    GTI-R Sunny

    The GNN14 was a variation of the GTI-R built for the European Domestic Market (EDM) and badged as a Sunny (the name of the existing N14 in that market). There were both LHD and RHD versions.

     

    Sunny GTI-R (GNN14) Production Numbers

    Over the 4 years that the Sunny GTI-R was produced, there were 3 "phases" of production.

    According to the data available, the total number of GNN14s produced was 771.

    It is under investigation whether the final phase was part of Series 1 or 2 - the dates are (mostly) RNN14 S2, but the VINs are in the sub-100k of S1, and the 2 colours are from both series.

    Location of production is under investigation (there is no "plant" code on the GNN14 VIN plates).

    There were 2 types of of Nissan Sunny GTI-R (GNN14) sold:

    • LHD: Model code EBYNLRN14T*******
    • RHD: Model code EBYNRRN14T*******

    The model code is printed on the VIN plate, located top-centre of the firewall in the engine bay.

     

    Differences in the Sunny GTI-R

    The GNN14 has some parts from the RNN14 RA Series 1, some from the RNN14 RB, and some unique. 

    • VIN: JN1EGNN14U00*****
    • Model: EBYNL*N14*******
    • Produced: 02/1990 - 01/1993 (further dates under investigation)
    • Power: 220ps (217hp, 162kw) (different fuel/ignition map due to lower quality fuel than Japan at the time)
    • Torque: 267Nm (27kgm / 197lb.ft)
    • LHD models produced: 668 (available in many European countries)
    • RHD models produced: 103 (available in England, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta)
    • Boot lid number plate surround: Different design (to fit Euro-size number plates)
    • Speed limiter: None
    • Speedo - LHD: kph
    • Speedo - RHD: mph & kph
    • Gauges - LHD: bar (boost and oil pressure)
    • Gauges - RHD: psi (boost and oil pressure)
    • Clock: Digital (at the base of the tachometer gauge)
    • Umbrella holder: None (solid panel like RNN14 RA S2 - no vent like RNN14 RB)
    • Air conditioning: None (option)
    • Rear light clusters: Lower half divided into 3 sections internally
    • Rear fog lights: Outer globe of each light cluster (switch next to rear demister)
    • Brake lights: Only 1 globe per side (the other used for fogs)
    • Side mirrors: No folding feature (option)
    • Side mirrors: Not colour coded (same as RNN14 RB)
    • Cup holders: None
    • Steering column stalks: Indicators on left, wipers on right
    • Gearstick surround: Rubber (same as RNN14 RB)
    • Shift knob: Plastic (same as RNN14 RB)
    • Upper door trim: Plastic (same as RNN14 RB)
    • Steering wheel: Plastic (same as RNN14 RB) but with GTI-R logo horn button (same as RNN14 RA S1)
    • Rear diff casing: Longer cooling fins (same as RNN14 RB)
    • Headrests: Hollow style (same as RNN14 RA S1)
    • Electrical components: Several have different connectors (ie. starter motor and alternator)
