Monster R32 GTR

I think I’ve said it in earlier posts on the blog but the R32 GTR is over 25 years old and is definitely showing its age.
Of course this notion is solely based on a stock R32 cause man, if you modify it with the right parts, it can easily blend in with them newer generations of sports cars. Case in point, this insanely gorgeous example from Global Auto Sales.

This is quite possibly the most beautiful R32 I’ve ever seen. Everything about this car is perfect in my opinion, everything from the body car, to wheel choice, and all the modifications in between.

The rare Shorin front lip looks amazing with the rest of the car.

Gloss black TE37 and Endless BBKs is footwork perfection.

The back side of this beast is equally aggressive as the rest of the car with that gigantic Voltex spoiler and the Top Secret carbon diffuser. Oh, and that Ganador titanium exhaust is also a nice, albeit, expensive touch.

And lastly, a well-rounded car must have a well built motor to finish it off, and this R32 is all about power and reliability. We talking 2.8 liters of stroked RB26 and a huge HKS T04Z turbine that cranks out 700+ HPs, enough for drag, circuit, drift, or whatever motorsport you throw at it.

Black and White Amemiya

Global Auto of Osaka, Japan is one of those dealers that always delivers some of the finest tuned cars on the planet. They specialize mostly in GTRs of all ages but they do offer a host of other makes and models as well. Boy do I wish we had auto dealers like this in the States but with all our regulations and what nots, this can only be a dream to us. Anyways, one of their latest offerings is this mint RE-Amemiya FD on Enkei RPF1s!

The RPF1s match pretty damn well with this car.

Interior wise, lots of CARROZZERIA entertainment bits as well as Sparco steering and Recaro SR3 recliners.

As Good As It Gets: Big Power R32

It’s kind of hard to believe that the Nissan R32 have been around for over 25 years now. And the great thing about it is that it’s technically legal in the States now, but the bad thing is it’s 25 years old…that’s almost antique in this day and age. But like with all material things, if you keep it in good running order, it can still look brand spanking new after years of use. Case in point, this immaculate 1990 R32 GTR.

This is by far one of the cleanest R32s I have ever seen before, and the fact that it’s modified just solidifies how rare this example is. Cause we all know good and well that modified cars tend to deteriorate a lot quicker than stock counterparts.

I love that the exterior has a minimalist feel to it, just a nice subtle drop and R35 brakes surrounded by some ever so popular TE37SLs.

The back side is all stock except for a huge Trust exhaust protruding out the back.

Under the hood is an extremely clean set up capable of 800+HPs courtesy of HKS internals stroking the RB26 to 2.7L and that ginormous Trust T88-34D turbine.

On the interior side, it’s also kept super clean with just the necessities. We’ve got a host of gauges to keep everything in running order, and upgraded seats with Bride ZETA III on the driver side as well as Bride GIAS II recliner for the passenger side
