S&S Limited Version

The Passion for Cars Will Never Fade

Throughout the half-century-long history of the Skyline, Shinichiro Sakurai has continued to set the standard for the best car each time.

The BNR32, which originally took on the GT-R name for the first time in 16 years, has an amazing background. This is a fact that is certain from its overwhelming strength in races. There are still many BNR32 fans. However, 10 Few BNR32s that have been around for over a year are still in the same condition as when they were announced.

That's why we want to further refine the excellent BNR32 with S&S technology and enjoy the pleasure of owning and driving it for a long time,'' he says passionately.

With the 21st century just around the corner, he was freed from various constraints and developed and released the BNR32 S&S Limited Version, which made the Skyline's original ideals even clearer by incorporating all the technology he had up until now.

The BNR32, which is his work and has been carefully crafted down to the smallest detail, is a car that allows you to enjoy the ultimate driving pleasure.
 
itmedia.co.jp Article from the announcement

Starting October 10th, Car Point will be mediating the sale of the light-tuned 350 horsepower R32 GT-R. The price is 4.45 million yen.

Car Point announced on October 5th that it will mediate the sale of the tuned car "BNR32 S&S Limited Version 1" based on Nissan Motor's "Skyline GT-R" (BNR32). This car was planned by Powerbuy.com, which operates a group purchasing site for cars, PCs, etc., and developed by S&S Engineering (S&S). Named after the BNR32, it will be released in a limited edition of 32 units. The price is 4.45 million yen.

Car Point started its used car sales brokerage service in May of this year, but tuned cars based on out-of-print cars fall into a rather special field. However, president Saburo Kikuchi is quite enthusiastic about the BNR32 S&S Limited Version 1, saying, "It's a unique car.We expect it to be a new form of automobile distribution, eradicating the image of used cars as being of poor quality." By the way, S&S is a tuning shop founded by Shinichiro Sakurai, the creator of the Skyline. The Skyline tune has a good reputation.

However, although it may sound nice to call it a tuned car, it is also generally referred to as a modified car. It is true that even if you park your bike in front of your house, you will be rumored to be a biker gang member in the neighborhood, making it difficult to obtain citizenship. However, the exterior of the BNR32 S&S Limited Version 1 has no inferior aero parts and is very elegantly put together. At first glance, you might think it's normal.

However, when you look at the engine, you realize that this car is a "wolf in sheep's clothing." Since we couldn't continue using the engine as it was, as it may have been abused, we replaced it with a brand new BNR33 engine and gave it an original tune. Additionally, the turbocharger is from the current BNR3. Although the maximum output is a modest 350PS based on chassis design, "This is not a car that competes for top speed.We want people to experience the high level of perfection." (Mr. Sakurai) Furthermore, to increase body rigidity, attention has been paid to even the invisible parts, such as filling the side sills with S&S' proprietary high-density closed foaming agent.

Also, like the exterior, the interior is simple. The only things that make a statement are the 320 km speedometer and the tachometer signed by Mr. Sakurai. It's not a commercial for a certain automaker, but it's a car that adults who have forgotten how to drive should drive.

Applications will be accepted starting at noon on October 25th (limited to the first 32 people, as the sale is limited). Vehicle purchase procedures will be completed at Powerbuy.com, and delivery will be made after December 1st. The company also offers referral services for trade-ins and loan sales, just like when purchasing a new car.
