Want a Nissan GT-R but don't want to spend $100,000 on a new example? This one, built in 1990 and imported from Japan, can be yours for less than a quarter of that price. It's arguably more fun to drive, too, and it's just received a bunch of recent service. Now, . You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
According to the seller's description, this GT-R has been treated to a host of maintenance work, including a full rebuild of the RB26DETT twin-turbo straight-six engine. The Attesa all-wheel drive system has been serviced, and the radiator has been replaced. There's a bunch of new seals and gaskets, as well as a new brake master cylinder, new slave cylinder, a new clutch, and new coilpacks. The car has also been resprayed in the factory grey color.
The car is largely stock save for some blue-painted calipers, a few aftermarket gauges, and an aftermarket exhaust made by Apexi. Oh, and the rear wing is missing, strangely. Personally, I'm a fan of the wing, and would rather have it on there, though some people at the Road & Track offices disagree, and prefer the clean, understated look.
This GT-R is currently , with an asking price of $23,000, which is a few hundred bucks less than the starting MSRP of a new Prius. This price is about the norm for Skylines in this condition, but that's before considering the newly rebuilt engine. We'd say that's a fair number (if you can deal with the missing spoiler out back).
