After many years on the forbidden fruit list, the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R is fair game in America. A guttural six-cylinder howl overlaid with comical levels of turbo whistle and chatter announces the arrival of the fifth member of this tight-knit sect, as an R32 Skyline GT-R glides smoothly into view and wends its way down the sliproad towards the meeting point.
Our test car is the last and perhaps finest of the R32 breed - a 1994 full-fruit V-Spec II, sporting factory Brembos, with juicy Nismo 17s in lieu of the original BBS wheels, super-wide 255mm Bridgestone RE010s, Nismo exhaust and instrumentation.

That motor is the famous RB26DETT, introduced in this generation Skyline in 1989, and packing a four-valve head and parallel twin-turbochargers to produce well over the advertised 276 horsepower (to comply with the famous Gentleman's Agreement limiting horsepower between Japanese manufacturers).
Only five master craftsmen in the world are allowed to hand-assemble the GT-R's engine and affix a plaque carrying their name. The GT-R®'s rear fascia has been extended at the sides to accelerate air away from the back of the bumper, helping to pull hot gases away, to cool the exhaust.
Edmunds' 2012 Nissan GT-R review also states, "The triple threat of performance, technology and price means there's pretty much nothing like the 2012 GT-R." Under the hood, Phoenix Nissan shoppers will find a fierce VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 that now produces 530 horsepower and Nissan Skyline GT-R 448 pound-feet of torque.
Get in a Porsche 911 or Audi R8 and there's nothing necessarily easy about a track day, yet they are both far more enjoyable to drive, even if your lap times are a few seconds behind the GT-R's. According to THE-LOWDOWN, this specific Z-Tune Silver” R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo Z-Tune build #001 has already received offers exceeding $750,000 AUD, or $575,000 USD.
For the interior space, the cabin feels ergonomic, with much easier ingress and egress as compared to other luxurious cars. Today's R35 Nissan GT-R might have dropped the Skyline nameplate, but its ancestry is easy to trace. Unlike the old Skylines, the GT-R is not based on a more sedate Nissan.
