Here's Your Definitive Nissan Skyline R32 GT

Nissan's most powerful car the Skyline GT-R. The car is loaded with a massive 6 cylinder 3799 cc engine which runs at a power of 570 PS @ 6800 rpm giving out a maximum torque of 637 Nm @ 3300-5800 rpm. While essentially a rear-wheel-drive car, up 50 percent of engine torque can transfer to the front wheels when required; the hydraulically activated system using the ABS sensors to detect rear-wheel slip.

Though it's still recognisably a GT-R, every feature has been exaggerated to create a machine with true supercar presence. A Japanese-market performance ECU swap will be a pain if you want to run your GT-R on pump gas (Japanese fuel has a higher octane rating), but a known-brand of aftermarket intake and exhaust won't likely cause you any problems.

The R32 has even become common enough in the U.S. to inspire attention from private tuners such as Shutoko Engineering in La Puente, California, which specializes in Japanese-brand competition parts. If you want the fastest car for under $200,000, it's the Nissan GT-R.

Instead of a large, heavy engine thirsty for fuel, the Nissan GT-R is powered by an ideally sized, twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V6 that produces a prodigious 565 hp and equally immense 467 lb-ft of torque. But it still is. It still bests other supercars that cost two, three, ten times as much.

A Nissan Skyline GT-R that starred alongside Walker in 2009's Fast & Furious,” the fourth installment of the car-racing franchise, has been listed for sale at the wallet-busting price of $1.4 million, reports Yahoo Autos. But when it comes to Japanese high-performance tarmac gobblers, and the highest of automotive technology, the Nissan Skyline GT-R has no equal.

The RB26DETT engine will be familiar to Skyline fans, but only the very fanatical will know offhand that the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive system is actually the Pro” version, with an active limited-slip differential that splits torque laterally if necessary.

Any bad preconceptions I may have harboured against Nissan Skyline GT-R the GT-R before (it's not a drivers' car, yadda yadda…) are beaten off with a turbocharged kick in the guts by the 2017 car. What we can say is, despite its supercar performance, the GT-R can be one of the safer vehicles of its kind.
