    There were a couple of good article about the Skyline in the UK "Car" and "Top Gear" magazines when the latest came out. They explained the AWD system as electronically controlled.

    ATTESA-ETS
    Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All - Electronic Torque Split

    Under normal driving conditions, the car would operate as RWD. But a computer would determine if there is loss of traction and bring torque to the front wheels. Allows 50-50 torque split.

    HICAS
    High Capacity Active Steering

    Computer controlled active rear wheel steering. Freaky, eh?

    So, it's AWD only when it needs it. I think I remember hearing that there are some bugs in these systems in the R-34, but nothing is perfect.

    Remember not all skylines are GTRs so not all skylines have AWD. The lower models GTS-T are RWD.

    That's exactly what I wanted to post as I was reading down. It's a very good point to make, that the Skyline is only a model line series(Skyline was actually a company absorbed by Nissan).

    There's the GTS, (RB25/NA/RWD), GTS-T (RB25/turbo/RWD), GTS-4 (RB25/NA/AWD) and of course the GTR (RB26/Twin-turbo/AWD). I just got back after living in Japan for three years. I priced a 2002 STI WRX on the dealer lot and it was about $19,000 with a yen rate of 130 in May of this year.

    I don't think that is a R33 GTR. Those rims don't look like they are alloys and that spoiler looks like a GTS wing and not a GTR wing. IMO it is pretty stupid to pay 60K for an R33 when you can buy a you an R34 for 34K.

    You can buy an R34 for 34k in Japan, but not here...

    But Koua's right...I don't think that's a GT-R...the wheels and spoiler aren't right...

    An R34 GTR is around $45,000, a V-spec will run about another $8,000 and a V_spec 2 another $3,000. Of course this is subject to the yen rate. The actual prices are around 5,000,000 yen and 6,000,000 yen respectively.
