It would be good to perhaps sticky this thread relating to the UK Domestic Market GT-R's or create another for those of us that are particularly interested in them.

Given their rarity, we could setup a discrete register that shared information about them, IE, list of numbers to indicate which are still either on the road or SORN'd whilst being sympathetic to people's concerns about cloning and privacy.

Wow. I can't believe I didn't notice this thread sooner. I've been wondering what the VIN ending 103 on my JN1GAPR33U UK R33 means, as there were only 100 "official" cars. It's a midnight purple V-Spec with leather and Kenwood + changer. No xenons, though. As a matter of fact, it's the old R777MTD featured in Mischief 3000 movie and it's now registered in Finland.

All in all, the car has gone through a lot and I'm apparently the third (fourth if you count my former company) owner. When it sort of fell into my hands it was in somewhat sad shape - massive spec (N1 block, HKS 2.7, Holinger H-pattern gearbox, GT2835R kit, HKS IC/downpipes/exhaust/clutch, Cusco diffs, AP brakes etc. - strange OS Type R stickers, along with being plastered with Gumball stickers) but during 115k miles it had been beaten to death. A fair amount of surface rust, not on the bodyshell itself but from beneath the car looks almost brown.

The engine has been rebuilt, turbos are new, clutch replaced and I found a set of NOS V-Spec springs and shocks for it. It's in dire need of metalwork to prevent anything from rusting through. I've had some plans for it, in terms of RB34 with low-mount twins and VCT + a complete LHD conversion, but I've been torn between its relative rarity and poor condition which affects its collectibility. Then again, the original drivetrain is long gone and there's little else going for it than its VIN number and UK spec bumpers...

Heku, I know a lot of the history of your car, I used to chat with Michael the original owner a lot down at Middlehurst. He spent a fortune on it back in the day.

The above^ doesn't state whether it's R32, R33 or R34?

if you go onto the website you can search by years so although not perfect it will give a reasonable estimate

Searching by years can possibly be misleading though, there was an overlap in 1999 with the R33/R34, mine is a 1999 R33.

Glad to see this thread bumped to the top - these are quite special cars.

If anyone does spot a UKDM Bumper on their travels, please either let me know or get the owner to give me a shout (should they wish to sell) as I'd very much like to purchase one.

That's interesting, Matt. I heard (and noticed) that someone had spent lots and lots of money on the car, basically thrown it with the whole HKS catalog and then some, and that person having been the original owner.

I hope this doesn't go too off topic for this thread (pm me if you prefer), but do you have any recollection of its former spec? At some point it has apparently had a sequential gearbox as there's a digital gear display between speedo and tach, and there are signs that the car has been modified heavily and constantly throughout its life. I've had it for about 8 years now, 5 of which it was just sitting in storage as a barely drivable project. Restoring it has been kept at a bare minimum so far, but my son absolutely loves it and I'll probably hand it over to him once everything has been sorted out.

Hi guys,

I just got my hands on a UK GT-R R33 V-spec series 3 Skyline! very happy!

It has the coolers -leather trim - etc. etc. The color is midnight purple!

I live in Denmark - Copenhagen - and Iīm trying to track the history of the car!

The car is in near mint condition - only 2 previous owners. itīs pretty stock besides Kakimoto exhaust and other air filters!

It has the plates T509 ALO and was registered first time 1 march 1999

It has a silver plate on the dash up left to the steering wheel! it says UK GTR no: 122 - was there not only 100 cars from Middlehurst?

I think itīs the last no on the UK 17 digit VIN no. says 122

The original servicemanual record books etc that comes with cars is not there - so Iīm trying to get at hold on the previous owners - the first owner had the car for 12 years!!!


Can anybody help out on my search for history - maybe some of you know the previous owners ??

Cheers

Per G.

Cph Denmark!

Only 100 UK R33 GT-R's were made, however the VIN numbers are apparently not sequential.

Mine does not have a plaque in it, however like most things Skyline, to assume it's all original, without extensive paperwork to back it up, is not possible.

Do you have a picture of the plate to share with us please?

There wasn't an ID plate inside the cars.
