|“||Unleash the Beast|
The legendary "Godzilla" - the Skyline GT-R Group A (BNR32) and the "Hakosuka" - the Skyline Hardtop 2000 GT-R (KPGC10), roar into RR3 with the 7-day Unleash the Beast special event. Celebrate 60 years of Skylines by taming them today.
After cancelling the Skyline GT-R in 1973, NISSAN revived the GT-R again in 1989. At the time NISSAN was competing in Group A Racing with the Skyline GTS-R. NISSAN wanted to retire the GTS-R in favor of a more competitive vehicle. The new generation GT-R, E-BNR32 chassis (commonly shortened to R32), was designed to dominate Group A racing.
NISSAN Kohki (NISSAN's power train engineering and manufacturing facility) originally tested a twin turbocharged 2350cc bored and stroked version of the RB25 engine. This set up produced 233 kW (313 hp) and used a RWD drivetrain. Under Group A regulations, a turbocharged engine must multiply its engine displacement by 1.7, putting the new Skyline in the 4000 cc class, and requiring the use of 10-inch-wide tires. Knowing that they would be required to use 10-inch-wide tires, NISSAN decided to make the car all wheel drive. NISSAN developed a special motorsport-oriented AWD system for this purpose called the ATTESA E-TS. Although this assisted with traction, it made the car 100 kg (220 lb) heavier; the added weight put the GT-R at a disadvantage to other cars in the 4000 cc class. NISSAN then made the decision to increase the displacement to 2600 cc, and put the car in the 4500 cc class, with the car's weight near-equal to competing cars. The 4500 cc class also allowed for 11-inch-wide tires. New engine block and heads were then developed to better match the increased displacement. The result was a 600 horsepower car. Later REINIK (Racing & Rally Engineering Division Incorporated NISSAN Kohki) produced Group A racing engines between 373–485 kW (500–650 hp) depending on track conditions.
Its successor is the R33, which in turn is succeeded by the R34.
