This Monster Burnout Is The Perfect Send-Off For A Beloved Skyline GT-R

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 GT-R owner did.

This beloved R32 GT-R packs the more powerful RB26DETT engine from the R34 with twin Garrett GT2860-5 turbos, good for 420 horsepower at the wheels. However, its owner decided to move on, so filmmaker Ron Gold and his friend Andriko decided to make a short film to remember this awesome ride.

It’s an exceptionally clean build, but he’ll definitely have to clean some tire bits off of that shiny paint after this one. Excellent.

Soooo we’re good with thrashing on a car (and tires) that someone else is going to buy? Yeah, not cool.
