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.
