For some reason, the R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R has always fit the category of JDM cars. I got it. its Probably not the biggest car ever sold in the United States. But it deserves to be reconsidered as more than that, as it is in the same category as the BMW M3, the Subaru W.RX, Mitsubishi Ivo, as a Group A legend.
Every year, the most chosen members of Jalopnik – well, just me this year – have brought you the very best of Group C and GT1 racing since the 1980s and 1990s. We also did a Group B rally theme once. But for some reason we have never covered the most successful racing formula of all. This is the weird title Group a-smasWorthy of celebration.
Even I never really thought of the R32 GT-R as a Group A success story. It never runs in the same series because other homologations are associated with the particular formula. The legendary rally cars of Group A were built as legends by their rivals. Lancia went against Delta Integral Toyota Celica GT-Four against Subaru Impreza WRX Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The R32 is not a GT-R factor.
The story is similar for Group A heavyweight touring cars. The BMW M3 was only built as a means of bringing the Mercedes 190E back to Cosworth, and who knows if we even had a V8 Audis the company didn’t want to win its own championship. And videos are highlighted on YouTube in all DTMs, and R32 is not found in all press releases from BMW and Benz.
Nissan drove the R32 GT-R primarily on the home segment, competing in Japani Touring Car Championship under which Group a Rules. It took over once the R32 was charged. It won the championship in 1990. In 1991, It won the championship. In 1992 and 1993, well, yes, same story. It competed against the cars we know from Europe, the M3 and the Sierra RS500, but while any American could go out and Buy M3 and live part of its story, we are denied R32s by 25 YEar rule This video option is put away in DVD as part of A Group A, a ZDM story in Gran Turismo.
(I would also say that the R32 GT-R had some Group N history Too. Won under Sometimes lower level rules, Nü includesNurburgring.)
Is there any R32 liveroup a clot Perhaps, more obvious than the defining moment of the GT-R story. It is a car that goes from Japan to Australia and fielded the rest of the 1992 Group A group.
enough! This is the whole story! We should include the R32 GT-R as part of the history of the homologation special, as we include it in our Thoughts about JDM wonders and Bubble Era Majesties. It is not just a drift car, drag car, or a tuner car in waiting. This turned the relatively plain skyline into a display machine; I amt’s touring car, And the greatest to ever do so.
