The Nissan Skyline GT-R
The Nissan Skyline GT-R is a sports car produced between 1969 and 1972 under the model code KPGC10. It garnered tremendous success in local Japanese touring car racing, and was revived in 1989 as the BNR32 (“R32”) Skyline GT-R.
Nicknamed ‘Godzilla’ by the Australian motoring publication ‘Wheels,’ the R32 GT-R has won numerous races, including the Japanese JTCC Group A Series for four consecutive years. The R32 became the flagship of Nissan performance, and was named the “only true Japanese contribution in the line of supercars by Top Gear.” It also has become notable figure in pop culture, appearing in movies like the ‘Fast and the Furious’ series and in different video games like ‘Need for Speed’ and ‘Gran Turismo.’
