You know an auction is good when the Ferrari F40 isn’t even the most interesting thing for sale.
Every day, I come into the Jalopnik office, open my laptop and blog the blogs. I also have a separate window always open and one eye trained on my TweetDeck, which is how I saw this lovely red 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R pop up on Bring a Trailer. I think its shininess is what first caught my attention.
Well, here’s my favorite car video today. It’s the internet’s Most Sensible Car Reviewer Extraordinaire Doug DeMuro in Initial D.
Our undying love for R34 Nissan Skyline GT-Rs will never truly be satisfied, but this pretty wallpaper of a rare 2000 V-Spec edition will do in the meantime. Only 1,200 were ever made. This one has a full Nismo body kit, HKS Hypermax IV coilovers, and rare Nismo LMGT4 wheels—and we like it.
The Nissan Skyline GT-R is one of the greatest performance cars ever built. Almost all generations of Nissan’s top-of-the-line icon have been praised by critics, adored by owners and lusted after by fans outside Japan. “Almost” is the key word here. The porky, blocky R33 Skyline from the mid-1990s is kind of the ugly…
For years, us Americans dreamed of all-wheel drive Nissan Skyline GT-Rs, cars that we’d only see in Gran Turismo, banned from our roads. But now that more and more Skylines are legal under the 25-year import rule, we’re getting more and more of these things, including the non-AWD models.
“All the cool things people say about these cars are true.”
Do you know what’s a nice car that’s virtuous and not bad? The Nissan Skyline GT-R, particularly this R33 from the mid-1990s. Its speed is obsolete and we now can appreciate its manners on their own terms. I want to drive one.
Project cars never truly leave—they stay with us forever. (Usually in the form of oil stains, in my experience.) But sometimes, life happens and forces you to part ways. It’s best to go cherish your work while you still have it. I’m talking, of course, about ripping ultra-huge burnouts, as this 1991 Nissan Skyline…
How is it that the longer I stare at R33 Skylines the more they look like alternate universe Mustangs?
Do I need an orange-over-black Hakosuka Skyline GT-R in my life? No. Very technically, I can survive without it. A sad, hollow survival, but survival nonetheless.
There are many things you can aspire to. There are many causes to live for. What about a Nissan Skyline?
It’s a sad day for car enthusiasts as, last night, two dozen rare imports left this earth headed for Jalop heaven in a warehouse fire, The Drive reports. We fear that among the victims may be some classic JDM Nissan Skyline goodness.
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.
