1000HP Nissan Skyline GTR R32 Massive Turbo 300km/h on Autobahn


The speedometer needle on this Nissan Skyline can wrap completely around the dial and stop just before the zero mark thanks to its tremendous power. Only the GPS can tell you how fast the car is moving on the autobahn.

The R32 generation Skyline GT-R was the first car to use this model designation in 16 years when it made its debut in 1989. Nissan made sure to make a strong return. The RB26DETT’s 2.6-liter twin-turbo inline-six provided the power. Due to a gentleman’s agreement among Japanese automakers not to publicise values higher than this figure, the official output was 276 horsepower (206 kilowatts). Most likely, the real figure was greater. The ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system and a five-speed manual gearbox made up the drivetrain.

The one shown in this video is not a stock model. It still features a 2.6-liter inline-six engine, but the original two turbos have been replaced by one enormous turbo. An estimated 1,000 horsepower (746 horsepower) and 710 pound-feet are produced (963 Newton-meters). Looking at when the driver changes gears, it appears that the engine’s redline is somewhere about 9,000 rpm. The original manual transmission is replaced by a six-speed sequential gearbox.

With a four-figure power output, this GT-R accelerates with ease. The driver can swiftly pick up speed by slamming through the gears. The dial is blank past 180 kph (112 mph), where the speedometer needle spends a lot of time. On one run, the GPS momentarily displays 302 kph (188 mph).

In 1995, the R32 generation Skyline GT-R was replaced by the R33 model. Although the RB26DETT was still used, the exterior appearance was a little bit more streamlined.

The entire range of R32 Skylines is available for importation into the United States because cars must be 25 years old or older. The GT-R is the top of the line, but there are also lower grades with inline-sixes and even four-pot engines that are less potent. Some of these engines also come in a sedan body style.
