Nissan shocked the world with this high-tech, four-wheel drive speed machine
When the GT-R came to Europe, it made serious waves. Capable of lapping the Nürburgring faster than a Porsche 928GTS, this triumph of technology over breeding created a new breed of cult Japanese sports cars. The car was conceived for Group A racing, and featured four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering and a turbocharged RB20 straight six. In Europe, the Skyline GT-R failed to sell in huge numbers, but gained a giant-killing reputation that subsequent generations have maintained. Affordable today, but unmodified versions are few and far between.
