Nissan Skyline GT-R V Special Sportscar

Nissan's 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 1990's, 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 '95 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.

The race prepared, "V-Spec" model is equipped with Nissan's state of the art ATTESA E-TS PRO variable torque split four wheel drive system. It efficiently distributes the available power to the front and rear wheels, plus controls torque distribution between the left and right rear wheels, achieving perfect four-wheel traction control. The front and rear multi-link suspension is further sport oriented for competition and class performance. The Brembo brake system is used on all four wheels, for positive stopping power. The huge rear spoiler has an adjustable stabilizer, to produce the desired downforce. The massive front and rear blistered fenders, plus a large front air-intake, give the GT-R its very aggressive look.

"first model"
griffin51 (Pasco, WA)
Bought for a pre-teen grandchild as first attempt into modeling and off the computer playing useless games. As he picked out the model, it was a worthwhile project that he caught the modeling bug from. No problems, parts fit well, enough detail for him to learn the art of painting.

"Excellent model!"
Have a few different versions of the GT-R and every single one is excellent. From this version to the R34 and the newer R35, they're all a must have. Easy instructions, easy assembly, and perfect specs.

"simple kit"
bmorris (United States)
This kit seems simple with no motor or opening hood but it seems quite detailed in the interior and suspension. I look forward to assembly because I like the car so much. The instructions are clear and the castings are very clean this is my first tamiya kit and I can't wait to see how good it looks completed.


  • Keep small parts and sharp edges away from children ages 3 and under.
  • Care should always be taken when using tools and modeling knives.
