The Skyline R32 GT-R (Grand Tourismo Racer) — nicknamed “Godzilla” for effortlessly crushing all competitors in Group A Series racing — won 29 consecutive races in the Japanese Touring Car Championship and three consecutive championships in the Australian Touring Car Championship after being reintroduced by Nissan in 1989.

This remarkable track record is part of the reason the Skyline R32 GT-R has such a strong cult-like following among serious car enthusiasts around the world. Other reasons include impressive appearances in games and popular street racing movies like The Fast and Furious series, a reputation for having launched the JDM car scene, a leading role in serious street and drag racing, the exclusivity wrought by a 25-year import restriction in the United States — which finally ended in 2014 — and performance that is nothing short of incredible. If you want maximum bang for the buck, it’s hard to beat a well-tuned Skyline R32 GT-R imported directly from Japan.

On YouTube, you can watch grown men morph into excited little boys when they punch the GT-R’s pedal and get pressed against the seat. It likes to go fast, revving almost instantly to 8000rpm, and handles almost any road with assurance even after tuners have taken advantage of the unlimited potential of the chassis to upgrade the engine beyond a jaw-dropping 800 hp.

As Nissan’s flagship performance car, the Skyline R32 GT-R showcased some of the company’s most advanced technology. The 2.6-liter RB26DETT twin-turbo inline-six engine was extremely powerful, producing 600 hp in the racing version and 276 hp in the production version. This powerplant was matched with a 5-speed manual transmission, a race-tuned AWD system called the ATTESA E-TS, and a Super-HICAS four-wheel steering system.

The AWD and 4WD systems deliver phenomenal traction and handling. You can push the Skyline R32 GT-R hard around challenging corners without oversteer or wheelspin. It handles the road so effortlessly that even seasoned professionals are often shocked when they take a glance at the speedometer and tachometer.

The Skyline R32 GT-R may not look as streamlined and sporty as European and American supercars from the same era, but it outperforms most with relative ease. This unpretentious, understated styling is one of its many charms of the GT-R. Refined yet ready for business with clean lines, a long hood, four round headlights and a big, serious spoiler, the appearance only matches the aggressive performance when the body is painted up for races, movies and games. Many used Skyline R32 GT-Rs in great condition are just waiting for foreigners in Europe, America and elsewhere to purchase and import them from Japan.

The most sought after version of the Skyline R32 GT-R is the 1990 ‘Nismo’ (Nissan’s motorsport division) edition, because it closely resembles Nissan’s Group A racing cars in both style and performance. Nissan only produced 560 of these Gunmetal Grey gems and transformed 60 into racers.

Americans obsessed with the Skyline R32 GT-R have been waiting an excruciatingly long 25 years to import them from Japan without incurring the wrath of the law. Now that the wait is over, they can import pre-1991 versions from Japan with major import exemptions (except in California, where they must wait another 13 years!). The Skyline R32 GT-R is also quickly gaining value, making it a great investment.

Wherever you live in the world, you’ll find the best deals on a used Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R and other Japanese performance cars like the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, Toyota Supra TT and Impreza WRX STi are in Japan.

    5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

  • 5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit. Find me and call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

  • 5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

    5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.
