Know Your GT-R: 1989 Skyline GT-R BNR32

This GT-R is based off the eighth-generation Skyline, the R32. The BNR32 Skyline revived the “GT-R” name after an absence of 16 years. This example contains a 6-cylinder inline, dual overhead cam (DOHC), 2.6 liter (280PS) RB26DETT engine. The chassis also comes equipped with an electronically controlled 4WD torque splitter system, the ATTESA E-TS and a 4-wheel multilink suspension. The 1989 Skyline GT-R BNR32 is quite special as it never lost a single race in the All Japan Championships.
