The Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R appeared in 1995, the year after production had stopped on the R32 GT-R. To the surprise of many, it outstripped the R32 in all departments. The mechanics of the car were further refined to produce what lay at the heart of the car’s concept – the “ultimate driving pleasure”.
It adopted the famous RB26DETT engine and enhanced its torque and response in the transitional range without sacrificing its superior performance in the high range. The boost was hiked from 1.72 lb to 1.85 lb and torque raised to 271.2 lb-ft.
Car control in corners has been improved, and stability has been increased by the addition of front and rear yaw rate control to HICAS. An improved aerodynamics capability further helps the R33 outstrip the R32 at high speeds. Additional minor changes in 1997 have further improved the Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R.
