Developed for competition racing, the Skyline GT-R (R32) was fitted with a powerhouse 2568 cc inline-six DOHC, 24 valve, twin turbocharged and intercooled 280hp engine. Cutting edge technology such as Nissan’s original ATTESA E-TS variable torque-split 4-wheel drive train, and a SUPER HICAS 4-wheel steering system was used. The R32 is the 1989 version of the legendary GT-R. Outfitted with a 4WD drivetrain, it was mated to a 280hp engine and was loaded with cutting-edge design and technological innovations for its day. There was also a healthy market for customizing parts; principal among the suppliers were Nismo, Nissan’s racing arm.
