As the second wave of the Skyline’s resurgent 1990s GT-Rs, the “R33” era was particularly good for Nissan. Many revisions were made to the older car that increase reliability and performance, and the V-Spec incorporated even further refinements with the addition of ATTESA ET-S Pro, an all-wheel drive system with a new active rear limited slip differential that was able to transfer torque from side to side, for even more precise traction control. In translation, this means that the V-Spec models are faster and grippier at the limits and in poor traction situations, like rain, snow, or gravel. The 2.6-liter twin-turbocharged inline six, the RB26DETT, carries over relatively unchanged, although certain parts were strengthened against failure. With the V-Spec package comes larger brakes and wheels, and as the highest-spec GT-R on offer (at least until the N1 version came out), Nissan used this model as the basis for their Group N racers.
— Official description [1]

The 1997 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec - abbreviated as Nissan GT-R '97 or Nissan GT-R R33[2] - is an AWD sports car by Nissan featured in all main Motorsport series titles since Forza Motorsport 3, as well as in Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Horizon 4.

Synopsis

The E-BCNR33 (abbreviated as R33) model is the fourth generation of the Skyline GT-R that replaced the R32 in 1995 and continued production until 1998. It was replaced in the following year by the R34.

Although power remained unchanged, the GT-R was redeveloped with improved driving dynamics in mind: The R33 was displayed in Nissan's television commercial Minus 21-second Dream, where it was shown to be 21 seconds faster than its predecessor on the Nürburgring race track. It completed its lap in under eight minutes.

Due to the predecessor's often critized heavy front, the R33 was built on a lengthened wheelbase that reduced the front weight percentage to 56% from 58%, although the R33 also became larger and gained 86 lb (39 kg). The longer front overhang increased high speed stability on the car, resulting in less front lift, which was also addressed with a reshaped front and an adjustable rear spoiler. In addition, rigidity was improved with suspension components such as strut tower bars on both ends, whilst grip performance was further improved with a wider tire tread.

The twin-turbocharged inline-six was reworked with an increase in boost that gives more torque, thus offering mildly better straight-line performance. The ATTESA-Pro all-wheel drive system was upgraded to support an active limited-slip differential.[3]

Performance

The R33 GT-R has a strong 0 to 60 mph time of 4.9 seconds, making it still competitive against cars from the following decade and equal to the newer R34 in that regard. It is also capable of a high top speed, topping out at 171 mph (275 km/h) and 162 mph (261 km/h) in older titles. In Forza Motorsport 5 and older titles, it is actually faster than the R34 although the latter has better acceleration at higher speeds.

In corners, the R33 takes advantage of its all-wheel drive traction and acceleration upon corner exits but is prone to understeer due to a high weight.
