HJA bring you this Exceptional R33 GT-R fresh in from Japan. Grade 4, No accident history and packed out with highly sought after Nismo parts, this has to be one of the best condition R33 GT-R’s available on the market.

With the rapidly increasing prices of Skyline GTR models now is the best time to buy. The huge worldwide demand for Skyline GTR’S have seen buying frenzy’s in Japan/worldwide. To give you an example low mileage R34 GTR V-spec II Nurs are selling for £120,000+ before any shipping or Taxes! Other examples would be an R34 GT-R Z-Tune which has recently been valued at £400,000, R33 GTR 400R editions are selling for £200k+ now on average.

It is becoming increasingly rare to find good examples such as this, we have a team in Japan who are constantly scouting for only top end GTR’s for our stock. We check dozens of GT-R’s weekly and only pick a handful that meet our standards.
In spite of all the Top end GTR dealers in Japan trying to get hold of the car, we were fortunate enough to be able to secure this R33 and bring it over to the U.K.

Exterior
Garaged all of its life and never used in the rain, it really has been cherished and meticulously maintained by its owner in Japan.
Very clean no accident bodywork has an amazing gloss to the paintwork, in stunning condition very rare to see a beautiful example like this. It benefits from a number of exterior aftermarket parts most noticeable the highly sought after Nismo LM GT4 forged Monoblock Alloy wheels.

Interior
Very clean with no wear or tear to the carpet, plastic trims or leather gaiters or seats. It retains the original factory steering wheel and shift knob which is a real testament to the low mileage the car has done. The seats still have the dark blue factory fresh colour with Red stitching unique to the series 3. The fabric is still soft to the touch, the seats really look/feel like they have hardly ever been sat in.

It’s not just exceptionally clean on top, underneath has to be seen to be appreciated- quite hard to believe this cult classic is 22 years old as the condition puts most new cars to shame! Just check out the pics and you will understand. It’s not far off how it would have rolled out from the factory; Strut towers are original and the rear arches/boot are in immaculate rust-free condition.

Performance
The iconic Rb26 Engine pulls boisterously throughout the rev range without any hesitation; Gearbox is nice and fluent with no crunches and the clutch holds the power perfectly. Handling is comfortable but also offering you enough stiffness for hard cornering thanks to the highly sought after Nismo S1 suspension.

Another pleasant point to mention it also had a valid shaken before it left Japan; this means the car had passed the stringent Japanese testing which is a real testament to how well it has been maintained.

The GT-R Brand is now extremely sought after worldwide, and is considered the next big thing in the burgeoning classic and performance car market.

Sourcing low mileage examples like this is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Overall if you are after a cherished modified example to enjoy yourself, to be part of a collection or as an investment look no further.

• We have serviced the car using top branded oils, it will also come with a full independent inspection by RK Tuning prior to collection/delivery.

SPEC:
• Nismo LM GT4 forged Monoblock alloy wheels

BCNR33 Series 3 Specs/Differences
In 1997, Nissan made more than a few improvements to the R33.
The Series 3 is the only one that came standard from the factory with: Interior (seat, door trim) with red accents, Xenon headlights, larger front lip spoiler, N1 ducts in the front bumper, left side turn signal “grill” is cut out for maximum airflow to optional oil cooler, ABS braking system actuator unit is smaller with reprogrammed logic to improve stability in braking while cornering situations, door window glass changed to “long life hydrophobic glass” All glass received an anti-UV coating and additional bracing in the trunk rear floor area attaching the rear suspension mount to the floor in order to improve the car’s rigidity.
