3rd generation Skyline R32, do you know the difference between GTS-t and GT-R?

The Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R, which has been sold before 30 years, is very popular in the United States.
This is the influence of the Hollywood movie “Wild Speed”.
Popular vehicles in the Wild Speed ​​Series, such as the Skyline GT-R, Supra, and Lancer Evolution, are living a second life in the United States across the Pacific.
Today, let’s take a look at the Nissan Skyline GT-R, which sparked the boom.

What is the R32 Skyline GT-R?

The R32 Skyline GT-R was born to win the All Japan Touring Car Championship.
It was created in 1989 by combining Japanese technologies from those days.
In fact, it was a car that appeared more than 30 years ago.

The engine is an inline 6-cylinder 2.6L twin turbo with a maximum output of 280ps full-time 4WD,
The latest devices at that time, ATTESA E-TS and Super HICAS, were introduced to realize high-speed running and high-speed turning.

Do you know that the displacement is 2.6L?

The reason was that we matched the race regulations.

What is Skyline GTS-t?

The GTS-t is a 2.0L inline 6-cylinder turbo with a maximum output of 215 ps rear-wheel drive and a more compact body than the GT-R.
GTS-t is available in two grades, GTS-t and GTS-t Type M,
GTS-t is a 15-inch wheel + brake caliper. Type M is a combination of 16-inch wheel + brake caliper.

Is there a difference in appearance?

From a distance, the difference is hard to spot, but the GT-R has a larger body size than the GTS-t.
The GT-R is a racing specification with a reinforced body, so the front and rear fender parts are overhanging and rugged.
The GTS-t, on the other hand, feels like a slim, sporty city car that focuses on reducing the body weight.

The easiest way to tell is if the GT-R name batch is pasted.
However, customizing GTS-t to GT-R specifications was popular at that time, so the appearance was GT-R and the contents were sometimes GTS-t.
Dress up the GTS-t with the GT-R’s front grille, bumper and rear spoiler.

It can be distinguished by sound. Since the displacements are 2.0L and 2.6L, the GT-R will sound more powerful than the GTS-t when comparing the engine and exhaust sounds.

Which is better to ride?

The GT-R, which can transmit the power of the twin turbo engine from the four wheels to the road surface without waste, is suitable for grip driving on the circuit.
GTS-t is a rear-wheel drive lightweight vehicle, so I think it’s a good car to enjoy drifting.
