Of all of the supercars to come out of Japan in the ‘90s and early ‘00s, the Nissan Skyline GT-R was arguably the most impressive. Nicknamed Godzilla, the boxy street racer was known for its impeccable handling and lightning-quick acceleration. The cars are major collector’s items today, and someone is about to add an extremely impressive example to their stable.
Up for auction from BH Auction is a 2002 Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Nür (chassis BNR34-403129). As the final iteration of the Skyline GT-R to roll out of Nissan’s factories, just 700 of the V-Spec II Nür versions were ever sold, making this car especially rare. Not only that, but it’s practically brand new. The car has never been registered and its odometer reads just 10km, so whoever buys this is essentially getting a 20-year-old NOS GT-R. The fact that it’s a Nür version makes it even more exciting. Named for Germany’s famed Nürburgring race track, the Nür houses the gold-colored N1 V6 engine that’s equipped with a twin ball-bearing metal turbocharger and a slew of exclusive performance parts like a special exhaust manifold, reinforced cylinder block and pistons, and custom oil pump and water pump. It’s quite the machine, and we’re really hoping that whoever buys it finally puts some miles it.
