After many years on the forbidden fruit list, the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R is fair game in America. While most manufacturers are selling cars with more features and corresponding price hikes, Nissan is bringing out a less expensive GT-R trim, called Pure, to the lineup. For the Nissan GT-R safety features, it has safety kits included- front, side and curtain airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, front and rear parking sensors, reverse camera and proximity radar with obstacle detection.

The Nissan Skyline GT-R is currently owned by Munich-based car restoration firm GT-A. Twin turbos strap to its engine, and that power spins out through a dual-clutch transmission to all four wheels through an exceptionally quick-acting all-wheel-drive system.
When the 510 hit American shores badged as a Datsun, it offered buyers a unique combination of features at a low price, undercutting the BMW 1600-2 (a car with very similar specifications) by nearly a fifth of the BMW's price.
