What can we say.. the Deep marine blue Paintwork looks absolutely stunning, with only 496 being treated to this paintwork from factory makes it highly collectible. Garage Yoshida also decided whilst the engine was out, to paint the engine bay in body colour (the struts are still original) and was purely for aesthetic purposes.
For the performance side of things, Garage Yoshida opted for an OEM+ style of tune. A Fully Rebuilt motor with all weaknesses taken care of, the result is a reliable 500ps RB26DETT that can be enjoyed and driven like a stock car.
At the time of the rebuild (approx. 9,000kms ago) many other components (Drivetrain/suspension) were replaced/upgraded making this a comprehensive overhaul.
Gearbox is fluent with no crunches and the overhauled Nismo clutch is a dream to use. The Nismo dampers provide perfect performance vs comfort for a road going setup.
It’s not just clean on top, underneath is also in great condition with no major rust or bodged welding issues that end up costing tens of thousands to put right (just check the pics).
The R33 GT-R is now extremely sought after worldwide and is considered the next big thing in the burgeoning classic and performance car market.
Sourcing examples like this is like finding a needle in a haystack. Overall if you are after a cherished example to enjoy yourself, to be part of a collection or as an investment look no further.
