1991 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R

Lot No. 127

Auctioned on Saturday, November 5, 2016

Sold for $ 44,000

  • 2.6-liter, 280-hp twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine
  • Five-speed manual transmission
  • Right-hand drive
  • Full dealer documentation and service records from new
  • Jet Silver Metallic (paint code: KG1)


Due to importation rules, foreign cars must wait 25-years to be imported to the United States. Because of this factor and the extreme desirability of this Japanese sports car; they are an immediate collector item in the states. Once these rare Skylines enter into the U.S. market the prices and collectability climb dramatically.

Nissan introduced the eighth-generation Skyline in 1989. Among the various models offered under the Skyline marquee was the desirable GT-R (R32). Its powerful twin-turbo engine, unique ATTESA-E-TS (Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All-Terrain – Electronic Torque Split) all-wheel-drive system and Super HICAS all-wheel steering system (which allowed the rear wheels to steer at a maximum of one-degree), made the GT-R a true force to be reckoned with on the racetrack, leading it to earning the nickname “Godzilla.”

This particular Skyline was manufactured in May of 1991; and first sold on May 29, 1991 by the Nissan/Prince Akita dealership. On May 20, 1992, at 1,025-km, the factory 180-km/hr speedometer changed to a 260-km/hr NISMO speedometer. This change is said to be a popular upgrade and an available option through Nissan dealerships. This R32 was serviced at the same Nissan/Prince Akita dealership it was purchased at, by the same single owner, until it was exported to the U.S. in May of 2016.

The 1991 Skyline GT-R (R32) on offer is a true time capsule that is said to be an unrestored example. As an imported car, the GT-R features a right-hand driving configuration. The car is presented in Jet Silver Metallic (paint code: KG1) and rides on factory wheels. This Skyline is reported to be one of 1,620 produced. Powering the GT-R is a 2.6-liter, 280-hp twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine which is paired to a five-speed manual transmission. Power equipment on the car includes windows, steering and brakes. The interior is completed in gray featuring bucket seats and air conditioning. The owner reports the car to have a mere 18,000 kilometers on the odometer which makes this car arguably one of the lowest-mileage examples available on the market.

Included with the GT-R is full dealer documentation; and service records since the Skyline was new. This is an excellent opportunity to own a desirable piece of Japanese automotive history.

Following is the service history supplied by the current owner.
