After successfully introduced the R32 series, Nissan built a special version to get a homologation to race the vehicle in various championships.

Nissan introduced the Skyline R32 in 1989 to compete in the Group A racing series in Japan and other countries where it dominated the race-tracks. In fact, it demolished its competitors in Australia until the race-rules were changed and banned all-wheel-drive vehicles from Group A. The same story was applied for Audi in the U.S. The GT-R V-Spec version was the one that brought more joy for the drivers. Nissan built only 2800 units of the V-Spec version.

There was a different skirt at the front and a different wing in the back on the outside. For the V-Spec version, Nissan installed 17” light-alloy-wheels with a specific, twin five-spoke design. Its side skirt was wider than on a regular GT-R, and the rear flared wheel-arches made the car wider. It managed to stay inside the same overall dimensions as the regular version due to the door-mirrors.

Inside, the car featured a pair of race-bucket seats with integrated headrests and passage-through for a four-point harness, even though the carmaker sold the car with regular, three-point seatbelts. In the back, it was the standard bench profiled for two passengers. In the instrument cluster, Nissan installed a gauge showing the amount of torque sent to the front wheels.

Under the hood, the V-Spec featured the same RB26, twin-turbo engine. It was officially rated at 276 hp, but in reality, all of them were making over 300. Otherwise, it was hard to believe that the car could do a 0 to 60 mph (0-100 kph) run in less than five seconds.
