A Look Back at the Legendary Nissan GT-R Nismo 400R

The Nissan GT-R Nismo 400R was a beast back in the day. In fact, it is one of the most well-known members of the Skyline series. Only 44 of these cars came out from its production line. The car was launched to honor Nissan’s participation at Le Mans back in 1995 and 1996.

The 400R uses a larger version of the RB26DETT engine called the RBX-GT2. This had a larger bore and stoke which meant the block and cylinder head had to be reinforced. Other upgrades included forged connecting rods, a forged crank shaft, reshaped pistons, an N1-spec turbocharger. This produced around 400 bhp and was unique to the 400R.
