Nis­san Sky­line GT- R ( R32)

Evo - - MARKET -

‘As much as I en­joyed the Ac­cord Type R, I did get bored with it and longed for the torque from some­thing tur­bocharged. I also re­ally wanted to be the first UK owner of a car im­ported from Ja­pan. I ini­tially looked for an­other 200SX but then I saw what a bar­gain Sky­line GT- Rs were at the time. A cou­ple of months later I bought an R32, and I still own it now. It was stan­dard apart from an ex­haust and air fil­ter when I bought it, but I’ve up­graded cer­tain parts such as the brakes, clutch and bushes, and it sits on coilovers now. Sadly I rarely use it. I don’t take it out dur­ing win­ter, it gets too hot on track­days and its climb­ing value puts me off. I ab­so­lutely love it, though.’
