, ride is a little firmer than standard but not jarring. A Cusco front tower bar is also fitted. Note the calipers have been repainted in red, to match the wheel decals.
External Cosmetic Interior Upgrades: Note the genuine Nismo bumper ducts bonnet lip. Front wings (Fenders) have been replaced with X-Treme vented items. Side skirts and rear under spoiler are by Shorin Reverse Seed. The rear end is also enhanced by a Nismo replica lip spoiler. Original option N1 headlights are also fitted. The interior of this car was recently sent to Robson Leather for a retrim, as this is something we want to promote in future as a solution for UV faded seats, which are so common on Skyline GT-R's. The front seats are full leather, the rear (Which will be barely used) are high quality vinyl, but look identical to the front. Most people would be hard pressed to tell the difference. Door rear trim inserts were also replaced - and front carries a red "Robson Leather" logo, as do the seat head rests. Bear in mind these are new, so the leather still needs to settle. They're soft, supple and comfortable. We also replaced the handbrake shift gaiters with new leather items and fitted a brand new set of Nismo floor mats. The steering wheel by Veilside and compliments the Veilside White faced instrument cluster with 320km/h speedometer (Very rare - we've seen these sell for around £400 in Japan - used!) . There is also a Blitz Water Temp Gauge Greddy Boost Gauge. The audio system in this car is something special too. High powered Alpine speakers with remote tweeters and properly sound deadened door fittings are used, in addition to a custom rear parcel shelf for upgraded speakers. There's also thick cabling and a powered sub woofer with remote control. Head unit is by Kenwood and includes a USB port for use with smart phones, etc. Audio is untested and comes free of charge with the car. This is by far the nicest interior of any 32 we've sold so far and something we hope this car's example will inspire others to do, although as it's an expensive conversion so we don't expect many will want to follow suit. When we can we intend to add this feature in cars we supply from stock... It will remain a rarity in the UK.
Further Improvements available: Although this car needs nothing added if wanted, there's still more things the new owner can do to personalise for his own GT-R perfection (We're here to help!). Note: Although it will run fine as is, as always we would recommend having a power FC fitted and mapped (We usually carry a stock of used ones precisely for this) whilst the car is at RK tuning, for enhanced running on UK fuels with improved power response. We would also recommend a high quality set of pads from Project Mu or Endless as the current ones get used up, which will help improve stopping performance greatly.

Standard equipment includes: ABS, Hicas 4 wheel steering, Atessa 4WD, Climate Control A/C, PAS, remote mirrors with retract mode, Central Locking, rear wiper, etc. This car has evidently been fastidiously maintained. The engine bay, interior, carpets, indicator stalk, pedal rubbers, oil pressure, etc.- all indicate low wear and no abuse. We found only minor cosmetic faults as follows: Body condition is pretty much perfect. No rust at all to the underside. There is a crack on the rear corner of the passenger side skirt. Also some micro-cracking to the paint on the nearside of the rear bumper. On the front lip spoiler there's a blemish too and 2 small dings on the lower half of the driver's door. Pictures show each of these faults and they will be repaired as part of full UK preparation by RK tuning. There's also a little micro cracking of paint on the n/s/f wing, but it's hardly noticeable and no plan is there to repaint this. If preferred it can be for a small additional cost. Note there is some denting to the jacking points as is usual. This is a design fault on all Skyline GT-R's, where damage occurs is the original jack is used to lift the car. Only through using hydraulic lifts always can such damage be avoided. It can only be seen when the car is in the air.
Engine Test Drive: After careful warming and extensive checks we took this car out to test can confirm it drives very well! It's got good smooth power and all signs of a well maintained car. Excellent oil pressure (( nearly 6kg/cm2 cold 2.5 kg/m2 when warm) at idle shows this is an engine in good health. Engine is strong, idle is good, even from cold super smooth too. Clutch feels as if it's got plenty of life the gearbox is notably smooth and lacking in any of the often found signs of synchromesh wear found on these cars. We found no faults to report at all. Car pulls strongly from just under 3,000 rpm with power climbing all the way through the power range and is making approximately 350 -370 bhp. The tightness of it's feel, lack of stone chips and care / money lavished on it suggests this car was used as a weekend toy.
Make no mistake - this is one of the best R32's we've had in recent years and that's not something we say lightly (If you look through our history you'll see we only select the best available examples for stock). Prices of top Skyline R32 GT-R's in Japan are continuously strenghtening so we're unlikely to find many more good examples in 2014. Supplies of good 32's at affordable prices are drying up fast now.
UK Includes all costs such as conversions, minor paintwork repairs, (See pictures and comments on slideshow), valeting, road tax and new MOT (required for registration) with 12 months comprehensive warranty.
