With popularity of R32s being at a peak it was just natural that we had to show you this one, as Giuseppe’s R32 is one of the very few prime examples outside Japan. He has owned this particular Skyline for 10 years now so you can imagine how much work he has put into it to be standing there the way it is now.

Before the Skyline, he’s owned an Integra which went straight up for sale as soon as he rode a R32 back in ’04. Being determined he went through the process of importing his very own example which finally arrived half a year later.

The initial plans were mild. But as usual plans change.

First thing that was done was swapping the engine. By now Giuseppe has gone through 3 RB25s!

In the beginning it was meant to be a weekend or track car in which he could learn to drift, but as one thing leads to another, as well as thanks to an eye-opening trip to Japan, the decision was made to turn his ride into a full blown street machine that is a perfect reflection of Giuseppe’s personality.

All that makes him the proud owner of one of the most unique Skylines in the entire scene.

And Giuseppe made a point of saying thanks to a bunch of people! First off Lexie his wife and Marco his brother, Ryan and Jimmy from Vex Performance, Gary and Cort from Urbanx, Devon, Dion and John! Also a shoutout to Team Royalty that Giuseppe is a part of!
