Ugly duckling to swan (Skyline HR30)

June 24, 2011 in nissan skyline r30


It is always nice to see how a car progresses in time, especially if the car transforms from an ugly duckling to a swan like this Skyline R30 owned by Zeki did back in the mid nineties:

You’d probably say it is nothing special and just a bone stock RS Turbo on a set of SSR Hiro V1-R wheels.

Well, consider that the car started out as this bone stock Skyline HR30:

After six months a Skyline RS grille, a set of RS Watanabe rims and a PMCS sticker were added:

After four more months the Watanabes were swapped for a set of Work E-WIng Fin rims, a boot spoiler and a set of smoked DR30 tail lights:

He also added a Recaro seat and a pair of yellow fog lights at the same time…

Followed by a pair of white foglights, a set of Hiro V1-R rims and a RS Turbo sticker on the rear door:

And finally the iron mask was applied:

The only differences with a RS Turbo are the L engine under the hood and the missing rear window wiper.
The ugly duckling became a real swan!
