1992 Nissan Skyline GT-R Colors - Production of Each Paint Code - KH2 - 732 - KL0 - TH1 - AH3 -BL0

KL0 Silver R32 GT-R
1992 Nissan Skyline GT-R colors and production numbers

FAST - Nissan's parts ordering system, has a way to look up cars by chassis number. From the chassis number you can find out the equipment originally installed on the car "the options", the color codes, date of production, and a few other details.

Not an original R32 GT-R color
Now that IVI - importavehicle.com is importing and selling a lot of 25 year old Nissan Skyline GT-R's in the USA, we get a lot of questions about colors. It always seems that most of the cars are - dark grey. The color is called Gunmetal - Gun Grey, or Gun Grey Metallic. The color code KH2 was the campaign color of the car, so it was the one that was in all the brochures.

It seems that the FAST database is missing a lot of cars (664 in 1989, 969 in 1990, 981 in 1991 ). Our best guess is the cars that have been de-registered have been removed from the database.  So exported cars, crashed cars, or other cars may not show up. However we can pull numbers from what are listed.

BNR32 Color Codes
#KH2 - Gun Grey Metallic
#KG1 - Jet Silver Metallic
#TH1 - Dark Blue Pearl
#AH3 - Red Pearl Metallic
#732 - Black Pearl Metallic
#326 - Crystal White
#KL0 - Spark Silver Metallic
#BL0 - Greyish Blue Pearl (special order)
#AN0 - Wine Red

In 1992, Nissan Skyline GT-R chassis codes - VIN numbers- started at chassis number 215654, or BNR32-215654 and went to chassis number BNR32-223298.  Although FAST and one other reference differ.

223298-215654= 7644 cars for 1992

Total of 7229 cars paint codes pulled for 1992, and  KH2 was the majority again with 37%  of the cars being gunmetal. Second this time, 326 - white with 22%. Third was KL0 silver with 17%. Fourth 732- black with 12%. Fifth  Red - AH3 with 8% of the total cars. TH1 blue - 3%. The special order BL0 was on 1% of the cars, or 53 cars that we pulled records for.

There are still a few weird ones near the beginning/end of the years. Your mileage may vary.

In 1991, Nissan Skyline GT-R chassis codes - VIN numbers- started at chassis number 13745, or BNR32-013745 and went to chassis number BNR32-017467 (07/91) in the early model. Although for some reason chassis number BNR32-013748, BNR32-013749, and BNR32-013752 to BNR32-013759 are listed as 12/90. Then chassis number 212001 started the middle model run. BNR32-212001 to BNR32-215653. Although FAST and one other reference differ.

17467-13745 = 3722 cars - 10 listed as 12/90 cars = 3712 early cars
215653-212001 = 3652 cars
3722+3652 = 7374 cars for 1991

Total of 6393 cars paint codes pulled for 1991, and  KH2 was the majority again with 56%  of the cars being gunmetal. A distant second was 732, black with 14%. Third place tie for the two silvers. The early silver was KG1 with 7%, the middle silver being KL0 and 7%. Just behind the silvers was 326- white with 7%.  Red - AH3 moved up with 5% of the total cars. TH1 blue - 3%. The special order BL0 was on 1% of the cars, or 46 cars that we pulled records for.

Bar added in door (50kg weight increase)
Projector light modified(H3C->H1)

In 1990, Nissan Skyline GT-R chassis codes - VIN numbers- started at chassis number 5084, or BNR32-005084 and went to chassis number BNR32-013744. Starting in December 1989(the first 6 cars) Nissan built the NISMO version. All gunmetal. Chassis numbers BNR32-100001 to BNR32-100560.  Although FAST and one other reference differ.

Total of 7691 cars paint codes pulled for 1990, and in another huge surprise KH2 dominated with 68%  of the cars being gunmetal. A distant second was 732, black with 15%. Third place - silver only saw 10% of the bodies. TH1 - or one of two blues that are seen on R32s only showed up on 4% of the cars. Last place, but always faster, red with only 3% of the cars being red.  In a surprise, July 1990 there were five #326 (crystal white) produced, and one in August. These may have been race cars or prototypes.  Chassis numbers. BNR32-010555, BNR32-010561, BNR32-010562, BNR32-010566, BNR32-011371.

Even though this list is missing (13744-05084=) 8660 - 7691 = 969 cars, its a pretty good guess at the numbers and percentage of cars in each color available in 1990.

Now for the totals 1989-1990.  BNR32-000054 to BNR32-013744. NISMO R32 chassis numbers BNR32-100001 to BNR32-100560 (all KH2).

70% of the cars were KH2, or Gunmetallic Grey, no wonder its hard to find other colors.
