After a decade and a half since the extremely rare Kenmeri was felled by the fuel crisis, the three most iconic letters in Japanese performance were back.

Twenty-seven years later, we can look back at the birth of a legend and marvel at how the E-BNR32 chassis Skyline GT-R tore a hole for itself in history, the right car at the right time. It was a technological powerhouse, an utterly dominant force on the racing circuit, and at the same time relatively common. Made [...]
