HJA bring you this super rare 1 owner Le Mans Edition Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R V-Spec. There were several limited editions of the BCNR33 produced by NISMO (Nissan's Motorsport division). The first, the LM version, was released in May 1996 to celebrate Nissan's participation in the 24-hours of Le Mans. Nissan released just 188 of this model to the Japanese market.
Based on the R33 GT-R, the LM Limited isn’t to be confused with the R33 GT-R LM. It should be; the names are almost identical. Anyway. The LM (not limited) was a one-off built for homologation so Nissan could go racing in the GT1 class at Le Mans.
Only 188 examples of the LM Limited were produced from May 1996. Eighty six of these wore the standard GT-R badge and the remaining 102 were built on V-Spec models. The only body colour available for the R33 LM was Champion Blue (BT2).
The car had a hood-splitter lip to direct air to the upper front aperture, the "GT-R Skyline" logo under the chequered flag was placed on the C-pillars, carbon rear spoiler blade amongst other additions.
Nissan entered two R33 GT-R cars in the 1995 Le Mans 24 hour race where the number 22 car finished tenth overall. This was remarkable considering it was essentially running the same RB26 motor and going up against supercars of that era like the mighty Mclaren F1 GTR.
Back to the car itself; Bodywork is immaculate and has to be seen to be appreciated.
It’s hard to believe this car was produced in 1996 as it almost looks like its rolled of the production line. All the panels are original and the car has 100% guaranteed no repair history which is exactly what you want with such a collectible car.
As you can see from the underneath pics the chassis is still in amazing condition. Everything still looks pretty much oem under there with no rust issues that unfortunately ruin so many of these amazing machines. The Interior is also in excellent condition, it retains the original factory steering wheel & gear knob which is a real testament to how well the car has been cared for. The dash is damage-free, the carpet and plastic trims around the whole car are in fantastic condition.
The GT-R Brand is now extremely sought after worldwide, and is considered the hottest thing in the burgeoning classic and performance car market.
Sourcing limited edition examples like this is like finding a needle in a hay stack especially in this condition. Overall if you are after a cherished example to enjoy yourself, to be part of a collection or as a great investment look no further.
