I really enjoyed reading this thread. I was the first owner of chassis no.74 in BB. The car was registered with X2 GTR and I believe still carries that plate. The has had 5/6 owners and is currently off the road. I saw the car for sale about 10 years ago but its probably in a collection now.

Most probably T3 GTR!
Going by Your previous post heer on the Forum, Then wouldn't it more likely be "T6 GTR" DrDickDatsunly?!


Interestingly again we see that plate swapping was standard practice with the press fleets. T6 was the only press car to have the red leather option but here we see T3 with that exact spec! In this top gear clip however, T3 is “Back in Black” (no pun intended)



Since You've already mentioned frequently swapped plates, How on Earth do You keep track on what Car's actually been Featured? This is not a dig, I'm genuinely interested as I have my Own problems with UKDM R33 Press Fleet Record Keeping. I've been recently looking through some of my old Car magazines thanks to "Corona-Chan" free time and found some past Articles to raise an eyebrow or two.....



I didn't collect many BNR34 Mag Features as BCNR33's are more my kind of thing BUT You can definitely see these are different R34 Skyline GT-R's with the exactly the same UK registration Plates for different Publications!



And this isn't an isolated incident either.....



Where "T4 GTR" was once on Nissan GB's existing Press Car :-







That was originally registered as "MV02 XWL" as it made its first magazine Debut.







But of course, We all know it better in its current form as "V16 SKY" :-









So, How can we find out for sure which car was used when and what happened to it after its Press Duties were eventually done?





Hmmmmm.......:unsure:o_Oo_Oo_O

As you say with so many plate swaps going on, its hard to keep track of what’s what here.
The only thing I can confirm is that the car in that picture is definitely NOT T6!
I mentioned T3 as it was the only other press car that appeared with the red leather interior option (as you can clearly see in the pictures posted)
I was told that the red leather option was a one off in the press fleet but I suppose 4 black and 2 red would make sense numbers wise The red interior could also have been swapped over after the incident !
Another snippet is that the T3 plate was transferred on to a later Red UK R34 back in the day after the original was trashed.
The registration plate in the photo appears to look like a W prefix, so it might not be a press car at all?
The original T4 press car was also pranged but was reputedly repaired. This plate was then transferred, first on to a UK series BB car and then on to the silver car still owned by Nissan GB.
This car latterly became V16 SKY, when T4 moved on to the R35 models.

This is why I was confused after already You'd said this contradictory Post on Page 19 of this very Topic :-

Not a dig at anyone, But this is why I Posted up those Pictures of "T3 GTR" and its Red Interior for some possible clarification.

Indeed! I wonder if anyone in the know would care to speculate as to which one of the many Press Cars could've possibly worn "R1 GTR" in that Autocar magazine Feature?:geek:

I own No 34, Bayside Blue - W7 GTR

I used to be on the forum years ago, my brother has owned a few 33 GTR's too.

I have had the car over 10 years and it has covered 16k from new.

A little late to the party but i thought a few people may want to know.
