Nissan Skyline R33 NISMO 400R

1 of 44 produced

Introduction

“I find myself daydreaming about taking it on a road trip to Spa or maybe down to the Route Napoléon. Tokyo, Bathurst, the south of France, Exmoor… It’s all immaterial really. What matters is being in the 400R.” After Jethro Bovingdon tested this very 400R, those were the concluding words he scribed in his Evo magazine feature (December 2015 issue).

It was the Skyline’s “unique, almost savage focus on grip and agility” that had Jethro so smitten. Interestingly, ‘agility’ isn’t a word that’s usually associated with the R33, but Nismo’s engineers crafted 44 very special GT-Rs that handle quite brilliantly.

For us, the Nismo 400R, as released in 1997, is the very best iteration of the R33 Skyline GT-R. Out of the box there’s very little to find fault with, and really, it demonstrates how an infusion of select enhancements can transform the R33 into something truly special.
