The revised GT-R features an engine with revised mapping, valve timing changes, larger intakes, and a revised exhaust system that increases power to 395 kW (537 hp; 530 hp) and 607 Nm (448 lb⋅ft) of torque from 3,200 to 6,000 rpm. Changes also include a new stiffer carbon composite front strut holder, larger front brake discs, new lighter and stiffer wheels and revised Dunlop tires. Cosmetic changes include a new front bumper with integrated LEDs. The front bumper improves cooling of the radiator and front brakes while reducing drag. A new rear diffuser improves downforce and includes additional rear cooling channels. The interior has been revised to improve quality. The new model is offered with a new CARWINGS HDD navigation system with advanced entertainment features and a USB port with iPod connection. The revised GT-R was available in Japan, Europe, North America and other regions from mid-November 2010 and February 2011.   If you know of other legally permitted ways in which you can purchase a Skyline GTR in the United States, we would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment below! On 25 and 26 June 2011, Schulze Motorsport`s Nissan GT-R with starting number 71 competed in the 2011 Nürburgring 24 Hours, driven by Michael Schulze, Tobias Schulze, Kazunori Yamauchi and Yasuyoshi Yamamoto. The car finished the race in 36th place overall and, after overcoming several technical problems, took a victory in the SP 8T class. It was the first time a Nissan GT-R had competed in the Nürburgring 24 Hours.
The following year, Nissan competed in the SP8T class with 2 GT-R Club Track Edition as a factory team driven by Team Nissan and Team GT Academy, with both cars finishing 99th and 30th overall – they were the only competitors in the SP-8T class that year. As far as we know, there is no way to make a Nissan Skyline legal in the US by modifying it – other than being able to provide other modified specimens for crash test and compliance purposes, which is clearly not feasible. There are a few occasional exceptions to the rule, such as: Buying a model that has sold less than 500 models, but you can count on them to have an extremely high price, and you will also be limited on the number of miles you can fly in a year under the „show and display” program. One of TVR`s most iconic models came in the form of Tuscany, a simple approach to building a raw British sports car that would offer one of the purest driving experiences one can have in a legal car on the road. The first models of the R33 GTR will also become legal for import and compliance, and by 2024 you should be able to start importing the R34 GTR (provided there are no additional changes in legislation or further tightening of emissions and environmental regulations by then, which is still a risk in the current climate). A special package for the GT-R Nismo, which will be equipped after the purchase of the Nismo model. This package contains the parts used by the original GT-R Nismo to set its lap time at the Nürburgring. Upgrades include a reprogrammed ECU, readjusted suspension springs and shock absorbers, new anti-roll bars, new front brake pads, a new carbon fiber front wing with aerodynamic tilt, a new carbon fiber front splitter and a larger carbon fiber rear spoiler with two height adjustment options and 12 angles, new carbon fiber intercooler tubes, new front and rear limited-slip differentials, new all-carbon Recaro bucket seats and a carbon fiber partition instead of the rear seats. According to Nissan, this package removes 64 kg (143 lbs) of weight from the standard GT-R Nismo and is also available for the 2017 GT-R Nismo model year. This package is available in A-Kit and B-Kit. These improvements in the A-Kit, but in the B-Kit, only include the suspension system, braking system, anti-roll bars, all carbon fiber rear spoilers, front fenders and front splitter, both ESM and TCM, and a driver`s seat.  Motorex had only provided R33 for testing purposes and then claimed that the data for R32 and R34 were identical (which was a lie) and therefore would not require further testing.
Once the car arrives at the Motorex warehouse, it is delivered to an independent emissions lab for EPA testing. The process can sometimes take weeks or months for the car to be EPA certified. Then, all EPA test results are compiled and sent to DOT for further analysis. This includes sending all related documents and photographic evidence that the car is modified and legal for the road. After that, the DOT will send a bail release to Motorex to complete the legalization process. That`s why we decided to write a comprehensive guide that will bring you all the fascinating facts and answer the all-too-common question. „Why are Nissan skylines illegal in the United States?” In the 2011 season, the Swiss Racing Team switched to Lamborghini, giving Sumo Power four GT-Rs, two under the name Sumo Power GT and two under JR Motorsports. In short, the Nissan Skyline GTR was/is actually illegal in the US (depending on which generation you`re talking about). However, this has already been done by a company called „Motorex”, which we will discuss in more detail later in this guide.
But for now, we`re just going to say that they`ve ruined any chance anyone could do it. In September 2014, Motor Trend conducted a test drive with the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo at the Willow Springs – Street of Willow Circuit. Test driver Randy Pobst set a lap time of 1:19.07 minutes, making him the fastest production car on the track. The 2014 model year GT-R Track Edition ran in 1:19.55 minutes and took second place, the 2012 model year GT-R Premium turned in 1:20.25 minutes and took third place in the road-legal production car lap records.   Unfortunately, this shows how willing the government was to address the illegal importation situation – it was a pretty serious business! There can be several reasons for this, usually due to loopholes in the law or potentially illegal activities. We`ll explore these options later in this guide. Fans of the Gran Turismo and Fast and Furious series will have to wait until 2024 to legally import the R34 Skyline to the US, unless it is an import of MotoRex, as this model is still below the 25-year mark. You`ve probably heard the rumors about why the latest Nissan Skyline R33 and R34 GT-R models are currently allowed to be illegally imported into the United States. The U.S. Department of Transportation has allowed customers to keep their cars. Since the cars were purchased legally, there will be no point in confiscating or confiscating the vehicles.
In a bizarre turn of events, all of the horizons released by Motorex are still technically illegal in the U.S. unless the cars comply with NHTSA`s new regulations for imported vehicles. During this period, the largest exporter to the land of the rising sun is A.I. Craft, which belongs to Wataru Noto. Hiro chose AI in 1996. Craft with the dream of exporting Nissan Skyline to the United States. In June 2014, the Nissan GT-R Nismo was unveiled at the Goodwood Festival. The car ran on the Goodwood Hill climb, driven by Jann Mardenborough, recorded a time of 49.27 seconds, making it the fastest production car on the road.  A small number of R34s were imported into the country by a company called MotoRex after the end of the original production.
