She is Absolutely stock and VERY VERY quiet!! Was very Dissapointed by that!! Also, the Rear tyres were HUGE!! And i believe this is not a GT R! So what is the Difference BEtween An R33 And an R33 GTR??? or is there no such thing??

If I am not mistaken, the normal R33 pumped out around 140-200+ horsepower and might have had a single turbocharger, where as the R33GTR was a twin-turbo 300+ horsepower model

This is the first one in Bombay. There is a similar looking one in Chennai that is supposedly 700 bhp.

There is the R33 GT-S which is a 2.5 litre single turbo producing 250 bhp. The GT-R is a 2.6 litre twin turbo producing 280 bhp. There were very few limited editions called the 400R which pumped out 450 bhp and a few N1 models which were around 350 bhp with no ABS. If you guys remember that Maroon R33 at the BKC expo in '06, that was a GT - 2.5 non turbo, 190 bhp.

Cyrus, what makes you say that this is not the GTR? If you got a look at the front grill, it would have the GT-R badge on it. This is definitely not the V-Spec.

Talking Nissan Skyline R33 in Autocar Expo

I thought of Posting some Pictures which i captured of this Notorious Japanese Car NISSAN SKYLIN R33.......I saw the guy opening the boot for display and was surprise to see the boot lock hidden under Nissan Logo.

Well, It has a different Front Bumper Now. Also, I am sure that that particular sign is what lead some people to go all the way to get almost 4 digit Horse Power Figures!!!

My friends wife had asked the guy to rev the engine and he did. Very disappointing note. I don't see any use of those tips except looks.
