We love the Nissan GT-R here at Garage Dreams and while we love a nice clean, stock model, we also love some of the insane custom jobs people have produced. Bobby’s Pandem Skyline GT-R R32 is one of the coolest custom jobs we’ve seen and we love the crazy wide stance. Check out the epic car in the video below!
The R32 GT-R might not have started the GT-R namesake but it was the first modern all-wheel-drive variant. Nissan canned the GT-R name in 1973, but brought it back when they needed a new car for Group A racing homologation rules.
The R32 GT-R was a wildly different beast to the previous GT-R. It featured a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, a powerful 2.6-litre twin-turbo engine that produced 276 hp, and a weight of just over 1,400kg. Nissan started the production run of the R32 GT-R on the 21 August 1989, and began its Group A campaign in 1990 .
A Nismo edition was launched in 1990 with a total production run of 560. This featured some aerodynamic changes, removal of the ABS system, and weight saving. It was also only available in a gun metal grey colour. The Nismo edition served to homologate a number of performance changes for Group A racing, which required Nissan to build 500 production units.
The R32 GT-R was branded with the Godzilla name when it dominated the Australian motoring scene. The car was so dominant in Australia it tore apart Group A racing in the country and got itself banned in the process.
Nissan ended the R32 GT-R’s production run in November 1994 after producing 43,937 units. The R32 GT-R gave birth to a new generation of performance cars from Nissan and changed the game for the Japanese motoring industry.
