found these the other day

The Nismo 400R ,was released in febuary 1996 with a limited run of 99 vehicles.
these cars cost £65.000 had a bored out and strengthened GTR engine coded "RBX-GT2" (2771cc displacement and a Nismo intercooler) with a 10,000rpm limit.

The R33 never competed in Group A racing because the class was abolished after its predecessor the R32 won all 29 races in one season!!!
No-one wanted to race the awesome Skylines after that.

The R33 is the ninth generation of nissan Skyline, and was manufactured from 1993-1999.

Nissan released a 4-door version of the GTR called the Autech to celebrate the skylines 40th birthday.
This car had all the features of the GTR V-spec, but with 4 doors and more room in the back.
there was also a nismo version, which was similar to the 400R but only had 380bhp.

V-spec means Victory Specification

i researched quite a bit before buying my car and found out that the first skyline was made by a firm called prince in 1966 which in turn was bought by nissan who kept the model, since then there have been quite a few different models available.one thing they all have in common....round lights at the rear.

Is that why Prince sang about a little red corvette, cos they have the same rear lights ?
Now who nicked the idea off whom, Ferrari, Corvette, Skyline

Certainly looks like it...... can't remeber the figures but it was certainly a HUGE amount of horsepower.

IIRC, the original bill of sale for my car was from Prince garage (supplied to a British Expat:) ) . Is this the same 'Prince' as the original Prince skylines?

If I remeber correctly...

Those Prince stickers on the backs of your Skylines are from the Japanese dealership. Nissan Prince is apparently a huge network in Japan, and were the first to offer the Skyline for sale. My one came from Osaka Nissan Prince originally.

Yeh it is. Over 1000 bhp & just as much torque. He`s got a web site all about the car & the build.
