The Engine & Transmission
The R33 keeps the RB26DETT engine from the R32 GT-R. The power is still the same with an official 280hp (206kw) at 6800rpm, although inofficially it is ass-umed to be around 302hp. Increased peak turbo-boost of 0.84bar, an improved intercooler and changed computer control parameters make for a higher torque of 375Nm (271 lb-ft) at 4400rpm. As usual, power is deployed via the 5-speed Getrag gearbox and ATTESA-ETS to all four wheels.

The Suspension
The rear-suspension's travel is increased and the suspension anchor points have been stiffened all around. Cornering is further improved by Super-HICAS which now also features front and rear yaw rate control.

The Brakes
All versions now get the Brembo brakes already known from the R32 GT-R V-Spec.

The Aerodynamics
The stiff one-piece rear-wing of the R32 has been dropped in favor of a dual-piece one on the R33. The new wing is adjust-able in four different angles (0, 6, 12 and 18) which equal four levels of downforce. Additionally, aero-dynamic efficiency has been improved to a regular Cd figure of 0.35, which naturally worsens to a figure of 0.39 with the rear wing at an angle of 18.

The V-Spec Version
The R33 V-Spec gets the Pro version of ATTESA-ETS with revised torque proportioning, a stiffer and 10mm lower suspension and other mechanical changes.
The R-33 Skyline GTR was introduced in 1995. Body size was enlarged over the r32 Skyline, length of 4,675mm, width of 1,780mm, height of 1,360mm, wheel-base of 2,720mm, and weight of 1,750kg (R-33).
The GT-R V-Spec model features the ATTESA E-TS PRO system that provides integrated control of the driving and braking forces at all four wheels independently, enabling each wheel to deliver its full performance potential. This system consists of ATTESA E-TS for optimum front-to-rear torque split control, Active LSD for optimum control of the torque split to the right and left rear wheels and ABS. Also the GT-R V-spec model adopted a hard-tuned suspension in which the damping force of the shock absorbers, spring constant of the springs and other characteristics have been specifically tuned to match the car's character. The GT-R adopted a rear spoiler with a mechanism that allows a four-way adjustment of the spoiler angle, a front spoiler and side sill protectors. These parts save to optimize the aerodynamic balance at the front and rear along with achieving a better Cd figure of 0.35 compare with that of preceding model of 0.10.
