You'd be surprised at what these two opposites share.
On the surface it’s stupid to compare the BMW E30 M3 and the Nissan Skyline R32. Sure, they share some similarities. Both have two doors and backseats. They both have cool wings and are designed for performance…and, yeah that’s about it. The GT-R has all-wheel drive whereas the E30 M3 is rear-wheel drive. The R32 has the bigger engine, with its turbocharged inline-six good for 276 horsepower. The M3 comes in at about 195 horsepower thanks to its naturally aspirated 2.3-liter inline-four.
So, what do these two cars have in common? According to Doug DeMuro, quite a lot. Basically, he argues that the two ushered in the “performance car kick.” It’s a pretty good argument, so check out the video for yourself.
