The Mine's R33 Skyline GT-R is a Tuned car produced by Mine's, but is listed as a Nissan car in its only appearance in Gran Turismo 2. The car is a tuned version of the Nissan SKYLINE GT-R N1 (R33) '95.
The Mine's BCNR33 GT-R N1 base is the machine specially prepared by Mine's, based on the top-of-the-range R33 Skyline GT-R V-Spec N1 version. The tuning techniques employed were the same as in the case of the R32.5 GT-R, used here to bring out the maximum potential of the normal GT-R model. The power unit is the RB26DETT, featuring 1.2mm thick metal head gaskets,and utilising Showa Super Camshaft units on both intake and exhaust sides. To this are fitted the Mine's proprietary computer ROM, 600cc high capacity fuel injectors, GT2530 twin turbines, and Mine's original front pipe and muffler for the exhaust system. An Earl's oil cooler is also fitted to fix oil temperature problems. Although the engine still appears quite normal, the final output of 630ps and 63kgm of torque produced are truly stunning. The clutch is twin carbon and carbon fibre is also employed in the propeller shaft. This use of carbon fibre also extends to many of the other body parts. The suspension is the ESTA Suspension Professional Edition, with the spring rates set at 12kg on the front and 10kg at the rear. In addition, a tower bar is included and all the bushes have been changed to the Sports Link Kit. In the braking department also, an original Brembo-based Mine's brake kit is used, featuring an inch up of the normal 0.5 ratio rotor. Furthermore, an interesting point is the inclusion of the Attessa ET-S using an active LSD in the R33 GT-R PRO. On top of all this, Falken RS Tune II tyres are fitted to the Mine's original LM Evolution 17" wheels. In this configuration, the car managed a 0'58.757 lap time on the Tsukuba circuit.
