There is a car local to me (Wirral UK) White R33 GTR (R Reg) going for £12,495!!?. 49,000m miles. But it says it's a 2.5 litre Single Turbo model. I was (and some of fellow FTO owners friends were) under the impression that an R reg R33 GTR would be 2.6 litre twin turbo. Is this car a GTS in a GTR body kit - or was there a model released that would fit the description.

How can I tell? I'll pick up the chassis number and engine block number this afternoon for further reference. I've seen the DVLA doc and it does indeed say GTR Coupe.

I'm stunned by the price and excited, but I don't want to let it go to my head.

Any advice is welcome. Thanks for your time.

Sounds like a GTS. R33 GTRs have "BCNR33" chassis numbers while GTSs have "ER33"

The 2.5 engine you are reffering to is called an RB25DET, and this will also be written on the chassis plaque inside the engine bay.

GTS-T

Fantastic Guys. Awesomely quick response.

Thanks a lot.

It's still on autotrader if you want to confirm that it IS the car that used to be at warrenders.

Thanks again all. Suddenly 12.5k don't seem too good an offer.
