Available now is this fully restored R33 GT-R. This R33 is unlike any other on the market today. This car was formerly owned by a Formula 1 engineer and under his ownership, was subject to an open checkbook restoration. A Formula 1 engineer is a highly skilled professional with traits such as a deep understanding of mechanical and aerodynamic principles, attention to detail, and adaptability. These qualities are crucial for designing and optimizing the performance of an F1 car. These traits have also been applied to building a high-performance car for personal use, ensuring optimal performance, safety, and the pursuit of perfection.
This car’s RB26 heart provides a smooth delivery of power following the boost-up metholdolgy. The exhaust piping has been uprated for better flow & sound with the use of HKS goods from a front pipe to intakes. The noise is a clean, whirldwind of the famed RB tone with a nice touch of the quintessential turbo noise. The end result of the noise is provided by an extremely rare 35th Anniversary HKS Super Turbo titanium exhaust system. Cooling system has been completely refreshed with an oversized fan, all new silicon hoses refreshed and has been upgraded with a Koyorad radiator. The car gets onto power strong & keeps consistent through the powerband. To further the efficiency of this RB26, an HKS intake and exhaust cam gear has been added to maintain adjusted timing. This 600+ AWHP Skyline gets on boost early in the rev range and has been built to favor responsiveness, meaning midrange is the sweet spot for the power band. A set of GT2860R-5’s spool up effortlessly, throw you back in your seat, and pull until redline. 40+ hours were spent just on drivability tuning and perfecting the flex fuel system. Tuning included dialing in the flex fuel system to expedite e85 cold/hot starts, eliminating the typical longer crank time of corn fed vehicles. The main focus of tuning was not only to get systems dialed in, but to create a “domesticated” beast that is easy to live with. THIS is the ideal expression of what an RB26 should feel like.

The entire Skyline bloodline’s foremost focus.
This R33 lacks no comfort, nor does it lack grip. The parts curation on the machine was done so with ease, and a particular approach to be able to share the car with both the street & track. A set of Ohlins DVF coilovers set the precedent for the rest of chassis, providing on tap comfort and grip. This car has no issues with rough roads, or off camber situations. It is genuinly a relaxed cruising session if you so choose. Thanks to an assortment of upgraded arms, the car has amazing turn-in capability and an adjourning enhancement in grip for spirited situations. Brakes grab well with a very sporty touch to the pedal. This is thanks to a combination of DBA slotted rotors, a set of rebuilt Brembo calipers and Ferodo pads.
Clean as a whistle.
The car is in phenomenal shape. Inside, the previous owner kept all materials and finishes pristine. The paint job is 4 years old and there is some blistering on the driver quarter panel that can be fixed but not urgent. The wheels, lighting, down to the exhaust pipe shows very tidy. Within the cabin you’ll find a beautifully kept set of seats, Nardi classic steering wheel & accompaniments. Upkeep aside, the conidtion of the carpet assumes that the vehicle was regularly steam cleaned. There is zero rust anywhere, nor are there any leaks. At the risk of exaggerating, the car is labratory clean.
Additionally, car is sponsored by Falken, won best Resto-Mod at Wekfest SFL and was just shot for Super Street, set to be published in the coming months.
