HJA bring you another stunning R33 GTR that’s just landed from Japan. This one being a rare Series 3 packed out with top branded aftermarket parts bolstering the power to around 450-500ps.

Exterior is in lovely condition and benefits from an array of aero parts which really give this R33 GTR an aggressive stance. There are no major scratches or dents or really anything that needs doing paintwork wise.

Interior is very clean with no wear or tear to the carpet, plastic trims or leather gaiters or seats. The seats still have the dark blue factory fresh colour with Red stitching unique to the series 3. The fabric is still soft to the touch, the seats really look/feel like they have hardly ever been sat in.

It’s not just exceptionally clean on top, underneath has to be seen to be appreciated- quite hard to believe this cult classic is 22 years old as the condition puts most new cars to shame! Just check out the pics and you will understand. It’s not far off how it would have rolled out from the factory; Strut towers are original and the rear arches/boot are in immaculate rust-free condition.

We have just serviced the car upon arrival with only top branded oils and filters. The car runs like a dream and is easy to drive around even at low speeds. The gearbox is fluent with no crunches and the car pulls very hard throughout the rev range and also has great stopping power thanks to the upgraded Brembo F50 front brakes.
Boost can be adjusted from high to low with a flick of a switch, low is set to around 400hp and High would see you closer to 500hp. Make no mistake about it, this is a quick car and would hold its own with any modern day sports car.

We cannot reiterate how difficult it is to find examples like this now in Japan. Dealers/private collectors and others are locked in bidding wars which is constantly driving up the prices. If you are after a high spec Series 3 in stunning condition then 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.
