Nismo Heritage parts launches 74 parts for R32 GT-R

Nissan has begun its NISMO Heritage program, which manufactures parts for its iconic cars. The program kicks off with 74 parts for the R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R, but there could be more in the future.



Since Nissan announced the program in April fans have been eager to know exactly which long out of production parts would be offered. Now we know, and it’s no surprise that the majority of them are items needed to pass Japan’s Shaken roadworthiness inspections. That includes a lot of rubber hoses and for the emissions system, but also items like power steering lines shown above.



Also included in the first wave of release are the crank pulley, clutch lines, and those clear plastic fluid reservoirs that discolor with age. And what owner wouldn’t want supple new wiring harnesses, but those are scheduled for future release. Perhaps most impressively, an entirely new front bumper cover is on the list, for a mere ¥108,000 (about $1,000 USD). Cosmetic items like the GT-R badge, V-Spec decals and emissions labels are also available.



It should be noted that these parts are manufactured under NISMO and not Nissan itself, so ordering should be done through NISMO retailers. There are two categories of parts. Genuine production parts will be part of the inventory and can be ordered through NISMO shops, though there’s a disclaimer that it could take several months. Then there are “lot production” parts, which will only be produced if orders reach a certain number.



The R32 is currently the only model in the program. Nissan acknowledged that it is due to the sheer enthusiasm for the car and its classic status, with many customers wanting to keep theirs on the road or to be able to pass them down to their children. NISMO says that if the program is successful, they will also consider making parts for the R33 and R34 Skyline GT-Rs. You can see a full list of parts at the official NISMO website.

If BMW did something like this with six cylinder crate engines for the E36/46 etc it would be amazing. I've got the 2001 BMW parts and accessories catalogue at home and the sheer variety of support they gave back then would be incredible if it returned to support the enduring popularity of the older cars.

BMW built a whole 2002 using spare parts

BMW and Merc are very good in that departement with the spare parts. VAG seized parts after 10-ish years...

Nissan doing this is great, as some people wanted to play clever duck and bought bulk stocks of parts to resell them at crazy prices.... GTR parts are already expensive, and those wanna be "investors" didn't help that situation.

This is good news for Skyline owners

Not only Skyline users, but Silvia (S110-S13) users and March (K10-K11) users, too. I really want to see a K10 SuperTurbo, in the US someday. Parts could even be dirt-cheap, if Nissan determines each price for various retro-models. Imagine, NISMO making crazy-OEM parts for the March (K10) SuperTurbo's PLASMA MA09 engine. (Ex. Heavily modded dual-charger.)

I wonder if this move is in part with the recent price hike the generation has seen after being eligible for import in the States.

this is still surprising, considering everyone wants to go electric... yet manufacturers are supporting car guys
