Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R 40th anniversary

In 2019 Nissan unveiled the R35 Nissan GT-R 50th anniversary edition. So how is it possible that the R33 Skyline GT-R celebrated its 40th anniversary in 1997?
The R35 Nissan GT-R celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first Skyline GT-R in 1969. The PGC-10, Hakosuka, first Nissan GT-R debuted as a sedan and was only offered as a coupe in 1970.
The R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R Autech celebrates the 40th anniversary of the first Skyline, originally produced by Prince Motor Company in 1957. Only 416 units were released in 1997 and 1998, it shares the body of a Skyline R33 sedan but the rear doors and rear fender were a fresh design only for this edition to replicate the blister fenders of a coupe GT-R. Four colors were available, wth the majority of the cars being KR4, or Sonic Silver. A single car was KN6 or Dark Grey Pearl. 
The exterior has a smaller front spoiler and has no rear spoiler. It is in fact the first 4-door Skyline GT-R since the first Skyline GT-R ‘2000GT-R PGC-10 and the last 4-door Skyline GT-R.
The car is a real GT-R and shares the model code BCNR33 with all the other R33 Skyline GT-R. The40th Anniversary has the RB26DETT engine, a 5 speed manual transmission, Brembo brakes  and the ATTESA AWD system.
If you want a more aggressive looking car, you can try the 400R look bodykit. The front bumper, lip, wing, and the right wheels really help to compliment the R33 sedan.
