Rocket from the Land of the Rising Sun Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesPerformance, Road Holding & Chassis, Charisma

DisadvantagesNone really (as far as performance cars go!)

"...to own and drive a Nissan Skyline, badly ... very badly indeed infact. So much so that I would literally have dreams about owning one; and then I would wake up in the morning assured of the certain realities that (a) I didn't own one and (b) that I would have to accept that it was just a nice dream and that I would have to enjoy it just as that ... i.e. "in my dreams". Well ... now the time has at last come to stop dreaming ... because in October ..." Read review

50 years & counting Review with images

AdvantagesReputation, history, power, handling, reliable

DisadvantagesInsurance costs, expensive to maintain

"...is the review of the Nissan Skyline GTR but there is an interesting story that goes with it dating back over 50 years. After the Second World War Japan's industries were left decimated & car makers were forced to produce commercial vehicles as no one had any money to buy cars. In the late 1940s Japan slipped into a recession with high inflation, there was high taxes linked to motor cars. Of the commercial vehicles that were produced they weren't ..." Read review

Sell that suberu and get behind one of these

AdvantagesLimitlesly tunable car

DisadvantagesExpensive replacement parts

"...Even in real life. The nissan skyline has become a super fast urban legend; a mega fast coupe with four wheel drive and a powerful 2.6 litre twin turbo'd 6 cylinder engine that could be tuned till it begs for mercy. Despite the fact that the R33 was only released 5 years ago, you dont have to have a tv screen to own one. This is because prices can be as low as £15,000 for an import. This is great value considering all you get, in adition, this japanese ..." Read review

Nissan Skyline R33 GTS-T a review

Advantagesfantastic performance, very reliable, stunning timeless looks, affordable to drive.

Disadvantagesbritains speed limits and jelly mould cars getting in my way!

"...I've always wanted. A Nissan Skyline. After having owned it for six months I thought I'd share my thoughts with other potential buyers of an R33 which is the most popular and more importantly affordable model with my generation so grab a coffee, sit back and see what you think. I've researched into these cars for over a year now and fell in love with them since getting my grubby mitts on one in GranTurismo on the playstation1five years ago and ..." Read review

Nissan Skyline GT-R

AdvantagesSupersonic Cruise Machine

DisadvantagesNot many

"...Nissans have imported. However, Nissan only imported 100 of these babies into this country...but it would hold its money for longer. Overall, driving a GT-R is, lets say, an experience...and if you get the chance to drive one, take it. It handles exceptionally well and sticks to our roads like glue. You feel super safe with the comfy seats and immediate response from the steering. This really is a high performance car and worth every penny if ..." Read review

Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R VSPEC

AdvantagesAwesome power & performance

DisadvantagesMiles per gallon & insurance!

"...people who know what a Nissan Skyline is, know its reputation. These beasts (and they really are beasts of cars) have a specification that makes almost all other production cars cringe. Take a look (standard spec - these cars are easily tunable to 600BHP!): 280BHP (that's the max. power a production car in Japan can have!) 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds DOHC 4 Valves Twin Turbos 2.6 litre straight 6 To make the picture a little more accurate: - ..."

Best value yet

AdvantagesPerformence for the Price

DisadvantagesNissan don't sell them in the UK

"I bought a M Reg Nissan Skyline GT-S last year and I have to say it has been a real pleasure to own. I spotted it in the autotrader web-site, went down and met the car importer who had just rolled it off the boat from Japan, got inside and fell in love instantly. From the moment the key is in the ignition you have this lovely throaty power roar, all 230 brake horses stampeding in unison. The car is a non-turbo 2.5 litre model, rear wheel drive, ..."

Skyline R32 R33 R34 GT-R V spec bargain of the century

AdvantagesMega Performance ultimate Q car cheap to buy very tempting!

DisadvantagesIts only a Nissan complicated expensive to run high insurance

"...Japan ever heard of a Nissan Skyline prior to 1990? Probably no,neither had I. Best car in the world at that time in 1990,my choice Ferrari F40,my pal Yuji laughed and said Nissan Skyline and all the Japanese guys agreed.How can that be possible,I had never heard of it? All I knew was the Ferrari F40 was a jet fighter on wheels that could push upto 200 mph plus and 0-60 in around 4 secs,a true thoroughbred racer.Tricky handling maybe but not much ..." Read review

Nissan Skyline GT-R R32

AdvantagesPerformance i.e. 0-60mph in 4.9secs as standard, fun factor, tuning options

DisadvantagesExpensive to fix, mpg, interior

"My first review!... it shall be about something that gave me ALOT of pleasure and some headaches... this is my experience and not drawn from other reviews. I was lucky enough to own an olde-worldy 1992 GT-R in 2006 for 1 year. She was black, a Cat D damaged car (that had been repaired - not a very good repair). It was fairly standard (for a Skyline), apart from a 'stage 1 chip' (no proof of this), an aftermarket s/s exhaust, aftermarket airfilter, ..." Read review

Nissan Skyline GTR

AdvantagesYou will confidently know nothing out there can beat you.

DisadvantagesYou will pass everything except the petrol station.

"I own a 1996 skyline gtr r33 ( said she smugly !) It is without a doubt the most amazing car I am ever likely to own. The engine has recently been rebuilt with fully forged engine internals which allow it to cope with much higher boost ( 600bhp). You can mess about and modify them to your hearts content! As a woman I have found it very adaptable. I can pick up the kids in it or race at santa pod in it! Internally they can look a little boring but ..." Read review

A dream to drive

AdvantagesMuscly engine

DisadvantagesVery expensive

"The Skyline GT-R is just awesome. It has more gizmos than the Starship Enterprise! I think the best bit is the computer game style display on the dash. It checks up on turbo boost, throuttle opening, exhaust temperature and many other things which are downloadable to PC for graphs and statistical analysis. Its electronically controlled, actively suspensioned four-wheel-drive chassis is more clever than you can imagine. The car drives superbly with ..." Read review

Nissan Sky-line R32 GT-R

AdvantagesVery fast car and looks mean

Disadvantagesuses a lot of petrol, parts can be xpensive

"This car is awsome and is a car most people would call the ultimate car. It is Japanese so is very reliable and with twin turbo's goes realy well. There may be a problem finding parts as there are not too many around and most insurance companies will not recoginise ithis model but persivere. But I think over all it is the ultimate driving car. Look for Imported low milage cars. As with all cars imported from Japan the miles are low and they are usually ..." Read review

Advantagesmean fast and good looking

Disadvantagesprice

"...to collage there is a nissan garage and honestly there must be about 7-8 of these huge cars with hundreds of wild horses under their bonets. they really do catch my eye. although all i can do is dream about driving one because to get insured on them you need to be at least 21 years of age. as well as the age there is the price to consider these brand new are at least 20 grand but if you have got the money why not. the car can be in a veriaty of colours ..."

Advantagesfast baby

Disadvantagesno cup holders

"...like. The interior is typically nissan bland but at least there aren't loads of cubby holes and cup holders. Even nissan the masters of cup holders couldnt design a cup holder not to decorate the cock pit with nescafe when I floor this beast wacking out 300 brake horse power and you can find ones which are modified to put out 500. You have to import this baby from Japan but they are right hookers aswell. ..." Read review
