Just fantastic to be back after 4 years without one for the road, not the greatest pictures but hey who cares :smokin:



1997 33GTR UK spec supplied new by Middlehurst

Only done 35000 from new, leather as standard etc.

Running 450 bhp & has a complete new engine rebuild courtesy of Abbey Motorsport, all standard apart from a couple of carbon bit's & pieces.

Just running the car in at the moment & it drives like a dream - roll on Spa !!

Hi fellas,


Malc - herman got swapped for a kitchen ... :D
They are works wheels
Yes they are standard Nissan seats that came with the UK spec 33's.
A cracking find and all thanks to Abbey who have had the car a while, Tony was planning to have this one for himself but after a bit of persuasion really kindly agreed to let me get my mits on it.

It's a lovely car & well worth waiting for, has been a while since the last but this one has definitely brought the smile back :smokin:

Nice motor and alloys too:thumbsup: Get some tire shine on there:).
My 33 is a 97 spec and also originated from middlehurst. Does anyone know if middlehurst prepped all there 33's to the same level in terms of engine mods and stage 1 tuning? 272 cams? external wastegate?

Will update next week after the interior is redone.
have taken it to these guys ClassicCarServices.co.uk

Nothing bright or garish just a refresh throughout (black perf leather + black alcantara) but should look great :cool:
had some great fun with it so far around Zolder & the Ring - just great to be back in one for the road :cool:
