The Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) is the third generation model of the Nissan Skyline GT-R sports car series.

The R32 and all its subsequent replacements are powered by a 2.6 litre twin-turbo inline-six engine that sends its power to the wheels through a 4WD system. On both axles, the GT-R uses a multi-link suspension.

The R32 GT-R enjoyed great success in the FIA Group A touring car category, earning it its 'Godzilla' nickname by an Australian motoring publication.

As a tribute, the V-Spec (short for victory specification) was released in 1993, featuring a revised 4WD setup derived from its motorsport counterparts, Brembo brakes and 17" BBS wheels.

The GT-R R32 performs similarly to the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 V-spec, because of an identical acceleration, weight and nitrous boost. However, it is more prone to understeer in corners than the R34, giving it an inferior handling. Standard top speed is 158 mph (254 km/h).
