I've owned and enjoyed this car for just over 2 years now and it's time to move onto something new. So here goes...

I brought this Skyline from the first UK owner (apart from the importer), he had other financial commitments that pushed him to sell. I ran it for about a year and then decided to have the engine rebuilt and up the power slightly from 380bhp to 440bhp (at the flywheel on 1bar). The main reason for the rebuild was piece of mind if I ever wanted to go chasing power.

I have a large amount of receipts/build sheets from both myself and the past owner, I also have all the original import papers and original sales advert.

EXTERIOR
The bodywork is nice and clean with a few marks but nothing major, the rear arches are starting to show signs of rust but again nothing alarming. Before the car was imported it was re sprayed white and I've kept it well washed with good quality polishes to keep it protected.
It's had the large rear spoiler removed and replaced with a nice low level one and extra bonnet pins to hold everything on a speed.
Very rear Nismo intercooler surround (with certificate)
BBS LM 073 et20 9x17 wheels, I have two sets one set in gold one set in silver. The gold set are factory original never split, the silver set have had some hard track/road work but are straight and hold air. I brought a second set so I could have a full sized spare. Second set can be brought at extra cost.

ENGINE
The engine has been rebuilt/refreshed (2012)
Forged pistons
Race bearings
Overhaul of head new valve guides,seals
Tomei poncams
Hks cam gears with clear cam cover
Sard 700cc injectors
Steel internal turbos
Apexi air intakes
Apexi exhaust and decat
Apexi power fc with hand controller
Hks intercooler and hard pipe
Hks oil cooler with ducting

When it was being rebuilt I also got a gearbox fitted as the old one had the usual 3rd gear crunch.

BRAKES
Brakes are R33 gtr Brembo's with r33 master cylinder
Fronts run endless two piece disks with Nismo pads
Rears Project mu disks with Nismo pads
Braided lines
I cleaned and copper slipped all the brakes late last year and there is plenty of life left on everything.
Cusco brake stopper increases brake feel when hard on the brake and stops firewall flex.

HANDLING
Hks coil over suspension
It's a firm ride but comfortable to travel (1500miles in France last year on holiday) and can easily be adjusted.
Nismo suspension arms.
Tomei three point front strut brace.
Nismo rear strut brace.
Cusco solid steering bush gives improved road feel.
Hankook v12 evo tyres plenty left on them, but the diff does give the edges a hard time


DRIVE TRAIN
Cusco 1.5 way diff which for fast road/track is perfect, it is a little noisy when maneuvering/parking but this is just how they are. It's the best handling and most predictable car I have driven and I put a lot of this down to a 1.5 way diff.
It's also got a Skylab controller which let's you run awd or rwd and anything in between.
OS Giken twin plate clutch.


INTERIOR
The interior is clean and tidy
Recaro fixed drivers seat (pole position)
Recaro recliner passenger seat
Scroth harnes's with auto control which alowes the harnes to be locked or give you movement like a seatbelt and then lock under load.
6point half roll cage
Mines dash dials and sub meters
Defi meters oil/water/boost
Tomei gear knob
Sparco sterring wheel which has a nice dish.
Full set of Nismo mats

All the controls are hidden away in the centre console Gizzmo boost controller/turbo timer/harness switch/defi unit/awd selector which means it's all neat with no wires running about the cabin.

The car is stored over winter, I do take it out if the roads are dry but otherwise it's left on a ctek battery charger over the colder months. I've done about 7000 miles since owning it and about 3000 miles since the rebuild.

Service
4 wheel alignment 01/06/13
Oil change a map check 15/06/13
Mot expires 09/2014
Tax expires 02/2015
This is most recent work carried out but I have all old invoices/services from myself and the previous owner. Plus Japanese service book all stamped.

To say I have enjoyed owning and driving this car is an understatement. Selling this car is not a decision that's been taken lightly so now is the rare chance to own a great example of an appreciating classic.

£10449

Any questions please don't hesitate to call.

No problem I'll keep an eye out for when it sells. I don't think it will take too long, it's a cracking example and well priced for the spec.
