An online auction took place in Japan, during which an unknown buyer paid 55 million yen (about $ 500,000) for a white 2002 Nissan Skyline GT? R. Such a high cost is explained by the excellent condition of the sports car, as well as the belonging of the car to the rarest special series, distinguished by both external and technical modifications.
This Nissan Skyline GT? R R34 is a rare modification of the V? Spec II N? r. In total, Japanese engineers have assembled 718 of these “Skylines”, which were built in honor of the famous Nürburgring race track.
Sports cars were distinguished by a reinforced suspension, reconfigured all-wheel drive, as well as an RB26DETT engine boosted to 280 horsepower (and in fact there were more than 330 horsepower) based on the N1 unit from the racing GT? R. Together with the “six”, a six-speed “mechanics” Getrag was installed on the car.
Other features of the rare special series were the presence of a massive wing, a carbon fiber hood, a developed body kit, as well as a completely dark interior and a speedometer marked up to 300 kilometers per hour. The 19-year-old Skyline GT? R has only covered ten kilometers, so it is effectively a new car.
