Excellent

Performance, Road Holding & Chassis, Charisma

None really (as far as performance cars go!)

INTRODUCTION If you read my other Japanese Car reviews you will see that for some time I have wanted 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...

“50 years & counting”

published 30/09/2008

Reputation, history, power, handling, reliable

Insurance costs, expensive to maintain

This 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...

Limitlesly tunable car

Expensive replacement parts

Introduction Ask anyone from the playstation generation their favourite car on famed comsole game, gran turismo, and itll be the R33 GTR. When it comes to huge speed, poise on thr track and ability to get over 900bhp by tuning, this is the car you want. Even in real life. The nissan skyline has...

Well approaching 30yrs old and I decided this year was as good a year as any to have midlife crisis and finally get hold of the car 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...

“Nissan Skyline GT-R”

Supersonic Cruise Machine

Not many

Here's a car which works with you, and for you, but never in place of you. There's plenty of communication from the chassis, plenty of poke from the 2.6-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder engine, and electronic gizmos which let you have fun but won't allow things to get out of hand...much. Nissan...

Awesome power & performance

Miles per gallon & insurance!

Most 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...

“Best value yet”

published 30/04/2001

Performence for the Price

Nissan 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...

Expensive 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...

“A dream to drive”

published 24/06/2001

Muscly engine

Very 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...

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...

Very fast car and looks mean

uses 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...
