NIS­SAN SKY­LINE

Motor Sport News - - Monsters: Ford Sierra Rs500 -

The Nis­san Sky­line GT-R R32 was prob­a­bly the ul­ti­mate Group A sa­loon racer. With com­pa­ra­ble power to the RS500 thanks to its 2.6-litre twin-turbo en­gine, the Nis­san also ben­e­fited from four-wheel drive. It dom­i­nated the Ja­panese and Aus­tralian Tour­ing Car classes in the early ’90s, and won the Bathurst 1000 in Aus­tralia in 1991 and 1992. In Europe, the Nis­san won the 1991 Spa 24 Hours. Matt Neal used a more stan­dard ver­sion to win that year’s Pro­duc­tion Sa­loon Car Cham­pi­onship.
