"The top grade model of the R33 GT-R, with the ATTESA E-TS Pro system."

When the new ninth-generation Skyline sedan, the R33, was introduced in August 1993, one model was conspicuously missing from the lineup: the GT-R. The R32 GT-R was still being sold at dealerships (all the way through November 1994), and Nissan engineers were working overtime to create a car that surpassed the R32. The car was unveiled at the 1993 Tokyo Motor Show, but fans still had to wait until January 1995 for it hit dealerships.

Many had their doubts whether the R33 could surpass the awesome performance standards set by the R32, but it not only met everyone's expectations, it surpassed them, proving this in a television commercial called "Minus 21-second Dream." It showed the R33 running the famed Nürburgring race course 21 seconds faster than the R32.

Under the R33's hood, which was now made of aluminum along with the front fenders, sat the RB26DETT, but this one was more refined. It pumped out a whopping 276 BHP at 6800 rpm and 276.2 lb-ft of torque at 4400. Gear selection was performed through the 5-speed manual gearbox that sent power to all four wheels via Nissan's ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system. Also included in the handling mix was an active LSD, strut-tower bar, and powerful ABS-equipped Brembo brakes.

To commemorate its entrance in the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans race, the LM Limited was introduced in 1996.

  • This is the only R33 Skyline model to appear in Gran Turismo 3.
  • This car was originally planned to be available in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, as evidenced by several prerelease screenshots depicting the car, but it was removed during the development of the game.
  • In Gran Turismo 1, the logo in the Arcade Mode car selection says that the Nissan Skyline GT-R (R33) is the V-spec trim (nv34n), however the game incorrectly calls the regular GT-R R33 instead (nr34n). This is evident when you finish the race or in a pre-race/post-race menu; the short name of the car you driving is simply R33GT-R instead of R33GT-R Vspec, as well as the Arcade Mode car listings (0x4B5C4 to 0x4B6DC in original US release of the game, when in Arcade Mode menus) listing nr34n instead of nv34n.
