1991 Nissan Pulsar - Not Approved

1991 Nissan Pulsar, Not Approved for Show or Display

Just our guess, but we imagine when someone applied for Show or Display approval for a 1991 Nissan Pulsar, it was for a GTi-R. Also called Baby Godzilla, this SR20DET powered, ATTESA AWD, hatchback was one of Nissans forays into rallying.

"The Pulsars were manufactured in Japan between August 1990 until November 1994. The total number produced during that time was somewhere between 12,000 and 15,000. It is unclear how many of them were RA and RB models. The first year of production (1990–91) was the largest due to Nissan needing to fulfil the FIA Group A regulations (of 5,000 models total, with 500 of them homologated) in order to enter the model as a manufacturer in the WRC."

Since there were over 12,000 cars produced over the entire production run, they are way outside the realm of Show or Display.   However there was a NISMO edition, which they only produced 21.  Rare, and hard to find, but they probably would have got approval.

  • Nismo: Nismo offered a "complete car" version based on the RB model featuring many of the Nismo rally options (such as suspension, limited slip differentials, seats, roll cage and foot rests). A confirmed total of 21 were produced, all of which are individually numbered on a special Nismo VIN plate on the firewall. Some were used by Nissan and Nismo as promotional vehicles, the rest were ordered by private buyers. They were priced at¥3,140,000.

However, the first Pulsar GTi-R were produced in August 1990. So, here in just a few months, they start to turn 25 years old. So if you are looking for one, check out -
