Tamiya Model Cars 1/24 Nissan Skyline GTR Car Kit
With blistering performance, the Nissan Skyline GT-R has made a welcome come-back to the Japanese motor sports scene. The legendary Skyline GT-R was first created in 1969 as a road-going racer, and immediately won praise from motor sports enthusiasts. In May, 1989, Nissan unveiled a reincarnation of this superlative automobile, 16 years after its previous GT-R. The power plant in this vehicle is a 2568cc, six cylinder, DOHC, 24 valve, twin ceramic turbocharged and inter-cooled 280 horsepower engine, which was designed from the outset for competition use. In order to effectively transmit this tremendous power to the wheels, the Skyline GT-R incorporates Nissan's original ATTESA E-TS variable torque-split 4-wheel-drive train, and a SUPER-HICAS 4-wheel-steering system. Combined with its refined multi-link suspension geometry, the vehicle minimizes the spin potential during hard competition running. Powerful ventilated disk brakes all-around ensures no fade stopping performance at the track or on the street. The aggressive body styling is sculptured by the massive front and rear blister fenders, front air-dam, and large rear spoiler to obtain down force performance. The hood and fenders are of aluminum for weight-savings. Packed with Nissan's latest automotive technology, the Skyline GT-R is unquestionably a world class performer.
