$200,000 price tag for 327km/h Bathurst Skyline

THE car that became the star of the 2023 Bathurst 12 Hour event has hit the market and is up for grabs.

Brad Sherriff’s R32 Nissan Skyline caught the attention of many, not least Motorsport Australia, when it blazed down Conrod Straight at 327km/h.

Sherriff’s own data indicates it actually reached 338km/h – no small feat given 300 is the proverbial magic number at the Mountain.

The Skyline soon was benched following the implementation of a power-to-weight ratio limit for Sports Sedans and wound up in the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania in Launceston.

Now, it has emerged via my105.com, listed at a non-negotiable price of $200,000.

The advertisement happily leans into its sense of infamy.

“If you want to own the red Nissan than blew down Conrod at over 200 miles an hour this is your chance, or maybe you wish to wind 30hp out of it and run it under the new 1.5:1 regs,” the listing reads.

“This car has the full catalogue of go-fast parts and is offered for sale ready to race as it was presented last raced at Bathurst 12 Hour.”

V8 Sleuth head of publications Stefan Bartholomaeus delved deeper into what makes the R32 Skyline tick in a special feature, accessible here.

Sherriff has since built a new R34 Skyline to race in the 2024 National Sports Sedan Series.
