The R32 GT-R model was first released in 1989 to immediate fanfare and the amazement of sports car fans around the world. Designed from the start to compete in Group A production car racing, the R32 GT-R was taken to the Nurburgring Nordschliefe for testing, where it beat the production car lap record of the time by 25 seconds. The R32 GT-R was so dominant in Group A racing that many feel that the car led to the formula's demise, as well as the split of the Japanese Touring Car Championship into two different formulas. Winning the legendary Bathurst 1000 race in 1991 and 1992 led to the Australian press labeling the car 'Godzilla' because it was a monster from Japan. All of this racing success led to a massive increase in exposure and popularity among sports car fans around the world. The Skyline name started appearing in television shows, comic books and video games in the mid-1990's. Ever since then, the name 'Skyline' has always been one of the first cars mentioned when car fanatics discuss modern supercars. We are proud to present the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R in a variety of actual Nissan production colours, rolling on replica mesh wheels. Clear windows and a stylish driver figure with full interior help complete the scale look and draw the viewer's eye to the scale looks of the car as it drives. Performance upgrades will be available, however our version is designed to be as true to scale as possible, to please car and slot car fans alike. #8501 NISSAN Skyline GT-R (R32) Gunmetal Gray Metallic #8502 NISSAN Skyline GT-R (R32) Crystal White #8503 NISSAN Skyline GT-R (R32) Red Pearl Metallic #8522 NISSAN Skyline GT-R (R32) Jet Silver Metallic
