Nissan Skyline GT-R Group A (1993 Hasemi Motorsport) - 1:18 Scale Diecast Model Car
If a car's success can be judged by its level of dominance over a racing series, then the BNR32-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R must be considered among the greatest automobiles ever created. Featuring technology levels formerly found only in the most advanced prototypes, the GT-R was developed with an eye on homologation for FIA Group A competition; their efforts resulted in a 600-horsepower, all-wheel-drive supercar that won every round of the Japanese Touring Car Championship between 1990 and 1993, as well as claiming three consecutive Australian Group A championships. In both cases, the GT-R was so utterly dominant that each racing series underwent rules changes for 1994 that legislated the Skyline out of competitiveness...in effect, the car was so good, it killed Group A.
Among the teams that benefited from the technological superiority of the BNR32 GT-R was Japan's Hasemi Motorsport, a hugely successful saloon and GT-racing outfit. Among their weapons was the #1 Unisia Jecs-liveried GT-R that took victory at the Suzuka round of the 1993 JTCC championship. This historic Skyline is the subject of a highly detailed 1:18-scale diecast replica by AUTOart. It features an authentically rendered cockpit that captures the advanced technology of the GT-R to perfection, as well as a wired-and-plumbed engine compartment and intricate trunk area that reveals an accurate fuel cell system.
SPECIFICATIONS: 1:18 scale (approximately ten inches in length). Diecast metal body, features opening hood, doors and trunk lid. Poseable steering.
PERFECT FOR: JDM enthusiasts. Touring car racing historians. Skyline devotees.
