Introduced in 1989, the R32-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R is one of the greatest Japanese cars of all time. Originally conceived strictly as a homologation special to compete in Group A, the R32 GT-R was both a success on the road and track. Highly sophisticated, the new-for-1989 Skyline GT-R featured variable four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering. It was powered by a twin-turbo straight six that, due to a gentleman's agreement between the Japanese manufacturers, was rated at just 276 bhp. Even in stock form, it was more powerful but it could very easily be tuned to at least twice the standard rating. Its successes on the racing track, which included victories at Bathurst and Spa-Francorchamps, the R32 GT-R received the nickname 'Godzilla'. As it was very easily modified, the GT-R was and still is very popular with tuners. As a result relatively few original examples have survived. The featured car is one of these rare unmolested R32 GT-Rs. Consigned by its first owner to this week's RM Sotheby's Scottsdale sale, it has covered less than 14,000 km from new. Offered without a reserve and estimated to sell for just $50,000 - $70,000, it is remarkably good value for the cult legend.
Rarer and not nearly as well known is this OSCA 2000S sports racer. It is one of just a handful of OSCAs built by the Maserati brothers equipped with a straight six engine. This twin-cam unit was jointly developed for a two-litre single seater and sports car. The featured example was one of just three sports cars and has an extensive competition history. It was even raced in the Pikes Peak hill-climb during the 1960s, powered by a Chevrolet V8 engine. We captured this very rare OSCA at last year's Modena Trackdays and Chantilly Arts & Elegance.
