1993 Nissan Skyline GT-R Prototype

The ninth-generation Skyline (R33) was launched in August 1993, though the GT-R launch was slightly delayed: following its display in the autumn of 1993 at the 30th Tokyo Motor Show, it was finally launched in January 1995. This particular vehicle is the prototype displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show; the front and road-wheel design differ from the production model.
