Nissans new Skyline GT-R was unveiled in January 1995, almost one and a half years later than other Skyline stable"s model change. During the early 1990s, the previous GT-R recorded countless victories, not only on the Japanese racing scene, but also in several foreign countries including the Macao Grand Prix and the Spa Francorchamps endurance race in Belgium. Like its predecessor, the 1995 Skyline GT-R was designed to continue its motorsports legend from the ground up. The powerplant for the GT-R is a 2.6 liter, in-line 6 cylinder DOHC, twin turbocharged unit. Although the maximum horsepower output is maintained at the same 280hp as before, torque was increased by using a higher turbo boost.
