Nissan Skyline - Big Bad Dave
An editor at the magazine I work for asked me this question for an article he is writing.

How much would I have to pay for a brand new top of the range Nissan Skyline in the UK. Would it have to be imported? Any other information?

I didn?t even know they still made them.

Cheers, Dave

Car by car breakdown has them stopping at 2002. The R34 definitely was sold through the main dealers and possibly the R33 was.

The new GTR is not a Skyline and was featured in Top Gear mag at least and i daresay other mags a couple of months ago. It's not a Skyline because it's no longer a coupe version of the saloon. But it's not out yet either.


You can't buy a brand new Skyline.

a quick search on Auto Trader gives these cars:

I want one! Just doesn't fit on my drive (and other excuses...)

Cheers for that Mare, I have told them and taken all the credit.

Nice one.

Looks like these people will get you a new shape Skyline coupe as a grey import. But as mare says its not the GTR, and whats the point of a Skyline in the UK if its not a GTR?

If I won a few quid I'd buy an R-32 GTR with a nicely elevated power output.

The new shape skyline is basically a tarted up 350Z. They are sold in the US as an Infinity G35. I can't imagine a Nissan badged Skyline and 350Z in the same market competing for the same customers. The Skyline/G35 is a 2+2 (just) and the 350Z is a 2 seater, but even so the two cars are too similar for it to be worth Nissan's time and effort.

Japan - Both the Nissan Fairlady Z (Their name for the 350Z) and the Nissan Skyline Coupe and saloons are sold side by side.

The new Skyline may share some similarities with the G35/350Z, but the results will be quite different.

First, the new Skyline will have 4 wheel drive (instead of RWD) and probably a twin-turbo V6, expected to produce in excess of 400bhp. I'd hardly put that in the same class as the 350Z.

The new Skyline is already out and it doesn't have 4WD or twin turbos. You may be confusing the GTR or V-spec model with the garden variety Skyline.
