The R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R is the third generation of one of Japan’s most iconic performance car monikers.

Released in August of 1989, the R32 GT-R was Nissan's return to the performance car model after a 16-year hiatus from production.

The R32 was a pretty radical departure from its predecessor, the KPGC110, and featured new-fangled gadgetry and mechanical wizardry such as complex four-wheel drive system and four-wheel steering.

Power was derived from the herculean RB26DETT, 2.6lt, twin-turbocharged, inline six-cylinder which developed 206kW and 361Nm in its most basic state of tune.

The shove from the blown inline six-pot was sent to all four of the R32s wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. No automatic transmission was offered.

In Australia, the R32 is legend of a car, mostly because of its utter domination of the Australian Touring Car Championship in the early ‘90s.

This particular R32 GTR is a ’94 model and, according to the seller, the vehicle has travelled an original 122,000 kilometres from new.

The seller adds that the vehicle has a grey interior, OEM alloy wheels and exhaust and has been fully complied.

The R32 GTR is $39,900 and anyone interested in this modern classic performance car can view the full listing here.
