First Nissan Skyline GTR Imported into America 100 Percent Federally Legal

Palm Harbor, FL (PRWEB) August 02, 2014

Montu Motors, an automotive importer specializing in Japanese classic cars, is pleased to have become the first company to successfully import into the U.S. a 100% legal Nissan Skyline GTR R32.

Due to the specifications of certain governmental regulating agencies like the EPA, DOT, NHTSA, and FMVSS, historically it has been illegal to import the Nissan Skyline GTR R32 and numerous other high-performance Japanese cars. However, a stipulation states that any cars that are 25 years old or older are not required to abide by these regulations and can therefore be driven legally in the United States.

Montu Motors pulled up to the United States/Canada border in a Nissan Skyline GTR R32 at exactly 12 oclock midnight on August 1, 2014, making their crossing precisely 25 years after the vehicle left the factory in 1989. Now this classic racing car that dominated competition for so many years is finally available to the American public. Auto enthusiasts and fans of The Fast and the Furious will recognize the Skyline GTR R32 as one of the most prized automobiles of the 1980s and 1990s, and finally they will be able to own one for themselves, thanks to the 25 year rule.

Equipped with the RB26DETT, arguably one of the best motors ever built, the Skyline GTR R32 offers exceptional performance, power, and speed. One of the most unique features of the Skyline GTR R32 is the ability to transfer up to 50 percent of the total power from the rear wheels to the front wheels, providing the driver with an unparalleled sensation of control and a highly enhanced feel for the road.

Importing the Nissan Skyline GTR R32 marks the beginning of Montu Motors efforts to provide U.S. citizens with the most unique and desirable classic Japanese vehicles. More cars will follow soon.

About Montu Motors:

MontuMotors specializes in importing Japanese classic cars, which are imported into the United States by MontuMotors. Their vehicles are 100% exempt from EPA, DOT, NHTSA and FMVSS due to their age. The staff at MontuMotors offers exemplary customer service; they are qualified to answer any questions one may have regarding importing cars into USA. For more information, please visit
