HJA are pleased to offer another exceptional Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R fresh in from Japan. No accident history in the super rare and highly sort after factory dark grey pearl paint. We believe due to the rarity this would be a great example for the collectors especially as it has fully documented history from new.

Service history records as follows:
1132km, 3007km, 3973km, 7609km, 11634km, 12665km, 13786km, 20444km, 21386km, 23069km, 27867km, 28757km, 30885km, 37379km, 42409km, 53744km, 54095km, 56324km, 57565km, 58227km, 58744km, 59810km, 61337km, 61735km, 61754km, 64932km, 72161km, 72600km, 77629km, 80287km, 81973km

With the rapidly increasing prices of Skyline GTR models now is the best time to buy. The huge worldwide demand for Skyline GTR’S have seen buying frenzy’s in Japan/worldwide. To give you an example low mileage R34 GTR V-spec II Nurs are selling for £120,000+ before any shipping or Taxes! Other examples would be an R34 GT-R Z-Tune which has recently been valued at £400,000, R33 GTR 400R editions are valued at £150,000+

It is becoming increasingly rare to find good examples such as this, we have a team in Japan who are constantly scouting for only top end GTR’s for our stock. We check literally hundreds or GT-R’s a month and only pick a handful that meet or standards for our stock.

In spite of all the Top end GTR dealers in Japan trying to get hold of the car, we were fortunate enough to be able to secure this R33 and bring it over to the U.K

The bodywork is in stunning condition has an amazing gloss to the paintwork it is extremely rare to see a beautiful example like this. It benefits from a number of exterior factory parts most noticeable the rare Nissan Xenon headlights that come standard on the Series 3 models as well N1 ducts in the front bumper gives it a more aggressive front end as well as helping with the cooling.
Another great point to highlight is that a total of 670 R33 GTR’s were ever made in KN6 dark grey pearl and only 40 series 3 R33 GT-R’s, which makes them super rare and highly collectable vehicle.

The interior is in beautiful condition and as it is a series 3 GTR it comes with the red stitched later model interior. There is no wear or tear to the carpet, plastic trims or leather gaiters. Dashboard and surrounds are like new with no holes/scratches. The original speedometer has been replaced with a Nismo 320km/h meter which increases the speedometer from 180km/h to 320km/h and also the RPM range increase from 10k to 11k red line. A good thing to note is that the conversion was documented and total mileage is verified.

The iconic RB26 Engine pulls boisterously throughout the rev range without any hesitation; Gearbox is nice and fluent with no crunches. Oil pressure is nice and healthy and engine running temperatures always stay cool. We will be changing the current suspension for brand new Tein coilovers.

The GT-R Brand is now extremely sought after worldwide, and is considered the next big thing in the burgeoning classic and performance car market.
Sourcing examples like this is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Overall if you are after a cherished modified example to enjoy yourself, to be part of a collection or as an investment look no further.

BCNR33 Series 3 Specs/Differences
In 1997, Nissan made more than a few improvements to the R33.
The Series 3 is the only one that came standard from the factory with: Interior (seat, door trim) with red accents, Xenon headlights, larger front lip spoiler, N1 ducts in the front bumper, left side turn signal “grill” is cut out for maximum airflow to optional oil cooler, ABS braking system actuator unit is smaller with reprogrammed logic to improve stability in braking while cornering situations, door window glass changed to “long life hydrophobic glass” All glass received an anti-UV coating and additional bracing in the trunk rear floor area attaching the rear suspension mount to the floor in order to improve the car’s rigidity.
