Nissan Skyline GT-R Overview
Nissan Skyline GT-R is a sports car based on Nissan Skyline range (a line of sports cars, compact cars and compact executive cars). The car will be a wonderful memory for many people who used to play Gran Turismo on the Playstation from the late 1990s to early 2000s. It was also one of the most favourite road-going racing cars amongst car enthusiasts and gamers alike thanks to its imposing presence and incredible performance.
There are 5 generations of Nissan Skyline GT-R. The first generation was launched from 1969 to 1972 under the model code KPGC10, and become a legendary sports car in local Japanese market. In 1973, the world was introduced the second generation, under the model code KPGC110 but unfortunately this generation was not a success as the first generation. And after a notable absence of 16 years, Nissan brought back the Skyline GT-R with more interesting things in the third generation in the year 1989, under the name BNR32 (‘R32”) Skyline GT-R. The third generation won a lot of car racing competitions like the Australian Touring Car Championship, JTCC Group A series championship. After the success of R32, the fourth generation (R33) was released in 1995, featured the same power output and engine layout as the R32; besides Nissan gave to the R33 a lot of improvement in every department. And at that time, it was impressive that the R33 was the fastest car production lapping the Nurburgring, posting a record of 00:08:01. In 1999, the fifth generation was released under the name R34 with a huge improvement, making the car as a strong competitor to other expensive European supercars of the days.
Nissan Skyline GT-R became an outstanding product of Nissan that showcases many advanced technologies such as the Super-HICAS 4-wheel steering and the ATTESA E-TS AWD. Today, the Skyline GT-R is well-known for circuit track, drag racing, time attack and events held by tuning magazines. In 2002, Nissan decided to stop producing the Skyline GT-R and replaced by the R35 Nissan GT-R (an all-new vehicles based on the V36 Skyline). Though the two cars look different, they are manufactured in the same factory and share similar design features.
Generations Of Nissan Skyline G-TR
1. First Generation (1969 - 1972)
The first generation, known by the name PGC10, was introduced in February 1969. Originally, it was a 4-door sedan that later released as a coupe in March 1971.

Unfortunately, this generation was not a successful generation of Skyline GT-R. There were only 197 cars built by the end of its short production run. A gasoline crisis happened in the early 1970s which dried out any demand for high-performance sports cars was the main reason responsible for the limited sales of the second generation.
