The problem with this is it's actually worse than the original in performance. It should be the opposite.

How so? This is an older car based on three of the R35's predecessors after all.

Basically how much you have to pay to 'upgrade/convert' the car. The custom sabre is better than the regular sabre, same with the Nero custom and a few others. It would make sense that all customs should be far better than the original.

The key difference between the examples you're referencing and this car, is that the upgrades turn the other cars into souped up versions of themselves rather than an older generation as is the case here. Not all cars that are upgradable at Benny's perform better than their stock counterparts, take the Primo Custom for example, it's considerably slower than a regular Primo despite being a pricey upgrade. When it comes to why this car costs so much to upgrade, I think it's because:

1. The base model car is free to purchase if you have a social club account.

2. I think they tried to mimic the astronomical prices R32 and early R33 Skylines go for in the US.

This is just one of the cars I have sprayed in gold because I've worked for it. Taking this car to upgrade at Benny's seems like an astronomical waste to me. Which is why I also own 3 Sultan RS and only 1 has seen the inside of Bennys. 

 

So please tell me! 😈

 

You know you want to! 😈 

 

How do I benefit from the 😈

Slightly touched it up, I'm satisfied with it for now:

I feel like the R33 deserves some love, sure it was no R32 or R34, but it was still a great car for it's time.

Is it? It seems to be on pair if not marginally better. However, Comet and Itali GTB are actually worse in custom versions.

In my own testing, the Primo Custom accelerates slower than the regular one. I have both fully maxed out performance wise and the standard primo hits 60 mph sooner than the custom.

They're pretty much identical as far as Broughy's CCGP/top speed tests are concerned.

Revisiting my original Elegy Retro, which is a Wangan Midnight replica. Only changed the headlights to white.

The r33 is the best and don't let anyone tell you otherwise okay

 

I only wish it had an extra gear in gt sport. The r34 feels so much faster because of it.

R33 is crazy to own here in Canada, need to get all parts shipped from Japan. Friend of mine owned one, waited 6 months for a new clutch.

 

He said, "benefit of doubt, this was years ago, it could be different now. Main reason I got rid of it, it wasn't like I could go to an auto shop and use any part they had."

Not sure how guys are doing it here. We got some r32s running around. Cant imagine getting sh*t for rare sh*t, like a Cosmos or something.

So, I've never really been a huge fan of this car, mostly for its mods, but apparently at some point, I converted one and tried to make it look the part of an LM.

I never found wheels that suited the look, gave up, and genuinely forgot it was in my garage for a good while until pulling it out to film it a little.
