This description is taken from the NTSC version of Gran Turismo 2:
The 280 MR is a unique car featuring distinctive Nissan Prince tuning. It is based on the ninth generation of the R33 Skyline series, the GTS25t (type M, spec 2) two-door sports coupe model that appeared in August 1993. The 280 MR has many great features, starting with its powerplant. The engine is increased in displacement to 2.8 liter, and has internal modifications including a special crankshaft and pistons. It needs them, as power output from this turbo motor is an incredible 300 BHP. It generates 95% of its maximum torque as low as 2400 rpm, for performance that rivals the GT-R. This car feels both direct and sporty, thanks to its use of Nismo parts for a lowered ride height, chassis reinforcement, and upgraded brakes. For an ever sportier look, you can choose the optional aero kit that includes a big bold rear wing and Nismo's LMGT2 aluminium wheels. Imagine the powerful road performance you get when 300 BHP of power is transferred via the rear wheels. The powerful engine and the front-engine, rear drive chassis is what makes the 280 MR special.
This car can be purchased at the Nissan Used Cars Dealership for around 19,000-24,000 Credits.
- Despite the real-life car being a tuned version of the FR drivetrain GTS25t, in GT2 this car is mistakenly represented as a 4WD car, using the drivetrain of the GT-R.
- In the NTSC-J version of GT2, the name of this car is misspelt as the Nissan Prince SKILINE 280.
