The Mad Laboratory of Samtrak - 1990 R32 Skyline GTR 4 door
Project Name : GODZIL4

This is the car many enthusiasts wished Nissan had built. Everything about this car is GTR, and it has 4 doors! Originally a 1990 R32 Skyline GTS-4, this "4 door GTR" is a true bespoke vehicle. Consult and design help from MINE'S Garage in Japan, a private owner converted the entire car; the motor (RB26DETT FTW!), full drivetrain, full interior, entire front end, complete rear end, and even an all steel widebody, are all from a GTR donor. This one was done right.

The body is originally an R32 GTS-4 (HNR32-007711) which came with lots of the same running gear options as the GTR. ATTESA AWD, HICAS 4 wheel steering, and an RB20DET was OEM. The normal GTS-4 came with the narrow body, and those less favorable square taillights, but was the closest trim level to the GTR in 1990.

Imported by Japanese Classics in early 2016, this car was never offered to the public. The plan was to keep it as a shop car and show piece. I am the second owner in the US.The first owner purchased it from the Richmond, VA based importer and had it for 6 months.

This is the car as it came from Japan: (cept tires)

-KG1 Jet Silver paint (original color of car)
-Full GTR drivetrain with ATTESA AWD and HICAS
-GTR calipers
-Exterior Front and Rear body panels, hood, lights, bumpers from GTR

-RARE MINE's Garage coilovers (Ohlins)
-Aftermarket cluster reads up to 280kmh
-Authentic 17x9.5 +25 BBS LM 2piece wheels MINE'S edition
-BFGoodrich 255/40/ZR17 square setup
-Greddy Pillar Pods and Intake
-Oil temp, Oil pressure etc gauges in glove box
-3" exhaust not sure of brand
-Greddy piping
-R34 turbos
-Single Plate Racing Clutch
-Short Shift Kit
-Mishimoto FMIC
-Steel braided lines
-Polished valve covers
-Cusco bar front and rear upper tie bar
-Oil filter relocation and Oil cooler
-Blitz BOV
-EBC pads
