Nissan's Skyline GT-R heritage spans back half a century, with
their first Skyline GT-R produced from 1969 to 1972. Enjoying
legendary success in local Japanese touring car racing, the GT-R
name was a symbol for success. In 1973 there was a brief production
run of second-generation cars before the GT-R name was ushered away
for almost 16 years. It would return again in the form of the 1989
R32 Skyline GT-R. A complete and utter destruction of its racing
rivals in Japan's Group A racing earned it the nickname "Godzilla."
It also found success in the Australian Touring Car Championship in
1991 and 1992, cementing itself in automotive history as one of the
most dominant Japanese production cars to ever race.
The R32 GT-R was a technological automotive marvel. Playing host to
a level of sophistication that up to that point had only been seen
on the Porsche's ground-breaking 959, the GT-R impressed in all
aspects. An electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system with
advanced torque vectoring worked in tandem with 4-wheel steering,
known as Super HICAS. A twin-turbocharged 2.6-liter engine produced
an "advertised" 276 horsepower due to a pact between Japan's car
makers, while in reality the engines produced closer to 300
horsepower. With the engines being designed for racing, it was
relatively easy to tune the engines well beyond those numbers.
These advances allowed the cars to be just as nimble as their
predecessors despite being a larger car.
The V-Spec editions were made to celebrate the success of the GT-R
in Group N and Group A racing (Victory Specification). These
special edition GT-Rs were announced on February 3rd, 1993. This
package added Brembo brakes, a retuned all-wheel-drive system for
better performance, a lightweight aluminum hood and a front bumper
from the "Nismo" R32. 17" BBS alloy wheels were standard with the
V-spec cars, with V-Spec II receiving larger tires of 245/45R/17.
Approximately 1,306 V-Spec II cars were produced, making it one of
rarest variants of the R32.
This 1994 Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R V-Spec II is quite possibly the
finest example in existence. With only two owners throughout its
history, impeccably maintained, and completely unmodified in every
way, this GT-R is a shining jewel in a sea amongst all others.
The GT-R had two owners during its time in Japan and driven less
than 900 miles a year, only recently imported by Canepa to the U.S.
Once the car arrived at Canepa, it was inspected meticulously from
front to back to ensure its originality. The car's condition defies
comprehension. Although it was built 25 years ago, you'll be hard
pressed to find a reason to not believe that this car is most
likely one of the finest examples. There is no visible wear in the
interior, the factory finishes throughout the car are in impeccable
condition, and the driving dynamics of the car reveal a
well-cared-for machine. Once the car was given a complete
mechanical inspection and service, it was sent for a concours-level
detailing by Canepa's detail technicians. The entire underside was
completely detailed, revealing the factory finishes in excellent
condition. Then it was treated to a full meticulous exterior and
interior detailing process. Using only foam pads and light polishes
on the original Crystal White paint has given the entire exterior a
shine like a brand-new car off the showroom floor. The interior was
given equal treatment, cleaning every surface back to new-delivery
The R32 certainly has gained worldwide acclaim and a cult following
amongst the fiercest GT-R aficionados, especially in parts of the
world that until recently did not allow the importation of
"Godzilla." Now with the ability to own and drive a piece of
Nissan's racing heritage, the Skyline GT-R is within grasp.
However, with so many cars modified, changed and abused, it is
extremely rare to find an untouched example that can be enjoyed
exactly how it delivered from the factory. Canepa's specialty of
sourcing only the best vehicles now allows another owner the rare
and quite possibly unrepeatable chance to own an unmodified, low
mileage, and original R32 Skyline GT-R. Now's your chance to have
your own "Godzilla." A right-hand drive cultural racing icon, still
in untouched stock condition while bearing the racing heritage of
Nissan from the 90s. The R32 Skyline GT-R V-Spec II is the car that
will have people second guessing themselves when they see it on the
road as you wave from the right side of the car.
