Nissan will build new parts for the legendary Skyline R33 & R34 GT-R
Last year Nissan announced it's NISMO Heritage Program producing new parts for classic Nissan models, originally the program offered 80 parts and was limited to just the R32 Skyline GT-R. This year Nissan adds the R33 & R34 generations into the program as well a doubling the available inventory to around 160 different parts.
The parts include exterior elements, power-train, electrical and various mechanical components. The program includes parts essential for vehicles to retain their safety and performance but also more miscellaneous and increasingly hard to find elements such as weather strips or window switches.
NISMO Heritage Program is a joined effort between Nissan, NISMO and Japanese tuning company Autech, the program not only offers manufactured parts for these vehicles but also offers over-hauled and NISMO tuned parts if originals can't be re-manufactured for some reason.
The parts were presented at the NISMO festival in Japan where the public could sample the parts and enjoy 60-years of Nissan performance cars Fuji Speedway. Nissan says that NISMO Heritage Parts program might continue expanding depending on interest.
Skyline GT-R is one of the most iconic Japanese sports cars of the '90s, the R32 generation gained the nickname 'Godzilla' by absolutely dominating the touring car racing scene in the first half of the '90s. The car won the Australian touring car championship in 1991 and 1992, in Japan "the R32 scored wins in every Japanese Touring Car Championship race during the 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993 seasons".
