Nissan Skyline Specs

(R32, R33, R34, R35 GTR)

The launch of the Nissan Skyline GTR lives up to all the hype of an ultimate supercar that is street legal. With 480 horses of twin-turbo charged power on tap, it is clear why many have signed up months in advance to be able to purchase one of these babies. The Skyline R35 GTR is the first of the series to be brought overseas to the states, unlike the R32, R33 and R34 GTR models that seemed to make it everywhere else but here. Below are the detailed specs on the Skyline engines.
