Nissan Skyline GT-R: Safari Build with 525 HP

R32: Equipped for Rugged Trails

Recently, YouTuber Adam LZ concluded his Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R Safari structure with a powerful engine tune and numerous off-road external elements. Astonishingly, this motor vehicle was consummated with the backing of Nissan Motorsports International (NISMO) providing fog lamps with rally-style lighting, plus a roof rack and a steel front bumper which bears an intimidating appearance.

The recently-covered Dodge Challenger Hellcat 4×4 has a Japanese domestic market “cousin,” the R32, asramatically highlighted in a recently released video. The clip demonstrates that the automobile’s already sports an extended suspension and is notably higher off the ground than when it left the factory. Assistance from a variety of garages enabled Adam to create this impressive modification.

After it was brought to Monster Performance in Florida, the aftermarket PWR aluminum intercooler had been fitted and a tune was carried out. Dyno results indicated that with 93 octane fuel the turbocharged RB26 engine would produce 420 horsepower at 14 psi, rising to 525 hp when operating on an ethanol-based tune at 22 psi. The shop also equipped the car with a toggle feature for the ATTESA all-wheel-drive system which allowed variation of power distribution.

Adam enlisted the help of NISMO in order to equip his vehicle with off-road components. Unsurprisingly, these parts had been designed specifically for a Nissan Frontier and thus required a fair bit of custom fabrication, including welding, in order to fit onto Adam’s R32. To make it happen, he enlisted the expertise of Bell Raceworks.

significantly of the imposing NISMO front grille had to be severed and transformed into a specific component for a tube-style bash shield. The constructor as well provided additional brackets for increased solidity, plus supplementary underbody armour plates.

The outcome is an off-road ready Skyline R32 GT-R that would have been created by Nissan if their timeline had transpired in this way. Had this concept gone into fruition, a present day R35 GT-R safari vehicle could have completely rivaled the Porsche 911 Dakar and Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato.

“The build is now ‘technically’ finished, and the only thing left to do on the car is reduce the size of its NISMO rack to fit a smaller roof. We’re still yet to witness this Skyline’s performance on a dirt road, and we can’t wait to find out what it can do!”
