"The 1993 Skyline GT-R signaled the return of the “GT-R” badge after more than a decade. While high-performance Skylines had existed in the interim, the introduction of a host of new go-fast goodies allowed Nissan to resurrect the more extreme badge for use on the new car. The big story was all-wheel drive, known to Nissan as ATTESA E-TS (Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All-Terrain with Electronic Torque Split). As the system’s lengthy name suggest, it is a complex and competent system that provides tons of grip. That’s good, because the Skyline has a lot of motor that needs to be translated into forward momentum, and all-wheel drive is a great way to do that. That motor is the famous RB26DETT, introduced in this generation Skyline in 1989, and packing a four-valve head and parallel twin-turbochargers to produce well over the advertised 276 horsepower (to comply with the famous Gentleman’s Agreement limiting horsepower between Japanese manufacturers). The V-Spec (for “victory”) package includes lightened components and larger brakes, among other improvements."
—Official description[1]

The 1993 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec - abbreviated as Nissan GT-R '93 or Nissan GT-R R32[2] - is an AWD sports car by Nissan featured in all main series titles since Forza Motorsport 2 except for Forza Horizon.

It is available as the eleventh Barn Find in Forza Horizon 3.

Synopsis

The E-BNR32 (abbreviated as R32) generation marked the return of the GT-R nameplate after 16 years, succeeding the 1973 2000GT-R. Designed for the Group A motorsport class and inspired by the Porsche 959, the R32 is equipped with a twin turbo engine and an all-wheel drive system.[3]

The R32 is fitted with multilink suspension and ventilated disc brakes on all corners. With a weight of 3307 lb (1500 kg) it is the lightest of all 1990s era Skyline GT-R models, although it also is nose-heavy due to a front weight distribution of 58%. Power is transmitted to a five-speed manual gearbox and then sent to all wheels through an electronically controlled AWD system that splits its torque output through an electro-hydraulic clutch.

The R32 is powered by a 2.6 litre RB26DETT codenamed inline-six engine with two ceramic turbochargers working in a parallel twin turbo configuration to offer optimal power unfolding. It reintroduces a 24 valve DOHC design now put inside an aluminum cylinder head and uses individual throttle bodies for optimum engine response. Due to a gentlemen's agreement by Japanese carmakers in 1989, the R32 has a downrated stock power rating of 276 hp (206 kW).[4][5]

The V-Spec (Victory Specification) model was introduced in 1993 to celebrate the R32's racing success. The R32 was replaced in 1995 by the R33.

Performance

The R32 GT-R is still up to par with modern sports cars as it can go from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.3 seconds and 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 12.9 seconds.

Its all-wheel drive system provides plenty of grip for taking off quickly and handling corners, which is enhanced by the R32's light steering. Due to a nose-heavy platform however, understeer is to be expected when handling high-speed corners.

Trivia

  • The R32 and all subsequent model generations are commonly referred to as 'Godzilla', a term that was made famous by the Australian press as a response to its dominance in Group A racing.[6]
  • In Forza Horizon 3, the R32 has the Gibson Racing livery rather than a manufacturer color when found as a Barn Find.
  • The Forza model is fitted with the front bumper of the N1 specification R32 Skyline.[7]
