For Sale –


FULL SIZED PICTURES AT END OF THIS POST


2001 UK R34 Skyline GTR V-Spec (N1 engine) – Bayside Blue

• £32,500
• Private Sale
• 2001 UK Spec Car
• Bayside Blue
• Nismo N1 engine
• Approx 480bhp @ 1.2bar. (Flywheel).
• 58,000 miles on the car – only 18,000 miles on the engine


UK Spec

One of 80 original Middlehurst Motorsport UK Spec cars, with Connolly leather interior and oil / gearbox / diff coolers as standard.


N1 Engine

A brand new Nismo R34 N1 engine (see note below) was installed 18,000 miles ago. At this point modifications were undertaken to raise the output to a sensible “fast road” specification, including HKS GT-SS turbos and APEX-i Power FC.

Initial set-up saw an output of approx 440bhp ATH (approx 510bhp ATF) @ 1.4 bar. As the car was to be used as an everyday road car, where reliability, drive-ability, and a reasonable fuel consumption was crucial, I did not want the car to be running at its limit, therefore I requested that the power was reduced to its current level of 410bhp ATH (approx 480bhp ATF) @ 1.2 bar, and 375bhp ATH (approx 445 ATF) @ 1.0bar, switchable by the HKS boost controller.

(‘ATH’ = At the hubs, ‘ATF’= At the flywheel).

This has been more than adequate for me, but the scope is there to remap the power back to 440bhp ATH (510bhp ATF) @1.4bar with no further modifications - or potentially even further, as the GT-SS turbos could be mapped to ‘splash’ boost to a maximum of 1.6bar.

All modifications, N1 engine, and mapping were undertaken by the experts at Abbey Motorsport..

Note – For those not aware, the Nismo R34 N1 engine was the Nismo ‘uprated’ version of the standard RB26 engine. Uprated features include N1 block, N1 pistons, N1 con-rods, N1 crank-shaft, Nismo main bearings, N1 oil pump, and N1 water pump. The N1 engine was the standard engine on the competition focused R32/R33/R34 N1 spec cars, and the basis of the engine in the R34 NUR spec cars. This was chosen for my car as a stronger engine than the standard RB26, to ensure maximum reliability, and enable future potential for any new owner wishing to further increase the power.


Maintenance History and Condition

I have owned this car for the last 3 years, using it as an every day car, thus the majority of mileage is motorway, A-road, or trans-Europe. I have not tracked or abused this car, have always ensured full warm-up / cool-down, and always run on Shell Optimax (although mapped on 97 Octane for additional safety margin). Car is usually run at 1.0bar for the majority of the time, with 1.2bar used where appropriate.

Car has been maintained by Middlehurst Motorsport for about 1 year, then subsequently entirely by Abbey Motorsport. I have all paperwork and service history from day one of its life. Serviced approximately every 3000-4000 miles.


The car is in excellent condition, and has been well looked after. The front bumper will also be re-sprayed before sale to eliminate any stone chips.

I want it so bad mate. The only problem is that I just moved to Canada. Bloody regulations says I can't have R34's here. I had to sell my Midnight purple 00' just to pay my way here. :(.

What an amazing Skyline. You keep it mint, I hope you've sold it to someone worthy, and who will keep it as nice as you did.

SOLD

SOLD :)

Very sad watching someone else drive it away! :sadwavey:

I wish the new owner the very best of luck with it!

I also wanted to say thank you to all on this forum that have offered advice and assistance over the past 5 years that I have been a member. In particular, thank you to all the guys at Abbey who have been fantastic in the service they have provided to both of my cars over the last 6 years, and also special thanks to Peter Everett for all of the advice offered when deciding on the N1 engine and modifications.

I have "temporarily" migrated to the Porsche camp, but who knows what will happen when the new GTR is released :thumbsup:

Cheers for now,

Ben.
