I know that the Laurel share many components with the Skyline, but can somebody explain this:




Is the engine an RB?

Damn thats cool, looks like the front and rear ends of a laurel have been grafted onto a 2dr gtst as the roof and rear guards look like skyline ones.
Ver 3 WRX STi type RA racer

Yip, it's an RB. Looks like it's still got Laurel doors cause the b pillar looks different. May be a Skyline turret on a chopped down Laurel chassis?
Got any more pics? Interior side shots...

at least the mirrors are from a skyline!
The question is: Nissan did it or it is custom made?

Only hint:  It was at last year Tokyo auto show.

Someone has spent alot of time on a custom 2door sky-rel. Very cool result though, it would def start a new trend if it wasnt such an involving conversion

I think its actually an s13 silvia. The front struts have a 3 bolt pattern at the top where r32 has only 2.
Also the passenger side dash in the picture from the rear angle looks more like that of an s13 to me.
Could be wrong though....

Struts and dash are from the Laurel. In fact everything is genuine Laurel except it's a 2-door, that's what really bogging me! :splat:
But can somebody comfirm that Nissan never made a 2-door Laurel C33?

There is no way that is a laurel dash. Looks completely different to the one I have in front of me. S13 and C33 use the same suspension.

I reckon the rear quarter windows look s13.. most of the car looks s13 but the engine bay is too long for an s13?
