Skyline GT-R (R33) Le Mans Edition.
This rare example of a Le Mans GT-R R33 was sourced by Newera Imports - to order, for our customer in Spring of 2003. When sourced it was low genuine mileage and of grade 4. From correspondence, we can confirm the owner has looked after this car fastidiously and had modifications regular maintenance carried out in the UK by Skyline specialists. So delighted has he been with the GT-R we supplied, he's now ordered another newer replacement performance car through Newera Imports, to replace this Skyline. Testament to the quality of car supplied!
The description below is as written by the owner:
1996 Nissan Skyline R33 GTR Lemans limited edition.
Finished in Lemans blue with 18” white gt split rim alloys.
265/35/18 low profile tyres, the rear ones being nearly brand new.
Carbon fibre rear spoiler.
12 months MOT, 6 months tax.
Electric windows and mirrors.
Climate control and air conditioning.
Driver and passenger airbags, 4channel ABS, central locking, power steering.
Standard Nissan stereo radio cassette, Kenwood speakers mounted on rear parcel shelf.
Category 2 immobilizer fitted in Japan.
62500miles from new.
Modifications carried out in the UK are as follows:
Trust twin cone induction kit.
Custom made 3” downpipes from each turbo feeding into custom made stainless steel 3” exhaust through to small rear silencer and 5”tailpipe. There are no cats or midway resonator pipe, so this car is loud! A low rumble on idle which changes to a roar on full chat - music to the ears!
Abbey Motorsport 1 bar ECU mapped for 97ron UK fuel
This car made 334hp at the wheels on Abbeys dynopack so is around 400hp at the flywheel. Dyno prints are available.
The interior has had the following modifications:
Tims boost gauge is mounted on the right corner of the dash.
Custom made to fit chequerplate footwells on passenger and drivers side. Race style alloy drilled foot pedals and alloy gearknob brighten up the interior. Since new, this has been a non-smokers car and the seats are all in excellent condition
The car has been maintained by an enthusiast and service history is available from Japan and the uk. The cambelt was changed by RB motorsport at the required interval
The engine runs HKS iridium sparkplugs. Oil changes every 4 to 5000 miles with Millers fully synthetic motorsport oil.
The rear window and rear quarter glass is tinted, this is standard from Nissan on this model.
The car has the following minor cosmetic marks:
A very small pin dent to the drivers rear wing above the wheel arch, some stone chips to the front splitter (easy to put right). The rear spoiler has had a carbon fibre look film applied to the top to cover a blemish in the carbon fibre wing which cannot be repaired. This does not affect the looks of the wing at all and was proffessionally applied.
There are some scuff marks to the wheel rims, but again these are minor.
The car has been well looked after and not raced or thrashed, most of its miles have been to and from work on motorways.
Only 98 of these cars were made and only a handful are in the uk. A very rare car in great condition.
Le Mans GT-R models are very rare and never usually available in the condition this example is in! This car is certified as being of very high quality and originally supplied by Newera Imports as an immaculate example during Spring of 2003.
