it is an ex Mark Skaife Skyline and it did come after Fury left the team & it also isnt faster than me  :p (well at 1.44 it might be a little faster than me!)

This is the first of the HR31 Skylines built by Gibson Motorsport (Australian Factory Works Team)

It originally raced in Peter Jackson livery and was driven by George Fury and Glen Seaton. It was then changed back to it's current Nissan Special Vehicles livery and was driven by Mark Skaife. In 1990 it was sold to Chris Lambden and raced in the Beaurepaires livery.

This car, in it's current livery contested 18 rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship from 1988 - 1990 that included 2 Bathurst's and a Sandowne. In 1988 it lapped Bathurst in 2.21.92 driven by George Fury. In 1990, racing in Beaurepaires livery, it finished in 9th position at Bathurst.

Since Group A cars have been included into the 5th category (Historic Racing) six years ago this car has won the Group A Touring Car Championship FOUR times and came second in 2008. It currently laps Eastern Creek International Raceway in 1 min 44 seconds.

Specifications:

Group A Nissan Skyline HR31 GTS-R
Weight: 1115kg
Engine: Nissan RB20 2.0 Litre 6 cylinder Twin Cam Turbo
Power: 520 hp@ 1.7 bar boost @7800rpm
Transmission: 5 Speed Hollinger crash gearbox. Two wheel drive
This car is sold in race ready with a near new engine and a complete set of spares (almost enough for another car) including Fresh engine and gearbox.
