Information and Specification

This is the model released from Autech Japan, Inc. in commemoration of 40th anniversary of Skyline. It was exhibited at the 32nd Tokyo Motor Show in 1997 with the concept of "Sports sedan of highest performance for grown-ups" and released in 1998. It shared the body with 4-door Skyline R33 but rear doors and rear fender were newly designed only for this model to replicate the wider fenders of the 2-door GT-R.

The exterior with smaller front spoiler and no rear spoiler created placid atmosphere. The interior for 4 passengers with bucket type rear seats was also unique. It was the first 4-door Skyline GT-R since "2000GT-R (PGC10)" released in 1969, and received favourable reviews.
