Nissan SKYLINE R32 GTS-T – Time attack machine

This photoshoot has been already published on the-lowdown.com website and it means that I can show them here. This Nissan SKYLINE R32 GTS-T is a very interesting project on a tight schedule. Custom sport car was built by Chris Johnson to participate in time attack racing. The first debut was at 2013 World Time Attack Challenge in Sydney. Read more and scroll down for photos

Chris bought the car in 2012, everything was removed from the chassis and building process began. The main goal was to finish everything in 3 months. The car was powered by RB25DET engine producing 421kW and 950Nm of torque with the help of a Garrett GTX 3576 62mm ball-bearing turbine.

It is hard to say what left from the original car so below is full specs:
