The Skyline GT-T is a hugely capable sports tourer with performance that will enable it to slay most cars in it's path, yet it still has refinement, a practical boot and looks that are still as fresh today, as when this model was first introduced in 1998 (Production of all Skyline R34's ceased in August 2002). Even as standard, they're hugely impressive and fun to drive. As they're now no longer in production and top examples are in short supply, demand has stayed strong in Japan and prices are still as strong today, as they were 2 years ago. This is good news, as it means prices are unlikely to drop significantly into the future (As Nissan isn't making any more turbo Skylnes until the R35 GT-R is introduced in 2007) and so these will continue to make excellent investments, especially in manual form, which is the more desirable spec. for driving enthusiasts!
This is a high quality fully spec'd manual ER34 Skyline GT Turbo in perfect condition, already ideally prepared for daily reliable use in the UK.
Standard equiment includes: Hicas 4 Wheel Steering (Providing improved turn in and cornering accuracy), Traction Control, ABS, Dual SRS airbags with leather SRS airbag steering wheel, Climate control Air Conditioning, rear wiper, UV Cut Glass, Window wind deflectors, Privacy rear windows, Electric Windows and Electric Mirrors with Retract Mode.
Improvements over standard are as follows: 18" Lightweight Forged Alloy Volk Racing GT-N seamless 2 piece Wheels complete with Dunlop Formula (rear) sports tyres of size 255/35 ZR18 and Bridgestone T'S -01 front tyres of size 225/45 ZR18. Note that the optional carbon fibre and alloy centre caps are also fitted, as well as locking wheel nuts and lightweight alloy nuts. These alloys are some of the most desirable wheels currently available in Japan. New cost for these rims and tyres in Japan is approximately £2,500.
Wheels are in perfect condition with no scratches, kerb marks or any such damage!
Original Polyeurethane Factory Option ABS Plastic front spoiler, Sideskirts, rear bumper and GT-R R34 styled rear spoiler. These show that this was clearly a well spec'd model right from the factory, the optional kit looking far superior to non kitted examples. To the untrained eye this looks and sounds like an R34GTR, at a fraction of the cost!
Performance wise, this car remains largely standard. The air box is standard, complete with cold air induction. Exhaust rear section (Cat Back) is a Blitz stainless steel unit. Suspension has been improved through the use of Espelir active GT springs, which lower the car by 25mm at each corner, whilst giving a firmer and progressive feel. Note that this example is also fitted with optional traction control in addition to other high spec. The sound from the 2.5L 6 Cylinder Turbo is subtle, yet indicative of the performance available, giving a deep tone throughout the rev range. The standard catalyst remains in place, keeping this car street legal. Factory Fitted Strut Brace is also present to further improve handling. Impressive Xenon Gas Discharge Headlamps are fitted as standard.
www.neweraparts.com is also able to supply performance upgrades such as high flow catalyst, Apexi Power FC ECU and controller, Boost controller and other upgrades to make this a higher performance car. We are also able to supply Nismo carbon fibre rear-spoiler end trims, as well as Nismo clear indicators, B Pilar trims and other cosmetic enhancement parts at low cost. See our parts website for details.
A high-power Panasonic CD/Radio unit is fitted - complete with security removable face. This unit comes free of charge with the car. A non smoker's car & the interior is in excellent condition with no faults to report. The entire interior is in excellent original condition, with no significant wear to seats, fitted mats or plastics. The only fault we have found in the interior is some minor wear to the leather covering of the original steering wheel. A picture is available to show this clearly.
Auction grade is 4. The Exterior is completely mint and unmarked, aside from a small scratch to the n/s leading edge of the front bumper and a tiny scratch on the rear o/s light surround. . This car's in perfect condition with no pin dents, no signs of previous paintwork or anything that needs repair. The engine has also recently been serviced, with oil that is as new. Note that underneath, the car's also in perfect condition with no faults to report - there's not a single sign of corrosion beneath. It's like a nearly new car.
Test Drive of this Skyline revealed no faults at all. It had strong performance with the traction control light flashing whist in 2nd gear, whilst we pushed the car hard to make sure there were no faults to be found (After warming it up thoroughly of course) - Exceptionally good performance for a near standard example is indicative of a good strong engine. Oil pressure at start up is over 4kg/cm2 and settles to just over 2kg/cm2 at idle when completely warmed. There are no rattles, no warped discs, no problems at all. Just perfect mechanical condition throughout.
Skyline R34 GT-R looks, superb performance (Approx 290 bhp) & handling to match (uprated suspension springs, Hicas 4WS, Limited Slip Differential, etc) with much lower price, insurance and running costs. These are excellent performance cars, complete with an engine closely based on the legendary GTR's RB26 - this one's fitted with a 2.5 litre RB25 instead complete with variable valve timing. Single turbo, so much less lag than a twin turbo GTR, yet capable of producing 360 bhp easily with only basic tuning. A quick and robust Skyline for every day use if need be, or simply for weekends and special events. Note that Polyeurethane is much more resistant to stone chips and parking damage than fibreglass bodykits. Being flexible, with specially treated paint for flexibility, these kits will not damage easily - but be as resistant to damage as normal car's bumpers. In conversions, we will make one of the reversing lights into a foglight on this model, so it will look like a completely standard factory fitted item. Neat!
This is a truly stunning example, the cosmetic enchancements along with the 18" as new & unmarked Volk Racing alloys combined set the car off beautifully. These wheels compliment the white body very well. Crucially, all signs indicate these modifications haven't been done a long time ago, but within the last year or two - with no abuse of the car - upgrades fitted cost the last owner approx. £3,500 in total!
OTR price: £13,250. This includes all fees, E-SVA test and full conversions, minor paintwork described, valetting, cost of road tax and new MOT and 12 months comprehensive Motorcare warranty. A Deposit of £1,000 secures for prompt shipment. Please contact us for details on how to reserve this special and exceptional condition Skyline.
