Question Difference between 95 & 96 and v-spec or non v-spec

As the topic says, I am wonderin if there is much of a difference between the 1995 GTR r33 and the 96 GTR r33? Also is there a noticable difference between the V-spec and non V-spec?

There are no power differences what so ever. The main differences is in the suspension, and diffs.

The non-vspec uses a viscus clutch system for the front and rear diffs while the Vspec use a mechanical.
The Vspec has slightly stiffer suspension though some will argue that is not true. I know two people presonally with these cars and the vspec had slightly better overall suspension.

There is a slight difference though subtal in the front bumpers while the interior is the same. Some of the Vspecs came with white faced gauges while some didn't. That could have been an option.

Also I have seen two Vspecs one in both years with Gold emblems. Talking to one of the owners they suspect it was a gold key edition but I have yet to confirm this by any viable source. Other than that listed it is very hard to tell the difference even looking close between the two.

The ATTESSA in the V-spec also reacts quicker than the non V-spec. Suspension is different, harder and lower, than non V.
The exterior difference between the two is the V-spec got rear spats as part of the side skirts, the rest is the same. The front only changed with the year. I also think that there was a bit more use of purple in the V-spec interior.

It was sitting on the lot for $29,995 NZD. I paid $28,000 NZD with taxes and on road costs.

Wow, thats really good, I was always ignorant to the cost of the skyline, I thought they were all about $60,000 + because someone in the recycler had one for sale here in the U.S for $60,000, how much would it cost for me to buy and ship one to the U.S

Talking About motorex

There is a place located in Idaho (I think thats where it is) and they will recieve your Skyline from a port in Washington. They only charge 6000-8000, they have all the blueprints and can legalize your skyline 100%.

Shipping to the States from NZ shouldn't be all that much considering what you are buying. I believe it would be around $1,500 US possibly less depending on insurances.

Cost here in US dollars is half of what I posted roughly. Now complying it is a different stroy. Honestly not sure what the charges are anymore as I keep hearing different values.
