Built By Legends MINES Nissan Skyline R32 Restomod 20

While we use the term "restomodding' Especially with classics like this Camaro, The Mustang or possibly one 911 connect, that stretches Restomod repertoire on almost all vehicles. Because a restomod is basically nothing more than a classic that has been equipped with modern technology. And you can basically do that with all vehicles. So you are by no means limited to American classics, the old 911 or various British roadsters. With regard to Japan is of course the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R one such restomod candidate. And that's exactly what the team from "Built By Legends“ pre-buttoned. In the form of a snow-white R32 Skyline GT-R from MINE. Founded in 1985 by Michizo Niikura, MINE'S built its reputation on the R32, R33 and R34 Skyline platforms.

We are restored and modified specimen has one RB26 2,8 liter six cylinder under the hood, which was handcrafted by MINE's engine builder Toshikazu Nakayama at the time. Among other things, the engine performs via MINE'S VX-ROM ECU (software). 500 PS. He provides in combination with the OEM titanium sports exhaust from Built By Legends x MINE, as well as an empty weight of only 1.357 kg and a maximum speed of 8.000 rpm, for a deafening spectacle and acceleration at the level of current athletes. Even then, there were also tailor-made models for the Japanese coupe Ohlins damper with hyperco springs and also one Brembo sports braking system (Brembo F50, 4-piston front calipers with 355mm RDD two-piece discs, Brembo 360 rear calipers and 343mm RDD two-piece discs) was installed. It has been specially adapted to the vehicle by MINE'S.

The R32 got a new one 5 layer-Painting in combination with many carbon parts, with lots of renewed or restored and powder-coated Share all around and with a new Interior.
