Used Nissan Sedan

Used Nissan Sedan - Skyline GTR 33

Why is the Nissan Skyline GTR 33 is so popular?  Perhaps because this monster of a sedan can hit 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds; and if you press the gas pedal a little bit more, you can reach 100 mph in just 12.3 seconds.  No wonder the Skyline is also fondly called “Godzilla.”  But is it all about speed?

Because first glance at the Nissan Skyline GTR 33 wouldn’t make that argument compelling; it looks large. But the outside dimension may be deceiving because the Nissan Skyline is the size of VW Passat or Suburban Legacy although it packs far more power.

Except for the bucket seats, you’ll never notice that the car could go for high speed rides or comfortable city cruise. These seats give the driver the stability when negotiating tight maneuvers.  The car’s suspension, break system, aerodynamic exterior design, and sleek but simple interiors complete the package.

A sports car that could sustain such power must have better suspension and the Nissan Skyline has them. Underneath, fixed suspension arms are fitted all around reinforced with stiffer bushings and wider geometrical spacing.

With a speedster like Nissan Skyline GTR 33, one may wonder if its brakes could handle such power. The car is fitted with a sophisticated braking system that makes use of ventilated discs. The ABS systems and large ducts (four in front and two at the back) to cool and prevent the discs from heating are very useful for breaking at high speeds.

A flatter windshield regulates the flow of air. Two diffusers – front and a carbon fiber rear diffuser – help pull the car to the ground as it accelerates. This ensures better handling in high speed, further improved with a dual-type rear wing adjustable to four different settings.

The Nissan Skyline is a mean car with amazingly good performance. Its only drawback seems to be its nose-heavy body. In the hands of an expert, the car could be extremely fast and furious.
