You Can Now Buy A Brand New Nissan Skyline GT-R RB26 Inline-Six Engine

One of the problems with owning a classic car is finding parts not sold in stores. The internet has helped significantly with this problem, but engines and body panels are particularly hard to find, especially for vehicles that were sold in relatively small numbers. As a result, owners usually search in forums, Craiglists and eBay.

Nissan understands this problem and its NISMO Heritage Parts division recently announced it will offer an assortment of new components for classic Skyline GT-Rs including the BNR32, BCNR33 and BNR34.

Some of the most notable components are the engine block and cylinder head for the RB26 engine. They cost ¥170,000 ($1,533 / £1,175 / €1,365) and ¥187,000 ($1,686 / £1,293 / €1,501), respectively. The company will also offer the block of the beefier RB26DETT N1 engine. Understandably, this costs more, as it has a list price of ¥425,000 ($3,833 / £2,938 / €3,412).

NISMO Heritage Parts will also offer an assortment of other components for the BNR32. These include a front bumper, a replacement roof and new rear body panels. These components range in prices from ¥85,800 ($773 / £593 / €688) to ¥180,000 ($1,623 / £1,245 / €1,445).

All of the aforementioned parts will begin shipping on April 1st and will be joined by a handful of other components including everything from a wiper motor to a muffler assembly. Nissan will also offer a new engine harness to get your RB26 engine up and running.
