Although our example is a standard GT-R, it features the N1 model’s two rectangular front bumper scoops and small front spoiler on the leading edge of its hood.

Our R33’s odometer reads 92,594 kilometers. That’s just 57,535 miles. Its white paint is original, and it still wears all of the correct badging.

All-wheel drive was standard on the R33 GT-R, as was electronic rear steering, a five-speed manual transmission, and Nissan’s celebrated RB26DETT engine, one of the greatest inline-sixes of all time.

The twin-turbo 2.6-liter RB26DETT was rated for 276 horsepower, which was a voluntary power ceiling agreed to by all Japanese automakers at the time. Redline is 8000 rpm.

The R33 V-Spec model we tested back in 1995 hit 60 mph in 5.3 seconds and covered the quarter mile in 14.0 seconds at 104 mph.

Open-element air filters are a common upgrade and the only engine modification on our test car. Its suspension and exhaust are also stock.

Our test car’s wheels and tires have been swapped for newer units, but they keep their stock size.

Inside our R33 test car, the only mods are its aftermarket steering wheel, shift knob, and audio head unit.

You sit upright in old GT-Rs, and the stock seats are well bolstered and covered in grippy cloth.
