This one-of-a-kind Skyline R33 GT-R is cheaper than the R35

The Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 might not be as iconic as its predecessor, the R32, but it’s still a fine example of Japanese engineering and performance. These cars are quite rare, and getting one in the United States is somewhat complicated, but if you’re in the market for a beefed-up R33, Vistec R Imports just posted one online. And it’s not just any R33, but a unique car modded by famous Japanese shop Veilside.

A Custom GT-R With History of Award Winning

Showcased for the first time at the 1996 Tokyo Motor Show, this bespoke R33 is fitted with a wide-body kit that extends both the fenders and the side skirts. It also comes with a menacing front bumper, a race-inspired rear diffuser, and big wing atop the trunk lid. It also includes a custom Veilside steering wheel, shift knob, oil cap, valve cover, and wheels.

The engine was also upgraded with a variety of components from Tomei, but it also features an N1 crankshaft and oil pump, a turbocharger by HKS, and a Nismo clutch.

It now rides on an Ohlins suspension, and stopping power comes from Brembo brakes at all four corners. There’s no word as to how much power the modified twin-turbo, inline-six engine is now capable of, but it should deliver more than the factory-made Nismo 400R model, rated at 400 horsepower.

The car costs $120,000, including shipping, which is only $7,000 more than a brand-new Nissan GT-R.
