Every day, we come into a Jalopnik office, open my laptop and blog a blogs. we also have a apart window always open and one eye lerned on my TweetDeck, that is how we saw this poetic red 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R cocktail adult on Bring a Trailer. we consider a shininess is what initial held my attention.
I mean, only demeanour during it! Glossy and in that shade of ideal firetruck red that’ll certainly warning each patrolman within a 30-mile radius. Right-hand drive, too. It overtly looks like a ideal Skyline.
But wait up, what’s this? An aftermarket tailpipe?
And aftermarket wheels?
I review a inventory many closely. “Modified example”? Oh, no. The mods are as follows:
- GReddy T78-33D turbo kit
- GReddy intercooler and oil cooler kit
- GReddy Type R blow-off valve with a recirculation kit
- Stainless plural and outmost dump wastegate
- Blitz twin intake filter pack with upgraded mass atmosphere upsurge sensors
- Blitz LM radiator
- HKS Super Dragger exhaust
- HKS boost controller
- Multi-plate high-performance clutch
PLUS a CO fiber front spoiler and “rear wing extension.”
I felt my heart sink. The automobile is too mutated for my possess tastes. Let me be clear, I’m not opposite mutated Skylines. we only wouldn’t wish someone else’s mutated Skyline.
Maybe somebody else out there—someone braver, no doubt—will wish this red Skyline. Maybe that someone is you. At a time of this writing, a stream bid is adult to $2,500. You can do it! Buy it and tell me if it’s indeed this glossy in person.
Do me one preference though: Change those wheels.
