For sale I have my cherished R33 GTR. This is one of the cleanest examples of a sensibly modified R33 GTR in the UK. The car is running 414BHP at a very safe 0.9bar (dyno print out available) and in my opinion is in the ultimate, reliable fast road specification which can be used in the real world with the looks to match. The engine has not been stripped and is still ‘sealed from the factory’. It currently has 45978 miles on the clock. Taxed and tested.

This is basically like a brand new 1995 GTR, every single part has been checked and cleaned or replaced with genuine Nissan items or upgraded with top quality modifications.
Every belt, bearing, bush, fluid, sensor, clip, wiring, seal etc has been checked or replaced with either OE parts or quality upgrades.

History of this car is fully documented and this is a well known GTR.
This car has full and complete service history in the UK and in Japan with every document ever produced in its life including the original Nissan handbook and certificates and receipts of every modification carried out.

It has had coverage in many magazines. It won the runner up award in an Auto Glym national concourse competition.

The genuine Nismo bodywork on the car is very rare and worth many thousands, the quality needs to be seen to be appreciated. Along with the custom carbon fibre bodywork items I have added it really does stand out from other GTR’s. It also has all the supporting chassis and engine modifications to make it the complete package.

This car was brought over to the UK by New Era imports in 2005. It was professionally converted to UK use by them. It was then purchased by its previous UK owner who owned it for one year and used it for roughly 2000 miles and had fitted a top of the range Sigma alarm and immobiliser and fitted the gorgeous Bee R alloy wheels.

After a extensive search for the right GTR I purchased this one in 2006. I then began to slowly check the complete car over and build it into my unique, ‘perfect’ GTR. (I am a professional mechanical engineer.)
The car has been fully undersealed to preserve its life. It has only seen rain on UK roads 3 times in its life by accident and is only used through the summer months as a sunny day car. I am meticulous how I look after this car in every way from paintwork care to how it is warmed up, cooled down and used. It has never been abused, just enjoyed.

This write up really does not do this car justice, please contact me for any questions or details as I have many photos and details of my ownership and use of the car. The car is spotless with absolutely no faults. Someone in the market for a top quality GTR will not be disappointed, the car wants for nothing and can either be enjoyed as it is for many years to come or taken up to the next level. If it is looked after as much as I have done so it really will become a future classic.

All questions welcome. Serious buyers only please.

£19500

Simply beautiful. The first picture literally took my breath away! One of the, if not the, best looking GTR I've seen, I love it! Only thing I don't like is how it reminds me of how much I miss my GTR. :(

Thanks for all the positive comments.

I understand that this is up the top end of the price range for a R33 GTR but i welcome any inspection of this car as you will not find a cleaner or well cared for GTR around.

I am not too sure yet what to go for next, possibly a 350z or S15 or something similar.
I just dont use this car at all, take it out and do about 50 miles then spend the next 2 days cleaning it!

Any comments on this guys?
I have to say i was hoping this would sell quickly,the car looks very clean.

Shame you have dropped the price so much so soon,i feel that to sell a car like this you need to give it a few months.

People have to start realising that buying cheap GT-Rs can be a false economy.And stop comparing them to other GT-Rs.

Good luck mate :thumbsup:

So thats a reduction of £3500 in 12 days. Have you considered what a reduction like this does for the rest of the market :rolleyes:

Ian i can understand if your desperate to sell and need the fianaces but a car like yours should easily fetch the 'original' asking price if you gave it more time.

Anyway. Here's a free bump for a STUNNING R33GTR at a 'BARGAIN' price. Easily one of my favourite R33's!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Thanks for the response,

Could not agree more about your comments on cheap GTR's. The top ones still fetch a premium price, i think the initial purchase price and quality of car is what makes GTR ownership enjoyable or not.

Hi,

I see your thinking of selling, how come all the nice GTR's everyone is selling at the moment!? Yours is stunning also mate.

As for the price, well i initially set my price high but having looked around at the market and seeing what prices cars are making, not just GTR's but any cars i thought i had to adjust the price. I just feel its pointless leaving a car sat on here for 6 months with the odd bit of interest rather than lowering your bar slightly and getting a sale.

Not desperate to sell i just dont use it anymore and it seems a waste, i have done so much work, care and attention on it its just criminal to just leave it sat in the garage!

Same reason as you mate, the car did just over 200 miles last year and i just dont drive it anymore. Just got it back on the road, needs a service then it will be gracing this section after nearly 7 years of ownership.

Good luck with the sale, im sure it wont hang around long at that price, just dont drop it anymore as that would be more criminal than leaving it in the garage for a couple of months.
I always remember this and Alex's GTR's were the ones i feared coming up against the most in the Show n Shine comps :) Thats how clean it is! :cool:
