NISMO Heritage programme to offer parts for cars in Japan
Nissan has launched a heritage service for some of its performance models, enabling owners to keep enjoying them for longer.
New parts will go on sale in Japan on the 1st of December as part of the NISMO Heritage programme, which is being jointly run by Nissan Motor Co, Nissan Motor Sports International, Autech Japan and their suppliers. Initially, NISMO Heritage will offer parts for the R32 Skyline GT-R, which was made between 1989 and 1995.
The R32 enjoyed a great deal of success in championships and races across the world, including winning the Spa 24 in 1991, the Australian Touring Car Championship for the first time in 1991, and winning every Japanese Touring Car Championship race during the 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993 seasons.
NISMO has for many years had a close relationship with Nissan Skyline GT-R owners. After studying the remanufacturing and resupplying of discontinued parts for the R32 – especially ones that are indispensable for the car to drive or to pass regular vehicle inspections in Japan – NISMO has decided to sell about 80 parts at the outset of the programme. These include harnesses, hoses, emblems and other exterior components. Further consideration will be given to expanding the range of R32 parts on offer, as well as broadening the programme’s scope to include the R33 and R34 GT-R models. When certain parts can’t be reproduced due to operational difficulties at original suppliers, NISMO will consider methods of replacing these parts using substitute, rebuilt or overhauled products, as well as NISMO-tuned parts.
