I’ve found it surprisingly difficult to sell my Nissan Skyline GT-R. It isn’t due to a lack of potential buyers. There are many potential buyers. It’s just that most of them think that “ur” is an appropriate way to shorten the word “your.”
I recently had the chance to get behind the wheel of one of the most iconic, legendary, exciting automobiles of our time. I also drove my Nissan Skyline GT-R.
It’s not every day that you get to test the veracity of a dubious automotive claim made by an entire nation of car companies for more than a decade. For me, that day was last Tuesday.
I recently had the opportunity to spend an evening with several of the fine men of southern New Jersey law enforcement. This is because I was pulled over by the police twice in the span of 10 minutes last week while I was driving my imported Nissan Skyline GT-R.
I recently had the chance to drive my 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R back-to-back with a brand new 2015 Nissan GT-R. This was like driving a riding lawnmower back-to-back with a jet ski.
I recently had the opportunity to take my imported Nissan Skyline GT-R to a Nissan dealership for service. It was the single most bizarre dealership experience I’ve ever had in my entire life, including the time I showed up at a Porsche dealer with tree branches embedded in my windshield.
I recently had the chance to compare my Nissan Skyline GT-R to a Scion FR-S. Yes, folks, that’s right: I’ve compared my legendary, powerful, fabled, privately imported, mad tyte JDM yo Nissan Skyline GT-R to a budget-priced Toyota with more interior plastic than a McDonald’s Play Place.
I’ve never driven a vehicle in my entire life that attracts as much attention as my Nissan Skyline GT-R. It’s like driving around in the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile, except everyone thinks you’re British.
I happened to stumble across this picture and holy shit this is so ‘90s I just bombed Kuwait.
I didn’t think I would like it very much. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m willing to admit it now: when I first asked you for car suggestions, and you told me to import a Nissan Skyline GT-R, I wasn’t very excited about it. I figured it would be just another used Japanese car: an overhyped, overrated dinosaur, and…
I wanted a Lancia Delta Integrale. I really did.
What started out as a silver Skyline with 50K on the clock ended up as a tuned art car thanks to its owner's talented wife.
Yes, yes, this Hakosuka Skyline is desperately gorgeous, but what's this metal tube running down the roof?
A single lap around the Nürburgring will cost you approximately $35. A single drift around the entrance in your R33 Skyline GT-R will cost you $1,100.
Some guys do things just to make other people cringe. Engineer Christian Newman decided to do it with an eye-searingly greenish-yellow, carbon-fiber and kevlar-infused E30 BMW with a transplanted Nissan GT-R straight six. His reward? Scorn, and 286 WHP.
Recently, the feds have had a field day seizing Skylines and other performance vehicles brought over via the gray market. Reader Erik snagged these photos of an auction-ready "export only" R33 Skyline GT-R and the paper work in Connecticut.
After warning letters were sent to owners 60 days ago (below), teams of Kevlar-armed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers are seizing grey market Nissan Skyline GT-Rs imported by Kaizo according to GTR USA Blog. Below, why it happened.
