    Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R - Now available in LHD

    Hello all, I wanted to share some big news of what we've been working on!

    We made the product launch this weekend in Netherlands:



    Designed and developed over an 18 month period by ex-Nissan R&D staff:
    Zero compromise conversion, retaining all original equipment.
    First deliveries to be made in early 2011.

    Much more details and photographs to follow!

    I appreciate that most skyline owners enjoy sitting on the right, but feedback from this show demonstrated their is a market out there for LHD!


    Regards

    That is a lot of work for sure that you guys have invested into that. Not for me, but very interesting concept. Good Luck.

    +1, I'd be interested in a kit like this too, so long as it's cost effective. LHD GTR, best of all worlds IMO.

    Our goal from day one was to strive to acheive Nissan levels of quality...

    Please see some photos of our conversion that i've managed to pull together, despite the ongoing work on the cars.

    It's not 100% perfect yet, but it will be when we get ready to deliver cars in January 2011

    I guess in country's that dont allow RHD this service would be usefull..


    looks like a lot of time went into it..

    I love the conversion. Beautiful work guys! Everyone should be able to appreciate this with the recent clamp down on RHD vehicles in Canada. Sure would be nice to be able to see turning left as well Any plans for the R32 in the future?

    (Take a pill, get an enima, or have a puff and relax. Way too early in the morning for such agression -g )

    as far as this LHD conversion goes i have a few questions and comments:

    1) don't the turbo's really heat up the brake fluid and clutch system fluids? the master cylinders for both are positioned right above the rear (hottest) turbo!
    2) that is very near spot on as a conversion in my books, excellent work and fantastic attention to detail.
    3) you may very well have a good market for such things here in Quebec once the prices start to rise again (since for now Quebec is the only province that has banned all new RHD imports)

    #3 being said... do you have any representation here in canada yet? if not, shoot me a PM... i'd be interested in talking business.

    Not a big issue, RHD Supra and Soarers just run heat shields. Never personally had an issue.
